Chainlink Roller Shutters Coventry University
As part of the complete strip out and reform of a new recreational area and hub café at Coventry University we were privileged to have been chosen to provide the roller shutters for the café area.
It’s unusual for us to see the before and after, because typically our shutters go in before the project is finished and before the finishing touches have been put in place. But on this occasion we were invited back to look at the finished result.
Roller mechanism above ceiling
The shutters operate with electrical motors and roll up onto barrels that sit above the ceiling. They have T-shaped aluminium bottom-bars that close off the gap in the ceiling, leaving only a neat strip visible.
Guiderails at the side of the shutter (to hold the shutter in place) are recessed in the pillars, and so blend in beautifully.
One shutter roller above another
The shutters sit at right angles to each other. And because they are close together we used the space above the ceiling to place one roller above the other.
Work in progress
The photos below show the work in progress. We're on site before the bar is built, installing the roller shutters. Because these shutters are relatively wide and high, we use a scissor lift to move it into place.
The photos also show the situation above the ceiling, with one shutter sitting higher than the other. This allows them to be close to each other at right angles, without the curtains interfering.
