People all throughout Australia know that when it comes to purchasing garage roller doors there is only one manufacturer you can trust – B&D. For decades, owners of residential and commercial property have trusted B&D roller doors to protect not just the goods and items stored in a garage, but to protect their entire home.
B&D started back in 1946. Two individuals, Paul Davidson and Arthur Byrne, gathered together and decided to start their own steel finishing company. The two gathered their funds together and were able to build from the ground up their own factory in Botany.
It was one invention that changed the course of history for B&D. In 1955, an inventor by the name of Ben Saul created a new, imaginative door called the Roll-A-Door. Previously, nothing like it had been introduced to the public.
The Roll-A-Door was a strong, sturdy garage roller door that allowed people to protect the items in their garage when the door was closed. When it was opened, the door easily collapsed on itself, saving much needed space.
The Roll-A-Door was introduced as new line of garage roller doors in 1956 and quickly grew in popularity. Residential and commercial property owners loved the concept and wanted to install it on their properties.
Over the years, B&D made improvements to the original design of the Roll-A-Door. They made it easier to open and close, changed how it was opened, and even added some deluxe features such as the Controll-A-Door, which allowed people to open their garage doors with just a touch of a button.
In the 1980s, B&D was always known by its initials. That all changed in 1985. B&D was sold to another company – Clyde Industries/Development Capital of Australia. Once the sale was complete, B&D officially changed its name to B&D Doors.
Even though it changed its name, people still often refer to the company as B&D.
