Here at IDE we understand security is paramount. From farm buildings to factories, industrial units to garages, safeguarding your assets and premises is a top priority. In situations where electricity isn’t readily available or practical, Manual Operated Roller Shutter Doors are a versatile and reliable solution. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the benefits of choosing Manual Operated Roller Shutter Doors and explore the types available.

One of the primary advantages of Manual Operated Roller Shutter Doors is their adaptability. These doors come in two distinct types: the Hand Chain Manual Operated Roller Shutter and the Push Up Manual Operated Roller Shutter. The defining feature of these doors is their ability to function without the need for electricity. The Hand Chain Manual Operated Roller Shutter is designed for shutters up to 30m², offering a robust and manual operation system that allows you to control the shutter effortlessly. For smaller spaces up to 4m², the Push Up Manual Operated Roller Shutter offers a convenient solution. These doors are fitted with a sprung barrel that efficiently counterbalances the shutter, making them suitable for various settings, even in remote locations where electrical power may not be accessible.

Security and safety are paramount in any business setting. Manual Operated Roller Shutter Doors are designed to meet these requirements effectively. They are engineered to withstand the harshest conditions, boasting a wind class rating of up to class 5 wind loading, as per BSEN standards. What sets these doors apart is their advanced safety features. The Hand Chain Roller Shutter, for instance, is equipped with a specialised safety brake system. In the unlikely event of the counter-balance springs breaking in the barrel, this safety mechanism engages to prevent the door from dropping, ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations, including the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

Manual Operated Roller Shutter Doors are not just about functionality; they also offer a level of customisation that suits your unique requirements. These doors can be designed to blend seamlessly with your facility. With an extensive range of lath types and colours at your disposal, including Solid traditional scroll lath, perforated lath, galvanised steel roller shutter doors, a vibrant selection of plastisol hues, and powder coated options in various colours, you have the flexibility to craft a customised look for your business premises. This bespoke design and finish not only cater to your aesthetic preferences but also guarantee top-tier security for your establishment.
