Recent survey results showed security is the most important factor when buying a garage door. This comes as no surprise since the garage is a key target for thieves and can provide an easy access point into the entire home.
Pride Garage Doors incorporate a number of security features as standard. All our doors are made from the highest quality aluminium and have no visible handles or locks for intruders to target. A patented anti-lift locking system prevents the door from being lifted from below. Should an attempt be made to forcible open the door an integral 100db alarm will sound (free optional extra depending on system configuration, a non-integral alarm is offered as an alternative for free).
High strength extruded aluminium guide channels protect the door curtain from lateral attack. The control systems we use are either Somfy or Teleco, which are regarded as the best in the industry worldwide. Both offer rolling code security, meaning that they transmit a different signal each time you use it preventing criminals from using code stealing technology.
With Pride Garage Doors, it's very easy to see what you're getting. The details of the equipment ordered are clearly in writing and the specifications for that equipment is freely available and verifiable.
However, there are garage door companies that are not so transparent, some have little to no security at all and do not use rolling code security and they certainly don’t bring it to your attention.
Pride Garage Doors is one of the few rollup door companies located in the South of England able to install doors to a Police Preferred 'Secured by Design' status. Our Elite door supplied by Aluroll is tested and certified to LPS 1175 SR1 level by the Loss Prevention & Certification Board (LPCB), the world's leading body in the certification of security products. Attainment of the LPCB rating automatically ensures Police Preferred 'Secured by Design' status. Our products are just some of the very few that comply with both sets of test criteria.
