The Compact Roller Door is ideal when space is at its minimum.

It has a narrower lath that only requires 205mm of headroom.

Gliderol roller doors are ideal for all shapes and sizes and can be fitted:
> Between the opening
> Behind the opening (for maximum width and height). This gives it the freedom to be fitted in the most complex locations regardless of the shape of the garage opening. Single and double garage door sizes are catered for meaning almost all requirements can be met. This makes it highly practical for owners of 4x4 vehicles or similar cars of a large nature who otherwise find problems driving into their garage.

The Compact Roller Door opens vertically so you can park your car right up to the garage if you have a short driveway. You can also maximise space inside your garage as the door rolls up tightly and neatly above the lintel, allowing you to utilise all the roof space in your garage and also maximise drive through height for taller vehicles.


The Gliderol Compact Roller door is supplied as standard with a Gliderol Roll-A-Glide tubular motor.
> Remote control operation
> Virtually silent and exceptionally smooth
> Rolling code technology ensures that security is paramount with a unique code generated each time the handset is activated.
> Full Box

Motors can be fitted on the left or right hand side (as viewed from inside the garage looking out).

Manual Override
In the event of a power failure a manual winding handle ensures the door can be opened from inside the garage. An external manual release is available as an optional extra. This manual release is compulsory for garages where an alternative entrance is not available unless there is a battery back-up installed.

Optional Extras
External Manual Release
- required if there is no other means of access to the garage.
Handset - additional handsets are available (2 are supplied as standard).
Wireless Key Switch - Externally mounted security switch with three keys.
Wireless Key Pad - available in standard and anti-vandal providing versatility for location.
Electric photo cell - type D safety device in accordance with BS EN 12453. If the door detects an obstruction in the doors path, the door will stop, reverse momentarily and then stop again.
Battery Back-up - In case of a power failure the battery back-up will keep the door operational. It also removes the necessity for an external manual release.

All Gliderol Roll-A-Glide doors are fitted with:
> A bottom rail safety
> Anti drop device
> Internal manual release
> Alarm as standard
The door is also equipped with an auto reverse safety mechanism. In the case of an obstruction in the doors path, the door will stop, reverse momentarily and then stop again.

Finishes available:
Racing Green
Van Dyke Brown

Please Note: When ordering colour matched guides, Gliderol cannot guarantee the colour will be exact to the door colour finish.

Colour matched guides are not available for the following door colours: Ivory, Light Grey, Agate Grey, and Chartwell Green.

*It is possible that some of the bottom rail will be visible below the top of the opening when the door is in the open position.

A Note Concerning Colours:
Door guides are available in colours matching the door curtain except laminate door colours (supplied in brown). Coloured guide rails are supplied as standard, however they may not exactly match the lath colour. The manufacturing process for the lath profile results in a textured finish, whilst all other coloured items (guides, bottom laths, lock laths, optional fascias and vision panels) are supplied in a satin finish so cannot be guaranteed to match exactly.

The Compact Roller doors are ordered using the overall guide width and the guide height.

The overall height is the opening height plus the 205mm head plate.
The finished door ordering width is the opening width required plus 130mm (width of guides = 2 x 65mm).

As the Compact roller door can be fitted behind, in between or in front of your garage then the calculations can be arrived at by different methods but all we need for ordering purposes is the overall width.

If fitting between the opening the over guide width of the door should be the narrowest measurement between the opening.
