Roller garage doors

Are you looking for a garage door which will enable you to maximise useable space, both on your driveway and within your garage? A roller garage door could be the perfect solution. At Cambridge Garage Doors, we can supply and fit roller garage doors throughout Cambridge, and have helped hundreds of clients – both domestic and commercial – to purchase the doors that they need to secure their properties.

There are many advantages to investing in a roller door over other types of garage door. A few of these benefits include;

  • As with sectional garage doors, cars can be parked directly in front of the door, as there is no kick out during opening. This means that you can make the most of the parking space on your driveway.
  • These doors provide great protection from the elements, as they seal well against the weather.
  • Provide the full drive through width, perfect for wider vehicles.
  • Neat and individually encased with no tracks hanging from the ceiling.
  • Made from durable, lightweight aluminium – making them hardwearing yet easy to operate.
Of course, roller garage doors are not suitable for all garages, as they require 300mm (12”) of headroom behind the lintel. Our team will be happy to talk you through your options if you are considering a roller garage door, and will be able to advise you as to whether a roller shutter is suitable for your property.
