Polycarbonate roller shutters

Polycarbonate is a manmade material that's especially suitable for roller shutters. Like glass, it's transparent, but unlike glass, it's very hard to break.

Extremely strong roller shutters

Polycarbonate roller shutters combine high visibility with exceptional strength.

Our polycarbonate roller shutters are of a special design with reinforced steel rods between the panels. The design and materials make our polycarbonate shutters extremely strong and resistant to forced entry.

Ideal shutters for displaying valuables behind

The combination of high visibility with exceptional strength make our polycarbonate shutters ideal for shops that want to keep valuable goods on display, such as jewellers. Also, these shutters are a good choice for premises that require a higher level of security, for example banks.

2 Types of polycarbonate roller shutters

We offer 2 types of polycarbonate roller shutter: the Facade and the Clearlook. Both are made from the same virtually unbreakable material, but there are differences:

Differences Facade and Clearlook

The Facade roller shutter is made from continuous polycarbonate panels (for shutters wider than 3 metres, panels are linked horizontally with aluminium mullion pieces). Panels nearer the top of the opening are lower, while panels nearer the bottom of the shutter are higher. This difference becomes especially notable on higher openings, where Facade shutters have larger areas of continuous polycarbonate.

The Clearlook curtain is made from smaller, standardised links (360mmW x 85mmH), connected by aluminium tubes. In effect this gives the shutter curtain a more regular look with more frequent visual interruptions.

Ram-raid resistant option available

In addition to our standard polycarbonate roller shutters, we can also supply a ram-raid resistant version. The ram-raid resistant polycarbonate shutter has been tested to withstand the impact of a car driving into it with 30 miles an hour.

Roller shutters with Polycarbonate infill panels

The cutouts on K90 shutters can have polycarbonate glazing for extra protection.

Polycarbonate is a beautiful and very strong material, especially suited for roller shutters. However, it is a more expensive material than steel or aluminium.

If a roller shutter built completely from polycarbonate is not desirable, we also have several shutters with polycarbonate infill panels (glazing).

We supply three types of shutters with polycarbonate glazing:

  • The K90 Aluminium roller shutter - these are lightweight and strong shutters with polycarbonate infilled cut-outs. K90 shutters have large amounts of open space and are perfectly suited for shop fronts.
  • The K25 punched aluminium shutter - this is a shutter with a smaller profile that can have punch outs with polycarbonate infills like the K90. K25 shutters roll up into a smaller box and are especially suited for protecting smaller openings such as office windows and doors, domestic properties and reception areas.
  • FlexiGlide Vision Glass sliding shutters - unlike traditional roller shutters, FlexiGlide grilles slide and fold horizontally. The Vision Glass has large polycarbonate glazed panels for optimum visibility and security. See the Vision Glass page on the FlexiGlide website for more information.
