Description Facade roller shutters

Facade roller shutters are manufactured from clear polycarbonate panels, mounted in aluminium joining rails. This security shutter is suitable for internal and external applications.

Optionally, the polycarbonate panels can be fabricated with a scratch-proof or opal (translucent) finish. When open, the panels are rolled up above the ceiling, leaving the opening completely free. Also suitable for closing off large openings up to 7 metres wide with a single shutter.

The panels have a material thickness of 5 or 6mm. Each panel has a minimum height of 100mm.

Individual polycarbonate panels are made into a shutter curtain by enclosing them in a frame of extruded aluminium joining rails. These rails are attached by hinges to one another and fitted with plastic end clips. Maximum plate length is 3000mm. For wider apertures a H-section mullion with a visible width of 15mm is set between the panels.

The bottom of the curtain consists of a double-walled bottom rail, finished off with a rubber weatherstrip.

High level of security

Facade roller shutters offer a high level of security. Each shutter is made to measure and can be adapted to your individual needs. They are easy to use and to keep clean.

Polycarbonate also has surprisingly good fire-resisting properties, being almost non-flammable and self-extinguishing. The roller mechanism can be concealed above a ceiling.

Facade roller shutter suitability

Facade roller shutters provide the perfect combination of security and visibility. The material and design offer superior resistance to attack, while the clear links provide almost unobstructed visibility.

Facade roller shutters are a superb solution for securing shop fronts and display windows, shopping centres, reception desks, banks, residential windows, terraces, etc.

Panel thickness

Made with 6mm panels, Facade shutters are suitable for commercial application in airports, shopping malls, and retail and 24-hour zones of banks. The lighter 5mm version is made for reception counters, bars and partition walls, or can be used as a transparent closure for a patio, swimming pool or balcony.
