Direct Drive/Chain Driven

Direct Drive and Chain Driven roller shutters are simple in design and easy to fit to a wide variety of commercial and industrial buildings. Operating on single phase and three phase power supplies, these roller shutters are suited to just about any company and Industrial Door Engineering have supplied them in retail stores, factories, warehouses, storage facilities and more.

Advantages of Direct Drive

Wherever possible, we design, manufacture and install direct drive motor roller shutters for businesses, only using chain driven where this is not achievable. With unsprung barrels in all of the doors we supply, our team endeavour to minimise the number of moving parts in a door, to make it more hardwearing and less likely to break down. The advantages of this are then passed onto the customer who can expect a long-lasting door that has minimal wear and tear and is unlikely to result in unnecessary and costly maintenance. This makes direct drive roller shutter doors well suited to environments where regular door opening cycles are necessary many times per day as they can withstand heavier usage than other door models.


Industrial Door Engineering’s range of direct drive motor roller shutters can be linked up to automated opening and closing systems such as induction loops and wireless control systems, for smoother operation. Automating these doors allows businesses to open and close them at a much faster rate which can help to streamline productivity and boost overall safety as well as reduce heat loss and hopefully reduce heating bills!

Bespoke Options

We understand that businesses want to put their stamp on their installations which is why we offer a choice of finishes and materials, so that our customers can style their direct drive motor roller shutters to their exact tastes. As well as being specially manufactured for your door size, we can offer a choice of lath and colours including:

  • Solid Traditional Scroll Lath
  • Perforated Lath
  • Galvanised Steel
  • Plastisol in a wide range of colours
  • Powder Coated in all BS and RAL colours
