The introduction of roller shutters has brought tremendous changes in the security and safety related issues, insulation and energy costs, aesthetic value, and many other aspects of the business premises. They are used extensively in commercial establishments. However, the use of roller shutters is not free from defects. As such, the new shutters in London are absolutely sound proof. The old shutters may start producing some noise with the passage of time due to wear and tear or any other reason.
What to do to reduce the noise from roller shutters?
The following tips can help with this:
1. Checking the damaged guides. This is because a small dent on the guides can produce noise.
2. Lubrication or greasing can work for some roller shutters by avoiding the contact of metal with metal.
3. Replacing the damaged slats as they reduce the life of roller shutters and cause noise beyond bearable limits.
4. The nylon slat clips can be aligned with intermediate slats leading to the creation of the gap between guides and slats and decrease the amount of noise produced.
All in all, the roller shutters are an excellent option for modern business establishments and paying attention towards their maintenance ensures their noise-free function.
