The Tube & Link Shutters are a favourite with retail applications, as it provides 75% vision. The shutter curtain is made up of lots of 8mm rods, 13mm Tubes and Links, which makes it labour intensive to manufacture, which increases the cost and lead times. Due to the way the curtain is constructed, the curtain does flex, so it's not recommended for external use. The standard curtain configuration is "In Line" with 111mm x 69mm spacing. The curtain is available as a Brick Bond configuration which has 222m x 69mm spacing.
The Tube & Link Shutter is only available electrically operated. It can be operated using a Single Phase Tube Motor with a Toggle or Key Switch. For larger openings, we can use a 3 Phase Direct Drive motor with a push button station. Both tubular & outboard motors have numerous control option variants such as group, remote or mobile phone activation
The Tube & Link shutter curtain comes Mill finish as standard and the option of Anodised Silver or Powder Coated at en extra cost. The Box and Guides come as standard in Galvanised finish. The shutter can be Powder Coated any BS or RAL colour to match your colour scheme.
