Door Industry Journal - Spring 2021

Also online at: 44 THE door industry journal spring 2021 Domestic Garage Doors Garador Introduces Wireless Optical Sensor for Garaglide Garador’s new electrically operated roller garage door, the GaraGlide, is now available with a wireless optical sensor as an option. You can therefore now choose between a wired or wireless optical sensor for this roller door. The wireless optical sensor is built into the floor seal and utilises light beam technology, so if there is an obstruction in the way of the door curtain’s downward path, when the light beam is broken the door curtain will stop. The new wireless optical sensor means there is no spiral cable required to connect the safety edge to the separate control panel housing. Batteries are required for this new device. This new feature provides the same reliable level of protection as the wired version and recognises when there is an obstacle in the door’s path. The GaraGlide is powered by a tubular drive motor and is supplied with two remote hand transmitters as standard, with either a standard (433 MHz) or bisecur (868 MHz) hand transmitter design. It has been designed so that it is quick to fit and easy to transport to site; the entire garage door fits neatly into just two double-wall cardboard boxes. Choose from 16 colours and 2 timber-effect finishes. Find out more about Garador’s new GaraGlide roller door by visiting Aluroll’s Fitter-Friendly Focus Continues with Investment into Pre-Drilled Guide Channels With their pre-programmed ‘plug-and-play’ control panel and handsets, Secureroll roller garage doors have long been regarded as the most fitter-friendly design on the market and a new facility is about to make them even easier to install. Aluroll is commissioning a bespoke multi-drill machine that will give installers the option to have all Classic and Compact guide channels pre-drilled during manufacture, saving valuable time on site. Aluroll customers will be kept informed of when the pre-drilled guide option is available, expected to be from May 1st, 2021. All installers need to do is inform the sales office of their planned fit type when placing an order, as this enables the holes to be positioned correctly for face or reveal fit installations. As always, Aluroll will remain flexible regarding customer requirements and anyone wishing to drill their own guides can opt to do so. Speak to the sales office on 01691 679257 more information on becoming part of Aluroll’s growing network of trade installers.
