In lintel roller shutter systems, the box into which the roller shutter retracts sits in the lintel, making it invisible from the outside and therefore does not disturb the aesthetics of the building. The curtain visually extends straight into the guides from the wall, which also improves the performance of the lintel roller shutter, as the thermal insulation of the building extends over the roller shutter itself. This eliminates the risk of a weak point forming in the cold protection system.
Depending on the chosen system, lintel roller shutters can employ curtains from PVC or polyurethane foam-filled aluminium. In most cases, both options are available for customers. These solutions are excellent at absorbing ambient noise and are also effective at dampening interior sounds. This provides acoustic comfort for building users, which is a valuable addition to the basic functionality of roller shutters.
The curtains of lintel roller shutters have been constructed to provide an additional thermal barrier for the building. This means that their implementation improves the technical parameters of the windows used in terms of thermal insulation. Installing lintel roller shutters means that the effective thermal transmittance coefficient will be lower, which will translate into a reduction in heating bills.
The sight of lintel roller shutters can be an effective deterrent against attempts to break into a building through a window. This makes them an excellent foundation for adequate burglary protection. The feeling of security can be significantly improved by using mechanisms that make it difficult to raise the curtain of the roller shutter. These include, for example, automatic bolts and locking hangers. Thieves avoid well-secured houses.
