At Up & Over Doors we offer two main types of roller doors: aluminium roller shutter garage doors with built-in operation and single-skin steel rollers which are typically manual but can be automated. Both offer the practicality of needing minimal space in the garage, vertical opening, are both available in a wide range of colours at one low price and both have excellent weatherproofing.
Insulated Roller Doors:
Increasingly the most popular door in the marketplace, insulated roller doors are constructed from two layers of aluminium with a foam core and are automated as standard with remote control. They offer great security and from our preferred supplier, AlluGuard, they come in the police-preferred ‘Secure by Design’ specification and with an alarm as standard. With two profiles of door –the 77mm and the 55mm – there is a door to suit virtually all garages with headroom requirements of 300mm and 205mm respectively.
Single-Skin Roller Doors:
Whilst they do not have the insulation of the aluminium doors, these doors still offer great built-in weatherproofing, have an extremely robust outer skin of
Plastisol which is available in a wide range of colours at no additional cost
and can be motorised if desired. They offer a good budget alternative to an up and over door, are easy to use manually thanks to their in-built spring
mechanism and, in their Mini format, only need 330mm headroom.
• Light and easy to use in manual or even easier with automatic remote control

Roller Doors require minimal space within the garage and vertical opening can be especially helpful with short drives
All roller doors have enhanced weatherproofing at the sides and bottom edge, with the most popular type being insulated too
For automated doors, an integrated safety edge and safety brake mean that there is no risk of damage to people or property
Unlike most garage doors, roller doors include a range of colours and even some timber effects as standard
Our most popular roller doors, the insulated variety, are automatic as standard but all roller doors are suitable for motorisation
Our most popular roller door is ‘Secure by Design’ as standard and has a built in alarm to withstand and discourage any unwanted attention
Insulated roller doors are constructed
from individual interlocking slats made from aluminium. When the door opens it rolls around itself and has a special enclosed housing to protect it which also contains the motor. The safety of you and your family is guaranteed by a safety edge and safety brake.
Single-skin rollers are made from a continuous sheet of corrugated powder-coated steel with a Plastisol finish to the external face for durability. They operate in much the same way as their insulated cousin, rolling up vertically around themselves when operated, but without the benefit of the housing so they remain exposed.
