Category Roller Shutter Doors

Roller shutter doors are an excellent investment for many reasons. The security that the roller doors bring to your property is the obvious advantage through the fact that the security shutters deter people from even targeting your property is often not considered.

High quality security shutters are manufactured from aluminium and often combine many aluminium foam filled slats that hook together. This allows the shutter to roll into a very tight roll keeping any casing minimal. Being the shutters are made from strong aluminium you can be assured that they will remain rust free and last for many years.

Roller shutter doors are generally installed on the outside of a property. When  the shutters are rolled up the roller casings are so small and unobtrusive that they are hardly visible and you would not even know there were there. When roller shutter doors are in use they offer an almost impenetrable barrier over your windows and doors. This offers superior protection for you windows and business.

Roller shutter doors can be operated manually or electrically with remote controls. Manual override handles can be added to allow you to crank the security shutters open in case of a power failure. With the press of one button your business can be instantly secured.
