    Guides

    The guides form the side channels of the shutter and are what the curtain runs up and down within. During installation they should be securely fixed to the opening using the appropriate screws / bolts. Depending on the size and design of shutter you select they will vary in style and width so if space is limited at each side of the opening make sure you are aware of the width.

    Endplates

    These form the end of the shutter box and serve a number of purposes including holding the barrel, motor and safety brake. They are also used to secure the shutter box to the opening and provide a fixing point for the canopy cover so that it is protected from the weather. Available in aluminium and steel the height and weight of the shutter normally determines the size of the endplates required. This means that some shutter may not be suitable for your installation due to the amount of space they may require above the lintel.

    Shutter Box

    Designed to cover the roller mechanism up from view the shutter box creates a neat appearance, provides protection against the weather and makes it harder for a criminal to tamper with vulnerable components. Usually made up of a top and bottom section they simply screw or rivet to the endplates.

    Motor Limits

    Where an electric roller shutter door is specified the motor will need to be set up so that it knows when it has reached the top and bottom point of the opening. Adjustment is relatively simple and usually comes in the form of push buttons or small grub screws.

    Curtain

    Available in numerous sizes, materials, heights and thicknesses the curtain makes up the bulk of a roller shutter door and is the part that goes up and down. Regardless of the shutter type you need they all work in a similar manner in that each lath interlocks with the next to create a single continuous security barrier. Furthermore, other benefit of this interlocking design is that the curtain can be coiled into the minimum amount of space allowing for thicker insulated doors to require no more room than that of a non insulated version.

    Locking Straps

    In order that the curtain can be connected to the barrel the use of locking straps is required for most roller doors. They work a bit like a human elbow in that the harder they are pushed the more they lock making them a great security feature for any location. The other benefit of this design is that for an electric roller shutter the locking straps remove the need for you to use a key to secure the curtain closed which adds to user convenience.

    Face Fixed

    This refers to the way in which a roller shutter door is fixed to the opening. The term “face fixed” refers to the fact that the shutter is fitted to either the inside (internal face fixed) or outside (external face fixed) face of the opening. The benefit of installing a roller shutter in this manner is that the maximum opening width and height is maintained as the guides overlap the aperture and the shutter box is located above the opening (usually in front of the lintel). However, please be aware that whilst this is the most common method of fitting the shutter some installations may not be suitable for this method of installation. If you are in doubt as to the best position to fit the shutter please speak to us by phone or email prior to placing an order and we will be on hand to offer impartial advice.

    Reveal Fixed

    When there is no side room to allow the guides to overlap the back of the opening may be required to find another fitting solution. The term reveal fixed therefore means that the guides are fitted directly between the opening and the shutter box is located underneath the lintel. The drawback to this is that the existing opening is reduced by the width of 2 x guides and the height by the depth of the shutter box. For large opening this is usually not an issue but if space is already limited fitting a shutter in this manner can make the opening a little too small.

    Manual Release

    In order that an electric roller shutter door can be operated in the event of a power failure the motor can be specified with a manual release. This system works via a manual crank handle allowing the curtain to be wound up and down as necessary.

    Insulated Aluminium

    Where there is a need to provide a degree of thermal and acoustic performance an insulated aluminium shutter is a great choice. Constructed from a double skin or roll formed aluminium with an expanded foam filled core the lath are available in numerous sizes and thickness to suit your individual needs.

    Extruded Aluminium

    Generally constructed from twin walled extruded aluminium lath profile a shutter of this type will offer excellent levels of security whilst remaining relatively aesthetically pleasing in appearance. Available in a variety of specifications they come in a number of sizes and can be powder coated to virtually any RAL colour allowing you to create the perfect match to existing architectural features or company branding.

    Galvanized Steel

    Available in 20 and 22 SWG lath galvanised steel roller shutter doors provide a strong and robust means of securing any space. Constructed from galvanised roll formed steel sections these shutter are perfectly suited to commercial and industrial applications or when powder coated make for a very secure garage door.

    Punched Lath

    Made up using extruded aluminium the punched shutter has sections cut out of each lath to allow for vision, ventilation and light to enter through the curtain. This makes this style the perfect choice for bars, serving hatches, receptions and shop fronts.

    Installation Types

    Thanks to the versatile design of a roller shutter door it is possible to install them in numerous ways so as to best take advantage of the buildings current construction constraints. Take a look at some of the possible installation configurations below to see what is possible.

    General layout of of a continental style roller shutter door that shows most of the critical components

    Internal Face Fixed: This method of fixing the shutter to the opening allows for the maximum opening width and height to be maintained. The guides overlap the back of the opening and the roller box will site above and behind the opening giving a cleaner and neater finish when viewed from the outside of the building.

    External Face Fixed: Generally used where internal headroom would limit the usability of the opening the shutter is fixed to the opening in the same manner as described above only in reverse. This does however mean that the guides and shutter box become visible on the outside of the building so may not be suitable in some applications.

    Reveal Fixed: Shutters fixed between the opening are a good choice where there are no returns on the opening or where the wall is excessively deep. The drawback is that the opening is reduced in size.

    Other Fixing Types: In some instances it may be necessary to install one side of the shutter in a “face fixed” configuration and the other side in a “reveal fixed” configuration. Whilst this is not an issue in itself we do recommend that you contact us for help with sizes if you are unsure of any design aspect of our roller shutter doors.
