How secure are roller garage doors?

At The Rolling Door Experts we often get asked how secure are roller garage doors? Simply put they are one of the best ways to protect your property. At The Rolling Door Experts we only use the best materials, this includes the door profiles which are crafted from high-quality double layered insulated aluminium slats.

Most thieves in the UK act on opportunism and will always look for any areas of weakness to exploit.

The Rolling Door Experts doors have no visible locks or handle meaning a potential thief sees no obvious entry points.

In the past roller doors have been susceptible to forced attacks from below. However, all of the electric shutters we fit today feature a patented anti-lift locking system.

The simple yet highly effective anti-lift protection will stop the door being forcibly opened from below.

The guide channel of a roller door is another common area targeted by thieves and all of our roller doors feature extruded guide channels the extra material makes the guide channel less prone to attack.

A potential thief is unable to use tools to attack the shutter curtain and force entry in this area of the door.

Traditional up and over door are particularly susceptible to break in as they are usually flimsy material and only secure by the pivot point in the middle, meaning they are easy to leverage from below. 

In summary, rolling garage doors are much more secure than a traditional up and over door and by far one of the most secure ways to keep your property safe.
