We can supply vertically and horizontally opening transparent doors with flexible curtain, also in combination with sectional doors and rolling shutters.  
  Q - What are the advantages of Roller Shutters and Grilles?   A - They have an ingeniously simple construction with just a few components, and can be made in aluminium, steel and stainless steel They require hardly any space above the opening and form a compact coil behind the lintel so no valuable hall space is lost at the sides or ceiling.  
  Q - Is it possible to have sliding fire doors?   A - Yes, we can provide reliable sliding door solutions in single and double-leaf versions that comply with requirements for operation and risk - for all areas. The fire protection designs are tested in accordance with DIN 4102  
  Q - What is the difference between a roller door and a roller shutter?   A - Roller doors are typically light weight doors with a single piece curtain used in low use applications such as residential garages. Roller Shutters are heavier duty doors comprising interlocking steel slats and are generally designed for higher use or industrial applications such as multi-tenant car parks, and industrial properties or when security is a concern.  
  Q - My existing industrial door is exposed to windy conditions - how can I stop it blowing in?   A - We can often solve this problem by fitting a sliding wind brace. This gives extra rigidity when you need it most by effectively halving the width of the door.  
  Q - I have a large storage area but with low headroom - what sort of door should I be looking for?   A - Industrial folding doors are the best solution for halls with low headroom, as well as anywhere where hall statics do not permit ceiling loading. The side room needed is extremely small and doors can be insulated for heat retention or acoustic properties.  
  Q - What are the main advantages of Sectional Doors?   A - Sectional doors open vertically and thus create more space in front of and behind the door. The door sections are parked flat underneath the ceiling, vertically above the opening or in line with the roof.
