  • Have heroal roller doors been certified?

    TÜV-certified burglary resistance

    The heroal RD 75 internally mounted roller shutter with anti-lift device has TÜV-tested burglary resistance: The test procedure simulates the average burglary behaviour that the garage door must withstand. Typical burglary tools such as locksmith hammers, screwdrivers and locksmith pliers are used in this procedure.

    Hail resistance

    heroal roller shutters and roller garage doors achieve hail resistance (HW) of up to class 7 the hail resistance test conducted by the Austrian Institute for Fire Protection, Safety and Security Research (IBS). In a hail simulation, standardised ice balls are pneumatically accelerated and "shot" at the test objects.

  • What slats are available for heroal roller doors?

    You can choose from a variety of roller garage door profiles depending on the roller garage door system you choose. Different options are available for the standard profile, see-through profile, grille profile and ventilation profile. In addition, roller door slats can be roll-formed or extruded. Find out more about the difference between roll-formed and extruded roller door slats and which dimensions can be achieved with which slats in terms of width and height.

  • What colours are available for heroal roller doors?

    There are no limits to creativity in the design of roller garage door surfaces. In addition to standard and special colours, up to 200 colours from the RAL colour palette are available on request. Based on the roller shutter's requirements, the coating technology can be double-layer thick lacquer, decorative foil coating or hwr powder coating. The high-quality finishing processes for the surface of the roller garage door slats and all components are subject to regular testing by independent testing institutes. Find out how the processes differ and learn about the advantages of the various colours and designs.

    Coating technologies for roll-formed profiles

    heroal 2-layer thick coating

    This coating technology is applied before the aluminium components are roll-formed and it is used for the majority of roller garage door slats. Surfaces coated with this technology are colour-intensive, easy to clean, durable and very UV-resistant. Even years down the line, the colour on your roller garage doors will continue to shine like it did on the first day.

    Decorative film

    In addition to the variety of colours available, the roll-formed bars of the heroal RD 75 roller garage door and the OD 75 overhead door can also be covered in decorative film. In addition to the standard colours, you can also choose a wood or concrete look. The decorative film is applied on the outside of the roller shutter and can be applied on the inside as well if desired. It is not possible to foil-coat shutter boxes, guide rails, end slats or see-through, grille and ventilation profiles.

    Coating technologies for extruded profiles

    heroal hwr powder coating

    This coating technology was developed for extruded profiles and is optimally matched with the double-layer thick lacquer coating for roll-formed products. This ensures a uniform appearance for windows, roller shutters and roller garage doors. heroal hwr powder coating meets the highest standards of quality and sustainability. It is exceptionally robust, highly weather-resistant and easy to clean.

    heroal SD

    The coating technology heroal Surface Design (SD) offers additional design possibilities. heroal SD offers wood, concrete and rust looks. In addition to the variety of design possibilities, this type of coating is also particularly resistant. A pre-treatment with heroal hwr powder coating makes heroal SD coating a higher quality than decorative film.

    Roller garage door colours

    There is no limits on colour design with heroal roller shutter systems. In addition to standard and special colours, colours from the RAL colour palette are available on request. Roller garage door slats can also be foil-coated in a variety of designs. Take a look at a small selection of the wide range of colours available for heroal roller garage door systems.

  • What makes heroal roller doors so convenient?

    You can equip your roller door, overhead door or roller grille with numerous accessories that provide for more security and ease of use and hence enhance your quality of live. Enjoy the capability of heroal garage doors to interact with smart home systems, and the burglary resistance and accident prevention they offer. In addition, heroal offers innovative roller door technologies, enhancing the smooth running of the door and preventing the curtain from damage. They provide for more durability and a longer lifecycle of your roller door system.

    Soft start and soft stop

    This technology makes sure that your garage door opens and closes softly. Your roller door opens almost without a sound and also closes this way. This does not only provide for a quiet running, it also extends the lifecycle of your door.

    Smart Home

    Roller doors by heroal are compatible with all standard smart home systems. Using your smart phone or tablet, you can easily check or change the locking status of your garage door while you are on your way. Choose the settings of your roller door so that it closes by itself when you leave the garage.

    Emergency hand crank

    An emergency hand crank is particularly useful if there is no second exit and the only entry is through the garage door. The emergency hand crank allows you to open the garage door manually, if the electric drive should fail to operate. The lockable crank can be installed outside. This device is available for all heroal roller doors.

  • What makes heroal roller doors so secure?

    Burglary resistance

    Available as an accessory of the roller door system heroal RD 75, the three-part anti-push-up device offers burglary resistance and protects the curtain from damage. A violent manual opening of the closed roller door is made more difficult, and an additional anti-abrasion textile protects the curtain. The roller door system RD 75 has a guide rail with storm hook lock that provides for more stability and hence additional burglary protection. This way, the system withstands extreme wind loads. Of course, all heroal roller doors have been certified by the technical testing organisation TÜV.

    Protection against accidents

    Integrated light sensors provide for automatic obstacle recognition and stop the roller door as soon as the light barrier is interrupted. All heroal garage doors are equipped with an anti-drop protection. This protection catches and holds the roller door and prevents uncontrolled unwinding. Accident prevention is simply the best protection.

Useful information

  • What are the advantages of aluminium roller doors?

    You will enjoy your aluminium roller garage door for a long time to come. Aluminium is a particularly resistant material characterised by a very long, low-maintenance service life. The insensitivity of aluminium also makes it easy to clean and maintain. Aluminium roller garage doors make a valuable contribution to ecological sustainability. Aluminium roller garage doors ensure maximum energy efficiency with minimum material use. In addition, heroal uses 85% recycled aluminium, which means energy savings of 95% compared to the extraction of new aluminium. The use of aluminium for your garage door means maximum design variety, because aluminium combines stability with premium surfaces. This makes it possible to build particularly wide roller garage doors.

  • What is the difference between roll-formed and extruded roller door slats?

    In roll forming, aluminium strips are passed through successive rollers and formed into the desired shape for the slats piece-by-piece. These slats have a particularly high wind load resistance compared to an extruded slat. Extruded profiles are made from an aluminium press block that is heated and then pressed. The result is a slat in the desired shape with a very high material thickness, which makes the slat and the garage door overall more stable and robust. An extruded slat is particularly useful when you need increased safety or high stability.

  • Should a roller door be installed as an open or closed variant?

    Closed roller garage door installation

    In closed installation, a shutter box protects the rolled up curtain of the roller garage door. It not only has an elegant design, but also protects the roller garage door and the mechanical components inside the shutter box from environmental influences. Closed assembly is the most common choice for the private and commercial sectors.

    Open roller garage door installation

    Open mounting is also referred to as mounting without a shutter box. If you need extra wide and extra high garage doors, open installation without a shutter box is the perfect solution for optimal use of space. Open mounting is often used in underground garages and in industrial areas.

  • What kinds of drive are available?

    With so many advantages of electric roller garage doors, a garage door without an electric drive is almost unthinkable today. In addition to the convenience of remote controls and smartphone controls, security also plays a major role. For example, automatic obstacle detection can protect against accidents and injuries caused by closing doors. There are a variety of options for installing your garage door drive. We offer roller garage doors with a geared motor, overhead doors with side-mounted drives and overhead doors with centre-mounted drives.

    Roller garage door with geared motor

    A geared motor is usually side-mounted on roller garage doors. They are used for large doors that are heavy and see frequent use, for example, in underground garages and in the industrial sector

    Overhead door with side-mounted drive

    Overhead doors with side-mounted drives are always used for very small garages with low lintel heights. A 65 mm lintel is sufficient for side-mounting the overhead door drive.

    Overhead door with centre-mounted drive

    Centre-mounted drives are located in the centre below the raised overhead door. They are particularly suitable for large roller garage doors up to 4 x 4 m.
