Processes in Getting a Roller Shutter

Roller shutters are excellent to add to your home or business building because of the security and the convenience they offer. Normally, roller shutters are not installed in a do-it-yourself (DIY) manner, especially if there are automations and other advanced features that are requested by the client. Here are the key processes you need to know when getting a roller shutter installed in your property.

Selection and Quote

Before anything else, you have to decide on what type of shutter door you want. You may want some features added to your garage door or you may just need a simple roller shutter that will be easy to operate when you are about to park your car. Perhaps, you want a door that will be connected to your fire alarm or theft alarm system. Roller shutters are built for the security of the property and the items inside, so you should be well aware of choices available to you.

Once you have chosen a design, the roller shutter specialist will then provide you with a quote for the type of roller shutter you want. You can discuss with the company if there are any budget limitations so that they can provide you with the best possible solution for your home or business.

Getting the Dimensions

After you have decided what type of roller shutter you want to install in your property, someone from the company will come to your home to do measurements. The location for the proposed roller shutter will be measured to get the precise dimensions to work with. Precision is important in building a highly efficient roller shutter.

Building the Shutter Door

Although the roller shutter builder works with roller shutter suppliers, they will be building the actual doors for you, based on the specifications and features that you requested. There may be customisations that will have to be made to build the shutter door you want. The building process should be meticulous, precise and thorough to ensure that the roller shutter will function as expected.


The final step is the installation of the roller shutter. Using the dimensions obtained, the specialists will then be able to precisely place the roller door into position. A skilled expert or electrician may be needed during the installation process if there are automation, motorisation and logic control systems needed for the shutter door.

Installing a roller shutter in your property involves a lot of precision work and expertise. These are essential in making sure that the security features are of high quality. If you are interested in putting a roller shutter in your building, please call 3802 2999.
