How to keep your Electric Rolling Shutter long lasting?


An electric shutter is a roller shutter whose closing and opening is done by an electric motor and not manually. These shutters are usually located in relatively large openings of the warehouse, but not only, and include the shutter stages, the lifting and lowering axis and a motor. The axle and motor are in a box above the shutter and are controlled by a switch or remote control. An electric shutter has many advantages over regular roller shutters because, how to say it, it is simply more comfortable and of better quality.

Advantages of electric shutter: 

  • Simple operation – While manual roller shutters have difficulty opening and closing, especially in the large and heavy sizes, electric shutters do not require the application of force. Manual roller lashes require a mechanism called a “force mechanism”, which causes a number of strokes to be required to lift the shutter. An electric motor actually exempts the user from exerting any effort.
  • A few glitches – the pulls of the manual shutter cause wear of the shutter rope, tearing, and often the shutter gets stuck in the box and does not agree to come down. In an electric shutter on the other hand, the motor creates a balanced closing of the shutter and therefore there is a minority of faults.
  • Long warranty – The warranty on the electric shutter motor is long, ranging from 5-7 years.
  • Take up less space – In electric shutters, the storage box is usually smaller than a manual shutter, and takes up much less space.

Maintenance of electric shutters 

In order for your electric shutters to last for a long time, and you will not encounter small or large faults, you should follow a few tips for proper maintenance:

  • Be sure to clean the electric shutters – it is important to clean the electric shutters so that dust and dirt do not accumulate on them that will prevent them from closing and opening properly. However, do not spray water on them. This is because if water remains on the steps and you roll the shutter up, the water may enter the engine and cause a short circuit. In short, only with a cloth.
  • Before closing the shutter, note that there are no objects in the way that could stop it from falling – as we have already said, a pull-step shutter may “fight” the object to the point of blasting the motor and a foam shutter may simply break.
  • In old shutters look at the shutter when you close it – it is important to look at the shutter when removing it because one of the steps may jaw left or right and thus cause damage to both the shutter and the engine.
  • Once every six months we put the bearing (wheel worn on the axle) on the side of the engine – this will contribute to the longevity of the engine.
  • Note that you have spare steps –  when installing the electric shutter ask the installer if he leaves you some spare steps inside the shutter box, for future repairs it can save you a lot of money if you need to replace a shutter step.
