WHY DO I NEED WIND RESISTANT SHUTTERS?

Recent storms in the UK have highlighted the need for sturdy, wind resistant roller shutters. As the perfect solution for high wind, these are suitable for use in commercial, industrial and domestic applications. These shutters can prevent damage by withstanding gale-force winds up to 100mph.

All of our roller shutters are:

  • Secure and made to measure
  • Complaint with health and safety standards
  • Manufactures from high-quality materials

These shutters are also well suited for aircraft hangers as they act well to offer protection from the high wind speed generated by helicopters. These shutters minimise rattle with their wind lock end caps, reducing noise and adding security by protecting the sides of the lath.

Our products & models

Our wind-resistant shutters will not only protect your property from gale-force winds and constant rattling during periods of high wind, but they will also provide extra security protection.

WIND RESISTANT ROLLER SHUTTERS

In environments where wind is a constant issue or even in situations where ‘intermittent buffering’ is a concern, we offer a solution in the form of our wind resistant / wind lock shutter doors, suitable for use in domestic, commercial or industrial situations.
Our wind resistant roller shutter doors can prevent damage by withstanding gale force winds of up to 100mph. In addition to the security and wind resistant features, the ‘wind lock end caps’ help eliminate rattle, minimising annoying noise – and have the added benefit of enhancing security by protecting the sides of the lath.

Although primarily designed to protect an area against high winds, these shutters are also useful for air hangers, where they can offer protection from the gusts generated by helicopters.
As with all of our shutters, a wide range of finishes and sizes are available.

  • Airport terminals.
  • Coastal apertures.
  • Smaller wind resistance shutters can be used in a domestic context for protecting windows during breezy periods against soaring sticks, pebbles, or other debris.
  • Any areas where there is a risk of high winds.

CURTAIN

As our wind-resistant shutters are made to order in a range of different resistances based on your needs, the curtain may be manufactured in a number of different ways and using a number of different materials. However, in a general sense, a dense insulating material to provide weight and thermal insulation fill each lath, which is then connected to another lath using a secure and “minimum movement”, continually interlocking system.

GUIDES

Vertical guides are formed from rolled steel into a double rebate and are fitted with twin full-height brush seals which help to keep the wind out.

END PLATES

Mild steel of appropriate thickness in relation to door thickness is prime painted and supplied with angles for fixing to the structure.

BARREL

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 end plates.

FINISH

Comes galvanised with non-galvanised parts prime painted as standard. Customers can choose to have a powder coating of almost any colour as an additional extra.

OPERATION

Depending on size, the shutter will be operated by a single-phase, or 3-phase motor.
