Bar Shutters

As you would expect from our extensive stock of materials, we can offer an impressive range of bar shutters ideally suitable for projects such as kiosks, serveries and, of course, bars where vision is sometimes a necessity. Our range of bar roller shutters are extremely appealing on the eye and outclass other systems with their strength and smart appearance.

Unlike most of our competitors, we can offer our bar shutters in small lath profiles thus reducing the shutter box sizes dramatically while still retaining high levels of security.

Our lath profiles consist of sleek thick aluminium in solid, perforated or punched sections. The open lath (perforated/punched) allow vision, light and air filtration. On some profiles we can offer our bar shutters with the added higher security feature of a double-skinned extruded profile and H40s reinforced extruded guide channels.

As an optional extra, the perforated or punched holes can be protected with inserted lexan (glazed) strips for ‘anti-tamper’ maximum security.

All our bar shutters are custom made to our customers’ unique requirements and are available in a polyester powder-coated finish to any of our stocked standard BS or RAL colours.

Operation is by one of the following – Single Phase Tubular Motors 240V, Rod Crank or Spring Assisted.

All motors are supplied by Ellard, a world leader in shutter automation.
