Please keep the door shut
We had quite a few issues with the automation of our Gliderol Roller door and finally had a replacement motor sent to us. All has been going reasonably well until 6 months ago. Frequently when using the remote to close the door (on our way out) we come home to find the door fully open??? And so it needs resetting... frequently. Not good to go out presuming your home is safely locked up but that tricky little gadget (the remote) or (the motor) thinks otherwise. And so after all the issues we have had right from the day of purchase I would not recommend a Gliderol Roller Door for your garage. This unit is only 4 yrs 6 months old. Don't feel like the expense of replacing it.
Biggest piece of junk I’ve come across
We moved into a home fitted with a Gliderol garage door by the builder and it has been a problem since day one. The door has never worked properly, it was installed with the motor too low, there were gaps in the seals, so leaves and dirt blew under the door and the noise, it sounded like the roller coaster at Luna Park. We had Gliderol out to repair it numerous times and they did such a bad job, it ended up damaging the door, as it was adjusted incorrectly, and the chain chewed a hole through the top of the door. Then to add insult to injury..., we found out that if the motor fails we would have to replace the whole driveshaft, as they have discontinued the motor. We decided to cut our losses and sent it to the scrap yard. We now have a beautiful BND door and don’t wake up the neighbours every time hubby goes to work in the early hours of the morning. If your builder is using these doors, run!
Have used Gliderol for many years and have never had a problem with any of their doors.
Always provided us with good quality Australian made doors.
The GRD factory fit motors are great for jobs with minimal sideroom.
