CASE STUDY: Three In a Row!

How you can secure your property with insulated roller doors…

By Alice Dove, Director at The Garage Door Centre

This was an interesting project, as our client first contacted us in August 2020 saying that he had been told by every other garage door firm, that they “would not touch it”, which was interesting to hear!

Initial Workings

Our client has three openings in a beautiful renovated cart lodge, on sloping ground. Each opening is sloping and each one is on lower ground than the next, making each opening different from the next and not square. Here is an exaggerated drawing of their alignment:

Once we had initially estimated the job through phone calls and emails for the client, using some very good client measurements, the client confirmed that he wanted to go ahead. Our experienced surveyor headed over to the site on the 1st September 2020. This triggers a final, formal, detailed quotation. The sloping bottom slats had to be specified individually for each curtain as they were a nonstandard width and height.

Manufacture & Installation

As soon as our client had received the final quotation and digitally approved it, we went ahead and got the three doors manufactured. Each door was unique in every way, so this required extra checks and measures to ensure a fault-free project.

On the 10th November the three doors were finally installed beautifully by our installation engineers, and as you can see for yourself, they are smart, safe, secure and functional!

Roller Garage Door Features

These roller doors are Police Approved, Secured by Design and manufactured in the UK. The roll cover boxes are black, the same as the curtain in each case, and the guides each side are 75mm and black too. Each has its own LED light that comes on when the door is in operation, along with two inclusive remote control handsets that can be attached to a keyring.

In addition, there are options for external digipads, manual releases in case of power outage, smart home systems (that can be integrated wit Alexa, for example), and other additions, if required. All these doors have safety edge technology in case of cats, dogs, bikes, children, etc. and are warrantied for up to 7 years.

Costings

For one of these roller shutter doors, straight at the bottom, manufactured by SWS in any colour from 17 in the standard range, installed within our catchment area including removal, disposal and fitting, and VAT with a matching full roll cover box, 75mm guides, Police Approved Secured by Design, is likely to be £1750.
