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 switch, security key switch or Remote Control. Manual overrides are available on Electric Roller Shutters which allow the shutter to be operated when the power to the shutter has failed.
The RA8 Roller Shutter is available in the following standard colours. Band A, Band and Band C are an additional cost.
