Frequently Asked Questions
Why a Roller Shutter Garage Door?
In the past few years roller shutter garage doors have become very popular and are well on the way to replacing traditional up and over garage doors as the “go to” or standard garage door of choice for most people. There are many reasons for their popularity that include convenience, security, space saving and versatility. Please click Here for a full explanation in our article “10 Good Reasons to buy a Roller Garage Door”.
Are Roller Garage Doors Secure?
In short, Yes as long as you have a good quality door with a strong locking mechanism and robust door lath. Please see our article “How Secure are Electric Roller Shutter Garage Doors?” where we explain in detail what you should expect from a security perspective.
Are Roller Garage Doors Safe?
If your door is installed properly (ideally by DHF trained and approved installers), is CE marked and conforms to the UK/European safety standards (primarily EN13241-1 and the relevant Machinery Directives) it is legal and complies with all the current safety standards . You can find more information directly on the DHF website Here or by downloading the DHF consumer leaflet – Safety of Your New Automated Garage Door. There is also a short video on the DHF link above or alternatively you can watch the video Here.
I Have Been Shopping Around and Noticed that Prices Vary Considerably, Why is this?
This is because the quality varies massively, indeed some doors at the bottom end of this industry we would describe as “border line fit for purpose” and in some cases doors do not even conform to UK/European Directives and Safety Standards. We produced a detailed article on this subject; titled “What to Look for When Buying an Electric Roller Shutter Garage Door”. This explains in detail the differences between high quality and “budget” doors and why you see such disparities in pricing.

Why do I Need a Survey?
All garages are different and roller garage doors are made to measure. Before we can advise on the how the door will look and how we would install it we need to see the opening to make sure the door would fit and that there are no obstacles etc. Only then can we give an accurate idea of cost.
What Happens at a Survey?
We will have a brief discussion about the door, how it would be fitted and how it would look in addition to answering any questions you may have. If needs be, we can show you examples, colours and finishes etc. and in most cases we can give you a fairly accurate cost there and then. If at that point you want time to think about it we give you our details and leave. If however you decide you want to move forward there and then we will take accurate manufacturing dimensions for a detailed quote/order. WE NEVER USE HIGH PRESSURE SELLING TECHNIQUES AND ALWAYS RESPECT THE FACT THAT WE ARE IN YOUR HOME.
What Happens if We Want to order a door?
