Why are roller doors so popular


Roller garage doors are one of the most popular types of garage doors for homeowners in the UK. There are many reasons as to why so many people are choosing the roller door for their home. Despite there being so many types of garage doors available, such as sectional garage doors, up and over doors and side hinged doors, the roller door so often comes out on top.

One reason that the roller door is one of the most popular styles is due to its simplicity. This style of garage door is universally perfect for every type of homeowner because of its accessibility and ease of use. Whilst other types of garage doors require heavy lifting, like the up and over, or to be manually opened like the side-hinged, the roller door can be opened without lifting a finger. The roller door therefore does not require any heavy lifting and can be simply opened with the click of a button, which makes it perfect for elderly or disabled homeowners.

Another reason why the roller door is popular and common in the UK is due to the increased storage space it provides the garage. The roller door uniquely opens upwards and then stores into a barrel-like shape at the inner ceiling of the garage. As a result, no space is lost either in the garage or on the driveway if the garage is open. This then maximises the storage capacity of the garage and allows the homeowners to make the most of every square inch available.
