Built On Shutters

Everybody today is aware how the problems of vandalism and burglary can impact on the community. From ordinary homes to commercial properties and public buildings, everybody is looking for a realistic security solution. Fortunately, the A1S Group has the answer. We have channelled our in depth knowledge and expertise into a range of exclusive aluminium security shutters that deliver exceptional protection – but (and here’s the clever part) are deceptively compact and slim line. So, they can be added on to an existing building without upsetting the general aesthetics – which means even the Architects are happy.

In fact, as this range is ideal for small to medium windows, there’s a growing market for internal applications. That’s how unobtrusive they are to the eye – unlike cheaper and often bulkier alternatives. A1S Groups’ range of built-on shutters are double walled for even greater protection making them the ideal security solution.

Shutter Housing – Constructed from roll formed aluminium in two sections – base and box lid. Box lid is removable for installation and maintenance purposes.

Guide Channel – Constructed from extruded aluminium with an internal box section for strength and installation complete with nylon brush seals for smooth operation.

Shutter Curtain – 38mm or 55mm double skin extruded aluminium non-vented lath with lateral movement contained by nylon ends with a bottom rail and weather seal to suit. Alternatively vented or non-vented foam filled lath can be used (in 38mm lath only).

Electrical Operation – The operation is by one of the following – Single Phase Tubular Motors 240V, Rod Crank or Spring Assisted. All motors are supplied by Ellard, a world leader in shutter automation.

Electrical Optional Extras – Key Switch, Rocker Switch, Keypad, Remote Control, Group Commands.
