Roller Shutter Maintenance

Roller shutters are a complex piece of machinery.  To enjoy years of safe and efficient service it’s important to keep your shutters in good shape.

It’s for this reason that we recommend a regular maintenance calendar so as to extend the operation of your roller shutters, and ensure the year round security of your premises.

After all, it’s better to service your shutters before a breakdown rather than after a problem occurs!

It’s also important to note that there are legal regulations surrounding roller shutter maintenance, namely:

Regulation 5 of the Workplace (Health, Safety, and Welfare) Regulations 1992

This regulation primarily requires that every powered door – which includes roller shutters - are to be "maintained in an efficient condition" and that they are "subject to a suitable method of maintenance".

Likewise, the regulation states that possibly risky equipment should be: “checked at regular breaks, as applicable, by inspecting, testing, adjusting, lubricating, repairing and cleaning.”

- Regulation 5 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)

The PUWER states that if a maintenance log is necessary that the employer must ensure it’s up to date.

PUWER is intended to “ensure work equipment does not deteriorate to the extent that it may put people at risk”.
