Crucial Engineering Roller Shutters and Sectional Overhead Doors

Here at Crucial, we understand the importance of security, privacy, and protection for commercial businesses. To help with this, we provide roller shutters and sectional overhead doors. We use galvanised steel and aluminium to engineer our commercial roller shutters and overhead doors to ensure maximum security and durability. We offer customisation to fit any size or shape of door or opening.

Commercial roller shutters and overhead doors offer an added layer of security and protection against not only the elements but also from theft and intruders, making them an ideal solution for businesses that need to safeguard their premises and assets. We pride ourselves in providing our clients with exceptional customer service and high-quality products that are built to last.

About Commercial Roller Shutters and Sectional Overhead Doors

Automated industrial door systems are perfect for warehouses and retail environments. They are mainly used in situations where stock, assets or staff need a higher level of security and protection.

Because of their design and functionality, electric roller shutters and overhead doors can open and close securely, by remote control and add a layer of security that goes beyond that of an ordinary door. Sectional overhead doors can be used in situations where space is more restricted and instead of a roller shutter box, the door slides up side runners which continue onto the ceiling of the warehouse or space. Overhead doors can also be customised with a colour and fitted with vision windows, if desired.

There are many benefits to both types of these automated door systems.

The Benefits of Commercial Roller Shutters and Sectional Overhead Doors

A versatile solution

Commercial roller shutters can be made to fit almost any size and shape of opening. This makes them a versatile option for businesses that have very large or irregularly shaped doors or openings that would be difficult to cover with a traditional door.

Control of visibility

Roller shutters allow businesses to control the amount of visibility from outside into the premises. They can be adjusted to allow partial visibility or complete blockage, depending on the business’s needs. This level of control over visibility can be particularly important for businesses that have valuable items on display, or those that need to protect the privacy of their customers or employees.

Hard wearing durability

At Crucial, we fabricate our roller shutters and overhead doors from the highest-quality materials that can withstand wear and tear over time. They are designed to be strong and durable, which makes them a good choice for businesses that need a long-lasting privacy and security solution.

Superior security

In addition to providing privacy, roller shutters also add an extra layer of security. Galvanised steel and aluminium are very difficult to breech, which discourages and prevents intruders from gaining access to the business premises. The additional security measure of remote control operation provides further peace of mind and protection.

The Strength and Attributes of Automated Industrial Doors

To understand why an automated door system might be the best solution for your business, we can look at how they are constructed. Their materials and the assembly process they go through, ensure exceptional strength and security measures.

Roller Shutters

The Slats

  • Commercial roller shutters are constructed from slats creating strength in numbers.
  • Slats are made from steel or aluminium and are fabricated in various sizes and thicknesses.
  • Links that connect the slats are made of steel or nylon. Slats are punched with holes at regular intervals along the length of the slat. These holes are used to connect the slats with the metal links.
  • Links are also connected to each other, creating a continuous chain of slats, creating further reinforcement.

The Drum

  • The metal drum that the shutter rolls up on is typically made of steel. The drum is usually grooved to allow the shutter to roll up and down smoothly.

The Assembly

  • The slat and link assembly is attached to the metal drum, and the shutter is mounted into a frame. The shutter is then tested to ensure that it operates smoothly, quietly, and safely.

The Finishing

  • Finally, commercial roller shutters are finished with specialist paint or other finish to protect it from the elements and enhance its appearance.

Sectional Overhead Doors

Spring Assembly

  • Installation of a spring assembly helps to counterbalance the weight of the door panels. This allows the door to open and close smoothly and safely.

Weatherstripping and Hardware

  • Weatherstripping is installed around the perimeter of the door to help seal out the elements.
  • Additional hardware such as handles, locks, and brackets are added as necessary.

Testing and Finishing

  • Once fully assembled, the door undergoes a series of tests to ensure that it operates smoothly, safely, and reliably.
  • The door may be finished with a powder coating or other finish to further enhance its protection and appearance.

The Frame and Tracks

  • A frame and tracks are constructed, designed to support the door panels.
  • The frame is usually made of steel or aluminium, tracks are made of galvanized steel.

The Panels

  • The panels are fabricated from steel or aluminium and then cut to the appropriate size and shape.
  • Panels are typically insulated to improve energy efficiency and reduce noise.

Hinges and Rollers

  • Hinges and rollers are attached to each panel, allowing them to slide up and down in the tracks.
