5 Reasons Why You Need a Roller Shutter

Many people often overlook the benefits that roller shutters can provide because at first glance they appear to be an eyesore. After all, they are large pieces of metal that cover the exterior of windows and doors. With this said however, roller shutters have so much to give that it is impossible to go over them all which is why we’ve briefly listed 5 reasons why every industrial building needs a roller shutter…


In businesses where temperature regulation is essential, roller shutters can be a lifesaver. This is because they are very good at maintaining an area and ensuring that cold air or hot air is not able to infiltrate for too long that it may disrupt whatever constant temperature is required.


Whilst some people will still make an attempt, it is pretty much impossible to break through roller shutters without high grade machinery. This makes them incredibly secure and can even prevent break-ins and vandalism from occurring.

Fire Protection

Some roller shutters, known as fire shutters, are equipped in order help compartmentalise a building in the event of a fire. Not only is this helpful to prevent a fire from spreading, it can give the people trapped inside an all important 30 extra minutes to escape.


Roller shutters have a bad reputation for being dull, grey and boring however there are actually a range of different designs available in order to add a splash of elegance to your property. In addition to this, you can also choose from automatic or manual shutters depending on your needs so you never have to settle for something unsuitable.


Whilst they can be a costly measure to take, well maintained roller shutters can last for over a decade when they are given the necessary maintenance and care. If the upfront cost is looked at as an investment, roller shutters certainly pay for themselves in terms of quality, benefits and longevity. Here at ABC Industrial Doors we understand that roller shutters are perhaps not the most exciting thing to talk about. With this said, it is important that all warehouse and factory owners understand the benefits they can offer. After all, we believe they are an essential addition to any property.
