Description Armourshield roller grilles

The Armourshield is a continental style roller grille that is back in demand. The tough steel rods make it a secure barrier, whilst maintaining a great sense of openness.

The combination of high security and maximum amount of open space make this grille ideal for shop fronts (preferred by most local authorities). Ideally, the grille is placed behind glazing, where it forms a double barrier with the glass. An external fit is not recommended for high risk areas.

At bars, serveries and reception counters, the Armourshield creates an attractive and securely locked barrier with maximum visibility.

The Armourshield roller grille is available in two thicknesses: standard 6mm steel or 8mm steel for higher levels of security.

Alternative grille styles

Armourshield security grilles can be made in 4 different styles, creating different patterns and levels of security.

Styles A and B use the same materials, but style A has smaller apertures, which makes it more suitable for bars, serveries and receptions.

Armourshield Roller Grille Style A Armourshield Style A - standard shell Armourshield Roller Grille Style B Armourshield Style B - standard ring

Style C includes a solid bar within the rings. This reduces the aperture size and increases the strength and security.

Armourshield Roller Grille Style C Armourshield Style C - ring with intermediate reinforcing

Style D adds an additional solid steel bar between the rings to give the maximum security rating.

Armourshield Roller Grille Style D Armourshield Style D - ring with full reinforcing

All these styles are available with either 6mm or 8mm solid steel bars.
