This could save you on costs in the long-run and make installing your new manual roller shutter door quick and easy, too.

Frequently Asked Questions
About our manual roller shutter doors
Why choose a manual roller shutter garage door?
There are lots of great reasons to opt for one of these, especially if budget is firmly on your mind. You’ll get the security and appearance of our state-of-the-art automated doors, but the low cost of manual operation, giving you the best of both worlds. And if you decide to go automatic at a later date, it’s no problem – we may be able to retrofit a steel continuous curtain door with a motor.
Which is the best brand?
While it’s always hard to pick a favourite, of our brands, Hörmann is the most prestigious. It’s known throughout the UK, Europe and even the US for its performance, and the brand has a fantastic R&D team that currently reinvents the wheel when it comes to new designs and operation. Having said that, we only work with the best in the business and every one of our brands are hand-picked for the quality of their products.
What about manual roller shutter garage door prices?
Pricing up a garage door is a straightforward enough process, but we’ll need input from you – the homeowner – to really design your dream door. To get an idea of costs and what we can create for your home, why not book a home visit with ABi?
How does retrofitting work?
For continuous steel curtain doors, we can potentially retrofit motors to create automated operation. However, we’d need to take a look at your door before we could guarantee being able to carry out this kind of work. Also, while it’s a great solution for those looking to automate a manual door, we would always suggest having an electronic roller shutter garage door installed for preference.

Our manual roller garage door products
We offer two main types of manually operated roller garage door: aluminium and steel. Each has their pros and cons. For example, steel roller doors can be a great choice for the budget-conscious, yet still offer protection and durability. Comparably, aluminium is extremely strong and helps prevent water ingress, offering the highest level of protection for your valuables, but is more of an investment. Whatever you choose, you’ll have the guidance of our team of experts who will help you make the right decision for you and your needs.
