What are insulated roller shutter doors?
Insulated roller shutter doors provide superior thermal performance whilst reducing noise pollution and draughts.
Whether you’re looking to make your warehouse more energy efficient with comfortable room temperatures or want to maximise security with robust doors that can help you save energy costs, insulated roller shutter doors are an ideal option.
Double skin for the win
Generally, the strength, sturdiness and security of double-skin roller shutter doors is higher than any single-skin counterpart.
Single skin doors have one layer of steel or aluminium, while double skin doors have two layers, with a layer of insulation.
Double skin doors are more energy efficient as they will help you retain heat during winter and keep your commercial premises cooler throughout summer.
Understanding thermal insulation values
The thermal insulation of a roller shutter door is measured in watts per square metre of surface area for a temperature gradient of one Kelvin per metre thickness (w/m.sq.k).
The lower the value, the better the thermal efficiency of the material. For example, our advanced insulated shutters have a thermal value of 0.69w/m.sq.k and 18db available as standard across the lath, helping to reduce noise pollution and heat loss.
Our doors also feature guides with brush seals to minimise operational noise. Increased performance options include steel, aluminium and stainless options in various profile sizes.
Therefore, whilst the value is important, it’s also crucial to consider the various materials, features and extras to ensure your door is fit for purpose.
When it comes to insulated roller shutter doors, there are many advantages, and below we’ve detailed several key points well worth considering.
Reduced Energy Costs
Many warehouses, factories, and logistics centres have ‘weak spots’ where heat exchange is easiest – typically doors and window seals.
Rather than allowing heat or cold air to escape, insulated roller shutters help regulate the internal temperature of your commercial premises.
This can lead to significant reductions in energy costs as you won’t need to rely on external heating or cooling systems as much to maintain a comfortable temperature inside.
Another key advantage of insulated roller shutters is the increased security they offer.
Double skin doors are more difficult to break through, providing an extra layer of protection for your premises, products and staff.
When combined with high-security locks, you can be sure that your business is safe and secure when using these doors.
Minimise your carbon footprint
As well as saving you money on energy costs, insulated roller shutters can also help to minimise your carbon footprint.
The doors work by trapping heat inside your premises, so you won’t need to use as much energy to heat or cool the building.
As a result, you’ll be using less fossil fuel, helping to reduce your business’ impact on the environment.
Insulated roller shutter doors are an ideal solution if you’re looking for an efficient and secure way to improve the thermal performance of your commercial premises.
