Common Issues of Roller Shutters

Whilst they are meant to last for around a decade, badly maintained roller shutters can actually suffer from a range of different problems long before regular ones would do. Here at ABC Industrial we have a high quality repair service in place that covers a wide variety of issues that could strike at any minute. Read on to find out which are the most common…

Power Failure

When you do not have your roller shutters serviced it means that the technology can develop faults and ultimately this can lead to an unexpected power failure. In fact, power failures tend to occur at the most inconvenient time which is why it is always best to contact a professional and have it fixed as soon as possible.

Lack of Oil

In order for roller shutters to run smoothly they are equipped with an oil that lubricates the pieces of metal that touch one another. When this oil is not regularly topped up however the shutters can start to decrease in quality and operate with a reduce efficiency. For example, the shutters may get jammed or start to make a lot of noise when they are in operation.


Even though roller shutters are made to prevent break ins, some vandals will still attempt to get through them which can result in a lot of nasty damage when you greet them the next morning. Unfortunately, severe damage can impact the way that the shutters run which means that a repair service should be organised as soon as possible. Here at ABC Industrial we try our best in order to convey the importance of regular servicing and maintenance to every single owner of roller shutters. After all, without it a shutter is only destined to break down at the most inconvenient time possible. Luckily our emergency call-out service is always on hand to help!
