Commercial Roller Shutters

Effective, Efficient & Economical

Protecting your premises is crucial, that’s why commercial roller shutters are the perfect security solution for any shop, school, health centre, office, football stadium or local authority building. Operated via a tubular motor these steel or aluminium roller shutters provide an attractive and robust barrier to your property, which can be completely opaque or give a glimpse inside for potential customers. Our vision shutters and portcullis grilles can offer high visibility, perfect for retail outlets, hospitality venues and bars.

For businesses, the initial cost of installing commercial roller shutters is extremely small when compared with the long-term savings they will make through having a secure building.

What are commercial roller shutter doors?

Commercial roller shutter doors are a vertical rolling shutter door system comprising horizontal laths forming the curtain, side guides, bottom rail, barrel assembly and canopy.Rolling shutters are commonly used as a door to provide a high level of security for all types of properties.

Depending on the specification they are traditionally manufactured from galvanised steel or extruded aluminium. The size (height & width) of the opening/shutter will dictate the size and thickness of the components used. They are classified as a machine under EU legislation and must be serviced and maintained by a capable person regularly.

When specifying a bespoke roller shutter you will have to consider the following:

  • Structural opening width & height dimensions
  • Airflow/vision requirements.
  • Frequency of use.
  • Method of operation.
