Roller Shutter doors have many applications in industrial or commercial premises and there are many varieties of Roller Shutter doors suitable for different environments and usage.
Some of the advantages of Roller Shutter doors include:
However, choosing the right Roller Shutter doors for your premises is dependent on a number of factors.
As Roller Shutters require some space above the door space, for the roller barrel box, the amount of space available in this area will determine if the doors are fixed inside or outside the building.
Also, some space will be required on either side of the opening to accommodate the side piers (that the roller door runs in) and the motor (for electrical operation) or chain (for manual operation).
For electrically operated doors, either a 3 phase or single phase electrical supply will need to be available.
The size of the door and its weight will determine if a manual or electrical operation is required.
The structure around the door opening must be sufficiently sound and robust enough to support the weight of the doors.
Doors can be constructed from galvanised Steel or extruded Aluminium, and come in either insulated or non-insulated forms. Powder coating is also available, enabling you to match the colour of the doors to your existing building facias.
