Heathrow Airport Roller Shutter for Easirent Car Rental
Heathrow Airport is on a continuous journey of improvements and upgrades to their facilities. Security is a one aspect of these improvements, and HVP have been assisting with security roller shutters on and around the airport premises.
Our shutter engineers regularly work at airports throughout the UK and have the necessary skill, experience, and equipment to provide applicable airside works in accordance with good industry practice.
Roller shutter to office and car storage outbuilding
On this occasion we were asked to install one of our Screenguard Roller Shutters at Easirent Car Rental. The shutter was being installed on the opening of an outbuilding that had been refurbished into an office and car storage area for their car rental service. To match the existing wall, the roller shutter was powder coated in Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016).
Custom made bottom rail for uneven floor
All our roller shutters are made to measure, because every project is unique. In this case the floor was uneven (at a very light slope, a fairly common occurance), which meant that a standard bottom rail would not fully close off the gap between the shutter and the floor. Therefore we fitted a bottom wedge to ensure a closing fit and a safe and efficient operation of the shutter.

The close-up below shows the bottom-rail wedge in more detail. This was a custom-made solution, and an example of how we always work with our clients to come to the best possible approach for their project.
