Health and Safety Legislation.

Please take note that it is compulsory to make sure that your security roller shutters comply with the Workplace Regulation 1992 Maintenance of Equipment, Devices and Systems. To comply fully with current regulations please make sure that your security roller shutters are inspected at least once per annum. Failure to do so may result in prosecution in the event of an accident.

We are also able to offer a professional routine maintenance contract to service your shutters.

Our standard service includes: check all fixings are secure, check for the smooth operation of the shutter, check for any worn parts and replace with new, the adjustment of up/down limit switches and lubrication of the guide rails and curtain.

We always advise that roller security shutters are serviced at least once per annum, thus greatly reducing the chance of costly breakdowns as well as ensuring your roller security shutters are kept in optimum condition. A faulty or none working shutter can lead to major disruption for businesses. All parts replaced with new are covered under warranty for 1 year.

Typical faults and diagnostics:

Remote Controlled Roller Garage Doors & Security Shutters.

  • The door will not function. Either a power cut or a blown fuse in the plug or the wall mounted control unit.
  • The door will open, but not close. Either the batteries need replacing in the Bottom Slat Transmitter or the Bottom Slat Transmitter needs replacing.
  • The door will open, but not close. The Photocell and/or Reflector are out of alignment, (if fitted).
  • The door struggles to open. Either the door is jamming in the guide rails or the motor needs replacing. Our motors are usually good for +10 years, subject to usage.
  • The door is not running smoothly. Periodically clean the door with a mild detergent and soft sponge. Never use a high powered jet wash. Clean out the guide rails, they will accumulate a build up of grit. Lubricate the key areas with a good quality silicon spray.
  • The door has been hit by a forklift truck. A common and costly mistake! Minimum requirements will be to see if the shutter is still securely fixed. Damaged slats/lathes will need replacing.
  • The door has been closed onto an obstruction. This will normally cause the door to ‘bunch up.’ The door will need to be freed and more than likely the up/down limit switches will need re-setting.
  • The door has become detached from the barrel assembly. An extremely rare scenario and should never happen providing you have a regular maintenance/service contract. New ‘T Springs’ or Curtain Attachments will be required.
