Much like any vital piece of technology, proper care and maintenance are essential to maximizing the longevity of your security shutter. Roller shutter maintenance should not be overlooked, and proper care should be taken, no matter what the sector.
As the first line of defense against theft, break-in’s and vandalism, secure roller shutters will suffer significant direct damage over the course of their lifetimes. Then consider the product’s day-to-day wear from use by staff and personnel, and exposure to weather and elements (in the case of externally fitted shutters). For example, keeping retail security shutters in good working order and well maintained will save time and money in the long run, as they won’t need to be replaced so soon.
So to keep your shutter operating optimally and providing the best possible defence to your premises, a maintenance agreement with your supplier/installer is essential. When approaching a prospective supplier, be sure to ask exactly what’s included in their maintenance agreements, as not all companies will offer the same services.
