PVC Roller Shutter – a flexible locking option
A roller shutter is an easy way to lock openings of rooms, such as garages or halls. Compared to garage doors, roller shutters do not require any space towards the outside when they are opened. This means that these models are above all suitable for walk-through or drive-through openings. The PVC roller shutters can be operated manually or electrically and are therefore suitable for any purpose. Protected by a PVC tarpaulin, these low-weight shutters are easy to clean.
PVC Roller Shutters – Applications of use
In particular in industry, manifold of openings are used to receive loads or prepare products for export. To this end lorries are constantly moving from one place to the next to load or unload goods. But a passage, for example into a cold store or other industrial sections, requires an opening that must also be locked. A PVC roller shutter is therefore a particularly flexible solution. As the name indicates, these roller shutters can simply be rolled up and take up hardly any space. In addition, we offer different types of drives, whether you want to use a crank or prefer an electric motor – there is a solution for all budgets. There is a large variety of dimensions to choose from. You can order customised products from us and you decide about the height and width of the roller shutter. It is also possible to add an extra window at almost any place in the shutter. Apart from industry, these roller shutters are also suitable for private use, for example, instead of a standard garage door.

What is the lifespan of a PVC roller shutter?
Roller shutters bought from us stand out for high quality and are altogether very robust and therefore also durable. However, roller shutters of any type must be handled appropriately and serviced regularly. In general, you can operate these roller shutters for several years before any defects occur. These are mainly due to wear or a broken spring, damaged rollers, rust and possible tears in the PVC tarpaulin. If looked after correctly, these shutters have a lifespan of between 10 to 15 years. It is important to use a special PVC-cleaner when cleaning the shutter so that plasticisers in the material are not damaged. We also recommend that you commission us with installing the roller shutter, if you are not quite sure how to do it yourself. Professionally mounted roller shutters also contribute to a longer lifespan right from the start.

PVC Roller Shutter – FAQ
The following paragraphs list up some of the questions and answers turning around the selection, use and further tips for the PVC Roller Shutters.
How do I operate a PVC Roller Shutter?
Upon ordering a roller shutter from us you can choose, whether you want to operate it by means of a crank or electric motor. There are advantages and disadvantages for both modes. An electrically driven shutter is of course much easier handled. You press a button and the shutter opens and closes again accordingly. This can also be done by remote control and by radio transmission enabling an automatic opening and closing.
This is particularly advantageous for lorries passing through, if many products have to be loaded and unloaded. Manually operated roller shutters benefit from slightly lower prices. They also operate with less noise. In addition, you can operate these roller shutters even in case of a power cut, also requiring less technology. In addition, this also means that these shutters are less prone to damage. It depends primarily on the purpose of use, which type of operation you finally select. We can give you advice beforehand so that you select the correct mode in the end.
What colours are available for PVC roller shutters?
We offer you a range of colours for the roller shutters: white, beige, yellow, orange, red, blue, light blue, green, light green, brown, grey, and black. The selection of colour is a personal choice and has no influence on quality or function. Darker colours block off more light, while lighter colours are translucent. In such a case you can also order a roller shutter in any colour with an additional window.
What can I use a PVC roller shutter for?
Most roller shutters are used in industry but you can also use them at home, for example instead of a standard garage door. It is also possible to use them in the agricultural sector or a butcher’s shop. In principle, these shutters are used in passages to control temperatures, light or prevent soiling. Should you therefore have such a passage, you can install a roller shutter made to size.
What do I have to observe when cleaning a PVC roller shutter?
Generally speaking, a roller shutter does not necessarily have to be cleaned, if it is not heavily soiled. Excessive dirt, however, can not only attack the PVC-tarpaulin but may also penetrate the electronics. If used in industry, it is advisable to clean the inside and outside of roller shutters at regular intervals. It may be sufficient to remove the dust or hose down the tarpaulin with water. Stubborn dirt can be removed from the tarpaulin with a special PVC-cleaner. However, we do recommend to commission a professional cleaning company for cleaning and servicing.
