Three Examples of Roller Shutter Emergencies

There is nothing worse than walking up to your property on a chilly November morning only to discover that you can’t seem to get your security roller shutter to work. After all, an entire days income is suddenly at stake! Luckily, that’s where the team here at ABC Industrial come in; our emergency call out service works tirelessly in order to ensure that you can get back to business as usual in no time. Read on as we go through three different types of roller shutter emergencies…


As the most common cause of roller shutter damage, vandalism is usually caused by youths looking to wreak havoc or lawbreakers trying to gain unauthorised access to a property. Regardless of whether the criminals were successful or not, a vandalised roller shutter puts your business at more risk which is why it is often considered an emergency, especially if the locks have been damaged and you can no longer secure your property overnight.


Whether you are opening up for business or closing shop at the end of the day, your roller shutters are an important part of security. Unfortunately, general wear and tear or maintenance neglect can cause the mechanisms that open and close your roller shutter to become jammed during, leaving you in a predicament. After all, if it occurs at the start of the day then you cannot open for business but if it occurs in the evening, you risk leaving your property vulnerable to damage and burglary overnight. This means that a jammed roller shutter is considered an emergency.

Faulty Motor

Roller shutters are not the first things to become automatic. After all, it can be an incredibly beneficial system in shopping centres in order to open and close multiple shutters at the same time with the click of a button. Unfortunately, a faulty motor can cause your roller shutter to stop working all together and this can put your business at risk. Since a motor is a complex component in a roller shutter, it is considered an emergency. From security roller shutters on shop fronts to servery fire shutters in school kitchens, the ABC team are prepared to drop everything and help you with your emergency in a flash! In fact, we strive for nothing more than excellence which is why every engineer is provided with the necessary training and experience in order to ensure that the job is completed to 100% satisfaction.
