With so many different varieties of roller shutters available on the market these days, there is no such thing as an ordinary, standard-type roller product. This is great for the consumer who is now spoilt for choice, but for people unfamiliar with the shutter industry, it can also cause confusion. By the time they sort through brochures and websites trying to make a decision, they are often not confident that they have made the right choice.
As a company with over 20 years’ experience in this industry, Direct Door Services are well placed to advise clients who are confused about which type of shutter would suit their needs. For example, security may be a priority for some clients, while fire protection may be the most important issue for others. To help them out we offer some information about roller shutters and the various functions they perform.
Need to Keep Sound and Temperature Under Control?
Insulated roller shutters are the perfect product for industrial situations where there are thermal or sound issues that may impact on neighbouring properties. Lightweight yet strong, these shutters use foam of a specified thickness to reduce noise and control temperatures.
Shutters Available for both Light and Heavy Industry
Industrial roller shutters are available in a comprehensive range of sizes, strengths and colours. In light industrial situations such as counters, kiosks, sheds and supermarket entrances, they are an economical and versatile way to protect property from theft and damage. They may not be suitable for heavy industrial applications where large door openings and the constant movement of machinery such as forklifts and mobile cranes require a more robust and secure door system. However, there are roller shutters that are made to suit this challenging environment.
When Protection from Fire is a Priority
There are situations where roller shutters are required to stop a fire spreading from one area to another. In these cases, we can supply fire shutters that are activated from a fire control panel or via a fusible link that will automatically close the shutter when the temperature reaches 72 degrees Celsius. Most of the time they operate like any other normal shutter, but in an emergency situation these other features activate to protect people and property.
Intruders on Alert
Another product from our range is the security roller shutter. With determined property invaders an ever-present threat in our society in both the home and business environment, these specially reinforced shutters are designed to prevent unauthorised entry to premises.
These are just a few of the choices available, so it is not surprising that our clients are grateful for our assistance in helping them decide the best option for their circumstances. Once that decision is made, they can then focus on colours, finishes and other product enhancements. We supply, install, service and repair such a wide range of roller shutters that it is little wonder that they come to Direct Door Services for guidance.
