You can never have “too much” storage space in the home. Many homeowners need more storage space, and the garage is usually where we store the things we just don’t have room for in the house, so maximising the space in the garage is important.
We recognise the need for a garage roller door that can be fitted where there is very little headroom above the opening of the door. This eliminates the need to use panel lift, sectional or tilt-up doors, which can be dangerous and unreliable.
Conventional garage doors roll up into at least a 400mm roll. Panel lift doors take up all the roof space in the garage. Adshutters have a system that rolls up more than 50% smaller than a standard roller door and only needs around 20cm above the opening for a standard height garage. Our extruded aluminium garage doors can roll up into a roll as small as 205mm, leaving much more head height and roof space for storage.

How to choose a roller shutter company?
5 Things To Check Before Choosing A Roller Shutter Company
1. Check on The Installers Track Record
Find out if the shutters company have permanent, trained work force, or hire contractors to do the work. Some companies outsource the installation of shutters to contractors. The contractor is often remunerated based on the number of shutters they install. Which can inadvertently compromise the quality of the installation, because they are more concerned in meeting their numbers, rather than producing a quality installation. Poorly installed shutters can impact the operation of the roller shutter and lead to maintenance issues. Furthermore, you might experience problems getting a shutters company to service your shutters if the work was outsourced to installation contractors.
2. Check The Quality of The Shutter
Some foreign imported shutters from countries such as China are sometimes less reliable as ‘Australian made’ shutters. Lower price however, does not always mean low quality. There are two factors that can affect the shutters. The first is the quality of the shutter and how well they are made. And secondly, the installation. It’s really important that the shutters are fitted correctly to the exterior and interior of the house to avoid maintenance issues later on.
3. Who is Pricing and Quoting Your Shutters Project?
In an effort to increase sales, some companies hire salespeople to do their quoting. However, sales people will not always have the industry experience to quote accurately. This can result in slightly inflated pricing due to the incorrect scope and scale of the project. Salespeople are paid on performance. So you could end up with quotes for non-essential things just to increase the value of the sale. It’s a good idea to seek more than one quote before making your decision.
4. Check Your Premise Will be Tidied After The Shutters Are Installed
There’s nothing worse than having to tidy up after builders vacate your premises. Clarify with your installer that your premise will be tidied up once the project is complete.
5. Does The Shutters Come With A Guarantee?
You must feel confident that the installer of your shutters will carry out a professional job. However, you can not be totally sure, so ask whether they offer some form of guarantee to give you peace of mind.

How can I operate my roller shutter?
Electric 240v (Good for all applications)
The easiest of all operations, a tubular AC motor is placed inside the axle and a switch on the wall, remote control or a key switch can operate the shutter (which can also be fitted with a manual over-ride in case of power outage).
Spring with Key Lock
This is a simple lift up, pull down operation with a counter balance spring inside the axle to aid with the weight of the shutter, which can be lifted with just two fingers. A key lock is at the bottom.
Winch Winder (Good for home windows)
A winch is placed on the inside wall of the room and the handle is wound for the up and down movement of the shutter. We use steel cable on our winch, which is a lot more durable than the standard tape commonly used, which can easily break rubbing on any materials through the wall.
