THE door industry journal winter 2020 Domestic Garage Doors Also online at: www.dijonline.co.uk Garador Launches New Garaglide Roller Garage Door The engineering and product development teams at Garador have been busy over the last 18 months, developing a new competitively priced roller door, called the GaraGlide. With its tubular motor driven design, wired optical-sensor and comparatively low price, it’s one of the best value roller garage doors currently available on the market. Plus, the new door has been designed and packaged so that it is quick to fit and easy to transport to site. The GaraGlide is electrically automated, so homeowners can open and close their door at the touch of a button. The door itself is powered by a tubular drive motor and is supplied with two remote hand transmitters as standard, with the option of either a standard (433 MHz) or bisecur (868 MHz) hand transmitter design, to control their door with, thus giving them a basic and more advanced option to choose from. It also has a smart new control panel, with an integrated LED light to illuminate the garage on those dark winter evenings. The door is also supplied with an internal crank handle for emergency release, so homeowners can still open and close the door in the event of a power cut. The door features a wired optical sensor built into the floor seal to ensure that the door curtain stops, in the event of an obstruction. The optical sensor utilises light beam technology, whereby when the beam is broken the door will stop. Neil Discombe, Managing Director at Garador says: “The GaraGlide’s electrically automated design means the door can be conveniently opened using just a hand transmitter. The door also looks great and comes in a range of colours, so we are confident that it will appeal to a broad spectrum of customers”. The door curtain is constructed from 77mm high aluminium profiles, filled with CFC free polyurethane foam providing thermal insulation and is available in 15 standard colours, 2 timber-effect finishes and the very special Anthracite Metallic (Noir Sable 2100). In addition to the plain door curtain profiles, there’s also the option to have ventilation grilles to provide further ventilation inside the garage or glazing elements to provide natural daylight inside. 36 Quick and Easy to Install The new GaraGlide roller door has a number of different features that make it very quick to install: • Pre-assembled box cover, barrel, and guide rollers. • High quality roller wheels to improve noise reduction. • Extra ‘fold’ in the hood adds rigidity and strength making installation easier. • Pre-drilled guide rails to further reduce installation time. • 75mm guide rails for single doors and 105mm for double doors, for narrow fitting conditions. • Supplied in two double-wall cardboard boxes, for ease of transportation to site.
