Aluminium shutters are a great choice for any home or business owners who are looking for a sleek and cost-effective way to protect their property. Available in a range of colours and profiles, and designed with visual appeal in mind, they are a great option to use in places where discretion is key.
Due to their lightweight construction, they are easier to install and cheaper to produce than their steel counterparts, and can often be made to cover smaller openings.
There are 100's of colour options available with additional options such as safety edge sensors, punched/perforated lath, alarmed opening and closing, and fire resistance.
If you need a stylish solution for security or insulation without breaking the bank then look no further than an aluminium roller shutter.

What Applications Are Aluminium Shutters Used In?
You can often find this type of shutter installed in homes and businesses in doorways, windows, and garage doors. They can be insulated with ease, or upgraded to LPS1175 compliant security shutters, making them a versatile and high security option for any application, especially for garage doors. Due to the relatively low melting point of aluminium, this type of shutter is not used in applications where fire resistance is required.

How Do Aluminium Shutters Work?
All roller shutters are controlled either manually (by a spring loaded barrel or hand-chain), or are motor-operated with a single phase or 3 phase electric motor.
Depending on your requirements, some options may be better than others for your application.
For example, if you are using the shutter multiple times per day then a manual operation or 3-phase motor will be recommended to make sure parts aren’t overworked.
If the shutter is the size of an average shop front, and you expect to use it once or twice per day (when opening or closing a business) then a single phase motor will be adequate.

All of our roller shutters are built bespoke to your precise requirements.
During a site survey, our engineers will discuss available options including colours, profiles, operation, and anything else you require.

Aluminium shutters are one of the most popular options for insulated garage doors, due to the light weight of the materials used, they can be supported without the need for heavy duty re-inforcements like steel or timber frameworks.
Perforated and punched finishes are available on non-insulated shutters, which help to enable airflow and visibility into and out of the premises. Shutters like this are them ideal for homes, shops, and other buildings with commercial applications where the free movement of air is necessary. Ask us about the following options:
- Powder coated (any colour desired).
- Flat lath
- Tube and link
Due to the low melting point of aluminium, they are generally not suitable for fire-resistant applications. We do stock a wide range of fire shutters, so please take a look at our page concerning them.
Operation is available through electric motor (tubular or direct drive), or a counter balance spring for manual use. All electrically operated roller shutters can be fitted with any one of a variety of control options such as key switch, push buttons, remote control, keypad, and many more.
