Roller shutter system is used to cover window and door openings. They are made up of interlocking horizontal slates that are guided on side rails to roll up and down. When the shutter is open the shutter is stored in an overhead case, called the shutter box, above the window or door opening. The shutter rolling movement is done either manually, through a strap or crank, or electrically via a switch or remote control.
Rolling shutters have a number of benefits, including:
– Weather protection
– Noise reduction
– Increased security
– Energy saving

– 45 degree
