Roller Shutters FAQs
Choosing roller shutter doors for your premises is a big investment, so here are the answers to some frequently asked questions related to choosing the best shutter for your business.
How Many Types of Shop Front Shutters are There?
There are 2 main types of shop front shutters depending on the way they are operated: electric and manual. Additionally, there are 3 main types of shutters based on their design: brick bond shutters, perforated shutters and solid roller shutters.
You can also categorise shop front shutters based on the material they are made from with steel, aluminium and polycarbonate being the most popular. Why not have a look at our blog on the different types of roller shutters? It has more information about the pros and cons of each of them.
What is the Best Type of Shutter for a Shop?
This would depend on the type of shop you’ve got. Electric shutters are easier to operate, especially if you have a shop front that’s big in size. You might also want to consider how much of the shop you’d like passersby to see out of hours; perforated shop front shutters are great if you want higher visibility, while solid shutters can keep the privacy of your products as passersby can’t see through them.
Are Roller Shutters Worth It?
Yes, shop front shutters provide you with additional security and peace of mind, so they’re a good investment. Not only that, but they also provide additional insulation, so they can help reduce the cost of heating and cooling your premises.
Do Roller Shutter Doors Require A Statutory Inspection?
Yes, roller shutters require a statutory inspection. It is recommended that they are inspected at least once a year, not only to comply with regulations, but also for your safety.
Do Shop Front Shutters Come in Different Colours?
Yes, we know how important branding can be, so our shutters come in different colours. Simply let us know what your requirements are and we’ll work with you to make sure the colour matches the one you’ve got in mind.
How Does A Roller Shutter Door Work?
A roller shutter door operates by rolling up and down along tracks or guides installed on the sides of an opening. This is typically powered by an electric motor, which winds or unwinds the shutter curtain around a drum, allowing for convenient opening and closing while providing security and insulation.
How Do You Maintain Roller Shutter Doors?
To maintain roller shutter doors, regularly inspect and clean the tracks to remove any debris or obstructions that could hinder smooth operation. Lubricate all moving parts such as hinges, rollers, and springs to prevent corrosion and ensure proper functioning. Check for signs of wear and tear, addressing any issues promptly to avoid further damage. Check out our maintenance page for further information.
