GLIDEROL Timba-Glide Series
Yeah, that’s right – real timber.
Gliderol is one of the few Australian Garage Door manufacturers that produces real timber doors. Real wooden garage doors, while heavy and periodically needing a resealing every few years, can benefit owners with more than just a unique door that is a conversation-starter. Timber is a brilliant conductor of natural heat that can help warm and naturally regulate the temperature of your garage. Unlike custom doors of the ali-panel design with their opportunity for endless combinations – timber doors are produced in rather unique and individual handmade designs. These are an intimate choice for those looking for a highly personalised and sophisticated garage door.
Note: real timber garage doors are heavy and cumbersome. This factor in their design then means owners will require a heavy duty, premium automatic garage door opener capable of operating such a weight to function at full capacity.

Gliderol Garage Door Add-on features
Most garage doors will come with the option to be fully kitted out with a wide variety of optional features and add-ons that will contribute to the safety, functionality and added security for your door. Most of these features, like smart-phone operation, LED safety lights, Wireless PE safety beams, etc. come packaged with your choice of garage door opener. Gliderol garages themselves, however, provide their buyers with the opportunity to access their Storm Safe systems, the Guide-Lok & the Panel-Lok. These are purchased and installed upon installation.
Storm Safe Systems
Available with all of the doors in Gliderol’s Essential’s Series, the Storm Safe system is a preventative measure you can adopt and install in defence against high-wind environments that could typically dislodge and remove a garage door from it’s tracks in the case of cyclonic conditions.
Gliderol Roller doors featuring the Storm Safe system are installed with the patented Guide-Lok technology, this state-of-the-art and corrosion resistant design has been independently tested and certified to be the best line of defence between you and the harsh Australian weather conditions.
The design includes windlock clips on the curtain door and extra deep aluminium guides, all the while keeping a custom-designed nylon feed that will keep your door running smoothly with minimal noise in spite of all the added technology around your door.
The Storm Safe system installed into Gliderol doors of the section Safe-T-Glide designs feature the patented Panel-Look system. This function comes fitted with aluminium end caps installed on the bottom of each panel, interlocking with a specially designed aluminium upright to automatically lock in place should a cyclonic event occur.
As an efficiently, lightweight system this added feature does not incumber the door system, therefore strengthening it against high winds. Much like the aforementioned Guide-Lok system, the panel-Lok technology is corrosion resistant, neat in appearance and easy to install.
Maintaining your Gliderol garage door
CLEANING YOUR GLIDEROL GARAGE DOOR
Essential Series: To further your door’s life-expectance and to prevent wear and deterioration, we recommend that you regularly clean your garage door. This can include washing your door with a sponge or clothe with fresh, clean water. Soap and warm water can be applied in case of the above not working. Remember to rinse and remove any leftover chemicals from your door following any cleaning.
Timber garage Doors: If your sealer begins to fade, be sure to get a refresher coat to continue protecting your door from the elements.
Custom Garage Doors: with aluminium frames and acrylic or prolycarbonate inserts should be regularly washed with fresh, clean water. If this method does not remove all the dirt from the surface use any non-corrosive/non-abrasive polycarbonate acrylic cleaner.
Caution: Never use abrasive or solvent type cleaners like turpentine, petrol, kerosene or paint thinners to clean door surfaces as it may ruin the finish. Additionally, don’t use abrasive and harsh bristle brushes that may scratch or ruin your door’s finish.
Note: immediately following any form of hail damage we insist that our customers immediately reseal their door. In the case of this kind of damage, talk to one of our team members today.
MAINTAINING YOUR GLIDEROL GARAGE DOOR
Lubrication/dusting tracks – to protect your door’s quality and maintain its smooth operation, we recommend that your regularly wipe clean and lubricate your garage door’s tracks. We insist that you use garage door specific lubricant for the best results.
Balancing – Over time and following frequent use, a garage door’s spring system can become worn and relaxed. To test your garage door’s continued balanced operation – turn off your garage door motor and manually raise the door with the emergency opening system. Raising the door to its halfway point will tell you if your door is balanced or not. Does it continue rising? Your spring system is too tense. Does it lower back down? Your springs are too loose. Manually raising a door itself will tell you if there is resistance in the tracks. The action should be easy and effortless. A well balanced spring system will make lifting your door without its automatic opener a total breeze.
Auto-reverse/safety systems checks – Built into your opener should be an additional sensor the can recognise when the door is meeting an object resistance. This auto-reverse system will recognise when the door has collided on something when it use. It will then reverse its motion and stop lowering on a person or object.
These safety systems, with the ageing of the opener itself, can deteriorate over time. Periodically, we recommend that you close your garage door, and during operation place a gentle hand beneath the closing door and apply some resistance. Depending on your door’s auto-reverse system’s settings, the door should return upwards following a certain amount of resistance. If no amount of resistance can activate the auto-reverse system then you should consider this a malfunction of the utmost priority.
If this is the case, contact our Eden Roc Garage Door servicing team for help today.
Wireless Safety PE beams are far more easy to test – while your door is lowering, wave a hand in front of the safety beam system – if this doesn’t reverse your garage door then there is a malfunction in your Safety PE Beam system.
Visual inspection/Weatherseals – In order to conserve your garage door’s protection from the elements – we recommend that you periodically look over your door and inspect its individual components for rust, weathering, spider webs or dust. Knowing your doors condition will always help you understand your door. This will help notify you when your garage door is ageing or getting ready for a new clean or service.
