The Secrets to Roller Shutter Longevity

Every property owner should be aware that a roller shutter is considered a big commitment. After all, they can serve a very beneficial security service as long as they are provided with the care they require. Here at ABC Industrial Doors, we want to help our clients get the most out of their investment and that is why we have decided to go over a few top tips that will help them retain that ‘brand-new’ exterior for as long as possible. Read on to find out the secrets to roller shutter longevity...


Although roller shutters are renowned for their low maintenance guarantee, it is important to provide regular check-ups to ensure that they are in tip-top condition. As a recommendation, many business owners tend to have their shutters inspected on an annual basis, however, older shutters may benefit from a more frequent timeframe. After all, these services are in place in order to find and locate minor problems before they get considerably worse.


Whilst it is important to maintain a roller shutter, it is also beneficial to keep it clean too. After all, a build-up of dirt and debris can prevent the shutter from carrying out its main purpose: securing a property against unwanted intruders and the wrath of mother nature. In addition to this, it is also important to avoid using harsh chemicals and abrasive sponges when cleaning a roller shutter as this can damage the exterior.

Speedy Repairs

Time is of the essence where roller shutters are concerned and this means that a fast repair can make all the difference. After all, leaving an issue to fester means that it has more time to develop and a minor problem with a simple solution can quickly turn into an extensive and costly repair job. As a result, repair work should be organised and carried out merely days after the issue is discovered in order to keep a shutter in the best condition for as long as possible. When it comes to roller shutters, there is very little that a property owner can do wrong. After all, they are considered an incredibly low-maintenance security solution which means that they are almost certain to outlast their guaranteed life span as long as they are regularly serviced and repaired.
