AlluGuard Roller Doors
Automatic Roller Doors Wakefield
Why we choose Alluguard and the Alluguard 77
There are many alternative Electric Roller Doors available at very attractive price tags. You may be very tempted by the price tag but it really is a case of "Buyer Beware." Many of these cheaper Roller Doors are not CE Compliant and neither do they comply with the Machinery Directive or the Door and Hardware Federation Legislation. These Roller Doors will invariably be supplied and fitted at prices of under a £1000 including VAT. We can understand the temptation. All Roller Doors look the same right? Unfortunately, they are not. Very rarely is this because it is a good door at a bargain price but more overly because it is constructed using cheaper more unreliable components which have a shorter lifespan. More importantly, many of these Roller Doors will not include a safety system but rather a Hold to Run Operation using a key fob. The image below is of a poor quality Roller Door we had to replace and only 18 months old and not repairable. This is what you don't want to happen to your new Roller Door.
When we quote our customers for an Automatic Roller Door - it will nearly always be an Alluguard 77. If we cannot fit you an ALLUGUARD 77 due to lack of space, we will never fit an Externally Mounted Roller door to a residential property as we consider them to be unsightly. Externally mounted Roller Doors do have their place in the market, but we believe this should only be in an commercial environment with very few exceptions. There is usually an alternative door available if we cannot fit a Roller Door internally. Only in extenuating circumstances where no other door will fit would we fit an Externally Mounted Roller Door. In this case, it would always be an Alluguard 55mm Compact. We will also never fit a Manual Roller Door as these are difficult to use and again, there are better alternatives to Manual Roller Doors.

ALLUGUARD 77 - Powered by Sommer Automation
All our Alluguard Roller Door installations are powered by SOMMER, German made - Safe, Secure, Reliable.
All our Alluguard Roller Door installations are fitted with the SOMMER RDC (Roller Door Control Unit) and we will always fit a Hard Wired Optical Safety Edge as opposed to the Wireless Systems which other installers may favour. Wakefield Garage Doors do not install the wireless systems because over a period of a couple of years, batteries can go flat unexpectedly resulting in the door not closing and premature failure causing disruption to the customer. The hard Wired Optical Safety Edge will never lose connection with the main control unit - unless in the case of a power failure making it ultra reliable for the customer and maintenance free.
