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.
Following in the footsteps of Chris “KO” Roberts, our Operations Manager with a mean right hook, we are proud to introduce Matt “The Barbarian” Barber.
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.
Our West African base, Aluroll Nigeria, has manufactured shutters for the region’s most prestigious projects. Local access control experts Base Concepts & Designs recently completed work on two major developments in capital city Lagos; warehouses on a port complex and a new 80,000m2 leisure development called FairAcres. They chose Aluroll Nigeria’s shutters for both.
Aluroll is launching a new feature on all roller garage doors. The SELVE burglar-proof fixation will replace the current anti-lift locking straps. The devices prevent intruders from gaining access by lifting the curtain from below.
The Aluroll factory has recruited apprentices to help keep up with increasing demand. New apprentices in fabrication and stock management have started work this month.
There has been plenty of interesting news around this month. We’ve mentioned burglary rates are falling because of better security, but the cost of UK crime has soared to a record-breaking £613 million in the latest figures. The link between better security and reducing theft losses is an obvious one, but 59% of SMEs in the UK still rely on locks and lights alone to protect their business.

White roller garage doors are by far our most popular, so we’ve expanded our natural range with two new colours. We have Sand, a cream white (RAL 9001), and Light Ivory, a yellow-hued off-white (RAL 1015).
Current crime statistics have shown burglary rates are continuing to drop, and Government officials have said “there is little consensus” on the fact that this is due to improvements in building and vehicle security.
We’re wishing all of our trade installers merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Thanks for your continued support throughout 2015, and here’s to a successful 2016 too...
Aluroll’s Chris Roberts had his first boxing match on Sunday, managing to score a draw against a tough opponent. Our very own Rocky took part in three two minute rounds and, having lost one, won one and drawn one, the match was officially declared a draw.
We’ve been really busy this month, ensuring Aluroll installers have everything they need before the Christmas break. Perhaps homeowners are giving practical gifts of garage doors? We’re not sure. But here’s something you definitely don’t want to see on your other half’s list - one of Britain’s most expensive garages has sold this month.
