More of our roller garage doors have matching box and guides than ever before, our recent colour analysis has shown.
Over 70% of standard colour door orders take advantage of our offer to match the box and guides to the curtain at no extra cost. This number has tripled from 22% since we made this option part of our standard offering two years ago.
We have rearranged our factories and extended its storage to help serve a growing customer base. The new shelter is part of the existing manufacturing facility in Oswestry, Shropshire. The lean-to building can stock up to 46 stillages, housing additional slats to assist with the increase in orders.
We are becoming the go-to manufacturer for large bespoke roller shutters. Readers of the Winter issue of the Door Industry Journal will have seen the 12m shutter we helped to design with a customer, and recently we have received another unique request.
Last year Aluroll won a contract for the manufacture of security shutters for a multinational technology company. Following discussions with the architects handling the project, Aluroll was chosen to design, manufacture and manage the installation of four large bespoke roller shutters.
Aluroll would like to thank all customers for their support throughout 2017. Throughout the year we have been working hard to improve our products and service, and as a result we’ve become better than ever before...
Our Classic roller garage door is now Secured by Design as standard.
Secured by Design approval is a nationally recognised UK Police flagship initiative dedicated to ‘designing out crime’, and widely regarded by homeowners, architects and specifiers as an indication of security and quality.
We are dedicated to providing customers with everything they need to market our products, and their businesses, more effectively. This is why we have an online customer downloads area where we share up-to-date product information.
The SecureRoll roller garage door colour range has recently expanded. New colours include Painted Irish Oak (which is available on all doors) and metallic finish Graphite (available on Classic and Elite). Due to popular demand Velvet Brown (RAL 8014) is now available on all doors. As always, our in-house powder coating allows us to offer special RAL colours.
Aluroll’s new and improved box reinforcement sections are proving increasingly popular with installers. Used on roller garage doors and security shutters where extra support is required (reveal fits or external fits in a windy location), we recommend them as an alternative to Aluroll’s traditional angle stiffeners.
Aluroll pre-code all Somfy wireless safety edges before they are dispatched to customers. This makes things easier for installers and saves time on site.
Although Somfy state in their instructions that the bottom magnet is an optional feature, Aluroll supply them as standard. Please ensure you always fit the bottom magnet regardless of whether the floor is level or uneven. The magnet switches off the bottom edge transmitter, saving battery life and preventing accidental operation. All components are supplied with fixings and installation instructions.
Rather than posting Christmas cards this year we have decided to send this email and make a £300 donation to Hope House instead. This Oswestry-based charity provides care and support to children and their families facing life-shortening conditions...
Our roller garage doors have undergone a makeover. Instead of carrying the Aluroll logo and blue theme like our security shutters, they now have their own SecureRoll branding, complete with a new logo and a modern yellow and grey colour scheme.
We recently asked roller garage door installers why they choose Aluroll over other suppliers in the marketplace. The main reason given was ‘Convenience of Install’, at 42%. When asked what made our roller garage doors so much better, the overwhelming reason given was related to our handsets and safety edge being pre-programmed.
Aluroll would like to thank everyone who participated in our 2016 customer survey. We received an impressive number of responses, including interesting suggestions and ideas which we will use to improve the service and products we offer
Aluroll security shutters have been used on an exciting project recently. Wolverhampton market has been rejuvenated, bringing all of the stalls from indoors to outdoors, using purpose-built cabins made from brightly coloured shipping containers. The finished project was a unique way of adding security to a situation which often has very low security levels.
Last month we announced that we’re matching the box and guides to our standard colour Classic roller garage doors. We’ve had a great response to this change, so we’ve extended this feature to our Compact doors too. This way you'll be able to offer customers an even better product than before, for no extra cost.
Feedback from our customers suggests Chartwell Green and Duck Egg Blue are becoming increasingly popular in the home improvement market. As a result, we've added them to our standard roller garage door colour range.
Aluroll is once again going the extra mile for customers. We can now match the box and guide colours on our Classic roller garage doors, while maintaining our current prices and industry-leading manufacturing times. Your customers get a better product and our trade installers get the same great service, at no extra cost.
We’re always trying to improve the service and products we offer, and customer feedback is an important part of that. Help us by filling in our short survey and you’ll be in with the chance of winning a case of six bottles of high quality wine.
We’ve been really busy lately, trying to get everything in place so we could offer our matching garage door boxes and guides as soon as possible. While this big announcement has dominated conversations here at Aluroll, we’ve still managed to keep one eye on what’s going on around us...
We always talk about the importance of quality products, careful installation and regular maintenance. And this month we spotted a scary reminder of what can go wrong if these procedures aren’t followed.
We’re dedicated to offering competitive prices for our garage doors and shutters, and that extends to our extras too. We have just reduced our wood laminate prices from a 20% surcharge to a 15% surcharge. The special finish is suitable for internal face fitted garage doors (Classic, Compact and Elite), and their security counterparts, the T77 and T55 shutters.
Here at Aluroll we like to use data to gain a better understanding of the roller garage door market. Long term analysis has shown that while white is still our most popular door colour, at 32%, and black is still our second most popular, at 16%, the trend is actually shifting away from traditional monochrome choices.
At the start of the month we told you a few pieces of Aluroll news. Like how our Nigerian branch is setting the pace in capital city Lagos, and how our new locking system is going down really well with installers. It’s also worth noting that we’re changing our garage door order forms soon to make them easier to follow.
We’re the UK’s exclusive distributor of the Eurolook® shutter, a brick formation transparent armour made from polycarbonate links. Our history of working with Dutch company stretches back six years and the product is proving more popular than ever before. An increased awareness has led to a high number of architects and organisations specifying the design.
