Are Roller Garage Doors Insulated?

roller garage doors

Of all the garage door types, it would be easy to assume that roller garage doors offer no insulation – after all, they’re made up of articulating metal strips with gaps between them to facilitate the rolling mechanism.

However, roller garage doors can offer more insulation than you might expect; it all comes down to what they’re made from and how they’re installed.

Here, we’ll look at some of the best ways to make sure your roller garage door is as insulated as possible, while still providing all the convenience of a roller mechanism.

What Are the Benefits of Insulated Garage Doors?

Although some of the benefits are obvious, like creating a more comfortable garage environment, there are plenty more advantages to insulated garage doors.

1. Energy Efficiency

Insulated garage doors can help reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, which can help lower energy bills and create a pleasant garage environment to work in.

2. Improved Durability

Insulated garage doors are often made of sturdier materials that can withstand harsh weather conditions, such as extreme temperatures and heavy winds.

3. Enhanced Soundproofing

Insulated garage doors can help reduce noise pollution, making your garage quieter and more comfortable.

4. Better Protection

Insulated garage doors can provide better protection for your garage and its contents, as they are often more resistant to break-ins and can help prevent damage from extreme weather.

5. Increased Resale Value

Insulated garage doors can add value to your home, making it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell in the future.

What Makes Garage Doors Insulated?

No matter what style of garage door you go for, there are certain features that will help with insulation.

In particular, the door’s construction material will greatly impact its insulative properties.

  • Wood is a natural insulator and can be a popular choice for traditional garage doors, although it does require regular treatment to prevent rot and weathering.
  • Adding an insulative layer to a garage door is another popular way to improve insulation. This is common with metal doors and can prove to be an effective way to boost insulation. Insulating foam can be sandwiched between metal panels to boost insulation.

Finally, ensuring the door is correctly fitted with a frame that doesn’t leak will greatly improve heat retention inside the garage. You could have the most insulated door in the world, but if there are gaps around the edges, the insulative properties become moot.

How Do We Ensure Our Roller Garage Doors are Insulated?

At Quay Facilities, we’ve spent a lot of time researching the best insulated roller garage doors, aiming to provide our customers all the convenience of roller doors with the additional insulative benefits of traditional garage doors.

Our standard roller garage doors are made from roll formed aluminium, filled with polyurethane insulating foam. This makes them twice the thickness of an uninsulated garage door, drastically improving their insulative properties.

Even our compact roller doors are filled with polyurethane foam, just slightly less of it so they can still roll up tightly and occupy just 205mm of headroom.

The final step that helps make our roller garage doors well insulated is the careful installation offered by our team. Our expert installers go above and beyond to ensure all garage doors are tightly fitted, leaving no gaps or cracks, creating an insulated seal that will stand the test of time.
