How to Seal a Garage Roller Door with GaraDry® / Wrap-Around Roller Shutter Door Seal

Garage roller doors, especially in commercial settings, play a vital role in providing security and access control. However, maintaining a tight seal at the bottom is essential to prevent the ingress of debris, dust, and water. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the GaraDry® Wrap-Around Roller Shutter Door Seal, a perfect solution for commercial roller shutter doors, offering protection against external elements: 


Understanding the GaraDry® Wrap-Around Roller Shutter Door Seal:


Roller Shutter Seal


  1. Compatibility with T-bar Sections: This seal is designed to seamlessly wrap around the standard 75mm T-bar bottom sections commonly found on most commercial roller shutters.
  2. Debris and Water Protection: The primary function of the seal is to prevent debris, dust, and water from infiltrating your premises. It creates a secure barrier at the bottom of the roller shutter door.
  3. Enhanced Seal with Commercial Door Thresholds: For uneven floors, pairing the wrap-around roller seal with a commercial door threshold is recommended. This combination ensures a watertight seal between the door and the floor, even on irregular surfaces.



Material and Durability:

  1. PVC Construction: The GaraDry® Wrap-Around Roller Shutter Door Seal is crafted entirely from durable PVC material. This ensures longevity and resilience, allowing the seal to withstand prolonged exposure to water and direct sunlight.
  2. Weather Resistance: The PVC material is not only durable but also weather-resistant, making it an ideal choice for outdoor applications. It remains effective in various weather conditions, providing reliable protection year-round.


Installation and Customisation:

  1. Easy Installation: The kit includes a wrap-around seal and installation instructions. The seal can be easily cut to the desired length using a utility knife or hacksaw, facilitating a quick and straightforward installation process.
  2. Length Options: Available in lengths ranging from 2m to 10m, the seal can be tailored to fit the specific dimensions of your roller shutter door.


Maximise the Life of Your Roller Door with these Tips:

Garage roller doors, while robust and durable, benefit from regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Here are essential maintenance tips to keep your roller door operating smoothly:

1. Regular Visual Inspection:
Conduct a visual inspection of the entire roller door system. Look for signs of wear, rust, or damage to tracks, rollers, and hinges. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage.

2. Lubrication:
Apply a silicone-based lubricant to all moving parts, including rollers, hinges, tracks, and springs. Lubrication reduces friction, minimises wear and tear, and ensures quiet operation.

3. Tighten Loose Hardware:
Periodically check and tighten any loose bolts, nuts, or screws on the roller door and its components. Loose hardware can cause misalignment and compromise the door's functionality.

4. Inspect Weather Stripping:
Check the condition of the weather stripping along the edges of the roller door. Replace any damaged or worn weather seals to maintain a proper seal against the elements.

5. Test Auto-Reverse Feature:
If your roller door is equipped with an auto-reverse safety feature, regularly test its functionality. Place an object in the door's path during closing to ensure the door reverses as intended.

6. Balance Adjustment:
An unbalanced roller door can strain the motor and lead to premature wear. Test the door's balance by disconnecting the opener and manually operating the door. If it doesn't stay in place when partially open, adjust the balance.

7. Clear Tracks and Rollers:
Keep the tracks and rollers free from debris, dirt, and obstructions. Clean the tracks regularly and remove any accumulated dirt or leaves from the roller mechanisms.

8. Check Cables and Springs:
Inspect the cables and springs for signs of fraying, rust, or wear. These components are under tension and should only be adjusted or replaced by a professional if needed.


9. Address Uneven Movement:
If the roller door moves unevenly or makes unusual sounds, investigate the cause. Misaligned tracks, damaged rollers, or worn components may need attention.

10. Seasonal Maintenance:
Adjust your maintenance routine according to the seasons. Pay extra attention to weather stripping and insulation before the winter months to ensure optimal energy efficiency.

11. Professional Inspection:
Schedule periodic professional inspections to identify potential issues early. Professional technicians can perform a thorough assessment and recommend any necessary repairs or adjustments.

By incorporating these maintenance tips into your routine, you can enhance the performance and lifespan of your garage roller door. Consistent care ensures that the door operates smoothly, minimises the risk of unexpected breakdowns, and contributes to a safe and secure environment.
