A choice of widths and heights is available, as every door is made to customer’s individual requirements, and can be fixed behind the opening or, if necessary, between.

The roller, usually fitted behind the lintel, accommodates the door when open, and is made from steel tube, inside which is the counterbalancing tempered helical spring(s). The roller is mounted on bearings on supporting steel end plates,which also house single or double reduction gears for ease of operation. Operation can be manual via continuous chain or push up with pull down cord/rod, or electrical via appropriate single or 3 phase motor with push button control and emergency cut-off with hand operation facility.
