Roller Garage Doors

A roller garage door provides plenty of space in front of the garage allowing you to park right up to the door if space is tight. It also has the added bonus of utilising the space in your garage as the door hardly takes up any room in the ceiling area.

Insulated Roller Door – Hörmann – RollMatic

This newly designed roller door from Hörmann has been developed to specifically address the industry wide problem of scratching associated with roller doors. Only Hörmann use a belt system that’s designed to provide cushioning as the door curtain rolls up, helping to significantly reduce the risk of marking or scratching.

Using technology originally developed for the automotive market, Hörmann have named their unique solution a Durabelt. Located within the barrel, the Durabelt consists of a tape-like material which sits between the inner and outer face of the curtain and helps to reduce the risk of marking or scratching due to grit or other foreign objects.

The Hörmann RollMatic is available as either internal fit or external fit (it has a box cover as standard) options. It’s available in heights from 1600mm to 3100mm and widths from 1000mm to 6000mm. Available in Traffic White and 13 RAL colours as well as the UK favourites Chartwell Green and Noir sable (a metallic Anthracite). Hörmann RollMatic also comes in two Decopaint (painted Rosewood and Golden Oak) and Decograin (foiled wood effect with UV resistant plastic film coating in Rosewood and Golden Oak) design options, giving ample choice when matching your garage door to with your windows or home. You can also have glazing elements and ventilation grilles as optional extras. The Hörmann RollMatic also uses the Hörmann BluSecur app that allows you to open and close your door with your smartphone.

Other products in the Hörmann roller door range are the RollMatic T, and RollMatic OD – see brochure below on the differences between the variants offered.

We recommend keeping your lovely new door clean using warm soapy water! Recommended to be serviced every year.

SWS Roller Doors have a battery powered safety edge, these batteries will need to be changed on average every 14 months to 2 years. Depending on the age of the door you will either have 3.6v lithium batteries or AA batteries. There is a black battery pack on the last slat of the door and the batteries are in there. If you hear 4-5 beeps then these need changed as soon as possible. We sell these batteries here or these can be bought online.
