Roller shutter versus Compact door  

The summary above shows that the range of applications of a Compact door is limitless and much wider than that of a roller shutter. One of the most significant similarities is that both doors are easy to install and require little installation space. The Compact door also wins out in other areas. This type of door also offers the following advantages:

  • Wicket door option: the option to install a wicket door so that the entire Compact door does not need to be opened all the time.
  • Light ingress: high light levels due to the option to install a window or glazing.
  • Insulation: our Compact door is always insulated.
  • Flexible design: the design can be customised to match the                  exterior of your existing building. 

The Compact door can also be integrated where roller shutters are currently installed.


Types of roller shutters and their advantages

Roller shutters are available in various types and specifications. They gained their popularity as a door fitting in agricultural and industrial premises. They are also well suited to this application due to the fact that they are indestructible and are available at a relatively low cost. With the Compact door, we combine the advantages of a roller shutter with the other features that we and our customers require in the ideal product.
