Trojon Cements its Position as The UK’s Fastest Growing Roller Garage Door Manufacturer

Demonstrating a strategic forward-thinking approach, Leicester-based Trojon Roller Doors - a British manufacturer of high-quality roller garage doors – is now in the enviable position of being the fastest growing domestic roller shutter company in the UK.

Parent company Secure-it started life two decades ago, and originally manufactured for the steel galvanised commercial shutter sector, installing direct to the end user. However, for the last five years the firm has concentrated on domestic roller garage doors through the Trojon brand. 

And in that time, it has established a burgeoning reputation for making and supplying ‘fitter friendly’ products, as Associate Director Tony Spong explains:
“Since moving into the domestic roller garage door sector, we’ve been pouring all our knowledge, skills and experience into manufacturing a door made with the best quality parts and produced very much with the fitter in mind,” he explains.
“A big part of this is that we don’t make doors in kit form and then send them out to be put together, as they then have to be drilled, riveted and screwed together on the customer’s driveway.
“Instead, all Trojon doors are sent out complete and ready to offer up and install - saving time, money, effort and inconvenience.”
“In short, we are building a business around the needs of the installer,” continues Tony. 
“We do everything with them in mind and welcome all suggestions to ensure we continually improve and develop our brand.
“For example, we are the only manufacturer supplying a factory-fitted external override emergency release kit that fits directly onto the door guide – installers simply connect the rods and away you go!
“This idea came from talking to our clients, who told us they were looking for this innovation to further reduce fitting time and labour costs. So that’s what we gave them – and it’s exactly this sort of thing that makes installers trust and use Trojon.”

This is a view shared by Trojon customer Bruce Thompson, of the Cotswold Garage Door Company:
“I have installed roller door products from all the big names in the industry and I have to say, that after installing Trojon products, the installation of their doors and service as a company are incomparable,” he says.
“I have already recommended them to other garage door installation companies that I know, who, having made the move over to Trojon have had a similar experience. Once you’ve installed a Trojon roller door you become a bit spoilt, so much is already done for you that you won’t go back to anything else.”

As members of the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF), all Trojon roller doors are manufactured in-house at their purpose-built factory. They are fully CE approved and adhere to the latest European Regulations/Directives. 

The company’s core product is the Premier 77 insulated roller garage door with a standard 300mm box. The 77mm profile has been tested and developed to also be used with a smaller 250mm hood box (for doors up to 5500mm width), addressing any height restrictions, so there is no need to turn to an inferior compact door. 

The doors come in a full range of colours, as well as painted wood effects, and laminated finishes. Trojon also offer a bespoke door powder coating service. 

All Trojon doors come with NRG or Somfy controls (wired or wireless) as standard. In addition, trojon doors are compatible with other control systems (ANSA, NVM and Britalia etc.).

There are also other services available to trade customers. These include a user-friendly online ordering system, allowing installers to submit accurate door orders to their customers specifications. 

With a wealth of technical knowledge and practical experience within the company, installers have access to a specialist team who provide ongoing technical information, advice and guidance to the trade.

The Trojon team work hard to ensure products are supplied to high standards, with a free weekly delivery service available across most UK mainland locations and a fast order to delivery turnaround time – usually within seven working days.

Tony concludes that it is the company’s focus on helping fitters, coupled with a determination to do the basics right, that is driving success:
“We frequently liase with our trade customers and understand what they value most–quality products, that are easy to install, delivered when they need them. So, that’s what we do and, it is driving the phenomenal growth we have been experiencing since joining the domestic roller garage door industry.”
