Storm & High Wind Pressure-Resistant Shutter

Global climate change has seen tropical storms occurring more frequently, often with greater intensity and ferocity.


In response, we developed the GLIDEROL Storm Shutter to help protect larger door openings and mitigate excessive damages that may be inflicted on your property by the destructive forces of powerful storms.

The GLIDEROL Storm Shutter was tested* for its capability to withstand pressures from wind speeds in excess of 200 km/h (125 mph), like those from severe storms such as Category 3 Hurricanes.


Experience Unmatched Wind Resistance with GLIDEROL Storm Shutters

Elevate your protection with GLIDEROL Storm Shutters, setting the standard for wind resilience. Unlike conventional shutters, our advanced design employs a horizontal lattice formation, ensuring superior defense against nature's forces.

Crafted with precision and innovation, our shutters feature double-walled cavity slats equipped with dual horizontal steel rods along their entire length. These rods, paired with steel double eyelets and cables, create an impenetrable barrier against even the strongest winds.

Step into a realm of reliability where your peace of mind is paramount. Our shutters don't rely on door jambs for support; they anchor securely to the floor and door barrel, providing steadfast protection in any scenario.

Choose confidence. Choose GLIDEROL Storm Shutters for unbeatable wind resistance and unmatched peace of mind.

At GLIDEROL, we've redefined wind resistance with our innovative shutter technology. Our shutters feature a meticulously engineered system designed to provide unparalleled stability and protection in the face of strong winds.

The top ends of our cables are securely fastened to the door barrel, while the bottom ends are expertly terminated into compression sleeves housed within our durable bottom shoes. Crafted from sturdy steel with recessed areas to engage floor plate restraints, our bottom shoes ensure a secure anchoring of the entire lattice formation to the floor.


Guided to move up and down in a straight line, our shutter curtain ensures that the bottom shoes seamlessly engage the floor plate restraints upon reaching the fully closed position. Combined with our cable links, this anchoring effect creates a pliable lattice formation akin to a flexible net, capable of cushioning, absorbing, and deflecting even the strongest wind forces.


With our symmetric curtain design, our shutters are equally effective against both positive and negative wind pressures. Unlike traditional shutters, our GLIDEROL Storm Shutter doesn't rely on door jamb integrity to resist wind loads. This unique feature enables it to withstand very high wind forces, regardless of door jamb type or construction.

Choose GLIDEROL Storm Shutters for lasting stability and unmatched wind resistance, ensuring your peace of mind even in the most severe storms.

Door Operation

Motor Drive

The door curtain consists of 80mm x 20mm thick double-walled steel roll-formed interlocking cavity slats reinforced with steel rods spanning the entire length of the slat. Proprietary steel double-eyelet structures shall be attached to each end of the steel rods to receive the restraining cables.

A pair of stainless-steel cables, a testament to our commitment to security, are threaded through the eyes of the eyelet structures on each side of the door curtain. One end of each cable is securely attached to the steel tube of the barrel assembly while the other terminates into compression sleeves that are housed within the respective sliding shoes.

Vertical guide posts on each side of the door will ensure that the door travels up and down in a straight line. Upon reaching the fully closed position, the sliding shoes will automatically engage the steel restraints on the floor plate, thus anchoring the bottom rail to the floor plate and preventing dislodgement under wind pressure.

The bottom slat is coupled to an aluminum profile base and fitted with a finned PVC weather seal. Attached to each end of the bottom slat are steel sliding ‘shoes’ that are part of the restraining mechanism. These shoes are connected to each other by steel rods spanning across the entire bottom slat.

The barrel assembly consists of an extremely rigid steel tube sheathed over a pair of drive shaft assemblies fitted to heavy duty bearing sets and supported at both ends by steel head plates. The drive shaft is a solid polished steel round bar incorporating key ways to accept the drive sprocket. Corresponding to the size of the shutter, the head plates are either 6mm or 8mm thick with shafts of either 38mm or 50mm diameter

The shutter incorporates its own structural support in the form of a ‘goal post’ formed by steel “C” channels. The entire drum assembly shall rest on the vertical members, with the end plates attached to the lintel for stability. Thus, the bulk of the shutter weight is transferred to the floor.

The removable guide covers are fabricated from steel sheets. They are bent and shaped to cover the edges of the door curtain and secured to the vertical shutter supports.

Note: The guide covers are non-structural and serve an aesthetic purpose only.

The drive unit consists of a suitably-sized linear drive motor operator mounted parallel to and behind the door roll. It has an integrated gearbox and a chain operated sheave wheel for manual operation in case of power failure. The control box is lockable, housing a set of push buttons for Up’, ‘Down’ and ‘Stop’ operations. The door operation shall automatically stop at the desired upper and lower limits via adjustable limit switches.


For safety reasons, the ‘DOWN’ button shall require the operator to push and hold when closing the shutter. This is to ensure the closing operation is being supervised. Upon sighting an obstruction, the operator will automatically release the push button by reflex. This action will instantly stop the downward travel of the shutter and prevent accidents.

Power supply shall be either Single Phase 230V x 15amp or 3-Phase 415V x 20amp, depending on the size of the shutter.
