We have a range of security roller shutters suitable for different retail security and shop environments together with a higher security level for commercial, office or industrial roller shutter doors. These can be either solid shutters or punched or perforated slats creating a balance between security and product display. Our roller shutter slats are either of 75mm galvanised steel or a larger 77mm single wall extruded and punched aluminium slat which provides strength whilst delivering 58.5% vision (see slats page).
For steel shutters our standard slat colour is galvanised and for our aluminium shutters our standard slat colours are white or brown, however both steel and aluminium can be powder coated in a variety of coloured finishes as an optional extra (see colours/slats page). The shutter box can be fitted onto the external face or internally on the reveal.
There are a choice of spring/lock or electric shutter operation methods for the 75mm slats. The 77mm slat version is only available with electric operation.
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 90mm 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).
