A Guide to Roller Shutter Finishes

When it comes to protecting your business, home, school, or property, you want to be sure that the features you have in place will secure the building in your absence. Roller shutters can offer the highest security, giving you peace of mind that your property has the best defence against potential thieves and vandalism when unattended.

Shutter doors can also offer privacy to the interior of the building, keeping out of sight any valuables which may tempt opportunists. If passers-by have no idea what inventory is within, they will be less likely to want to break in. They are also straightforward to install. They can be done as part of your building renovations or retrospectively, making the perfect security for your business.

A roller shutter also provides fire and environmental protection. With heavy-duty roller shutters, you can offer up to 4 hours of fire containment. With the likes of insulated roller shutters, you can keep in the heat, making your building much more energy efficient and reducing energy bills and offering staff inside better working conditions.

Finally, roller shutters can provide a stylish exterior to your building. With the various finishes, your facility can maintain an immensely proud curbside appeal, boosting the appearance and confidence in your building.

Galvanised Roller Shutter Doors

If you are looking for the perfect roller shutter for your business, you can’t go wrong with a galvanised roller shutter. This finish is designed for industrial, commercial, and public sectors and can offer manual or electrical operations.

Galvanised steel roller shutters are a popular choice for many properties. Galvanisation is the process of coating the material with zinc to offer added protection which can lengthen the life of your metal, such as iron or steel. The additional zinc coating offers weather resistance, preventing rust and making them a long-term investment for the security of any property.

Powder Coated Roller Shutters

If you want to personalise your secure roller shutter installation, you can choose a powder-coated roller shutter. As a specialist in delivering commercial roller shutters in London for almost 40 years, we can offer you a colour powder coating of your choice. Whether you wish to customise it to blend seamlessly into the exterior of your building or wish to match it to the branding of your company, we can provide high-quality and durable coatings.

By choosing the colour of your roller shutter, you can help make your business stand out from the crowd. A roller shutter is often the representation of your business when you are absent from the property, so matching your branding can help potential customers who pass by identify your company. Alternatively, choosing a bold and bright powder coating can boost your presence in the local area. Bold colours are known for grabbing viewers’ attention, so choosing this for your roller shutter could help increase footfall into your company, creating more leads and boosting sales.

Anodised Aluminium Roller Shutters

Anodised aluminium has been treated to develop an exceptionally durable finish and is another popular choice for many businesses. Creating anodised aluminium requires using an electrochemical process where the metal is immersed in a series of tanks, wherein one of the tanks, the anodic layer, is produced from the metal.

This treatment increases the durability of the metal and creates a surface up to three times stronger than raw aluminium. Due to the surface strength being made from the metal, it will not flake, chip, or peel away and can offer a shiny or matt finish to suit your preference.

In addition, even though aluminium is already a lightweight material, the process of anodising the metal increases this material’s characteristics without losing the finished product’s dexterity. Anodised aluminium roller shutters are ideal for windows but can also be used for doors and much more to protect your business.

Stainless Steel Roller Shutters

Stainless steel is a metal that offers an aesthetically pleasing finish whilst being one of the stronger metals for roller shutters. This metal is incredibly versatile, with many appealing characteristics for various applications.

Stainless steel offers superior weather-resistant properties, minimising the rust that will occur when applied outdoors. However, it also can provide significant benefits in interior applications due to the clinal ability to withstand constant cleaning without deteriorating, making them perfect for medicinal storage units in hospitals, chemists, and doctors’ surgeries.

Still, due to the appearance and strength of this metal, it works exceptionally well for the exterior of any business. The shine from this finish offers a sleek and modern appearance and is used to heighten the sophisticated appearance of a business.
