Looking to secure high value items within your pallet racking bays?

Security Direct has helped our customers find solutions to this problem.  The biggest problem is the standard pallet racking is not designed to carry the extra weight of a roller shutter door.  A roller shutter to fit a standard 2.7m W x 5m high bay, can weigh anything from 300-400kgs.   A lot of this weight is at the head, when the shutter is in the up position.  The extra weight and forces the shutter creates at the head, could affect the racking structure and loadings. 

The other issue is the vertical legs of a normal pallet racking is only 2/3mm thick.  The steel is not thick enough to get a strong enough fixing for the roller shutter and is not designed to have a roller shutter fixed to it.  These thin legs may also twist whilst the shutter is moving up and down.

The only way to get around these issues is to make a special racking bay out of 100mm x 100mm Box Section, which is designed to carry the extra weight of a roller shutter. 

The most popular product we use on Pallet Racking Solution is the Commercial Metal Shutters.  It is a secure, cost effective roller shutter that can cover large openings,  available with Solid or Vision Slats, available in a range of different motors to suit the required number of uses.   If you need something that provides a high level of security, then we have our Insurance Approved Roller Shutters, which have been independently tested by the Insurance Companies.

      Roller Shutters usually installed mainly over doorways or 
      Serveries are raised up and down by lifting and lowering the 
      curtain by hand.  The roller shutter has a spring in the barrel 
      which helps lifting the shutter.  As standard a central bottom 
      lath lock is provided which has a key in the bottom lath and 
      bolts shoot into the guides rails at each side.  The Bottom 
                          lath lock can be operated from both sides but has a secure
                              and non-secure side to the lock.  Optional bullet locks are 
                              available which are pins that go through the guide rails each side.

      ELECTRIC  - (N.B. minimum shutter width 750mm) 

      Electric shutters are usually fitted on larger openings where 
      Manual Operation is not suitable or where the operator 
      requires an easy, clean and user friendly type of operation.  
      Single phase tubular motors are enclosed within the barrel 
      giving full protection from the elements.  Electric Roller 
      Shutters can be controlled individually or grouped to one 
                              controller.  The controllers available include internal rocker

                              overrides are available on Electric Roller Shutters which

                              shutter has failed.
