Roll-up Doors

Combining Design and Comfort with Security

Garage doors often provide direct access to one’s home, and protect all valuable belongings inside; it is for this reason that a secure roll-up garage door is of utmost importance. heroal garage doors offer not only tested burglar security , but also certified protection from hail and storms . The range includes roller doors, overhead doors, and roller grilles in a variety of colors and design variations .

Additionally, the automatic control system provides comfort and freedom when it comes to adjusting your garage door. Reliability and durability remain at the forefront of every quality item produced by heroal.

What Sets heroal Roll-Up Doors Apart ?

Premium Burglar Resistance

As the latest statistics have proven, there has been a troubling increase in garage burglaries in recent years. With criminals seeking out the weakest entry point of a home or commercial facility, the door can easily be levered out of the guide rails. To combat this increased crime, heroal has developed a tried and tested roll-up door system, produced with extra-strength, premium-quality materials and high stability guide rails. In addition to supreme burglar resistance, the garage doors also protect against harsh weather conditions.

Designed to Your Preference

Roll-up garage doors are not only a practical solution, but a sophisticated design element too, made to compliment the exterior aesthetic of your home. The heroal range of roll-up doors can be custom-designed to fit large openings in buildings, and take up as little space as possible when opened – this way, the high-quality doors fit seamlessly into the overall appearance of the building. Choose from an extensive color palette and plenty of surface optics; create your own combination with visual, grille and ventilation profiles that match your house exterior.

A User-Friendly System for Everyday Use

With an intuitive and easy-to-use system, operating the robust aluminum roll-up doors is a simple and enjoyable process. Each system is made of individual components and comfort elements such as electrical devices or controls. Your safety is our priority. Accident prevention is taken seriously in the engineering of all heroal garage doors; this can be seen with features such as an anti-fall device and an optional manual override system.

Everything you need to know about roll-up doors

  • Electric garage door

    An electric motor on your garage door means you can control your roll-up door automatically. Operating a large garage door that is exceptionally wide with an electric motor is a particularly convenient and energy-saving solution. The door is easily controlled from your smartphone or with a radio transmitter – or even manually via a permanently installed switch. You also have the option to control the locking state of your garage from your smartphone while you are away from home, and to close the door if necessary. A sensor detects obstacles while the roll-up door is in operation and stops the motor. Read on for further information about an electric motor for your garage door.

  • Garage door sizes

    heroal roll-up doors are available in either standard or customized sizes. It does not matter if the roll-up door has to be particularly narrow or wide – you can select any height and width for your garage door. heroal roll-up doors are divided into three categories that are determined by height and width: doors for low-lintel low-rise garages, doors for small garages that require a space-saving solution, and roll-up doors for large garages with a maximum width of 6,000 mm (approx. 20 feet) and a maximum height of 5,000 mm (approx. 16.5 feet). heroal doors are thus particularly well-suited for retrofitting in your garage.

  • The advantages of aluminum roll-up doors

    You’ll be able to enjoy an aluminum roll-up door for years to come. Aluminum is a highly resilient material and therefore has a particularly long and low-maintenance life. Because it is so robust, aluminum is also easy to clean and maintain. Aluminum roll-up doors make a valuable contribution to environmental sustainability, because they allow you to achieve maximum energy efficiency with minimal use of materials. In addition, 85% of the aluminum used by heroal is recycled, which represents an energy saving of 95% compared to the extraction of new aluminum. Using aluminum for your garage door also means that you have the greatest possible choice of design, since aluminum combines stability with a high-quality surface. This makes a very wide roll-up door possible.

Which Roll-Up Door Is Right for Me?

Whether you need a garage door for the private sector or in commercial and industrial operation, heroal’s aluminum roll-up door systems are flexibly adapted to various installation situations with a great variety of configurations. We will help you choose the right roll-up door system, because heroal has the right system for every type of installation – whether it is a roll-up door for a particularly small or very large garage you need, or one with a particularly low lintel height. But it’s not just the system itself that we offer you – there is a host of other details that should be considered when you choose a roll-up door for your garage, such as the color, the surface of the rod and motor options. And with accessories such as a smart home system, soft start and soft stop, you can make your roll-up door safer and more user-friendly. Learn more about the differences, special features and extras of roll-up garage doors and find the right garage door for your needs.

Choosing the right roll-up door system

Choosing your roll-up door system forms the basis for all your other decisions regarding your garage door. heroal roll-up doors are available in a wide variety of designs to meet different needs. These are all based on four systems – two roll-up door systems, one overhead door and a roller grille system. These can all be adapted to your individual requirements through different roll-up door rods, mounting methods, colors and a variety of other extras. Find out here which system is right for you and what the fundamental differences between the systems are.

Roll-Up Door RD 55

  • Space-saving solution for installation situations with minimal space
  • Low winding diameter
  • Small box sizes for an attractive appearance

Roll-up Door RD 75

  • Ideal for large openings
  • Wide selection of design variations
  • Roll-formed or extruded material
  • Extreme wind stability
  • Anti-push-up device

Overhead Door OD 75

  • A particularly space-saving roll-up door solution for deep rooms
  • Center drive for larger doors
  • Lateral drive for smaller doors with minimal ceiling height

The roll-up door rod

You have a choice of different roll-up door profiles depending on the roll-up door system you choose. These are the standard, sight, grille and ventilation profiles. In addition, roll-up door rods can be roll-formed or extruded. Find out more about the difference between a roll-formed and an extruded roll-up door rod, as well as which sizes can be realized with which rod in terms of width and height.

Roll-formed or extruded?

With roll forming, aluminum strips are sent through rollers arranged one behind the other, forming the desired shape of the roll-up door rod piece by piece. This rod has a particularly high wind load resistance compared to an extruded rod. Extruded profiles are made from an aluminum billet that is heated and then pressed with a pressing tool. This forms a strand in the desired form of the roll-up door rod with particularly great material thickness. What’s important here is that the stability and the robustness of the rod – and thus the roll-up door – is greatly increased by this. An extruded rod is especially useful if a higher degree of safety or stability is desired.

Roll-up door assembly – open or closed?

Closed installation

With a closed installation, a shutter box protects the rolled-up shutters of the roll-up door. Not only is this an elegant design, it also protects the roll-up door and the technology inside the shutter box from the weather and other environmental conditions. A closed installation is used most frequently in the private and commercial sector.

Open installation

An open installation is also referred to as an installation without a shutter box. If a roll-up door needs to be particularly wide and high, an open installation without a shutter box is the ideal solution for optimal use of space. An open installation is often used in underground garages and in the industrial sector.

Roll-up door motor

A garage door without an electric motor is almost unthinkable these days, because there are so many advantages of an electrically powered roll-up door. Beside the convenience of operating your door from a smartphone or through radio transmitters, safety also plays a major role. For example, automatic obstacle detection can protect people, animals and objects against accidents and injuries caused by moving doors. There are different ways of mounting your garage door motor. We make a distinction between roll-up doors with a geared motor, overhead garage doors with side motor and overhead garage doors with a motor mounted in the center.

Geared roll-up door motor

Geared motors are usually mounted on the side of a roll-up door. These are used for large, heavier doors that are used frequently – for example in underground garages and in the industrial sector.

Overhead door with side motor

You would use an overhead garage door with a motor installed to the side for a particularly small garage with a low lintel height. You only need a lintel height of 65 mm (approx. 2.5 inches) to use a side-mounted motor for an overhead door.

Overhead door with center motor

The center motor is located in the middle below the raised overhead door. It is particularly suitable for large roll-up doors with sizes of up to 4 x 4 m (approx. 13 x 13 feet).

Variety of designs for your roll-up door

heroal 2-layer thick resist finish

This coating is applied before roll forming of the aluminum components and used extensively for the roll-up door rods. Surfaces treated in this way are intense in color, easy to clean, long-lasting and particularly UV-resistant. Even after years, the color of your roll-up door will not fade, but be as bright as the day you installed it.

heroal hwr powder coating

This coating technology was developed for extruded profiles and is optimally matched to the 2-layer thick resist for roll-formed products. It ensures that windows, roller shutters and roll-up doors have a uniform appearance. The heroal hwr powder coating method meets the highest standards of quality and sustainability. It is particularly robust, highly weather-resistant and easy to clean.

Decorative film

In addition to the color options available, the roll-formed rods of the heroal RD 75 roll-up door and the OD 75 overhead door can also be finished with a decorative film. You can therefore also have a wood or concrete look in addition to the standard colors. The decorative film is applied to the outside of the roll-up door and can also be applied inside upon request. Shutter boxes, guides and end strips as well as sight, grille and ventilation profiles cannot be finished with this film.

heroal SD

The heroal Surface Design (SD) coating technology offers further creative possibilities. With heroal SD, you can opt for a wood, concrete or rust look. Besides giving you even more design options, this type of coating is also particularly robust. Because the aluminum is pre-treated with the heroal hwr powder coating, heroal SD coating has a higher quality than decorative film does.

Design Options for All Tastes

With heroal’s variety of design options, finding a suitable roll-up garage door that blends in with the aesthetic of the whole house, is a simple process. Something to match the rolling shutters, a color to compliment the house paint, or an element that fits with your home’s unique look – whatever it is, heroal’s roll-up door systems have it covered. There is a whole selection of features to choose from, including four different box sizes, versatile ventilation and visual profiles with or without acrylic glass or with expanded metal. Additionally, each system can be installed with a front-mounted 45° box or alternatively, a system inside the garage door. Here is a little foretaste of the wide range of colors available for heroal roll-up door systems.

Choose the Right Control and Security Elements for You

There are a variety of options when it comes to controlling your heroal garage door. From manual control via a wall-mounted radio transmitter to a simple app on your phone, heroal lets you operate and control your doors as you wish. Whether it’s central control at the push of a button, or timed programming for when you’re not at home – whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed the ultimate security. When it comes to safety, heroal offers plenty of choices. You can customize your roll-up door according to your needs, for example, with a warning light, a light signal, or a safety edge. Such safety precautions can be particularly useful for those with kids in the home. Our emergency crank handle is the ideal solution to keep your home protected even in the case of a power outage. Whatever your preference, we’ve got an option for you.

Soft start and soft stop

This technology ensures that your garage doors start to open smoothly and close gently. Your roll-up door will thus start almost silently and close equally softly. This not only makes the operation pleasantly quiet, it also extends the life of your door.


The three-part anti-lift-up device that is available as an accessory for the heroal RD 75 roll-up door system is burglar-proof and attractive. It has an additional textile component that protects the shell against abrasion and makes it difficult to open the roll-up door manually through pressure. A guide rail with storm hook lock also adds extra stability to the RD 75 roll-up door, and thus additional burglar resistance. You can rest assured that it will withstand even the strongest winds.

Smart Home

heroal roll-up doors are compatible with all major smart home systems. You can conveniently check and change the locking status of your garage door from your smartphone or tablet while you are away from your home. Program your roll-up door so that it closes automatically when you leave the garage.

Accident prevention

Integrated light sensors provide automatic obstacle detection and bring the roll-up door to a stop as soon as the light barrier is broken. All heroal garage doors come with an anti-fall device installed as standard. The roll-up door is caught and held by the anti-fall device, thereby preventing uncontrolled unwinding of the door. Accident prevention is the best form of protection.

Emergency crank handle

An emergency crank handle is particularly useful if your garage has no second exit and can only be accessed through the garage door. With the emergency crank handle, you can open the garage door manually if there is a problem with the electric motor. The crank can be attached on the outside and locked. This system is available for all heroal roll-up doors.
