Roller Shutters: Manual or Motorised

Posted on May 24, 2018 at 7:23 pm

It’s a big question you must ask yourself when you’re deciding on installing roller shutters. Are you going to opt for manual or electric operation?


With manual operation you don’t have to worry about batteries or signal problems because there are no remote controls or buttons. This is a good option for those who just want a simple solution for their property, which is easy to maintain.


Motorisation is all about making it easy to open and close the shutters and it means you don’t have to worry about a member of the team not locking up properly, because they literally have to press a button!

Both of these options are good but the decision is down to you. Think carefully about how often you use the doors and whether motorisation will be important. If not, why not save a little money and choose manual operation.
