Points to note: Cyclone Roller Shutters

Cyclone Rated Roller Shutter:

What's the difference between Cyclone & Domestic Roller Shutter

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.

The Domestic Roller Shutter has no cyclone rating. You can view these difference at


The greenhouse effect and Roller Shutters:

It is a well-known and undisputed fact that external solar protection devices are superior to an internal system with respect to the energy transmission rate and thus to room temperature.

OZRoll Roller Shutters awarded Australian Design Mark:

To our knowledge this is the only window roller shutter product that can make such a claim. Designed and built in Australia to the highest of standards, the OZRoll roller shutter has been recognised by the design and engineering industries as a stand out product.

Storm Protection: storm protection

The roller shutter will offer a physical barrier against driving rain, high winds and flying debris.

Roller shutters are especially effective against hail, protecting the glass from breaking and possible personal injury

Cyclone Rated Roller Shutter:

Australian Standard AS / NZS 1170.2 - 2002

Security: security

Australia's largest home insurer the NRMA reports that 55% of domestic home break-ins are through unprotected windows.

The roller shutter can offer the first line of defence in this situation and has the major advantage of being a visual deterrent.

The roller shutters unique operation and locking device also offer a physical barrier against forced intrusion.

Thermal Insulation: thermal insulation

The slat is rolled to form a hollow casing into which a PU foam is injected, creating an 8.7mm (AR4OO HDF series) thick wall of insulation, similar in style to a cool room.

There is that added insulating qualities of the air gap between the shutter and the window. These functions could provide up to 90% reduction in thermal transfer through the covered window.

Noise Insulation: noise insulation

The insulating qualities of the roller shutter have the additional function of dampening the intrusion of unwanted noise by up to 50%. By creating a barrier in front of the window, the noise flow, which is transferred by vibrations through the air is reduced.



Fire Protection: fire protection

The heat from a bush fire can easily shatter the glass in a window and allow the entry of radiant heat and ashes to the home.

In this case, the roller shutter will offer an effective barrier against radiating heat and airborne ashes.



Light Control:

Dependant on the type of installation and building construction, a roller shutter can offer up to 100% control of the effects of harmful ultra violet and infra-red rays. The shutter has the added function of perforations along the slat hinge that can be adjusted to diffuse the suns rays, while allowing light into the room.
