Humble Beginnings

Somewhat ironically, the beginning of SeceuroGlide Garage Doors began in a garage in the Northwest of England, back in 1985. Our founder and original Managing Director of SWS UK (the manufacturer of SeceuroGlide) saw a gap in UK home security following a trip to other European countries. He realised that European homeowners were using compact aluminium roller shutters as an effective and discreet method of home security and was keen to introduce the concept to the UK. While roller shutters continue to be popular for securing homes, it was the introduction of SeceuroGlide that really caught the attention of British homeowners. When we launched the SeceuroGlide Original in 1997 it was the first roller garage door to be created for the domestic market. Its space-saving design and contemporary looks combined perfectly with clever, roller shutter technology and proved an instant hit with homeowners looking to secure their garage with a quality, robust door.

Following the success of the SeceuroGlide Original, we developed the range with the UK’s first low-headroom insulated roller garage door; the SeceuroGlide Compact in 2001. At this point, we were really beginning to make waves in the garage door industry, but it was the introduction of SeceuroGlide Excel in 2007 that cemented our reputation as garage door innovators. Another industry first, our revolutionary SeceuroGlide Excel was, at the time, the only roller garage door to be both Secured by Design and insurance approved with the LPS 1175 burglary resistance standard, following independent testing by the LPCB. To complete our roller garage door range, we went on to launch the SeceuroGlide Manual and the SeceuroGlide LT, allowing us to offer a perfect roller garage door solution for almost all homeowners.

In 2010 we used our knowledge and expertise to develop SeceuroGlide Sectional Garage Doors. With the same core values as our roller garage door range, SeceuroGlide Sectionals are quickly being recognised as the number one choice for quality and pioneering design.

Today, we’re proud that SeceuroGlide Garage Doors continue to lead the way in advanced design and innovative technology. And because we aspire to excel, we’re even prouder of the reputation we’ve achieved for providing the very best in quality and reliability.

Research and Development

We don’t believe in complacency and pin the success of SeceuroGlide Garage Doors on its evolving design and development. We use a dedicated, in-house research and development team who are the engine room behind all our products. With vast industry knowledge, they are credited with developing the SeceuroGlide range while ensuring they remain at the forefront of garage door security, safety and technology.

Manufactured in the British Countryside

We consider ourselves very lucky as we get to work in the beautiful Lune Valley, located in the Northwest of England (not too far from the Lake District). All SeceuroGlide Garage Doors are made in our purpose-built factory using state-of-the-art machinery and our tried and tested manufacturing methods. We’re also extremely proud of the established trading relationship we’ve built with a prominent German supplier for our raw materials. We believe that this makes SeceuroGlide the best in British engineering and quality German products.
