The Gliderol 'A' Series Steel Roller Doors are ideal for openings up to 3400mm wide. They are easy to install and available as manual or remote control electric operation.
These are 3 standard promotional offer sizes at very special prices ideal for single standard garage openings. The sizes given are the ordering sizes with the 25mm (1") added either side for the curtain overlap and guide. You can install a larger width door into a smaller opening as long as you have the side room so your opening does NOT need to be exactly the same as the sizes shown.

Sizes offered in this promotion:

7'2" x 7'0" is for an opening 7'0" x 7'0"
7'8" x 7'0" is for an opening 7'6" x 7'0"
8'2" x 7'0" is for an opening 8'0" x 7'0"

See our Guide to Measuring for a Gliderol Roller Door >

The order size is calculated from the opening width of the brickwork plus an amount each side for guide and curtain overlap. The height is the height of the guides and the roll is an extra height above this varying dependant on the guide height.

Key Features:

Space saving - Rolls up vertically and does not swing out in front of the garage. You can park right up to the door and have more storage space in the roof of the garage.
Easy to operate - Easy to open and close with minimum noise and friction giving reliable performance at all times.
Security - Unique profile and aluminium bottom rail reinforce Gliderol roller doors against intruder penetration.
Locking - The double-sided locking system is operated from the central handle and locks from both the inside and outside of the door (manual doors only), unless locking is requested for automated doors.
Safety - The door reverses automatically should the downward movement of the door be restricted.
Quiet Operation - Noise is reduced as the motor is housed entirely within the roll of the door giving a quiet and smooth performance.
Minimal maintenance - No oiling or greasing, just an occasional clean of the guides with white spirit and the door surface with warm soapy water.
Weatherseal - Durable weatherseal on the underside of the door prevents leaves and other undesirable materials entering your garage from outside.
Installation - Requires no frame so enables the maximum possible opening width for the wider vehicle. Door sits behind the brickwork so can be fitted in arched and unusual garage door openings.

Mechanical parts are guaranteed for 6 years and the door finish itself for 10 years!

All Gliderol doors and operators are CE approved and marked.


Low security domestic garage door applications.


These steel roller doors come with a bottom weatherseal as standard to prevent leaves and other materials entering your garage.

Glidermatic GRD Operator: -
The Glidermatic GRD Remote Control Operator is very easy to use and opens the door smoothly and quietly. The operator allows you to open and close the roller door by the means of a compact hand transmitter or a wall mounted control box in the garage.
Glidermatic GRD (Heavy Duty Motor)  - for all sizes, except (up to): 3400mm x 3055mm.
Glidermatic GRD (Dual Motor) - for sizes (up to): 3400mm x 3055mm only.
The roller door will reverse automatically if the downward movement of the door is restricted.
Additional transmitters:
The remote control transmitters are an optional extra.
Up to 10 transmitters can be used with each Glidermatic motor.
You do not have to worry about the risk of another handset using the same code as the remote handset uses a different code from one of two billion after every operation.
You can buy a Handset Cradle or a Hand Transmitter Sun Visor Clip which can either be fixed to the wall in your home or clipped to your car sun visor.
External Manual Release:
This is required if you have no other entry into your garage.
The External Manual Release allows access into your garage in case of a power failure. It works as a simple key switch which connects via a cable to a pin on the side of the motor, upon pulling it will disengage the motor to allow manual operation of the door. This is an optional extra.
