Why are Roller Shutter Doors in Milton Keynes so Popular?

A roller shutter installation demonstrates to would-be thieves or vandals that you take security seriously. They’re normally constructed from strong, galvanised steel, making them a significant barrier to entry or wilful damage. The material and ribbed construction also strengthens the privacy of your business or home. Once shuttered, it’s impossible for anyone to see inside.

Whilst heightened security tends to be the primary purpose for installation, there are also a number of secondary benefits which are associated with roller shutter doors:

  1. Protection Against Fire: A roller shutter door is effective protection against the spread of fire for up to 4 hours. This means that they can be designated as a certified fire protection door on your property.
  2. Heat Insulation: Metal roller shutters can be a help in maintaining constant temperatures in your business. They keep hot air out in the summer, and maintain warmth inside during the winter.
  3. Noise Insulation: This cuts both ways. If you’re located in a busy city environment, your roller shutter door will keep the noise out. Equally, if your business generates noise, they’ll help to contain it, keeping your neighbours happy.
  4. Long Lasting Protection: Roller shutter doors are precision built to last for decades. They’ll withstand the worst the weather can throw at them, and serve as protection for your business against strong winds and rain.

Roller Shutter Doors in Milton Keynes – Electrical or Manual?

This is really down to the size of the door. For smaller installations, the manual operating system is normally preferable. The door is raised with the aid of a hand chain which drives a fully sprung counter-balanced barrel. This makes the action light and easy to manage. For our smallest installations, the doors can be manually operated without a hand chain.

Where the roller shutter doors are installed in shops, or office buildings we would normally recommend a 240V industrial motor for electric operation. These are operated by key switch, key fob or access control. For industrial premises and warehouses, where tall installations are required, we install industrial motor doors that are operated by push button. Safety brakes are installed as standard on all our doors.
