Are you looking for roller shutters that can protect your family, home & business from storm damage? We can help!
Australia has been prey to some extremely destructive cyclones, and we understand as a home or business owner, it’s your number one priority to make sure your loved ones, properties & investments are protected by the best available.
At Perth Homeguard we have a Cyclone Shutter Series, which is a new shutter that will not only add value to your property but most of all protect & secure your home and business. Whether it’s for commercial or residential use, our cyclone shutters will have the strength to combat anything mother nature can throw at it.
Our AR400 ‘HDF’ Slat Profile
The AR400 HDF slat profile integrates the guide profile to lock within a central channel, which contributes to its superior strength. The added force placed on the restrained guide is built so that it can be dealt with easily. The thicker walls and the deeper engagement of the design allows the restraining slat to be inserted without problems.
The slat is coated before it’s formed. This is important because it means the metal will be protected from damage and corrosion. It’s another example of how the slat has been designed for increased strength and resilience. Thanks to this, it’s expected that the slat profile will perform well for a long time to come.
Cyclone Rated Super Shutter
Every shutter has to go through a testing process that determines how strong and safe it is. The rating that all shutters aim for is the Cyclone Rating. In Australia, there are a set of Australian Standards that have to be met in order for the Cyclone Rating to be awarded.
The Super Security Shutter has been tested and Ozroll has advised that it be awarded the Cyclone Rating. This shutter, which incorporates the AR400 HDF slat, underwent cyclone tests. This happened at the Cyclone Testing Station in Queensland. The fact that it’s been awarded this important rating shows how strong and reliable the shutter will be.
The testing that the shutters underwent involved using an airbox facility. This then creates the conditions that are brought about during a tropical cyclone. By mimicking the real-world conditions that arise during these extreme weather events, the testing is reliable. During the testing, enormous loads can be simulated, and the shutters are tested when they’re installed to the wall. That’s exactly how they would be fitted and installed in a real-world scenario.
You should never purchase shutters if they haven’t been through this cyclone testing process. If you do, you will run the risk of not getting the protection for your home or commercial property that you need. That’s the kind of risk that’s worth taking when it comes to security and protection. Cyclones can cause real damage to your property, so it’s not the kind of threat you can afford to ignore. Security roller shutters have to be secure first and foremost. When you do buy quality shutters from us, control options can be discussed with a specialist consultant.
Stormshield Roller Shutters
Since its inception, our Residential Slat has consistently proved to be high quality, robust and well-accepted profile so therein provided the perfect solid platform on which to develop the “Stormshield” profile.
Two Australian Standards for roller shutters were satisfied by the Super Shutter Series:
The AR 400 HDF Perforated Slats are available in these colours:
Deep Ocean Blue
It doesn’t matter if your property is classic, modern or minimalist, our heavy-duty shutters will complement your architecture.
The nominal overall shutter width of the shutter is 2000mm (overall the guides). And the width of the aluminium roller shutter slats is 1840mm. With the box, the height of the overall shutter structure is 2000mm. There is a clear opening between the guides, and this is 1805mm in length.
The roller shutter needs to be fitted in the correct way, and we know how to do this. It must be fitted with a bottom guide to the full width of the exposed curtain. This is important because it then allows the curtain bottom bar section to close down into the bottom guide section in the right way. For the test the shutter was attached to the airbox testing jig by fastening to Z 150×15 purlin supports running across the airbox. It used ‘14 – 10 x 42mm, self-drilling screws at 450 mm centres.
The Test Results:
The test results achieved are very important. If you want to know how secure and safe your home will be kept by these shutters, you need to know what the results were. You don’t need to be an expert to tell that the results of these cyclonic shutters were very positive indeed. These test results give home and business owners the reassurance they need when they’re buying wind rated shutters.
Passing cyclic fatigue loads of 10,200 cycles, the Super Shutter proved its worth when put to the test. The roller shutter supported the final single cycle pressure of 2.5 k Pa for a minute.
This means that the shutter passed. The roller shutter deflection increased to a distance of 82 mm from the standard rest position during the tests. All this means that the shutters are ready to deal with cyclones and protect your property.
