Numerous garage door accessories are available to further improve function and form of your garage door. Our aesthetic accessories allow you to match your garage door sympathetically with others in the property, or in its immediate surroundings.
In its constant pursuit of quality, Silvelox believes in overseeing the manufacture of every component part that goes into our doors. And so it was logical that, rather than pass responsibility for making the electric motors to a third party, we should do it ourselves. Produced entirely by Silvelox, and protected by an international patent, the motors are a marriage of functionality and aesthetics. But in this instance it's a case of hidden beauty, as the motor drive is concealed in the upper cross-section of the door's perimeter frame. It operates faultlessly and almost silently, requiring no unsightly ceiling tracks or impeding passage in any way. It even thinks for itself. Using auto-diagnostic electronics to detect a malfunction, the system indicates which components require attention by showing a different number of flashes on an L.E.D. display.
All Silvelox garage doors have what we call limited protrusion. This means that a much greater percentage of the door, when up and open, is protected inside the garage, thus shielding it from the elements. A completely non-protruding mechanism is also available. With this, the door in its entirety slides effortlessly into the garage interior. Situations where no protrusion is important include locations where the garage faces directly onto a pavement, or in an arched opening where the geometry of the aperture would preclude any protrusion. Neither our protruding nor our non-protruding mechanisms require the use of unsightly ceiling tracks.
A tubular perimeter seal between the frame and door acts as a 'protective space' should fingers stray there accidentally. The base of the door has an EPDM protective seal, with double tubular external and internal protrusions, to give similar protection at ground level. Furthermore, a Silblock device protects against the door dropping in the event of a power cut.
When manoeuvring a car in or out of a garage, particularly at an angle, every centimetre counts. To allow a slightly more sideways approach we can, on request, turn the counterweight fabrication through 90° and locate it adjacent to the frame on one or both sides of the garage door.
Each garage door is supplied with three coded keys for the operation of the opening locking cylinder, which has anti-unthreading protection. Silvelox customers will receive a security card when their doors and keys are supplied. This will allow order of further keys via Silvelox or an authorised CISA point. If requested then the Silvelox garage and entrance door key can be the same.
For motorised garage doors two or four channel remote controls are available, both with rolling code ID protection. Rolling code is the very latest generation of cloning and hacker-proof technology that can be incorporated into a remote control. All Silvelox remote controls are compatible with Homelink systems.
The handle, always a distinctive design element of Silvelox, is the technological soul of the garage door - and ease of use is at its heart. Simply rotate the handle clockwise and, via a patented system, the door will begin to raise. Turn it anti-clockwise and the pedestrian door (where fitted) will open. It's the little things that make the big difference with Silvelox' ranges. Such as the way that the handle has been embedded to minute tolerances into the panel in an ergonomic approach that is both practical and aesthetic. It is supplied as standard with an exclusive Platinbronze finish, but you can chose from a multitude of alternative finishes - Platinbronze, Platinsilver, Brass and Antique Bronze.
Silvelox offers a range of double-glazed windows that will bring light to your room and change the visual impact of the door without compromising its security characteristics. On garage doors glazing can be of a polycarbonate material or 4/4 mm security glass. Polycarbonate is just as aesthetically pleasing as glass but is less heavy. Polycarbonate is available in embossed bronze (cincilla bronze), embossed clear and flat transparent. Security glass is available in the finishes below. The interior face of the windows is of embossed clear or flat transparent polycarbonate.
Upon request, it is possible for doors to incorporate pre-painted metal grills with louvers that blend with the door design.
In case of tall garages, where there may be a space between the top of the garage door and roof, Silvelox can supply overhead transoms that match the design, the wood and the colour of the garage door. To give more light to the garage, Silvelox can fit the transom with fixed or tilting windows.
If the garage door is also used as an entrance door we can design in a letter box with an external flap in the same finish as the door handle.
Should you wish to incorporate windows into your Silvelox doors, we offer a range of attractive glazing options.
