Insulated Roller Garage Doors

Roller garage doors have become increasingly popular over the last decade because they are easy to use, secure, neat, convenient and they allow you to maximise space by rolling away neatly into the barrel cover. The fact that they are easy to control using remote controlled electric operation is also an attraction. 

Our team at Eastern Garage Doors have extensive market knowledge as well as experience recommending, fitting, and maintaining garage doors since 1975. We collaborate with you to find the right solution for your space, based on a balance between cost, safety, unique features, design, durability, and user friendliness.

Fully compliant and CE marked, insulated roller garage doors of the high quality we install are quiet when in motion. They are also designed to make the best use of space inside and outside your garage, giving you ample room to park within millimetres of the door, on either side.

Extra equipment such as floor profiles, fascia panels, and radio wall switches is available for tailor-made solutions (some optionally and dependent on manufacturer) along with a wide choice of colours.

Key Features:

  • CFC-free polyurethane foam filled profiles help to retain heat.
  • Bottom rubber weather seal further enhances thermal performance.
  • Concealed motor drives.
  • Fast and smooth door travel.
  • Detection sensors to stop the door hitting an obstruction.
  • Keeps the ceiling area of your garage free for storage.
  • Certified security.

Colour and Surface Finishes.

Manufacturers commonly use the RAL system. With plentiful shades, tones, and decors to choose from there is certain to be a perfect or close match with your requirements.

Alongside the base colours, special finishes can include wood grain and decorative paint effects.

Foam filled slats with wood grain effect surface

In addition, depending on the manufacturer, you can have different fitting variants, for the door curtain, side guides, fascia panel and shaft cover. The surface finish on these can be mixed and matched for a customised, harmonious effect.

Bear in mind that if you are looking to harmonise your roller garage door with existing windows and doors there can sometimes be tonal inconsistencies between wood paint, metal-based colours or UPVC coatings depending on the different manufacturing techniques used.

Built-in safety

We supply and fit roller doors with integral safety features. For example, if an unexpected obstacle gets in the way during closing, an optical sensor reliably stops the door. Moreover, multiple spring assemblies with protective covers function as a counterbalance to optimise tension as the door moves, whilst a catch device protects the door from crashing in the rare event of a cable breaking. Additionally, the curtain guides can include wind locks to keep the door secure under high loads as well as offering increased burglar protection.

Security Features

Depending on the manufacturer’s model (some have patented security features), protection against unauthorised entry is provided in several ways: Primarily, roller shutter garage doors are fully automated so there is no visible handle or lock to pick. However, further enhancements can offer additional protection against unwanted forced opening.

  • Aluminium guide rails which firmly encase the slat edges
  • Anti-lift locking straps which prevent levering
  • Built-in alarm systems
  • Superior locking assemblies with steel reinforcing
  • Interference-free encrypted automation so no one can copy your radio signal

Intelligent Technology.

We supply and fit operators that offer convenience, functionality, and smart technology. They offer helpful ways to open your door using a hand transmitter, wall mounted radio switch, your smartphone or networked to a home system. The main features include:

  • Fast, smooth opening with speeds up to 20 cm/s
  • Easy-to-use programming
  • LED lighting
  • Low power consumption in standby
  • Electronic end-of-travel position cut-out
  • Secure radio systems

Roller Doors – Precision Engineered

There are lots of options on the market, but we are discerning in our selection process and have done the market research for you because we think it is important to scrutinise the way doors are constructed. We only supply the very best models, made using high specification components, making them extremely durable. Some are designed to last up to 30 years, some are closer to 15. Some have additional features such as spring assist (which makes motorised doors easier to manually override) and additional safety and security details as standard, others provide a more basic function. Either way quality is a defining factor in the choice of products we supply. 

In particular, we recommend:

  • Hormann Rollmatic: this is a German-designed option offering precision engineering
  • Hormann ceiling doors: these are especially suited to multi-purpose rooms
  • Vortex roller doors: these are ideal for more compact spaces
  • Vertic-AL: these roller door systems are well engineered, strong, and secure with unique safety features as standard

Furthermore, we don’t just help you select the right roller garage door. We will install them at your property and provide long-term maintenance including repairs, servicing and roller door renovations.

The contrast in quality and value between different manufacturers can be stark. These need-to-know facts will explain.

Useful Guides

Basic vs. Premium



See our trusted price guide



How do roller garage doors work?

They work in a similar way to a window shutter, rolling up neatly in a box when they’re not in use. They slide vertically within guide rails fixed to the wall each side and rolling around a central axle. They are available in manually operated or motorised versions for ease of use, with more sophisticated versions available, designed to reduce noise, wear and surface scuffing.

What are they made of?

Typically, premium roller garage doors are made of double skin insulated aluminium lathes (also known as slats). Budget options tend to be made from steel.



What size are roller garage doors?

They come in common sizes but can also be made to measure, depending on the brand. The size of the box that it rolls into is typically 300mm deep, however smaller box options are available when using a smaller lath size or an interlocking Vortex single skin roller shutter door. We will discuss these space considerations with you to help you decide which option is best for you.

What are the benefits of roller garage doors?

Roller garage doors are popular because they are neat, tidy and convenient, however, they are not fully sealed because of the nature of the roller mechanism. For most garages this is not a problem, but it’s worth being aware of.

Can I have windows in a roller door?

Yes, glazing elements can be added in sections and arranged across the entire profile of the slat to provide a good level of daylight.

Do roller doors require maintenance?

Not all doors are built to last, but as you would expect, any mechanism needs to be looked after to work at its best. Certain door and operating gear components will need to be lubricated at regular intervals and you should arrange for this to be done as required. Periodically clean the door panel using warm water and a soft cloth or sponge and allow to dry naturally. Never use detergent, abrasive, caustic, or solvent based cleaners as these may damage the door surface. Check and clean out the guide rails, too, removing any accumulated leaves and debris (Though thick brush seals on quality doors can reduce the need for this). In the interest of safety, we always recommend having the system inspected and maintained by a qualified person in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification. Roller doors should be serviced annually to ensure that the components are operating correctly and to ensure optimum running.
