Commercial Roller Shutter Doors
Commercial roller shutter doors are often an essential part of your security on your business premises. They can help to prevent and deter break-ins, but they do require maintenance.
It is a legal requirement that electrically operated doors, including roller shutter doors and access doors, are inspected and tested annually as a minimum.
The regulations have also recently been altered, with revised European and British Standards on the safety of doors, gates and barriers – BS EN 12453:2017 and BS EN 12604:2017.
HSE advises that these measures must cover:
- Undertaking a risk assessment covering the unique environment and type of user
- The selection and implementation of appropriate design measures
- Ensuring appropriate levels of force limitation (below the specified maximum)
- Where the technology permits, ensuring that the safety function is monitored and checked before each movement; and
- Ensuring effective measures are in place to detect any means of failure in the means of suspension for vertically moving doors.
At Robinsons Facilities Services, we can ensure your doors are routinely tested to ensure health and safety standards are being met.
Benefits of Commercial Roller Shutter Door Maintenance
Industrial and commercial doors are often subject to a lot of wear and tear due to the heavy use, but we can ensure that your doors are thoroughly checked and maintained in accordance with a schedule to suit your needs.
This is not just about staying in line with the regulations. Maintenance can also help with the following:
- Ensuring doors open and close smoothly to avoid potential accidents.
- Checking the door is correctly balanced to help prolong its life.
- Lubricating moving parts to keep noise to a minimum and prevent excessive wear.
- Adjusting the tension of springs so that the door opens and closes properly.
- Examining the structure of the door for any signs of damage or wear and tear.
Shutter doors are supposed to help to keep your premises secure, and if there is damage then it is likely that they will be ineffective.

Commercial Roller Shutter Doors FAQs
Roller shutters tend to be made out of a series of slats held together with hinges, which makes a heavy and flexible door for commercial premises. A roller door has a single sheet of metal material.
Roller shutter doors are tough and hard to break into, this is one of the reasons why they are so good at preventing and deterring potential break-ins on your commercial premises. Of course, those made from sturdier materials are harder to penetrate.
If you buy high-quality shutter doors it is certainly feasible that they can last you for decades, especially if you carry out regular maintenance and take good care of your shutter doors.
