Roller shutters offer premises that important extra layer of protection. They are tough and durable, and a very effective physical and psychological deterrent to crime. There’s a reason why so many commercial premises use roller shutters, because, put simply, they work.
Although the purpose of roller shutters is to be durable and tough, this doesn’t mean that they are impervious to damage. Just like anything else from time to time your roller shutters may require repair and maintenance. Failure to keep your roller shutters in good condition can cause various problems:
For one, if you don’t maintain your shutters then you may be violating the Health and Safety Act of 1974. This states essentially that shutters must be maintained, especially where they are being used on a regular basis. This doesn’t mean that you yourself needs to maintain the shutters, and you can outsource to roller shutter door repairs companies.
We all remember the London riots, which where a blight on our national consciousness. One small positive about these troubles was that it demonstrated, in very explicit terms, the importance of security measures like roller shutters. Without regular roller shutter repairs and maintenance your premises will never be properly secured, and this can have very serious consequences for your business in terms of security.
Perhaps you only think about your commercial shutters when you are closing them at night, well maybe you should give them a second thought, and ensure they are maintained and repaired to a high standard.
