A range of security roller shutters for circumstances which require a higher level of security for homes, medium security for offices or commercial use depending on aperture size and risk. These can be either solid shutters or punched or perforated slats creating a balance between security and display.
Our standard colours are white or brown, however they can be powder coated in a variety of coloured finishes as an optional extra (see colours/slats page). Shutter slats are of double skinned extruded aluminium for external or internal installation.
Swivel or Geared Belt shutters are operated using a belt. Larger shutters are operated by using a geared crank handle.
Rod Crank shutters are operated using a geared rod crank winding handle which, when not in use, is cliped underneath the box.
Spring Loaded shutters are used for external operation which is useful for exit doors or counters. A lock can be incorporated into the bottom slat if required.
Motor & Switch operation are best for larger shutters but can also be used on smaller installations. Motors are fitted inside the shutter axle and require a 3 amp fuse and 240V supply. Operation is usually by rocker switch, key switch or remote control as standard but other controls methods are available. In the event of a power supply failure a manual override can be added to operate from inside. Where desirable a manual override can also be engaged through the outside of an externally fitted shutter box. Under these circumstances a lockable override cover is available as an optional extra to maximise security. Multi-shutter installations can also be operated from a central or group of switches.
For external face fitting, measure the opening width and height. Add 60mm each side for the guide rails. This is the Overall Guide Width. The roller shutter box fits above the opening.
For internal reveal fitting measure the opening width and height. The shutter width required includes the guide rails. The height includes the shutter box.
Note: Bear in mind loss of light at the top of the opening when considering internal fitting.
The size of the shutter box is dependent on the height of the shutter (see our price guide page).
Ensure the walls or frame can provide a secure fixing. Walls over 300mm thick will require an extension for the manual crank handle.
