General Info

Our range of Industrial Steel Roller Shutters are used in a diverse range of applications, with a size range from 1.0m wide up to 7.0m wide and 1.8m high to 7.0m high.

Size, Style, Finish and Operation permutations are vast so we are confident we can tailor our product to suit just about any application. We manufacture these products at our main base near Cambridge, where our Sister company has been producing Roller Shutters for some time. There are 20 year old examples of our design still in existence and in everyday use.

All counter-balanced sprung Roller Shutters feature our unique S.M.S. anti drop Safetybrake, the safety product on which our company was originally founded.
