Garage Space or Extra Workspace – Security is Paramount

For many, having a secure space to store their vehicle is an important priority. Whether you use your garage space for storing your vehicle or as an extra workspace like a tool shed, home office or gym, you will want to make sure it's adequately secure in order to protect the valuables inside.
Domestic garage doors can offer users many features that we will mention further down, but one of the most important to be considered is always security.

Vortex Garage Doors provide users with independently tested and approved security certification both to Secured by Design and LPS 1175 issue 8, security rating B3 (SR2).
Secured by Design certification means that the garage door is police and insurance approved and that it has been specially designed to resist forced entry attempts using patented internal systems.

LPS 1175 is a certification used to test the resistance to unauthorised access offered by physical security products. 

LPS 1175 considers the resistance of security equipment to forced entry based on the type of tools used and the time that intruders will spend attempting to gain entry. 

LPS 1175 is the most widely recognised, trusted, and often preferred marque of third-party approval.

Installing a certified security product not only helps keep intruders out but will also avoid the emotional burden that comes with having a property violated.

Also, the greater the security around your property, the more attractive your insurance premium will be. Therefore, not only do Vortex Garage Doors act as a strong physical barrier and effective deterrent, but they can also potentially reduce the cost of your insurance premiums.
Attention to detail is extremely important when creating a highly secure product, which is why Vortex Garage Doors feature high strength extruded aluminium profiles, the shutter curtain is retained within the side guides and an end retention system on each lath delivers massive resistance to impact or forced entry. The UK manufactured product is certified to resist wind speeds of over 110 mph for widths up to 6 metres wide.

Vortex Garage Doors are unquestionably one of the most secure garage door systems on the market; third party certification provides property owners with confidence that they are receiving a professionally and independently certified product, and peace of mind in assuring their vehicle and other high-value contents are truly safe.

Additional features from the Vortex Garage Door include:
  • A patented lath design to allow 40 – 50% smaller roll zones than any other rolling door system on the market. In fact, the Vortex Garage Door fits a 2600mm high door into an impressive 165mm box.
  • Minimal protrusion into the garage & maximised clear opening dimensions as a result of smaller roll-zones.
  • A wide variety of control options to open and close the Vortex Garage Door at the push of a button - perfect if it’s cold, icy, or rainy outside and you don’t want to leave the comfort of your vehicle to open the door.
  • All doors are fully factory-installed and set up to ensure fault-free installation in reduced time. Vortex Garage Doors are delivered with pre-wired control panels and factory coded fobs and safety.

Vortex Garage Doors are manufactured in the UK under ISO 9001 conditions, ensuring complete control over product quality and lead times.

Vortex Garage Doors are the smallest rolling and strongest in the garage door market, which combined with the speed and ease of installation, are making it the preferred choice of both property owners and garage door installers.
