Which Roller Shutter Door Is Right For You?

Roller shutter doors offer many benefits to businesses in the industrial and commercial sectors.

Consisting of horizontal slats hinged together that are easily raised and lowered to open and close, respectively, roller shutters offer security, privacy, fire protection, insulation and style. Installing a roller shutter door can improve your premises in more ways than you might realise.

Purchasing a roller shutter door is a big investment for any business, so finding the right one is important. There are several types of roller shutters, each with a number of customisable options, and different variants are better suited for different applications. With so much choice, choosing the right shutter door for your business requires some research.

In this blog post, we’ll explain the different types of roller shutters that we offer here at A&D Doors to help you decide which roller shutter door is right for you.

Industrial & Commercial Roller Shutters

From small doorways and large warehouse entrances to pedestrian and vehicle entrances and exits, industrial roller shutters are perfect for securing any opening on a commercial premise.

Manufactured with high-quality reinforced steel or aluminium, the roller shutters can be operated manually or electronically from inside or outside your premises. They can also be integrated into the building’s brickwork where possible, improving their overall functionality.

Industrial roller shutter doors are especially great for shop fronts as they offer security and deterrence against potential burglary, vandalism and other crimes. Our heavy-duty industrial roller shutters offer even more protection, making them ideal for premises that are left vacant for long periods of time.

Industrial roller shutters are also suited for businesses that need a chilled environment, to keep produce fresh, for example. Due to their raising/lowering mechanics, the doors give you control over how much cool or warm air you let in, making them great at regulating temperature.

The level of privacy that industrial roller shutters offer makes them an ideal option for businesses that operate in a discreet manner, while their soundproofing capabilities are suited for companies that cause a lot of noise while working (your neighbours will thank you!).

Fire Shutters

As their name suggests, fire shutters help to improve the fire safety of your premises. Also manufactured from high-quality steel, fire shutters are very similar to industrial roller shutters but with a few important differences: they have thicker gauge materials; all the component parts are also manufactured from steel, and the shutter doors are connected to your building’s fire alarm system and are activated in the event of a fire or a fire drill.

This makes fire shutters an ideal option if your work carries a fire threat, or your business is looking to improve its health and safety performance and keep your employees and visitors safe. The doors help to compartmentalise fire and prevent it from spreading rapidly throughout the building, giving the people inside more time to evacuate safely.

In the past, you could only fully install fire shutters during the constriction of a new building. But these days, it’s much easier to integrate them with a building’s existing fire system.

Sectional Overhead Doors

If you expect your roller shutter to get high usage, then sectional overhead doors might be your best bet. Thanks to their rigid construction, overhead doors can be operated many times over while maintaining their functionality and efficiency for years to come.

Sectional overhead doors are ideal for busy warehouses and factories, as well as garages and vehicle storage units. Their compact design allows for unrestricted vehicle movement and provides additional space for parking. When open, the doors are stored in the roof space, making them great space-savers.

Security Window Shutters

Window shutters strengthen the security of any warehouse, factory or store. Made from aluminium or PVC, their toughness and robustness make them hard for criminals to break into and safeguard your windows and doors (which are prime targets for burglars and vandals) from destruction. They also provide protection from extreme weather and help to keep your windows and doors clean!

Window shutters’ long list of benefits also includes enhanced privacy, reducing noise from outside and helping to regulate the temperature inside your premises, which will lower your energy costs. Furthermore, their durability means they have a long lifespan with low maintenance involved, making them a cost-effective roller shutter option.
