Are Shop Shutter Fronts For You?

Before you decide on which shop front shutters you want to purchase, it is best to ask yourself some questions, so you can select the shutters that suit you and your property’s needs.

Do you need them for security?

Do you want to retain some shopfront visibility?

Do you want reliability?

Yes, to all three? Then Mercian Doors have a selection that will suit you. Just so you know, all our products, including construction, installation and maintenance, are all compliant with all current British Standards and Health and Safety Legislation.

Types Of Properties To Use Our Shop Front Shutters.

Many business owners opt for these shutters, not just the traditional shop fronts as you might expect. These include,

  • Banks
  • Retail Units
  • Hair Salons
  • Beauty Parlours
  • Bars
  • Reception Areas
  • Market Stalls

Types Of Shop Shutter Fronts At Mercian Doors

We offer two types of mesh-type doors.

C50 or C75 Clearline Roller Shutters Doors

These are perfect for the front of your shop, where they can help reduce you being the victim of theft or property damage. These shop front shutters are available for maximum opening size of 12000mm wide x 6000mm high with a 30m² of vision. They also maintain good airflow, and another plus is that they keep out vermin.

Our shutter doors are a traditional construction that you can have in an extensive range of finishes. Depending on size, they come constructed in 50mm flat or 75mm curved steel slats.

A227 Brickbond Grille and A400 Brickbond Master Grille

If you want better visibility of your shop window & products, these two are alternative options. The A227 will fit a 6000 mm wide x 4000 mm high opening. The A400 Mastergrille fits into larger spaces where previously you would have had to use intermediate removable mullions, ensuring your display can still be viewed with the shutters down.

Installing Your New Shop Front Shutter Doors

Yes, you can find plenty of videos out there telling you how to DIY your shutters. However, it can be a false economy. Ask yourself, why pay good money for the right shutters and not have them professionally installed? This way, you are certain they will function as you want them to.

Our engineers will take accurate measurements and discuss your particular requirements. We can also offer bespoke designs if what you need is not on our site. All our installations are planned, efficient and quick.

Keeping The Shop Front Shutter Doors Functioning

Shop owners may also want to look at the Mercian Doors service packages. We have designed these for our all shop front shutter doors. You get peace of mind your shutters will function for many years, as our experts can provide a report on your doors and suggest a maintenance package to keep them in full working order. Our team is available 24/7, every day of the week.

Further Considerations

These are an excellent choice for most shop front or business openings, but some businesses may require higher security or fire safety options. For those requiring this, an open mesh grille is not the answer. But, if that is the case, you may want to look at alternative roller shutter doors
