New Enhanced GaraRoll Roller Door Design Now Available

Wider guide rails now 110mm, not 100mm wideOur GaraRoll garage doors are one of the best engineered roller garage doors currently available on the market, and with a new enhanced door design they are now even more durable and efficient. During 2015, our product design team worked to make key changes to deliver a more water-tight door motion, a better sealed header box and a more maintenance friendly design.

The width of the guide rails which run vertically down each side of the door have been increased to 110mm and two more brush seals have been applied to each guide rail, resulting in a more water tight door motion.

New hinge connector feature on Garador roller doorWith a new hinge connector and sealing component added to the roller box, which fits at the head of the garage door opening, the new GaraRoll roller box is better sealed and easier to access for any maintenance work.

From January 2016, all GaraRoll roller doors will be manufactured with this new design. To view the full range of Garador roller garage doors, please visit the Garador website.

Garador Staff Support British Heart Foundation with ‘Wear It, Beat It’ Day!

Garador staff at Wear It Beat It BHF Charity EventLast Friday Garador staff ran their own Wear It, Beat It fundraising charity day, in support of the British Heart Foundation. The charity fundraising day was spearheaded by Garador’s very own, Kim Kerswell, who recently discovered she had a heart condition and has since had a pacemaker fitted. Kim found the British Heart Foundation to be very supportive, providing her with a booklet at the hospital and information on their online community page to help her to learn more about her condition.

The British Heart Foundation undertakes a tremendous amount of research into pacemaker technology. Kim feels that their work has really helped her, so she wanted to give something back to the charity, by raising money to contribute to their research on pacemakers.

The staff at Garador helped setup a cake sale, with lots of lovely homemade cakes including cupcakes, lemon cakes, coffee cakes and even a red velvet cake! We also did a raffle to win a fancy box of chocolates and a bottle of wine for Valentine’s Day, along with a prize for the most imaginative red outfit worn on the day going to Liam Harris and Dave ‘Bert’ Thomas! All in all, everyone had a great time and were delighted to help raise money for such a worthwhile cause with £243.70 going to the British Heart Foundation.

According to the British Heart Foundation, heart and circulatory diseases take the lives of more than 400 people in the UK each day. To find out more, please visit the British Heart Foundation’s Wear It, Beat It website.
