Rollac’s Selection of Automated Shutters

Whether you’re considering replacing your large manual shutters with something with automation, Rollac can make this transition seamless. From heavy-duty, hurricane-rated shutters for your business to residential shutters or awnings that transform your backyard patio into a luxurious oasis, we have a style that will suit your needs. For over 40 years, Rollac has been helping our customers select the most suitable rolling shutter for their unique needs. 

Roller shutters with automation systems can provide many benefits.

Benefits for Commercial Spaces 

For example, if you own a pharmacy, investing in several automated shutters for security is an excellent way to protect your business overnight or when it’s closed on weekends. 

Or let’s say you’re a gas station owner in an area of the country prone to tornados or hurricanes. Installing motorized commercial shutters around your gas station is one of the most effective ways to prevent post-storm looting. This additional level of security may not only dissuade robbers but may help lower your regular insurance costs and protect your business from storm damage.

Rollac even has a unique ShopGuard shutter automation system. It’s designed to protect your storefront while allowing customers to do a little window shopping after regular business hours.  This high-visibility rolling shutter also deters thieves from breaking into your shop if seen from the street by passersby.

Benefits for Homes and Residential Applications

Whether you’re considering investing in automated shutters for your primary or secondary residence, such as a lakefront cabin or beachside home, there’s a style and design to meet your needs.

Home automation shutters can provide your space with some much-needed privacy from the prying eyes of your neighbors. If you’re considering automation for an outdoor patio or deck,  this could keep other unwanted visitors at bay, such as insects, birds, and other animals that might decide to pull up a comfortable seat and join you.

Rollac’s variety of rolling shutters includes ones specifically designed to withstand hurricanes. We also have other roller shutters with automation that offer solar protection for your home, preventing the sun’s harmful UV rays from fading artwork, furniture, and the inside.


How You Can Operate Your Shutters

Remote Control

Imagine sitting in your favorite chair under a blanket in your den when the sun starts shining in your eyes, disturbing your restful state. The last thing you want to do is get up to adjust your home’s retractable shutters. 

However, if you have residential shutters with automation, a simple remote control press will prevent you from being disturbed. Your rolling shutters automation system will provide shade and keep your den from overheating.

Smart Shutters

If you are a business owner who needs to lower your shutters while busy with other tasks or a homeowner at the office who wants to lower them at your beachfront home after learning of a heavy wind advisory, Rollac Smart shutters make shutter adjustments quick and easy. 

The Rollac MyLink app lets you control everything from window coverings and awnings to shades or automatic roof shutters from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet. Once downloaded to your mobile device, the MyLink app will allow you complete control over all your Rollac products.

With this rolling shutter automation design, you’ll enjoy energy savings, maximum convenience, and tremendous peace of mind. Your smart shutters will be a valuable investment in your home or business.

Security Switches

A good advantage of installing a roller shutter automation system is for security. If you want to increase it, you can use various security switches to provide additional protection for your business or home once Rollac rolling shutters are installed. 

For example, if you own an electrical supply company and your warehouse is full of costly equipment that, if stolen, could plummet you into severe financial trouble. The first step in securing your investment should be installing automated shutters for your electrical business.

The second step should involve preventing access to your warehouse using keypads, card switches, or turnkey switches. That way, you’ll enjoy peace of mind, knowing only those you trust can access the security codes required to raise or lower your shutters. This can be very important in an emergency where time and safety are essential.

Wall Switch

Similar to a standard wall switch for lighting, roller shutter automation can be controlled with the flick of a wall switch. This is the simplest and least expensive type of rolling shutter automation. The wall switch lets you control one shutter or a group of them, whichever works best for you.

Manual Operation

Finally, a manual operation system is also available if operating a roller shutter motor is simply too much. This type of covering made from solid and durable materials is just as effective at protecting your equipment rental business from theft or hurricanes as its motorized cousins. You can select from manual control options such as a crank box operator, crank handle, or tape drive.

Automation and Innovation

There are many factors to consider when shopping for rolling shutter automation systems for your business or home. 

With over 40 years of experience in the industry, we are proud to offer a wide variety of innovative styles of automation for your roller shutters, in addition to the knowledge and expertise needed to help you make the most suitable choice for your unique situation.
