The Lowdown on Roller Shutter Servicing

Here at ABC Industrial, we like to stress the necessity of servicing your roller shutters as much as can. After all, mechanical equipment cannot self-regulate its maintenance requirements and this means that they rely on the expertise of a qualified professional to ensure that they are in tip-top condition all year round. Read on as we go over everything you need to know about servicing your roller shutters…


Servicing a roller shutter is an essential requirement of ownership and is also a legal requirement under the Health and Safety Act. After all, it is during these inspections when qualified experts tend to spot the signs of damage and recognise when a particular aspect could use a spot of repair work. In fact, it is important to service your shutters in order to ensure that they are safe for use and that there aren’t any mechanical faults that could put your employees at risk.

What’s Included?

During a servicing, an engineer will conduct a full inspection of the roller shutters in questions; they will be looking at every component in order to ensure that it is in good condition as well as keeping an eye out for any signs of damage that may require immediate repair work to be carried out. Once the inspection is completed, the professional will then decide whether the shutters are in a good enough condition to receive the appropriate paperwork that confirms that a service was carried out.


Many property owners are unaware that servicing their roller shutters is a relatively simple requirement that doesn’t take a lot of time. After all, it only needs to be carried out once a year at a minimum in order to receive the appropriate paperwork to say that the shutters are fit for use under the Health and Safety Act. With this said, it is more than recommended to have your shutters serviced multiple times a year, especially if they are old or you are worried that there may be a maintenance issue. Whether you have realised how much you are neglecting your maintenance responsibilities or have just invested in some brand new roller shutters, the team here at ABC Industrial Doors are the experts to talk to! In fact, our high-quality engineers can assist you every step of the way in order to put a maintenance and servicing contract in place and keep your shutters in tip-top condition 24 hours a day and 7 days a week!
