Security rolling shutters: SR1 – SR4 high security to LPS 1175
High specification, robust protection shutter security
Security rolling shutters are most common in commercial settings, creating a physical barrier to stop ‘would be’ intruders, vandals, trespassers and burglars.
In the UK there are different types of ‘shutters’ available, such as shutter security grilles which better protect windows and doors yet don’t hinder flow of light and air.
The term ‘security rolling shutters’ refers to doors that form a strong barrier, prohibiting natural flow of light and air. They are widely used in banks, museums, prisons, airports, warehouses and data centres.
Hart security shutters are manufactured in Britain to deliver exceptional levels of protection and durability. Faced with increasing threats of international terror and serious crime, Hart invested heavily in designing and testing these high-security counter terrorism shutter systems.
Our range of security shutters, branded as Terror Screen, are manufactured to Loss Prevention Standards as approved by the LPC Fire and Security Board and Expert Group G referred to as LPS1175, giving extra shutter security without compromising reliability.
The LPS1175 rolling shutters provide your business with shutter security to protect vulnerable parts of a building from opportunist attack or deliberate forced entry.
Classified as domestic and low commercial risk, SR1 security shutters provide resistance to tools in Category A. Maximum attack time 1 minute.
For medium domestic and low commercial risk, SR2 security shutters provide resistance to tools in Category A plus B. Maximum attack time 3 minutes.
For medium commercial risk, SR3 security shutters provide resistance to tools in Category A & B plus C. Maximum attack time 5 minutes.
For high commercial risk and medium government risk, SR4 security shutters are tested to withstand 20 minutes of attack, with resistance to tools in Category A, B, C and D.
Benefits of Hart security rolling shutters
Why install a security rolling shutter?
Many security shutters deliver advanced security. If you feel your workplace has too many vulnerable areas or you are concerned of a rise in local burglaries, high quality security rolling shutters will give you peace of mind — you can finally count on a high level of physical protection.
To give you an idea on the very best rolling shutters for security, our highest rated model is the Terror Screen SR4, which delivers the perfect combination of weight and strength. The design incorporates a twin skin steel lath, re-enforced by an aluminium substructure, which is highly resistant to cutting. It can, therefore, withstand 20 minutes of attack, including 10 minutes with drills and hand tools.
Added protection against fire
The heat produced from a fire can cause windows to shatter, meaning hot embers pass through and spread the flames. With top quality rolling shutters that are fire rated, you can increase shutter security and protection for staff, buildings and equipment.
In certain environments, it’s critical that workers have privacy and minimal outside noise levels without worrying about unauthorised persons from entering their workplace. Shutter security is an excellent solution and rolling shutters very physically and visually imposing.
Security shutters may not add an awful amount of charm or character to your property, however they are highly functional and can be finished in a wide range of colours.
As a result, by having shutters for security you can maintain that stern appearance to deter opportunistic criminals, whilst ensuring brand consistency and professionalism.
Lower insurance premiums
Security rolling shutters have long been proved to lower insurance premiums due to the fantastic benefits they bring. Property type and location will always influence commercial property insurance costs, but risk rating and security measures are just as, if not more, impactful — so it makes sense to have maximum shutter security in place.
Many security rolling shutters on the market have optional insulation. In turn, these products reduce or eliminate droughts for workers and prevent heat loss. Companies increase their energy savings as a result, and vermin and dust control can also be included.
