Sliding shutters

DescriptionSpecific applications



A sliding shutter is comparable to a sliding door. However, the door leaf does not slide on the side, but opens upwards. This puts a much greater constraint on the dimensions of these systems. 


A counterweight and a magnet enable the door to remain suspended above the wall opening. If the magnet is released (activated manually or by a fire alarm), the leaf slides downwards. 


All the fittings are fully integrated into a stainless steel housing, secured in front of the wall opening. Surface-mounted fitting using screws. Sliding shutters are basically always fire-resisting with a stainless steel cover.




The dimensions of the wall openings tested are (LxH): 


  • 1250×660 mm
  • 460×1000 mm
  • 520×1000 mm
  • 2320×1090 mm
  • 220×460 mm
  • 220×750 mm
