5 Benefits of Roller Shutter Doors in Bedford

Why do business owners choose roller shutter doors in Bedford? There are three main reasons. First and foremost, security.

Third, roller shutter doors in Bedford offer an adaptable way to protect your property or premises.

Our installations are bespoke, and they unfailingly succeed in protecting goods and property.


How Do Roller Shutter Doors Work?

Roller shutter doors can be operated manually, or electrically. They are made from machined aluminium or galvanised steel and are formed from a number of slats which are assembled to form a ‘curtain’. When the doors are down, this curtain forms a solid and impregnable wall. When it is raised, the slats fold over each other as the curtain raises. All roller shutters are fitted with safety brakes.

5 Benefits of Choosing Roller Shutter Doors

Word-of-mouth drives the majority of our roller shutter doors installations in Bedford. Business owners who have had them installed are delighted with their choice and want to share the good news. Here are the top talking points we hear again and again:

1. You Only Have to Install Them Once

Roller shutter doors are built to an excellent standard and, as a result, they will last for decades so long as they receive regular maintenance. If they’re regularly exposed to the elements they may need new paintwork after a while, but these are doors that are built to withstand a busy industrial setting.

2. They Offer Insulation and Protection

roller shutter door can keep your work place warmer, especially if you choose a fibreglass model. This is especially welcome throughout the colder months. The doors we install withstand everything the British weather can throw at it, so if you have goods that need to be kept dry throughout the year, a roller shutter door offers peace of mind.

3. Roller Shutters Offer Fire Protection

Fire-rated roller shutter doors offer excellent protection against the spread of fire. The shutter system helps to contain the flames, providing employees with the opportunity to evacuate the premises safely. 1st Choice engineers can advise of the specific types of fire-rating appropriate to your premises.

4. Optimum Use of Space

The unique vertical mechanism employed in roller shutters increases the space available for use in your business premises. It also optimises conditions for loading and unloading, as vehicles can be parked right up close to the doors. And if you’re storing goods, there’s no need to leave space around the doors, you can pack right up to the roller shutters.

5. Choose Your Colour Finish

Your roller shutter doors can be powder coated to any RAL colour finish. Powder coating is created by an electrical charge which causes the powder colour to fuse with the surface of steel or aluminium. Not only does it look good, powder coating protects against scratches and chips, and is the most durable colour finish available.
