Information

For quick access to secured areas, whether temperature control or fire containment, high speed doors can complete an open close cycle in seconds.

Suitability
Carparks, garages, shopfronts, servery hatches, windows, doors, freight vehicles and loading bays are all ideal projects for roller shutters.

Installation
We can install roller shutters to existing openings and even incorporate them into the lintels of new builds, hiding all traces of the shutter while it is open. Typical installations are finished within a couple of hours and can be done at any time that suits you.

Materials
Roller shutters are very versatile and so the curtain can be manufactured from most materials, usually galvanised steel or aluminium with our without perforations, vision panels or powder coating.

Environmental control
Environment control can be a serious issue in some industries, keeping food areas clean, refrigerated areas cold and work areas warm as well as full industrial segregation for contamination purposes. For these reasons there are many additions to the roller shutter that can be included in order to conform with specific insulation and health and safety requirements you may have; such as insulated lath, dust sealing and wind locking as well as many operational additions such as remote controls, group switches and even iphone/android controlled doors.

Safety Features
We take safety very seriously here which is why as standard, all of our roller shutters are compliant with HSE and are all CE marked as such. All of our shutters are installed with the required safety features such as a safety brake to prevent the shutter from free-falling in the event of a motor failure and a photocell safety edge which stops the curtain from lowering if there is an obstacle in it’s way.

Maintenance
Roller shutters, by law, must be serviced by a certified engineer a minimum of every 12 months, more frequently if the shutters are operated more than twice daily. It is usually done within an hour and can save thousands in replacements and repairs in the future, not to mentions lives in a major malfunction.

And remember, if you’re not sure what shutter type is best for you, just give us a call and we’ll provide a full consultation and quotation at no cost.
