Measuring for insulated roller doors
It’s important to look at which manufacturer you are going to be ordering from to understand exactly how you should measure for insulated roller doors. This is because many of them use different measurements to size their doors.
You need to measure the width and height of the opening as well as the inside faces on both sides of the opening. It’s also imperative to measure the headroom available to make sure that there is enough space for the rolled-up door to sit.
Measuring for single skin roller doors
If you’re buying a single skin roller garage door you need to know that it is only possible to fit this kind of door behind a structural opening. The only exception is if you are able to use a frame created to allow the support brackets and guides to face fit. Once again, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that you’re getting it exactly right.
The door ordering width will usually be the structural opening width plus 50mm, and the height will be the opening height measured from the floor to the bottom of the lintel.
