We have a range of roller shutters especially for domestic use. Lightweight and compact with a double skin foam filled aluminium slat for added insulation and sound deadening. You can find the prices for these shutters on our prices page. We can also supply a vented slat, creating a balance between security, light and vision if you prefer - please contact us for prices. All our products are made to measure and we deliver our shutters direct to your home for your own installation or you can take advantage of our UK wide installtion network. Our standard colours are white, brown, cream or cedar woodgrain.
The roller shutter box can be fitted onto the external face of your window opening or internally on the reveal or built in under the lintel. There are a choice of different types of shutter operation methods to match your budget and needs.
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.
