Located in Kensington, central London the owner of this home was carrying out large scale refurbishments to a mews style property and as such were looking to install a new garage door to protect their car without compromising on the aesthetic appeal of the building.
After an initial conversation with their client it became apparent that they had several key requirements. These included:
Thermal performance benefits (as the house was integral to the garage).
Provide a high level of security to protect a sports car.
Automatic operation so they can operate the door without getting out of their vehicle.
The ability for the door to be fitted between the opening, to accommodate the original fan light windows which were in situ above the existing opening.
A high level of strength, durability and reliability.
Having listened to their client requirements, SWS UK distributor Roller Doors Ltd were able to offer numerous options however after a clear explanation of the benefits and drawbacks of each design a decision was taken that a roller door was probably going to be the best all round solution.
After careful consideration the customer agreed the best choice was the SeceuroGlide Excel roller garage door, with the main deciding factors being cited as the insurance approved security rating, the remote-control operation, the between the reveal installation and the benefit of foam filled lath to provide thermal insulation.
On completion of this project SWS distributor Roller Doors Ltd provided a full demonstration of the door in action and received the following comments from the client.
“I am really pleased with the new garage door. It fits the bill perfectly and now it is installed I am glad this design was chosen. I think it rather suits the existing frame and windows but more importantly has also breathed a new lease of life to the front elevation of the house. The insurance approved security rating has also set my mind at ease that my car will be kept safe inside the garage overnight or whenever I am out of the country on business. Thank you for all your help with this project.”
