Seceuroshield - 3800 extruded aluminium shutter

The SeceuroShield 38 extruded aluminium slat is a security shutter for higher security domestic use and medium security for commercial, retail and counter/cabinet applications. It is available as a built on or built in shutter. The shutter construction is basically the same for either with the difference being in the shutter roll cover and guides.

For applications up to 4000mm wide when electrically operated it is a very versatile security shutter with a very strong construction and small and neat curtain roll diameter.

The Seceuroshield 38 shutter is available as an internal swivel/geared belt driven manual operation, spring assisted manual push up/pull down or rod crank operation and electric operation with a large choice of access control devices such as keyswitches, pushbuttons, radio controls, etc.

The Seceuroshield 3801 is a built on only version of the 38 which has been tested and approved for the LPCB certification. This is a 'secure by design' approved product and offers a level 1 rating for insurance purposes. The 3801 is an enhanced version of the 38 with extra strength in the bottom of the guides and additional requirments for fixing to enable certification.

Methods of security shutter operation
Swivel/Geared Belt Shutters are raised and lowered from inside by a belt.
Depending upon shutter size the belt is operated manually or by geared crank handle. This is a lower security option.

Rod Crank Shutters are raised and lowered from inside by a geared rod crank winding handle which hangs down vertically underneath the box and secures on a clip when not in use.

Spring Loaded Shutters for external operation on exit doors, shutters can be spring loaded with a transverse key lock in the bottom slat. Also a popular option for bar, servery, counter, cabinet and kiosk applications. (N.B. The bottom slat projects below the shutter when fully raised, check that this will not obstruct outward opening doors)

Electric Motors are required on larger shutters and are optional on smaller shutters. Tubular barrel motors fit inside the shutter axle and require a 3 amp fuse and 240V supply. Operation is usually by rocker switch, key switch or remote control as standard but othr controls are available. A manual override can be specified to operate from inside in the event of a power supply failure. Where desirable a manual override can also be engaged through the outside of an externally fitted shutter box. Under these circumstances a lockable override cover is available as an optional extra to maximise security. Multi-shutter electric installations can be wired to operate from a central or group switches. Ask for further details. Care should be taken to ensure that such installations are in line with current Health and Safety Legislation.
