Extruded AR6 & AR17 Roller Shutters

Ideal for securing schools, sporting pavilions, hospitals, shop fronts, entrances and alcoves, cigarette counters, kiosks, storage areas and shelving and serveries.

The AR6 & AR17 Extruded Aluminium Roller Shutters can span to any size up to four metres in width as a single roller shutter. Unlimited spans can be achieved by permanent or in most instances removable mullions.

Technical Specifications

Is constructed from extruded aluminium slats with a face depth of 40mm x 9mm flat blade (AR6) or a 44mm x 9mm (AR17) curved blade. Both extrusions are a double walled shutter and have a wall thickness of 1.2mm for extra strength and joined by an upper lip which forms a continuous hinge. Each slat (shutter curtain) is fitted with specially moulded end clips, which prevent lateral movement offering a smooth and quiet operation.

Ventilation & Light Control:
Diamond punched extruded slats can be added for extra ventilation and light (AR6 Extruded Profile only) with an option of a clear polycarbonate backing that can be fitted to provide a dust seal.

Side Guides:
Choices of 53mm x 21mm, 62mm x 25mm or 70mm x 22mm extruded aluminium section for Compact German Box installations.

The tracks have a hollow section for concealing fixings.
The tracks are fitted with a nylofelt buffer for a quiet and smooth operation.
The tracks allow a shutter penetration of up to 40mm deep for improved security.

Constructed of a 40mm, 60mm or 70mm galvanised axle or a 60mm aluminium axle.

Bottom Rail:
Is constructed from a 55mm x 7.5mm extruded aluminium section.

Specially designed security springs connect the top slat to the axle. When the security roller shutter has been activated fully in its down position, these clever springs will throw the top of the roller shutter into the back of the pelmet box if someone were to try and lift the shutter from the outside.

25mm x 3mm steel flat bars are housed inside an extruded aluminium section across the entire width of the shutter, anchoring deep into the side guides when activated. The locking mechanism is controlled by a two-way double turn mortice lock that can be positioned at the base of the roller shutter.

Can be used on almost any size security roller shutter opening and recommended on larger openings. Space saving direct drive tubular motors (slide into the axle) can be controlled by a toggle switch, key switch or remote control.

Multiple Roller Shutters can be operated by a single remote control or with a centrally mounted gang switch.

Battery Back Up:
UPS systems are strongly recommended particularly where there is a security roller shutter covering a doorway. These clever battery packs convert 24 volt to 240 volt power in case of power failure and do not enter into sleep mode when power fails, allowing you and your family complete peace of mind.
