Benefits of a Roller Garage Door

Roller garage doors offer several key benefits, making them a popular choice for many homeowners. Here are some of the advantages:

  1. Space-saving Design: Roller garage doors are known for their compact and space-saving design. As they roll up vertically into a neat coil above the opening, they don’t require additional space in your garage like swinging or sectional doors.
  2. Easy Operation: These doors are typically equipped with a motorized system, allowing for convenient and easy operation. Many roller doors come with remote control functionality, enabling you to open and close the door with the touch of a button.
  3. Security: Roller garage doors are considered secure due to their sturdy construction and lack of easily accessible leverage points for potential burglars. Some models also feature reinforced locking mechanisms, enhancing the overall security of your garage.
  4. Durability: Made from materials such as steel or aluminium, roller garage doors are durable and able to withstand harsh weather conditions. They are resistant to rust, corrosion, and other environmental factors, ensuring a longer lifespan.
  5. Insulation: Some roller doors come with insulation options, helping to regulate the temperature within the garage. This can be particularly beneficial if your garage is used as a workspace or if it’s connected to your home.
  6. Customisation: Roller garage doors are available in various designs, colours, and finishes, allowing you to choose a style that complements the aesthetics of your home. This customisation helps enhance the overall curb appeal.
  7. Low Maintenance: Roller doors generally require minimal maintenance. Regular cleaning and lubrication of moving parts are usually sufficient to keep them in good working condition. The lack of complex mechanisms and components reduces the likelihood of frequent repairs.
  8. Smooth and Quiet Operation: Roller doors operate smoothly and quietly, making them a discreet option for homes. This is especially important if the garage is located close to living spaces, as it minimizes noise disturbances.
  9. Weather Resistance: Roller garage doors provide a good seal against the elements when closed, offering protection from rain, snow, and wind. This helps keep the interior of your garage and any stored items safe from adverse weather conditions.
  10. Increased Property Value: The addition of a roller garage door can enhance the overall value and curb appeal of your property. Potential buyers often find modern and well-maintained garage doors to be an attractive feature.

It’s important to note that specific features and benefits can vary depending on the brand, model, and materials used in the construction of the roller garage door.

Aluroll Installers Benefit from the Best Control Options in the Industry

We’ve always been at the forefront of automation technology, offering both Teleco and Somfy control panels on our Secureroll roller garage doors.

All remote control systems are plug and play and fully commissioned and tested in-house prior to despatch to save time on site.


This time last year we introduced our new Teleco control panel. Its exclusive design is still the only Teleco panel in the market with an integrated alarm as standard.

Feedback from our installers over the past year has been overwhelmingly positive. They are benefitting from new selling points, including the 98Db vibration alarm which sounds if excessive force is applied to the door.

The old panel’s light bulb was upgraded to a powerful LED strip, and setting motor limits and safety edge exclusions were made easier.

Mobile phone activation can also be enabled with the simple addition of a plug-in circuit board with a SIM card. This enables users to communicate with their door via text message so they can receive a notification when the alarm is triggered or remotely provide temporary access for deliveries.

The new Teleco panel still comes with the choice of a wired or wireless safety edge at no extra cost, as well as other great features like holiday mode and bidirectional communication with compatible wireless wall switches.


Somfy are one of the world’s most recognisable brands in motors and controls, and their Rollixo panel is an established industry favourite.

It can be integrated into the TaHoma smart home system for touch control of the roller garage door via smartphone or tablet. Somfy’s wide product range extends to controls for blinds, curtains, lights and heating, and these can all be controlled using the same app.

The Somfy panel shares many features with the Teleco one, with a built-in alarm, courtesy light and holiday mode option. Both come with two handsets as standard.

Aluroll customers have the choice of the latest and most innovative control options in the marketplace. Whether you want to try the latest Teleco design or learn more about the Somfy Rollixo system, please contact the office for showroom or on-site training as required.
