Functional garage door
By virtue of the exceptional purpose it serves, the garage door shall stand out in terms of both functionality and safety of operation.The quality of its daily use heavily relies on the choice of a suitable garage door.
There are many types of garage gate doors such as roller and segment types as well as hinged slab doors. The selection of the right model depends on our expectations of the product. If it the solution sought is to feature an electric drive and save space, then a roller shutter door is our gate of choice.
A roller shutter door is a comprehensive solution to be adapted in both existing and erected buildings. It is a remarkable space-saver as it operates in a vertical plane. It merits the appreciation of customers who have a limited driveway space or park their cars directly from the street. Once raised, the gate curtain does not restrict visibility, boosting the driver’s safety.
Ease of use
It is becoming a standard in single-family houses to install electric-drive gate doors. Automatically rolled door is not only convenient in use but also safe. Radio remote control allows to open and close the gate without leaving the car, which is a convenience of particular consideration in the evening, in winter or during rain. The product is also fitted with a manual drive, allowing to raise the gate in case of power failure – says Piotr Gustof, Head of Roller System Development Departmentat Aluprof. State-of-the art systems should also be integrated with an anti-drop protection. A set of photocells are to ensure user protection against being crushed upon gate closure.
Advantages of roll-up doors
Roller shutter door profiles come in two types: foam-fitted and extruded. The former are manufactured of high-quality aluminium sheets covered with a double layer of varnish in the PUR-PA system. This enhances the product’s resistance to abrasion and atmospheric factors –explains Piotr Gustoffrom Aluprof, a company that manufactures garage door systems. The door stands out also in terms of thermal and acoustic insulation due to the foam filling inside the sections – the expert adds. Whereas, the sturdy extruded aluminium profiles provide a permanent and stable protection. They are available in a broad colour range with a powder coating finish, which also contributes to their strength. Contemporary marketed doors have the advantage of the availability of a broad colour range, facilitating a match between the product and façade.
The installation, adjustment and startup of the door may only be conducted by a person with suitable qualifications and experience, appointed by the door manufacturer or the prospective user. The product should be installed so as to allow easy access to the mechanism for the purpose of adjustment, maintenance and repair, clear of the route of curtain raising or dropping. Any electric works required for the power connection of the gate shall also be performed by a duly chartered professional.
