Roller Shutters


Being a one stop shop, we can manufacture, supply and install roller shutters to any premises. It can be possible to provide an online estimate for supplying/supplying and installing roller shutters, although in some circumstances a site visit may be a requirement.

As an option we offer the opportunity to partake in a maintenance agreement for existing/ new installations. The price for this and number of visits required per year varies with factors such the size of the shutter(s), how many, frequency of use, if they are manual/electric etc. Maintenance agreements like these aid in the prevention of future breakdowns in relation to serviceable parts.

Prices for manufacture and install are dependant on geographical location in the United Kingdom.

Roller Shutters

All roller shutters are made from the following components:

  • Lathes (3” wide, galvanised)
  • Track (2” or 4” dependant on size of shutter, steel)
  • Tube (4” x 5”, steel)

The following are the main reasons roller shutters are used:

  • Shop security
  • Garages Door security
  • Warehouses security
  • Home Security

Before gaining an estimate regarding a roller shutter, you need to be aware that there are two types of roller shutter that can be installed: Face fix or reveal fix. This needs to be decided before proceeding with the estimate request, or gaining the measurements of the opening the shutter is to be installed to.

Face fix shutters

Face fix shutters are fitted onto the face of the opening. Mounting the shutter onto the face of an opening is the most typical method for most installation locations. The shutter is fitted above the opening with the guide channels to either side

Reveal fix shutters

Reveal fix shutters are fitted into the opening, with no overlap either side. With this type of shutter, measurements need to be 100% accurate when measuring the opening width and height, otherwise there could be a lot of extra work involved (packing if the shutter is too small or needing to cut brickwork back if the shutter is too large). This type of shutter is commonly used when there is not a face present for the shutter to fix to (e.g. doorways or cabinets).
