When it comes to investing in high quality roller shutters, you want to make sure they are going to last you for a number of years.

Make sure your roller shutters are regularly serviced
A regular shutter health check can really make all the difference. Small problems can be noticed earlier on - before they develop into bigger and more expensive ones!

Replace old or worn parts
It is almost always a much cheaper option to replace parts of your industrial roller shutters instead of its entire structure and mechanism. Doing this should keep your roller shutters operating smoothly for many years to come.

Keep your eyes open
In our extensive experience, industrial roller shutters do not give way without giving you plenty of warning. By monitoring your shutters, you should be able to identify if any part of the structure is squeaking or groaning – which is when you should contact our team!

Play your part (where possible!)
General good maintenance on a weekly basis can help to extend the life of your industrial roller shutters even further. Take a moment each week to check the sensors around the shutters are clear, and check to remove anything that may have become wedged behind the actual structure itself.

Don’t push your roller shutters
We would never advise you to push your roller shutters - yes, it might not be going down quickly but forcing the mechanism down will just cause more damage in the long run.
