- for shutters up to 15kg

     This type of operation is used when the roller shutter is fitted on the outside of the
      property and is lowered/raised using the Swivel Belt Winder from the inside.   The
      grey belt is pulled up and down to lower and raise the shutter.  The swivel winder 
      coils the belt when it is pulled to open the shutter.  The belt is 14mm wide 
and grey 
      in colour and comes with a guide tube to protect the belt through the building wall.  
      The shutter locks by using the locking spring which connects the curtain to the
      barrel and locks out in the back of the shutter box.

      GEARED BELT WINDER - for shutters between 15kg and 25kg

      This is the same as the Swivel Belt Winder but uses a crank handle to raise and lower
      the shutter.  The Geared Winder works at 1:3 ratio with removable handle. 

      The shutter locks by using the locking spring which connects the curtain to the barrel
       and locks out in the back of the shutter box.

       ROD CRANK OPERATION - for shutters up to 25kg

      This type of operation is usually on windows where the shutter is fitted externally and
       is operated internally using a geared rod crank handle which hangs vertically and
      secures into a clip 
when not in use. The shutter is lowered and raised by turning
      the handle in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction.  
The shutter locks by using the
      locking spring 
which connects the curtain to the barrel and locks out in the back of
      the shutter box.



      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 guide 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 on each side.

      ELECTRIC  - mandatory on shutters above 25kg. (N.B. minimum shutter width

      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 allows the shutter to be operated when the power to the shutter has failed.
