Take less
any other

Insulated roller garage doors take less space than any other garage door and have “no outswing”.
You can park your vehicle right up to the door leaving more available space on your drive way.


Ideal for extra storage space and excellent for short driveways.

To Suit Most Garage Designs.
Our doors can be installed to most designs of garage. One of the most popular designs is an arched headed lintel.
If you have two single sized garage doors with a centre pillar, and you would like to change this to one double sized door, the centre pillar can be removed, and one double sized insulated roller door will create the solution.

Visually they look stunning with gentle curves and subtle lines. You can choose the colour that best suits your home and your choice. With no restrictions you can choose a colour that suits your preference.

Our Range

At Birkdale we have invested in the very latest technology and manufacturing techniques.
This has enabled us to manufacture Insulated Roller Doors to an exacting high standard and introduce ranges of colours and finishes that are unique in the garage door market.

“Laminated Finish” what does this mean?

Laminated or “Foiled” are two descriptions of the same process. At Birkdale, we have our own in-house technology which enables us to “laminate” our Polyester smooth aluminium materials. This creates a much more resilient surface that is far more able to survive against climatic changes and abrasion, and importantly, retain the superb appearance you originally enjoyed with your door. With the built in solar shield technology the Laminate increases the insulation value up to 60%.

Laminate material is used across many industries including; automotive, house building, furniture manufacturing and many more.

Using the very highest quality of Laminate material, Birkdale can provide a surface of our garage doors that carry a 15-year warranty against colour fading. We can provide literally 1000s of colour choices in several appearances.

Continuing our range of unique colours and finishes, you can choose from our “Colour Matched Laminated Finish Range”.
This range offers you any choice of colour you may wish for. Any colour that is not included in the “Polyester Smooth Finish” “Trend Laminated Finish” or “Trend Plus Laminated Finish” can be supplied from this range.

For us to manufacture this special range of colours, we go through several stages of our process including laminating each lath individually to then put each lath through our “PLASCOAT” colour treatment process. “PLASCOAT” is widely used in the UPVC and Aluminium front entrance door market and has an extraordinary tough and resilient finish.

We hope we have provided enough information for you to choose a Birkdale Insulated Roller Door.

Polyester Smooth Finish


This is our entry level Polyester Finish

Trend Laminated Finish

A range of the most popular colours in our laminated finish; Anthracite Grey (smooth and woodgrain), Balmoral, Chartwell Green, Chocolate Brown, Cream White, Crystal White Ash, Golden Oak, Irish Oak, Jet Black (woodgrain), Mahogany, Moss Green, Mountain Oak, Slate Grey and Steel Blue. These are offered at a subsidised rate because of their popularity.

Trend Plus Laminated Finish

Colour Matched Laminated Finish

We can manufacture to colour match your specific colour and to any colour that is not RAL recognised.

Colour Matched Laminate Finish “PLASCOAT” is a unique range of colours and technology only from Birkdale. This range offers all colours from all colour ranges. In order to manufacture this range we use PLASCOAT colour treatment on top of our a laminated lath. This creates a colour finish which is far better than any other painted coloured lath.




Hard Wearing Laminate Coating Option

Birkdale have a premium coating system often used on window profiles so an ideal match and they come with a 15 year warranty. This gives us 1000’s of colours all available from stock. Colour matching box, guides and fascia is also available. This coating opens up the possibility of matching any architecture and is much harder wearing than paint finished profiles traditionally supplied. In brief, we have more choice with better warranties all from stock for quicker delivery.


High Speed Tube Motor

A high speed motor provides smoother and faster operation. Supplied with an internal manual release and a 7 year warranty. These are supplied exclusively to Birkdale by Jolly Motors.

Door Monitor System

Unlike a standard safety edge this motion detection device offers full protection, beneath and against the door. Backed by a 5 year warranty as standard.

3 Function Spring System

This reduces the work load on the motor, gives a smoother door operation, and provides a built in anti drop device.

Remotely Operated

Two Channel handsets are supplied as standard, our roller doors are supplied with two remotes for easy, wireless operation. Four channel handsets can be supplied to operate up to four doors using one handset.

Heavy Duty Barrel and Security Locking

The 125mm round aluminum barrel is light weight but extremely strong with its honeycomb structure eliminates any deflection in the barrel even in doors at 5500mm wide. The increase in the diameter of the barrel also significantly increases the speed and smoothness of the door operation and with the additional retainer profile provides much superior security rating compared against traditional spring locks.

Insulated Curtain

Our Roller Door is thermally insulated to help with garage warmth. The 20mm thick insulated curtain is ideal for integral garages or garages with bedrooms above.

Internal Manual Override

In the event of a power cut, our internal manual override allows the door to be wound up and down via crank handle and eyelet. This can be upgraded to a permanently fixed knuckle system which is ideal for tight spaces. Our spring assisted system makes this easier to use.

Extruded Top and Bottom Rail

The aluminium extruded top and bottom rails are manufactured with a double wall profile. Add this to the heavy duty guide to give the door a rigid, stronger perimeter.

Touch Screen Control Box

Look at our stylish sleek designed control box and door monitor system. Features include a touch screen with LED light, battery status monitor, safety edge status and other indicators. Additional optional extras of alarm, touch screen keypad, smart phone operation and a wireless door entry system for your house door are available.


Reinforced Endplates

The end plates are made from die-cast aluminium which can be upgraded to be fitted with steel reinforcement brackets as an optional extra. These provide added security, a more secure fixing and reduce installation time.

Full Box

An aluminium box made up from a 90º and a 45º profile to create a fascia when headroom is limited and a neat finish inside the garage. A full box is required for external fitting. Full Box Fascia Strengtheners are optional for greater rigidity.

Through Wall Drive

For all garages with no other entrance a Through-Wall-Drive is to be fitted as an external manual release, in the event of power failure. Secured with anti theft screws. An internal gearbox ensures easy operation.

Hood Lock

A lockable cover for externally fitted roller doors to secure the manual release device.

Four Channel Handset

Two and four channel handsets can be supplied to operate up to four doors using one handset (two channel handset is supplied as standard).



Add the Keypad for access to your garage without the need to carry hand transmitters.


Key-less Barrel Lock

Add the feature of key-less entry to your house or garage personnel door compatible with your remote or keypad.


For added security an Alarm can be fitted to sound when the door is being tampered with forcefully or manually lifted. The alarm will only work in conjunction with the Door Monitoring System (DMS).

Battery Backup

Add the Battery Backup and never worry about power failure again. Just carry on operating your door as normal waiting for power to return.

Benefits of laminated finish

There are many more advantages over standard paint finished roller doors…

Complimentary Colours

The same finish is often applied to doors, windows and conservatories. Therefore, our laminated finish really will compliment the appearance of your property. There are many more advantages over standard paint finished roller doors.

Colourfast and Harder Wearing

The multi-layer finish absorbs UV radiation by more than 95% ensuring the colours and wood grains are protected from fading and adverse weather effects. The transparent outer layer protects the colour and is designed to withstand European climate variations giving a long-term stable finish backed by a 15 YEAR WARRANTY.

Simply put, the visual appearance will be maintained and last longer than inferior paint finished roller doors.

Superior Thermal Insulation

The external foil coating creates a thermal break. Coupled with solar shield technology the profiles are kept much cooler – even with darker colours. Paint finish doors can be problematic when expansion occurs through heat. Our laminated colours greatly reduce such problems.
