Steel shutters are used to help prevent unauthorized access and vandalism to premises by adding an extra barrier between “outside” and whatever entrances they may be protecting. When open, the shutters provide an almost unobstructed aperture as the shutter and mechanism store above the doorway and out of the way. Furthermore, the doors are tough and have a long life with little maintenance required.

Vertical guides are formed from rolled steel or fabricated dependent on size and are supplied with appropriate angles for fixing to the structure.
Mild steel of appropriate thickness in relation to door thickness is prime painted and supplied with angles for fixing to he structure.
Our barrels are normally made from a seamless steel tube of adequate diameter to counteract deflection and hold in bearings or cups attached to the endplates.
