What are roller shutters?

At MPS Doors, we understand the significance of these installations for your business’s security. Our expert team provides top-notch service, repairs, and installations, ensuring your industrial doors are in optimal condition.

Roller shutters and industrial doors are highly versatile and are available in various shapes and sizes, making them a fundamental element for any business. These installations not only enhance security but also contribute to the overall functionality of your space. Whether it’s a warehouse in Ipswich, a loading bay in Colchester, or a shop front in Norwich, our services cover East Anglia extensively.

How do roller shutters work?

Roller shutters are made up of horizontal slats or panels that are hinged together to establish a simple, yet effective, opening mechanism. This design allows roller shutters to open and close smoothly as needed. Here’s a more in-depth look at how roller shutters work:

  • Roller Shutter Structure

Roller shutters comprise horizontal slats or panels made from aluminium, steel, or sometimes polycarbonate materials that interlock.

  • Roller Shutter Mechanism

The mechanism used to open and close roller shutters is installed at the top of the opening. This mechanism serves as the point at which the shutter rolls up and down and is usually enclosed within a casing to provide protection and smooth operation.

  • Roller Shutter Operation

Our roller shutters operate remotely using an automated system comprising electric motors. Controls are operated via a switch, or remote control and can even be controlled via a smartphone app!

  • Roller Shutter Tracks

The tracks that roller shutters follow are installed along the sides of the opening and ensure that the roller shutter remains aligned and doesn’t misalign during operation.

  • Roller Shutter Locking Mechanisms

Our roller shutters feature robust locking mechanisms as standard which bolster the security of your property. These locking mechanisms can consist of bolts or bars that engage with the shutter’s tracks, to prevent unauthorised entry when the roller shutters are closed.

Now that you know how roller shutters work, let’s take a look at some of the types of roller shutters that are available for your business. Here at MPS Doors, we offer a range of roller shutters in a variety of specifications and colours for complete customisation.

The 7 Benefits of Roller Shutters For Your Business

As specialists in the service, repair and installation of a wide range of roller shutters across diverse businesses, we have seen the benefits of our roller shutters time and time again. Here are our top 7 benefits of roller shutters for your business…

  1. Enhanced Security

Roller shutters are a robust deterrent against unauthorised access and break-ins, providing peace of mind for many businesses. Our roller shutters are crafted from durable and resilient materials and are optimised for security with robust locking mechanisms. Roller shutters deliver unparalleled protection and security for your assets, inventory and personnel.

  1. Space Efficiency

Roller shutters, especially in garage applications, take up less space as they move straight up when opening, eliminating concerns about items obstructing the door’s path. This differs from other types of entrance doorways and openings such as swinging doors which can reduce the available space you have in your warehouse, storage facility or outlet.

  1. Customisation

Our roller shutters are available in a huge range of colours and styles so that you can align the style of your shutters with your branding and shopfront. Personalise your roller shutters with a choice of powder coating colours, ensuring they not only provide security but also contribute to the visual appeal of your space.

  1. Elevated Durability

Our roller shutters are designed, constructed and installed to withstand the pressure of daily operation, weather conditions, impact and more. This means that you can enjoy elevated durability and longevity with roller shutters that will stand the test of time with minimal repairs, replacements and issues.

  1. Weather Protection

Whether you have a retail outlet, factory or warehouse, roller shutters can prove to be hugely beneficial when it comes to added weather protection. Roller shutters act as a barrier to maintain a comfortable and safe indoor environment. So, from high temperatures and heavy rain to strong wind and more, your premises will remain protected.

  1. Energy Efficient Solution

Did you know that our roller shutters boast excellent insulation properties? In warehouses, factories and retail outlets, controlling temperatures is key. Roller shutters can help you regulate indoor temperatures and establish a comfortable environment whilst reducing your energy consumption and operational costs.

  1. Convenience & Ease of Use

Our roller shutters boast complete convenience and ease of use with remote, automated controls. This makes opening and closing your roller shutters a breeze and streamlines operations with seamless access. This benefit provides security and operational efficiency for your business function.

There are many benefits of roller shutters for your business, ranging from enhanced security and space efficiency to customisation options and energy efficiency.
