Why choose the Vortex Ultra Compact Security Shutter?
The Vortex Ultra Compact Security Shutter uses a 25% smaller shutter box housing, compared to any Roller Shutter. The very small box measuring just 165mm up to a height of 2.5m!! Before the Vortex Ultra Compact Shutter, the smallest shutter box on a height of 2.5m was 205mm, with the Vortex saving 40mm headroom. This can make a big difference when headroom is limited. The Vortex Ultra Compact Security Shutter is available with Solid or Perforated lath profiles, which can mixed to provide security and vision. Tested up to 6m wide at Wind Class 5, which resists wind speeds up to 114mph. Independently tested by the LPCB to LPS1175 Issue 8 B3 (SR2) - Certified for Installation Internal and Externally. This is a Secured By Design product, which is a Police and Insurance preferred specification. Also available as a not security rated product, where security is not the main concern.
The Vortex Ultra Compact Security Shutter is available Manual Spring and Lock or Electrically operated. It can be operated using a Single Phase Tube Motor, Single or 3 Phase Industrial Motors. Available with numerous control option variants such as group, remote or mobile phone activation.

For smaller openings, you can have Manual Spring and Lock operation. For low usage applications, we can use a single phase tube motor which is neatly fitted inside the shutter barrel.
For larger openings and higher usage Roller Shutters, we use Single (240V) or 3 Phase (415V) Industrial Motors. These motors are designed for medium to high usage.
Where possible we use the Direct Drive motors that are bolted onto the endplates. The Direct Drive motors are Heavier Duty, more reliable and operate quicker. As standard, all Industrial Motors come with a Chain Override and Internal Push Button Station. They come with a 1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty.
We mainly use GFA motors as they are German made, very reliable and easy to maintain. GFA 3 Phase motors are very Heavy Duty, they allow from 10 to 40 operation per hour and they also operate at a high RPM. As standard the motors come with a Chain Override.
We can get a 3 phase motor to suit most requirements, including High Usage and High Speed. All GFA motors come with a 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty.
The X902 roller shutters come as standard with a Push Button Station for internal, non secure operation. There is the option of External Key Switch, Keypads, Remote Control, Presence and Motion Detection for Vehicles/Pedestrians.
We also have a large range of Safety Devices for the industrial doors, depending on the application. Options include Safety Edge, Photo Cells, Light Grilles, Trap Sensors and Lazer Sensors.
