Standard product features

Track system:

- Top track:

The standard top track from which the shutter is suspended is constructed from two galvanized steel sections 90 mm-deep, bolted together to give a strong smooth running section for the shutter, minimizing friction. Only a small amount of headroom is required for the top track and variable packing is provided to allow adjustment in height during longer term service requirements.

- Bottom track:

The bottom guide pieces are retained within a galvanized steel, special 3 mm-thick bottom track.

Door leaf:

- Construction:

Full height galvanized steel shutter leaves, 305 mm wide by 1.2 mm thick. These are formed into a detail to provide a continuously interlocking weather tight elevation when interconnected by securely capped galvanized hinge strips.

Hardware:

All shutters are supplied with appropriate fixing bolts for the top track, back fixings, locking channel and where applicable for end panel and cantilever brackets.
