Comparing Our Product to Our Competitors
Compare Ultimate Shutters - Often when people get two competing quotes they see them as "the same" product but in reality, they aren't. Our shutters aren't just different from our competitors, they're provably better. Instead of telling you why, we thought showing you would get the point across much better. Take a look at some of the facts and videos below on why our a quote on our shutters isn't just another quote in your inbox.
The axle is an important component that bears the weight of your shutter.
Axle Idler Strength
The difference between our idler and our competitors is its strength. Our idler is 5 times stronger than our competitor's idler. That’s like expecting a car to take the load of what a truck does. It will fail sooner than later.
Shutter locks prevent the shutter from being forced open. These locks are absolute necessity if you need security. Without these locks, you can push the shutters up easily.
The difference between our idler and our competitors.
No axle rings or foam shutter links
This video shows exactly what you will receive from our competitors
We finish our shutter guides (side rails) professionally with an end cap instead of the exposed aluminium cut.
No locking shutter directly on axle
Competitors would like you to believe that connecting the shutter directly to the axle makes the shutter lock and give you security but this couldn’t be further from the truth as you can see in this video.
Axle size and gauge
Our axle is significantly larger and thicker which means it doesn't bend when carrying medium to large Roller Shutters.
Protective Side Plates
Keep your shutter from getting caught in the guides or jammed completely.
Rings & Springs
Without shutter locks you are forced to attach profile directly to the axle. What happens then?
No Room in Our Competitor's axle
Our competitor's axle has no room to secure the shutter links when the motor is inserted which connects to the shutter. So there is no support of the shutter for the length of the motor i.e. 700mm.
Compare apples to apples and our shutter is very clearly a superior, high quality shutter worthy of being on your home for the next 20-30 years. Our axle inserts are stronger (proven), our shutter locks work and the competitor solution does not (proven), our protective side plates and rubber rings prevent troubles down the line and service calls (proven) and our colours will match the existing Colorbond on your home better than any other roller shutter in the market (proven). When you compare what we're doing to what others are doing you will quite easily see the difference.
