Types and Uses of Roller Shutters

Roller shutters are a popular and effective way of protecting assets against thieves and vandals. As well as creating a strong visual deterrent to would-be criminals, roller shutters can have the added advantage of insulating against heat loss or noise. Many different levels of security are available to suit homes, commercial and industrial premises and shutters come in sizes to fit windows, doors, shopfronts and large warehouse openings. There are special ranges designed for bars and serveries as well as domestic roller shutters.RollerShutter1.jpg

When open, the horizontal slats coil neatly into a discreet box above the opening, so a roller shutter door is a space saving physical security solution. Materials used are steel or extruded aluminium; both can be solid or perforated. There is a choice of single or twin skin – the twin skin generally featuring a foam filled core to provide insulation or fire protection. With features including reinforced bottom rails and auto locks, a security roller shutter door presents a durable barrier that has very few weak points.

Door operation can be manual or electric. With manual, locking is normally by bullet or lath locks. Electrical operation is by rocker switch, key switch or remote control.
