Protect your housing from hurricanes and housebreakers
Alulux Bahamas "Hurricane Buster" 55 mm Roll down shutters are hurricane rated up to 20' wide, and roll up in a 10" or 12" box.
The extruded aluminum slats and tracks are chromate washed and powdercoated to make sure they can handle extreme ocean front conditions and will last a lifetime.
Our 55 mm aluminum rolling shutters are tested with a design load at 60 PSF and structural load at 90 PSF.
Machine-formed aluminum hoods provide the housing to contain the shutter roll above the protected opening. Within the housing is the shutter curtain attached to the reel that is structurally fastened to the side caps for strength and rigidity. The housing is sealed with caulking to weather proof and maintain a clean and finished look.
Octagonal hot galvanized steel or aluminum reels are used for strength and rigidity. For long spans, larger diameter 100 mm steel reels are used to ensure that the system rolls properly.
End retention Tracks
Manufactured of extruded, hardened 6063-T6 aluminum alloy to ensure maximum structural integrity. Wind, rain and noise are eliminated with poly weather stripping on both sides of track.
Alulux Bahamas uses the quietest, state-of-the-art and U.L.-recognized motors. A fully trained electrician assures the wiring is done properly. All motors are fully contained within the shutter reel and incorporate a
thermal-overload protection device. The motors are self lubricating and sealed for years of trouble-free service. Optional built in manual override guarantees total control over your rolling shutters at all times, even in cases of power failure.
Safety-lock hangers mount the slat to the reel which prevents the shutter from being lifted when closed. Provides security and reduces noise. Safety-lock hangers will require less maintenance than slats directly fastened to the reel.
Gears, Springs & Bearings
The stainless steel worm gear installed on manual shutters provides years of trouble-free use and requires no maintenance. Heavy duty springs assist in smooth performance of the shutter, improving ease of operation.
Aluminum and stainless steel with hand cushions.
Domestic grade fasteners of the highest quality for strength and durability.
The system has been tested to and has passed ASTM protocols E330, E1886, E1996-02 as well as TAS 201, TAS 202, and TAS 203.
