Regardless of whether they are a big or small investment, roller shutter doors cost money. Although the prime objective of these formidable steel structures is to provide maximum security, their multifunctional aspects make them a worthwhile investment. However, roller shutter doors require regular maintenance to keep up their efficiency and workability.
It is very important that roller shutter doors are up to the mark at all times, because they are protecting both people and property. Standard regulations in many countries demand the proper maintenance of roller shutters for the following reasons:
Roller shutter repair and maintenance do not require rocket science. There are many ways to do it. Businesses can opt for professionals to do the job, as they are experienced in doing the repair task without any hassles. Skilled technicians can guide users regarding effective maintenance procedures that ensure optimal operation.
Here are maintenance tips that will extend the lifespan of roller shutter doors.
Once the shutters are installed, they should be cleaned at least once a month. It is highly appreciable if the user has them cleaned once in a fortnight. The doors must be given a thorough wipe-down. All the debris and dirt that’s collected in the tracks can be manually swept away, although a high-power vacuum cleaner will do an excellent job. Accumulation of debris will eventually lead to malfunctioning of the shutter. A damp cloth is more than enough, but if the shutters are hosed down, they must be thoroughly wiped with a dry cloth.
Repairs and maintenance must never be overlooked no matter how minor the issue. A monthly or bi-monthly check-up will reveal minor damages and problems that can be immediately dealt with. When these issues are ignored, a minor fault will eventually become a major headache that will cause unnecessary expenses and loss.
In due course of time, shutters will require new parts such as bolts and other fixings that wear out due to consistent usage. Worn out parts can actually make the shutters dangerous, because there is no saying when they will come sliding down with tremendous speed. Keeping on top of repairs is very important and it is always better to seek professional help.
It is important to remember that all roller shutters are made of metals, and that includes most of their components too. Keeping them well-oiled is the best way to ensure that shutters do not get stuck halfway. Rollers, guide rails, bearings and screws must be well-lubricated with industrial lubricating oil. Oil keeps away rust that will deteriorate the functioning efficiency of the entire shutter.

Most manufacturers offer roller shutters in a wide choice for colours. The paint serves a dual purpose- it provides an aesthetic look and it increases the durability of the shutter. An extra coating of weather-proof paint goes a long, long way. Subjected to the extremities of weather, the paint will peel off, but it can always be repainted to look as good as new.
