What methods of operation are available?
The range of roller doors and security shutters for sale within this website are available in a choice of manual and electric operation to suit user requirements. The options available will vary depending on the shutter or door design you have chosen and the size you require however most models will be available with the following options.
Whilst the type of motor will vary depending on the design of shutter and size of opening the method of operation will remain pretty much the same throughout our range. Options available include the following.
In addition to these options being available for single shutter installations, we are also able to offer a variety of solutions for multiple installations that need to be operated using a single control unit. In these instances we normally recommend the use of a group controller. Should this apply to your installation please contact us to discuss further.
What is the advantage of automation?
In situations where the shutter is to be used on a regular basis or there are a number of them in place to secure the complete building we recommend the use of automation as this will save time opening and closing them.
What range does the remote control operate the shutter from?
This will depend on several factors including the strength of the battery and signal. As a general rule of thumb the remote can operate the shutters from around 25 metres away however we always recommend you only operate the shutter or garage door when a clear line of sight is available.
Do i need to lock an automatic security shutter?
Unlike a manual shutter that needs to be mechanically locked after each closing cycle, electric shutters will lock automatically every time. As the curtain descends, the locking straps engage to hold it in the fully closed position.
Can the doors be operated in the event of a power failure?
Where required, electric shutters can be fitted with a manual override system to allow operation by hand in the event of a power failure. To operate this system you simply attach a crank handle to the motor and turn in the relevant direction for opening and closing.
Please note that shutters mounted on the outside of the building will need to specify a lockable override cover to prevent anyone tampering with it who is not authorised to do so.
