Cyclone Rating

In Australia we have specific Australian Standards that govern the testing procedures and product requirements for any product to be classified as "Cyclone Rated". OZ Roll is pleased to advise that the testing is complete and the Super Shutter has been approved for "Cyclone Rating" The shape of the profile has been designed specifically for increased strength and security for high wind or high-risk applications.. The curved shape of the slat provides minimal roll sizes and optimal lateral strength. It's down falls are Price, and no Bush Fire Rating. For this reason the domestic roller shutter is still the most popular roller shutter on the market.

The Box Locking System

Box Locking System.jpg

This system uses the top of the head box and the spring connector to stop the shutter curtain from being lifted. The curtain forms a vertical wall that can only be lifted as far as the top of the head box
As shown in the picture.

  The gap at the top is determined by the height of the shutter. We can only work in multiples of one full slat, and therefore the gap should never be greater than the size of one slat.



The Slat Locking System

Slat Locking System.jpg
This system uses the same principle as the Box Lock System, and is used with the 180mm and the 205mm head boxes.

  In this system we place two small pieces of slat in the box to simulate the top of the box. The main advantage of this system is that the pieces of slat can be moved to reduce the gap at the top of the curtain. As shown in the picture.

Large window

The best solution for a large window spanning up to 4200mm, is to use a Commercial Roller shutter which incorporates a 55mm curved foam filled slat nominal thickness: 13.6mm profile with 76 mm x 28 mm heavy duty guide and bottom bar. This is a double walled cavity, curved 55mm profile with PU foam injected during the roll forming process. This process provides economical strength and the insulation qualities while maintaining exceptional performance of the slat. The curved shape of the slat provides minimal roll sizes and optimal lateral strength.

Can Roller shutters Operate on an Angle?

No, roller shutters need the weight of the curtain to fully close and for the curtain to move freely down the guides. If the curtain doesn't move freely the curtain will unwind in the head box.
