Let’s face it; deliberately including holes in your secure roller shutters might seem a little counter-intuitive. After all, wouldn’t they just make it easier to break in through? Compromise its level of security, even?
But depending on your particular sector, a perforated shutter may provide some specific benefits, and may even be an essential design requirement.
For example, those installing onto a retail premises will want to ensure their storefronts are able to showcase stock at all hours, open or closed. A perforated roller security shutter means that even during the evening, customers are still able to browse the store’s wares. We often find that perforated shutters are a popular choice for retail security shutters, due to this.
In the case of structures like indoor or underground car parks, perforated shutters are a must. Harmful fumes build up quickly in structures such as this; so perforated shutters are required for car park ventilation.
But what about the shutter’s security rating? Is it not affected by being perforated? That depends on the SR rating of the shutter you require. In many instances, an SR2 rated shutter offers excellent defence against a range of attacks.
Here at Obexion, we produce a perforated SR2 shutter designed specifically for applications like these. It’s designed to withstand attack by a determined opportunist using bodily force and mechanically advanced tools of medium size. Our SR2 shutter is also certified to LPS 1175. But for the full specification of what an SR2 can protect against, we’d recommend taking a look at our SR ratings guide.
