A long service life, low maintenance costs and a high degree of functional reliability are common requirements of roll-up doors and roller shutters. The new roller shutter system made of GKD metal mesh guarantees protection from unauthorized access and theft over a width of up to eight meters and a height of five meters. At the same time, however, the filigree mesh grants unhindered views of the areas it protects. Three different stainless steel mesh types – Tigris, Lago or Sambesi – offer planners virtually unlimited design freedom for any desired degree of light and air permeability. Individually adapted light concepts set discreet accents using purposefully directed reflections. The system consisting of mesh, motor, guide rails, end profiles and wall switches is perfectly matched and easy to install, ensuring quick implementation and trouble-free operation. Furthermore, the optimized lateral guides guarantee permanently quiet, smooth opening and closing. Alongside durability – the stainless steel roll-up doors and roller shutters are weather-resistant and easy to maintain – the elegant shutter systems also convince with their functional reliability. The external GfA drive with digital limit switches is built to last and guarantees quiet operation, even when used frequently. Fast raising and lowering of the elegant roller doors ensures a smooth traffic flow. Whether actuated internally or externally, the required level of security is provided in every operating phase thanks to its integrated dead man’s control. Moreover, GKD offers an optional light curtain for an even higher level of security in easily accessible areas. A system with tube motor is recommended for smaller systems with fewer opening cycles. Both systems are CE-certified. The space-saving roller shutter system made of GKD stainless steel mesh discreetly blends in with the respective architecture, thereby opening up a wide variety of elegant application options.
