Commercial Roller Shutters - AR77 & SAR177

AR77 & AR177 wide span security roller shutters are ideal for securing very large shop fronts, commercial and industrial buildings, entrances & alcoves, carpark and basement areas and dividing internal floor/office space areas.


The AR77 Roller Shutter with a standard density core is designed to cover widths of up to 5 metres in one span whereas the SAR177 with a high-density polyurethane core is designed to cover widths of up to 6 metres.

These wide span security shutters are sleek and unobtrusive in design. Integrating a Compact German Box System (tailored overhead pelmet) leaves doorways, entrances and window areas completely unobstructed as the shutter rolls up and into its compact pelmet box.

Bulkheads and specifically the lack of room has been a key issue and most retailers, shopfitters, builders and architects are searching for security rollers shutters that provide a compact roll diameter. Both these shutter profiles roll onto axles of 60mm and up to 102mm in diameter overcoming most bulkhead restrictions or can be incorporated with Eurotec's Compact German Box Pelmet system for any external roll diameter requirements.

The SAR177 security roller shutter systems has an additional feature of security storm clips which are screwed into the high density polyurethane core, locking into the inside of the 100mm extruded tracking system satisfying the demand for extra strength and security in high wind areas.

The high-density core is so rigid there is very little deflection and combined with storm clips makes it the strongest roll formed security roller shutter on the

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


Most security shutters can be manually operated, although motorisation can be adapted in almost every instance. Manually operated security roller shutters incorporate an assist torsion spring, which is designed to counterbalance the weight of the shutter promoting ease of use. A 'D' handle can be fitted to assist in the raising and lowering of the security roller shutter.

AR77 & SAR177 security shutters slide into extruded aluminium tracks that are at least 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.

Larger roller shutters will require the assistance of space saving 240 volt direct drive tubular motors (slide into the axle), which make operating your security shutter as simple as flicking a switch, using a remote control or turning a key switch.

Technical Specifications

AR77 & SAR177 profiles have a face depth of 77mm x 18.5mm curved blade and constructed from roll formed aluminium slats with an upper double folded lip (for extra strength) which forms a continuous hinge. Each slat (shutter curtain) is fitted with specially moulded end clips, which prevents lateral movement offering a smooth and quiet operation.

Each slat is coated with a fade and abrasive resistant enamel and injected with a polyurethane core. The SAR177 has the added feature of a high-density core.

An extruded aluminium profile with a face depth of 77mm x 19mm with rectangular punched sections of 80mm x 35mm at 80mm intervals provide ample natural light into designated areas. There are provisions in the extrusion for an optional polycarbonate insert if required.

An extruded aluminium profile with a face depth of 77mm x 16mm with double 80mm vertical slots (one on top of the other) at 80mm intervals provide ample natural airflow into designated areas.

Both these extrusions are compatible with the AR77 and SAR177 or can be used with the solid extruded bottom rail

Manufactured from a 90mm x 35mm extruded aluminium section or an optional 100mm x 35mm which is available to be used with storm clip inserts.

Both tracks have a hollow section for concealing fixings and

  • 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 or up to 102mm galvanised octagonal axle.

Is constructed from a 77mm x 19mm 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 is positioned at the base of the roller shutter.

Can be used on almost any size security 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.

A special anti-fall 'parachute' appliance is highly recommended in larger areas. This unique system acts as an extra braking system in addition to the tubular motors braking system, offering a safeguard to the operator.

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, offering complete peace of mind.
