Alluguard 55Product Description
The Alluguard 55 is a Compact Roller Shutter Garage Door, which is designed to give thermal and acoustic insulating properties far greater than the average Up & Over Garage Door.
This roller shutter garage door is built of a double skin aluminium slat with a CFC Free Polyurethane Foam infill. The slat profile on the Compact Roller Shutter Garage Door is 55mm, as opposed to 77mm that you see with the traditional classic roller slat. This reduced slat size means that the curtain rolls up into 205mm when in the open position, as opposed to 300mm required by the classic slat. This makes the Alluguard 55 Compact Roller Shutter an idea solution if you’ve got limited head room in your garage.
The Alluguard 55’s corrosion resistant Aluminium slats are light but strong and come finished in a range of Solid and textured woodgrain finishes.

The convenience of a Roller Shutter Garage Door
Operating vertically and rolling away into a compact coil within the garage means that this type of garage door takes up less space inside your garage than a traditional garage door. This design feature also means that with a roller shutter you can park right up to the garage without ever having to worry about the garage door swinging out and hitting your car.
The Alluguard 55 rolls up into a 205mm coil, which is even less than it’s cousin the Alluguard 77, which rolls into a 300mm coil. Like a larger roller the door typically sits behind the brickwork, allowing all of the traditional framework of a garage door to be removed. This can increase the drive through width on a average garage by up to 6″ or 150mm.
