A medium duty, rollformed aluminum profile with a hard foam core, improved dent resistance, and very durable polyurethane/polymide top coat.
Typical Applications and Solutions
- Wide variety of residential applications for shading, privacy, cold and heat protection, noise reduction, and vandalism protection.
- Wide variety of commercial applications including over windows and doors, and for closing off counter pass-thru areas, cabinets and storage areas for privacy and/or visual appearance, and for vandalism protection.
- Choose SHIELD Mini when the curtain covers a rather wide, yet relatively low opening and when moderate security is desired.
Note: You must comply with all three maximums. Do not exceed any one of them. Maximums are automatically reduced if the rollshutter is exposed to high winds, must satisfy stringent security requirements or is freestanding, such as in the case of a patio enclosure.
Panel Box Limitations
Note: This chart is intended to be a reference guide only. Panel box sizes may vary depending on the required shaft size and hanger lock presence. If you have headroom limitations on your project please contact us at 1-800-665-5550.Heights shown are guide rail heights (B1). Ensure sufficient room above the guide rails for the rollshutter panel box. In addition, the curtain’s bottom profile protrudes approximately 2″ (50mm) below the bottom of the panel box when the curtain is fully rolled up. Therefore, measure the rollshutter purposely high enough to clear any opening window or door parts, or tops of counter enclosures.
Wind Load Information
The graph below shows blow-out wind speed for unprotected, free standing rollshutter curtains. Where rollshutters cover windows and doors you may expect considerably better performance due to the protection offered by the overall wall surface.
Testing was done at the curtain heights stated in the graph. Performance of the actual rollshutter will improve slightly if the application is lower in height than the tested unit. Conversely, performance will decrease slightly if your actual rollshutter is taller than the tested unit.
