Rolling Shutters 101

  1. How do they work? — A curtain of extruded aluminum slats “roll” off of an overhead axle, down a set of tracks, and stack on top of each other to form a rigid barrier against flying debris.  When not in use the slats “roll” back onto the axle where they are concealed by the aluminum hood.
  2. Control Options — Rolling shutters can be deployed by several different methods.  Manual operation utilizes a crank handle that temporarily attaches to the  shutter unit engaging a gear that will move the slats up and down.  Basic motorization uses an electric motor that is operated by an interior switch that will quickly move the shutter up or down.  With advanced motorization the sky is the limit and offers many remote control options for shutter motor control.  Use a handheld remote, your smartphone, or integrate them into your automation system.  Manual override is available for most motors to operate the shutter if power is lost.
  3. Slat Types — Rolling shutter slats come in different sizes measured in millimeters of height.  A 44mm slat is 44mm tall and offers TDI approved protection up to 144″ wide.  By comparison the 56mm slat is 55mm tall and offers TDI approved protection for openings up to 288″.  Bigger isn’t always better, the 44mm slats can fit into hoods as small as 7″ when space is an issue.
  4. Colors — All parts are powder coated for long lasting beauty.  There are 4 standard colors available: white, bronze, cream, and beige.  Other colors are available by special order.
