Roller shutter doors are ideal for applications where a high degree of security is required, together with consistently good reliability. Roller shutter doors are easily adaptable to suit a variety of different installation details, making this type of door suitable for work in factories, warehouses, workshops, grain stores and other commercial buildings. As the door curtain is made from interlocking slats(as seen below), it can be manufactured to suit any height opening.
With a selection of different reduction gears and counterbalance springs to suit individual door sizes, operation of the rolling shutter door can be provided in any of several ways:
- Self-Coiling: For doors up to 2.5 m high, a push-up type is available allowing operation of the door from either side.
- Manual Hand Chain: An endless hand chain mounted inside provides easy operation for any given door height.
- Gearbox Machanism: A Gearbox and crank handle connected via a drive shaft can be fitted for reliable operation of the door.
- Electric Operation: A selection of motor units, 220 volt or 380 volt, all with limit switch, controls, and a manual override in the event of a power failure.
There are many further options available to increase the size or function of the door, including;
Wicket Gates (Pedestrian door in curtain of shutter door)
These can be fabricated and installed to allow access to building without raising the roller shutter.
Perforations in slats of the door curtain allows smells/gases to pass through, or prevent wind from blowing out the curtain.
Depending upon the operation chosen, lockable slide bolts or a wall-mounted chain keep can be fitted to most doors; both of these locks are suitable to receive padlocks.
