Tube & Link Roller Shutters
Larger tube and link shutters are sometimes used over shops – a single-phase tubular motor typically powers these. However, as most of this style of shutter is used in small areas, a manual method of operation will usually be ideal.
- Shop fronts
The curtain is made from aluminium tubes and links arranged in a brick bond pattern. Our usual mesh size is 230 x 70mm. Internal horizontal rods are manufactured from 8mm diameter round bar and pinned at each end to prevent lateral movement.
The side guides are formed from 38 x 29mm extruded aluminium channels and prepared for fixing to the opening structure. Fixed and intermediate guides 90°, 135°, 180° versions are available.
Manufactured from mild steel to a suitable thickness relative to door size and supplied with angles for fixing to the structure.
Generally galvanized. Any non-galvanized plates are prime painted. Customers can choose to have a powder coating of almost any colour as an additional extra.
Smaller shutters tend to be controlled by 240-volt single-phase tubular motors. Adjustable limit switches are incorporated to stop the shutter at the end of each travel. Standard controls are open/close/stop buttons for geared motors and rocket switches on single-phase motors. A safety break is incorporated in line with current Health and Safety legislation.

Galvanised steel hoods can be supplied to cover the coiled shutter and motor.

Can be Polyester powder coated in a range of standard RAL colours’ for an extra charge.
