Aluminium Roller Shutters are mostly made from high tensile, powder-coated aluminium slats or mesh and can be used for both internal and external, residential or commercial use. The powder-coating allows for a wide range of colours that can add a stunning feature to your home's facade.
Aluminium Roller Shutters can be custom-made to suit your specific needs but are generally made in roller style as in garage doors, sheds, warehouses, vehicles, schools, canteens and prisons. They are energy efficient too by preventing heat from escaping in winter and preventing the heat from penetrating your windows in summer. Aluminium Roller Shutters also offer varying degrees of light control by reducing sunlight, glare, street lights and car headlights which is ideal for shift works or baby's nursery.
The most common use for Aluminium Roller Shutters are for home security and privacy offering a visual deterrent and physical barrier to unwanted intruders but are also used in commercial buildings such as warehouses and factories.
Traditionally, Aluminium Roller Shutter blades where held together by a control bar that was screwed in at either end which allowed for easy intrusion by simply unscrewing each blade but since have been made even stronger for added protection by using lockable blades, double shoot bolts and internal mechanisms with no control bar or visible screws making it not only safer but offering a cleaner and aesthetic finish to the look of your exterior while also allowing control of light and air circulation throughout.
These shutters can be operated manually or automatically using an electric motor fitted within the roller. Manual operation can be as simple as lifting up or pulling down the Aluminium Roller Shutter or chain. In an automatic operation, it can be by pressing a button or switch manually or remotely. The components of an Aluminium Roller Shutter consists of a lath, roller, shutter box, shutter spring, guide rail and bottom lath.
