Why We Only Offer Motorised Shutters
Over the past 29 years and 150,000 shutter installations we have learned from experience that motorised shutters face far fewer problems than manual shutters.
Manual shutters are wound up & down by people who are always in a hurry. The speed the shutters are wound up or down can place a great deal of strain on the wires & belts, onto the pulleys and the control unit therefore reducing the lifespan of the shutter system.
An electronic shutter has a motor that operates at a constant speed and has limits set so when the limits are reached the motor stops the shutter movement gently, without load or strain on the other components and thus increasing the lifespan of the shutter system.
Also, with a strap or cable manual system, the cable must be attached on an angle, which causes strain on the diverter pullies or winder boxes, causing more ongoing service issues for the life of your shutter.
Manual handles are also unsightly and switches are much more aesthetically pleasing in your home, require no real effort and the remotes can be hidden out of sight and away from the system entirely. Motorised, electronic shutters will increase the resell value of your home as they are easily usable by families and people of all ages.
Our Control System
- ASA Italian Motors
- AC 240 Volt Electric Motor (hardwired to your home's mains)
- Wall Switch or Remote Control (costs apply)
This option gives you full automation of your roller shutter and will need to be wired into the mains of the property by a fully qualified electrician.
A wall switch comes standard with the AC Electric Motor system. This wall switch is mounted on the wall of the inside of the room close to the shutter or it can be positioned elsewhere by the electrician, depending on the application.
Quality Control & Testing
- 1 in 10 motors is tested immediately when they arrive.
- 100% of motors are tested through multiple shutter cycles once installed into a shutter.
- Motor limits are then initially set by our technicians.
Our motors are thoroughly tested on a custom-built machine to test the load each can handle. Each is then tested upon use and the shutter is operated multiple times before being packaged and sent on its way.
These new Italian ASA motors are a huge improvement we've made to our shutter system. We have tested other motors against ours to ensure we only carry high-quality shutter components. We thoroughly test every component from the motors to paint colour, heat & noise resistance and shutter operation noise to ensure you the best product for your home.
