ROLLING SHUTTER DOORS
Available from Avon Doors
Strong, versatile and very adaptable, rolling shutter doors are without doubt the most popular type of door.
Different fixing arrangements allow rolling shutters to be installed in many ways. The weight of the door is carried on side piers, with no special steel or lintel required. Installation is quick and easy.
When in position, the small amount of space occupied is well away from any vehicles. When a repair is necessary, the interlocking curtain sections enable remedial work to be carried out quickly and economically.
These rolling shutter doors are built to withstand the toughest conditions, giving the user the reliability he needs whilst retaining ease of operation.
The best materials are used, the highest standards of quality are maintained, and through continual development and research we have engineered our rolling shutter without sacrificing specification, so that this door offers value unequalled by any other.
Rolling shutter doors are ideal for application where a high degree of security is required, together with consistently good reliability. Rolling shutter doors are easily adaptable to suit a variety of different installation details, making this type of door suitable for both new construction work and refurbishment work in factories, warehouses, workshops and other commercial buildings.
Shutter curtain: Galvanised steel or “Plastisol” colour coated, interlocking lathes in a traditional 75mm-deep design, facilitating easy and economical replacement.
Counterbalance: helically wound torsion spring in a steel tube and roller assembly, mounted on special long-life bearings.
Guide Assembly: Formed galvanised steel material, with a sufficient depth to provide adequate wind loading. Wind anchors & guides are supplied as standard on all doors over 3.8m wide.
Bottom Member: Produced from a cold rolled section in all galvanised material.
With a selection of different reduction gears and counterbalance springs to suit individual door sizes, operation of the rolling shutter door can be provided in any of several ways:
- Self-coiling: For doors up to 8 sq.m (max height 2.8m); a push-up type door is available allowing operation of the door from either side
- Manual Hand Chain: An endless hand chain mounted inside provides easy operation for any given door height.
- Electric Operation: A selection of motor units, single or three phase, all with limit switches and controls, providing “fingertip” operation and producing the best results in the way of saving energy by allowing easy and faster closing of the door; a manual override is available in the event of failure.
Depending upon the operation chosen, lockable shoot bolts or wall-mounted chain keep; both suitable to receive padlocks. Additionally, guide locks and ground bolts are available.
With rolling shutter doors there are several optional items available. These include wicket door assemblies or emergency exit doors; coil casings for the roller assembly; draught excluders; fascia panels.
As standard, rolling shutter doors are supplied with all exposed surfaces in galvanised material.
Alternatively, the shutter curtain can be supplied in a long life “Plastisol” Colourcoat material to enable matching or contrasting of a colour scheme.
For the full range of colours, see ‘Colour Chart’ , alternatively a Powder coat finsh option is also available in any standard RAL classic colour.
