Extruded Commercial Roller Shutters : AR6 & AR-17

Ideal for securing schools, sporting pavilions, hospitals, shop fronts, entrances and alcoves, cigarette counters, kiosks, storage areas and shelving and serveries.

The AR6 & AR17 Extruded Aluminium Roller Shutters can span to any size up to four metres in width as a single roller shutter. Unlimited spans can be achieved by permanent or in most instances removable mullions.


AR6 & AR17 Extruded Aluminium security roller shutters are sleek and unobtrusive in design. Integrating a Compact German Box System (tailored overhead pelmet) leaves doorways, entrances and mall throughways completely unobstructed as the shutter rolls up and into its compact pelmet box.

Both extrusions are a double walled shutter and have a wall thickness of 1.2mm for extra strength. They slide into extruded aluminium tracks that are three times the strength and thickness of conventional side guides which also provide a solid anchoring point to effectively lock the curtain in position for extra security.

The extruded profiles can be operated manually by means of a pull down key lock system, or motorised for ease of use by means of a flick switch, key switch or remote control.

Our in house powder coating facilities allow you to choose colours from the entire Dulux range.

Constant quality and sample testing of the finished product is performed to guarantee its conformity with manufacturing standards.


AR6 & AR17 extruded aluminium roller shutters can be manually operated, although motorisation can be adapted in almost every instance. An assist torsion spring is designed to counterbalance the weight of the door promoting ease of use. A 'D' handle can be fitted to assist in the raising and lowering of the extruded roller shutter.

Larger roller shutters will require the assistance of space saving direct drive tubular motors (slide into the axle), which makes operating the security shutter as simple as flicking a switch, using a remote control or turning a key switch.

Technical Specifications

Is constructed from extruded aluminium slats with a face depth of 40mm x 9mm flat blade (AR6) or a 44mm x 9mm (AR17) curved blade. Both extrusions are a double walled shutter and have a wall thickness of 1.2mm for extra strength and joined by an upper lip which forms a continuous hinge. Each slat (shutter curtain) is fitted with specially moulded end clips, which prevent lateral movement offering a smooth and quiet operation.

Diamond punched extruded slats can be added for extra ventilation and light (AR6 Extruded Profile only) with an option of a clear polycarbonate backing that can be fitted to provide a dust seal.

Manufactured from a 53mm x 21mm extruded aluminium section for Compact German Box installations.

The tracks

  • have a hollow section for concealing fixings
  • are fitted with a nylofelt buffer for a quiet and smooth operation
  • allow a shutter penetration of up to mm deep for improved security

Is constructed of a 70mm galvanised octagonal axle.

Is constructed from a 55mm x 7.5mm extruded aluminium section.

Specially designed security springs connect the top slat to the axle. When the security roller shutter has been activated fully in its down position, these clever springs will throw the top of the roller shutter into the back of the pelmet box if someone were to try and lift the shutter from the outside.

25mm x 3mm steel flat bars are housed inside an extruded aluminium section across the entire width of the shutter, anchoring deep into the side guides when activated. The locking mechanism is controlled by a two-way double turn mortice lock that can be positioned at the base of the roller shutter.

Can be used on almost any size security window roller shutter opening and recommended on larger openings. Space saving direct drive tubular motors (slide into the axle) can be controlled by a toggle switch, key switch or remote control.

Multiple Roller Shutters can be operated by a single remote control or with a centrally mounted gang switch.

UPS systems are strongly recommended particularly where there is a security roller shutter covering a doorway. These clever battery packs convert 24 volt to 240 volt power in case of power failure and do not enter into sleep mode when power fails, allowing you and your family complete peace of mind.
