Commercial or Domestic Roller Shutter
The difference between the Domestic Roller Shutter and the Commercial Roller Shutter.
The commercial rollershutter can span up to 4200mm for large windows in a single span. The shape of the commercial rollershutter slat profile has been designed specifically to suit the Commercial roller shutter market along with many Domestic applications. The German built roll forming machine is the most advanced of its type in Australia today. The AR551 series slat is a double walled cavity, curved 55mm profile with PU foam injected during the roll forming process it's. Nominal Thickness: 11.6mm This process provides economical strength and insulation qualities. The curved shape of the slat provides minimal roll sizes and optimal lateral strength. It's down falls are Price, and no Bush Fire Rating. For this reason the domestic rollershutter is still the most popular rollershutter on the market.

Electric or Battery
The electric rollershutter has a quieter and smoother operating system than the battery roller shutter.
The installation of an electric roller shutter is a very simple process, compared to the difficulty of fitting a battery rollershutter
When your electric Rollershutter has been installed there is no ongoing maintenance or costs. Battery roller shutters require recharging every month and a new replacement battery controllers costs $125.00 each.
The down side to standard electric Rollershutters is that they will not work if the power goes out, unless upgraded.
The standard Somfy electric motor can be upgraded and supplied with a manual override system, which uses a crank handle to raise or lower the curtain when the power is out.
Upgrade is $220
The SOMFY electric motor comes with a 5 year warranty.
Battery Operated Rollershutters
No electrician required, will open and close your average size Rollershutters about 20 times before recharging, the battery controller should be good for 3-5 years. Replacement Controllers are $125.00 each.
Battery Rollershutter will works when the power is out.
The Box Locking System
This system uses the top of the head box and the spring connector to stop the shutter curtain from being lifted.
The curtain forms a vertical wall that can only be lifted as far as the top of the head box
As shown in the picture.
The gap at the top is determined by the height of the shutter. We can only work in multiples of one full slat, and therefore the gap should never be greater than the size of one slat.
The Slat Locking System
This system uses the same principle as the Box Lock System.
In this system we place two small pieces of slat in the box to simulate the top of the box.
The main advantage of this system is that the pieces of slat can be moved to reduce the gap at the top of the curtain.
As shown in the picture.

Can Rollershutters Operate on an Angle?
No, rollershutters need the weight of the curtain to fully close and for the curtain to move freely down the guides. If the curtain doesn't move freely the curtain will unwind in the head box.
