How Does Roll-Smart Work?

Roll-Smart is a motion detection device which is far more effective than using photocells, making your automated garage door a lot safer. A slimline Roll-Smart track is fitted to the back of the roller door. The track is equipped with state of the art electronics which together with a bottom rail mounted magnetic sensor, enables the system to scan the closing movement. It is incredibly effective and will always detect children, cars and any other obstructions in the garage door’s route. This guarantees a safe closing movement every time.

Your Current System May Not Meet The Legal Requirements

There are actually many law in place which governs automated garage doors. Despite them being created for your safety, thousands of households in the UK are fully unaware that their automated garage door may be illegal. The main legal documents The main legal documents which are relevant to garage doors are:

  • The Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 (SMR)
  • The Construction Products Regulation 2011 – EU No.305/2011 (CPR)
  • European Standard For Garage Doors (BS EN 123241-1:2003 + A1:2011)

The laws require that all new garage doors must be verifiably safe when they are put on the market. This is fairly straightforward to check by looking out for CE markings, reading the relevant documents from the person responsible, making sure you have a hold to run control, and, carrying out regular checks of the motion detection system.

There is an unsafe practice which many automated garage doors have been installed with called photocells. Photocells are sensors used to detect motion and stop the automated garage door in its track. However, because there have been many accidents over the years of the doors impacting a person or object, photocells on their own are not enough to ensure your garage door meets the legal regulations. Any person intending to fit an automated garage door with only a photocell for safety is now conducting an illegal installation and leaving the door a danger to the user. Photocells only detect motion across one point of the door’s closing route and they can be easily knocked out of place, making them completely useless.

Roll-Smart is a fully CE compliant solution. The product complies with the very latest CE marking and Radio Equipment Directives. Roll-Smart is the ideal solution to ensure that your door complies with the Construction Products Regulation (EU No.305/2011) and the force limitation test in accordance with EN 12453. Trust us as professional garage door specialists, that Roll-Smart is the ideal safety product, which will ensure your garage door is compliant with the legal regulations.
