An alternative to traditional roller shutter barrels?

French manufacturer Deprat, through its UK distributor JDUK is launching a new barrel assembly that is specifically designed to be an alternative to the traditional 4” 16swg barrel for smaller industrial and commercial roller shutters.
Deprat and JDUK have a long association in the UK supplying the Deprat barrel assembly to Roller garage door manufacturers and wish to build on that success.

Several manufacturers of galvanised roller shutters currently use the Deprat system and have commented on the ease of manufacturing in comparison to the traditional method.
Harry Barker, Director of SGG commented: 
‘We had manufactured our Galvanised roller shutters from 4” 16 swg barrel for years and were quite happy to continue using it, as it is the market norm. However after trying the Deprat system our speed of production has increased significantly, as has our defect rate decreased. The Deprat system may cost a little more to start with, but in the end it saves us a meaningful amount of money – I for one wouldn’t go back to 4” 16 swg, it’s old hat!’
The system comprises a galvanised barrel, so no painting required, with a groove in the barrel that allows a fixing to be slid along the barrel to attach the curtain, then eliminating the need for welding. A variety of dummy end fixings are available to suit a safety brake or a standard bearing end.

Deprat also offer a patented spring system, that is tailor made for fine adjustment of balancing push up galvanised roller shutters. A simple to follow chart is offered to work out exactly which spring would be required to accurately balance the shutter. All sizes of spring and components are held at JDUK for immediate delivery nationwide.

For further details please contact Steve, Kevin, Pat or Andy for technical details, prices or just a small sample to see how it fits together.
