    Just stay away from gryphon or however it's spelt, we had a panel door installed. Getting warranty work done was a nightmare, and now it's out of warranty it's been falling to bits.

      I just has a sectional door supplied and fitted by Centurion (Wangara mob). It was a difficult fit (took the installer a full day to fiddle around and get it right), but they took the time and did it very well. I don't have any association Dubs - just a heads up if you're getting quotes.

        I have heard some bad things about B&D as well.
        Have heard good things about gliderol. a mate of mine is a service tech for roller doors, he might be able to install it, but wouldn't be able to do anything about costs.

          gryphon are the buggers that fucked us around to no end and now our door is falling to bits. a simple warranty replacement like a spring was a nightmare, and now it's out of warranty the brackets are coming away from the wall and the motor is fucked. not to mention another spring breaking. might just be bad luck, but that was our experience anyways.

            89 Enterprises in Willeton. They do B&D rollers.

            Good friends with the owners.

            Can give you an introduction if you like or can get him to contact you if you're interested.

              we got ours done a couple of years ago by centurion as well, sectional wood look. i was happy with the job, very neat install, fairly quiet door and they set the motor up and fine tuned it properly so it closes quickly but slows down for the last bit so it settles in all nice and snug without slamming.

                Sounds like a job for consumer protection dude. The 'warranty' period the company gives you doesnt really mean much.

                  It does, but I'm not the one who paid for the door so don't have the motivation to sort it. If they were forced to come and fix it, it would likely be another dodgy job anyways. I'm planning on rebuilding the thing myself, redoing the brick drilling which was appauling amongst other things. That way it'll be done properly.

                    So we are pretty sorted now and i have one small issue, I need a door of some kind to fill the gap between the garage and the front forecourt.
                    It is around 700mm wide but 2000mm high and has no frame ATM, its just brickwork on both sides.
                    I need it to be weather proof to keep the elements out and also lockable and as secure as possible.



                    Help me PSB brains trust, you're my only hope.

                      Nice drawing ya got there Dubs...
                      What about something like a colorbond frame, with timber infil, and maybe a small drain in front of it to stop water overflow?

                        Dubs, who did you end up going with for the door? I'm looking around at the moment for something similar to what you were after, any info you could pass on would be great.

                          On the original topic;

                          Had a sectional door installed by gryphon, price was competitive and the door was a good fit. Been up for a few years and is still good, doesn't appear to need any adjustment yet.

                          The new place has a sectional centurion door and the fit is very good. The motor that they use is better compared to grphyon, it's quieter and has a battery backup.

                          Got a couple of B&D roller doors on the workshop and they don't take too well to the weather. I have a centurion roller door on the back of the garage so will be interesting to see if one is better than the other.

                            I went with Gryphon, great service and it's still working.
