All about roller shutters

Made from fully welded galvanised steel, and lockable at both ends, roller shutter doors offer good protection against theft and vandalism, Use them to replace standard shipping container end doors or have them fitted into the side of the container - or both! They are ideal for easy access and areas where space is at a premium, as there's no need to account for extra ground space with doors that open outwards - they go up, they go down and you're in and out again!

Roller shutter doors can be operated either manually or electrically. For fast and frequent use electric powered doors make more sense, although they come with an extra cost, and it's worth bearing in mind that with electrical parts there's always the chance that repairs may be needed in the future, whereas with manual shutters you're always in the driver's seat. As an extra roller shutters can be powder coated to match the colour of your container.
