If you are in need of a new garage door for your home or business, you are probably already aware that there are a huge number of options available to you. With all these options, it can be a challenge to figure out which one best fits your needs.
One type of door that has been quickly increasing in popularity, especially throughout the UK, is the roller shutter door. These doors provide a tremendous number of benefits over some of the more traditional options.
Can Be Customised to Fit Any Door Opening
One of the main advantages of roller shutter doors is that they can be customised to fit just about any size of door opening. This provides flexibility, as there are a wide range of roller shutter doors available to home and business owners. In addition, most manufacturers can create your door in the colour of your choice.
While it does depend on the brand and quality of the roller shutter door that you use, this type of door is known to be extremely secure. With most garage doors, such as aluminium, it can be quite easy for intruders to force their way in by breaking through the bottom of the door curtain.
With shutter doors, however, it becomes much more difficult to do so. In many cases, the simple fact that you have a shutter door can be enough of a deterrent to prevent anyone from even attempting to break in.
For the many advantages that this type of door provides, you would think that it would be one of the more expensive options out there. Fortunately, this is not the case. Roller shutters provide great value, as their initial cost is lower than most other options and they are durable enough to last for several years.
When you’re installing a new garage door, visual appeal will almost always play a role. Roller shutters are known for having a unique look, and the fact that they can be created in the colour of your choice allows you to ensure that they match the surrounding structure of your home or business.
Energy bills are notorious for fluctuating quite a bit, depending on the season. What you may not realise, however, is that proper insulation throughout your property can help to significantly reduce energy costs at all times throughout the year. Shutter doors can help with this, as they are insulated to ensure that the heat stays in during the winter and out during the summer.
Ideal for Double and Triple Garages
For those home and business owners with double or triple garages, a roller shutter door provides the convenience of being able to work amongst each door opening through a multi-channel remote control system. They are much more convenient than traditional garage doors, as the traditional offerings generally require separate control systems for each.
