What Are Roller Shutter Doors, and Why Do We Need Them?
Roller shutter doors are perfect for protecting the premises, whether residential or commercial. Having a shutter secures the place not only from bad weather but also from theft and vandalism attempts.
A roller shutter door is made from separate horizontal steel and aluminium slats. It works by rolling slats around the barrel up or down with a spring or an electric motor, each side holding the curtain securely in place.
These are the frequently sought-after doors for many domestic, commercial and industrial uses. One of the significant benefits of this door is its vertical functioning and the compactness of the door curtain once fully opened. The use of electric motors for these types of doors is rising since the cost is now almost identical to the manual shutter doors.
Before choosing a rolling shutter door for your space, make sure you have taken the following aspects into account:
- The Security Level You Require
- Airflow or Visibility Needed
- Consideration of Thermal Protection
- Parameters for the Opening
- Aesthetical Features, if Needed
- How Often Will It Be Used
- Mode of Operation
- Finances to Expand
- Headroom Requirement

Components of a Roller Shutter Door
Lath & Curtain
In a roller shutter door, same-length horizontal slabs are firmly attached to each other and riveted to be kept firmly in place, creating a roller shutter curtain.
A steel or aluminium tube fixed at both sides of the end plate, it holds the shutter curtain, letting it roll around when in use.
The roller can be locked in various ways, such as bullet lock, ground lock, or central bottom rail lock.
These u-shaped vertical structures are positioned on the door sides, enabling the curtain to slide up and down safely.
The motor is placed atop the door to power all electrical parts of the shutter.
The safety break keeps the door from falling in case of motor failure.
The canopy encloses the parts of the roller door from above to prevent entrapment and add to the aesthetics.
Different Types and Their Usage
Roller shutters can serve several purposes: They can be made for garages, schools, shops, prisons, kitchens and go-downs.
Have a look at different types of roller shutter doors and their usage:
Insulated Roller Shutters
We recommend these doors in the following cases:
- You require energy conservation in bad weather
- You are suffering from loud noises outside
- You want a high-level security
Businesses using insulated roller shutter doors include garages, go-downs, spray paint booths, storerooms, industrial units, carports, and the like.
Security Roller Shutters
These are sought in the following scenarios:
- Serious risk of theft
- Danger of property damage or vandalism
Security roller shutters drastically extend the duration for a criminal to try and gain access to a building – the reason why they are perfect for warehouses, store rooms, garages, and distribution centres.
Fire-rated Roller Shutters
These shutters work well in:
- Combining fire integrity and heat protection for spaces needing temperature rise rating
- Keeping safe the inside and outside of an opening from inflammable elements
- To limit the spread of fire.
These are most suitable for retail and industrial purposes, particularly in regions used as a mode of escape.
Commercial Roller Shutters
These shutters are opted for when:
- You require a rust-proof material for your doorway
- You experience lousy weather in the area and want a weather-proof shutter
These doors mainly serve commercial and industrial purposes, such as warehouses and shops.
Industrial Roller Shutters
Industrial roller shutters can be a go-to for certain reasons:
- They come in all shapes and sizes
- They give a professional, secure look due to their high-gloss finish
- They come with high-quality designs and can be custom-made
- They can be fitted with additional security systems and locking bolts
- They can be mounted both inside and outside to prevent any unauthorised access
