Aluminium Roller Shutters in action

Slat Types

AC Screens & Shutters offers two basic slat types, namely Roll-formed or Extruded, and both are manufactured exclusively from aluminium for its light weight and excellent durability. Both slat types are supplied in a range of slat sizes (40mm, 55mm and 77mm) to suit the opening size to be covered.

Roll-formed slats are made from high quality aluminium sheeting coils that are wet-coated in stove-baked enamel and rolled into a hollow profile that is then injected with CFC-free polyurethane foam. They are very light weight yet provide good strength with excellent thermal and noise insulation properties. Roll-formed slats are an economical and quick solution suitable for most applications, but are only available in a fixed range of colours.

Extruded aluminium slats provide greater strength at the expense of higher weight and cost. They are epoxy powder coated to any of the wide range of available colours to optimally match the architectural design requirements. Extruded slats are the preferred solution where the primary application is security, where the opening sizes are too large for roll-formed slats to span, or where the standard pre-coated colours of roll-formed slats are not aesthetically suitable necessitating a custom powder coating colour.

Available slat sizes depending on the opening size to be spanned:


Slat height Roll-formed Extruded
40mm CD150 CD40
55mm CD200 CD70
77mm CD77 (White only) CD78 (Special import)

Cassette Types

The roller shutter is protected inside either a built-in galvanised steel or wooden box for new buildings, or inside a neat roll-formed aluminum cassette for retrofitting onto existing buildings. Built-in boxes are custom-designed for the specific application, while add-on cassette size is dependent on the size of the opening, the shaft diameter and the slat type:

Size options: 150mm; 165mm; 180mm; 205mm; 230mm; 250mm; 300mm; 400mm

The benefits of Aluminium Roller Shutters

Protection

AC Screens reconciles the contradiction of protection from troublesome to unbearable heat and dazzling light, including reflections on computer and television screens, and at the same time filtering through beneficial natural sunlight. No awning can offer better protection and control of solar energy than a screen.

Peace of mind

The advantage of outward visibility onto swimming pools for families with small children is not to be overlooked.
