Roller shutter vs sectional door: which is best for my business?

Physically securing a premises is a top priority for any company, and specifiers should consider the benefits of different secure doors before deciding on which to install. When looking for an application that delivers a high level of security, it is often a case of choosing between a roller shutter or a sectional door, both of which provide many benefits.

The benefits of a roller shutter differs depending on which model in installed however, standard shutters offer a high level of security and are designed for frequent use. This makes them well suited for use in areas with high traffic during operating hours, but require strong security when not in use.

Roller shutters can be specified to provide additional benefits, with fire shutters offering up to 4 hours of fire integrity, and thermally insulated shutters preventing air loss from areas with controlled temperatures and helping to minimise noise pollution.

All roller shutters within the HAG range have an overhead box for storage of the shutter when open, and have a high level of weather resistance. Individual shutters can be used for internal and external use where appropriate.

Sectional doors operate similarly to roller shutters and are stored overhead when opened, with models such as the S Door being designed with a curved overhead track to accommodate for reduced room overhead.

The doors deliver a high level of weather resistance, with seals around outer edges and intermediate panels. These seals also help control internal temperature, making the model incredibly well suited for areas within premises that require controlled climates.

With the option of clear window panels that allow for clear visibility, the doors are regularly used in fire stations, emergency services vehicle storage facilities, and distribution warehouses.
