Reliable Industrial Roller Shutters

Pegasus supply a very wide range of roller shutter doors for the industrial sector where the environment is often harsh with high use requirements and sometimes very large sizes.

Industrial warehouses and factories can often also be exposed so the wind becomes a key factor in the specification for the roller doors used.

Industrial Roller doors can be separated into multiple categories depending on different uses and requirements. High usage and Low usage, and this defines the need for either a single or three phase electric motor drive system. A single phase motor is not to be used if the door is to open and close many times every day, especially if the door is very high, as this means the motor is operating for longer periods during opening and closing.

Stylish Industrial Roller Shutter Options To Choose From

Fast Action / High Speed Roller Shutters

We have a solution for every door size and requirement from a vast range of the highest quality high speed door systems using the very latest technology.

High Speed or ‘Fast Action’ Roller Shutters are used for many applications where high traffic volumes require a door to keep a building environment and temperature as constant as possible. The high speed door can travel up in as little as 2 seconds and close as quickly for maximum efficiency.

Some door models are specifically designed to keep cold in for refrigerated rooms, warehouses, etc.. High speed (or ‘fast action’) Shutters are usually manufactured from very strong material with the option of clear vision panels built in so you can see what may be happening on the other side of the closed door. Samson also offer a range of high speed aluminium roller Shutters and ‘spiral’ doors an adaptation on a sectional door but operating at high speed.

They also help to keep dust, rain and wind levels lower in a building.

If they are to be used on the external perimiter of a building they are usually combined with another door such as a steel roller shutter or sectional door to secure the premises when closed during non operational times.

Security Roller Shutter

The rigorous LPS 1175 burglary resistance standard is operated by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). LPCB are the UK’s leading independent certification body and the LPS 1175 standard is recognised and endorsed by 16 organisations including the Association of British Insurers and the Association of Police Officers.

Secured By DesignLPCB

      • Traditional and Continental design

      • White, Brown, Black and Cream as standard

      • Available as solid or perforated

      • Strong single skin galvanised steel profile

      • Medium security office / commercial / industrial applications

      • Spans widths up to 6000 mm

      • Can be powder coated any RAL / BS colour

      • Flexibility to mix solid and perforated slats together when only partial vision is required

      • Will reverse coil if required (will increase coil size)

Direct Drive Roller Shutter

  • Double Skinned Curtain – Providing an all-round tight fit. This is ensured by a frost-proof flexible lip seal along the bottom edge, a flocked special material at the lintel, as well as a fine bristle seal in the side guides (Please note: the plastic runners and brush seals are only available in the Aluminium side guides ensuring a quiet and smooth operation)

  • Wind Lock – Robust wind lock end pieces and deflection-resistant bottom profiles enable your door to withstand high wind loads.

  • Finger Trap Protection– Black plastic strips on the edges of the side guide protect against cuts.

  • Anti-Fall Safeguard – Separate catch safety device for chain drive and tubular operators. Just like the integral version, this version is a high-performance device that responds as soon as the speed limit is fractionally exceeded.

Manual Roller Shutter

  • Manually operated, industrial specification, roller doors, are usually installed in applications where the usage is very low, such as a farm building, or private storage warehouse where the door is perhaps only opened once or twice a week. Of course, if there is no electricity available the choice is already made for you.
  • Although many people we talk to every day say they are looking for a manual and basic steel roller shutter so many of them end up buying an electric operated roller door as it is not realised how small the difference can actually be in price. In fact, at certain sizes it may actually be cheaper to have a singe phase tubular motor drive and certainly far more convenient when operating the shutter, infrequently or not.
  • A manually operated roller shutter is fine as long as the operational effort is understood fully and the speed at which a large door will open and close is also taken into account.

Extra Large Roller Doors

  • If you require a very large roller shutter door for your building then this is the one to look at. Manufactured in one piece up to a massive 18 metres wide, but then able to be doubled up in width to 36 metres wide this is truly a super size roller shutter door. It is also available up to 12 metres high and makes it ideal for shipyards hangars, waste processing centres, warehouses and the like.
  • The Thermoteck XXL is a masterpiece of engineering and offers tested capability rather than a lot of companies who simply put longer sections of lath onto a larger barrel and hope it works in daily operation, a fingers crossed approach. The Thermoteck is a tested roller shutter door, CE marked and fully compliant with all the very latest safety regulations in the UK and Europe.

Underground Roller Shutter

  • Double Skinned Curtain – Providing an all-round tight fit. This is ensured by a frost-proof flexible lip seal along the bottom edge, a flocked special material at the lintel, as well as a fine bristle seal in the side guides (Please note: the plastic runners and brush seals are only available in the Aluminium side guides ensuring a quiet and smooth operation)

Made in Britain 

The Pegasus Door company do offer manually operated roller doors but they are relatively rare these days in industrial applications, with electric motor prices being so competitive. Manual operation is used on smaller or very low usage roller doors only.

Once the usage is defined you need to think about whether the door needs to be an insulated double skinned curtain or a single skin steel curtain without insulation properties. The double skinned curtain roller doors will also offer greater far strength overall in the curtain so tend to have higher wind ratings when installed with suitable side guides and are highly recommended.

Insulated roller shutter doors also offer higher levels of security which is a key factor theses days too with increased break ins on commercial premises.The width and height of a door will often define the model and type of curtain to be used as each have their limits and the colour may also affect what is a stock slat or requires painting and therefore affects the overall price.

With massive leaps in technology and materials it is also now possible to have far higher speeds of opening and closing without going to what used to be called a high speed door. The fast action fabric roller door is still used extensively in many applications but there are now new generations of steel and aluminium roller shutter doors capable of fairly fast opening speeds which can negate the requirement for a fabric speed door system in a warehouse or factory depending on the number of operations per day.
