Span Tables

Aluminium Plantation Shutters for Sliders or Fixed Panels (Hinged panels are size/weight specific and may show hinge sag if over span, thereby requiring standard riser cap to bottom leading edge)

This span table simply describes the recommended max length of blade for shutter panels. Please send us an email drawing or sketch of a proposal involving Spandrel Beams, Pergolas, Sun Awnings and we will calculate your Loading and Span design limit.

Natural beauty of timber Available Raw or Danish Oiled.

  • Tracks shall be mounted directly to ceilings or window head soffit or by bracket to walls as required by on site conditions.
  • To ensure ease of operation, the track shall be installed so that when louvre blades are rotated perpendicular to the track axis, the edge of the blade shall be positively spaced by approx. 15mm from the screened surface or any obstructions.
  • Each complete system of blades, tracks and operation mechanisms shall be fabricated in arrangements of stacking and control points, in the position, and to the measurements scheduled. Correct dimensions shall be taken from site.
  • The system shall be capable of imparting 170° to each louvre blade with precise synchronization and ease of operation.
  • The louvre blades shall hang on carriers held within the head channel. The carriers shall glide along within the track on rolling wheels, or other suitable mechanism, to ensure a smooth and consistent traversing of the blades.

 

Integrity of Materials used in our products

We offer a variety of blade profiles in Aluminium ranging from 45mm to 600mm sizes. Aluminium provides a sense of security and durability for either indoors or outdoors and can be used in a wide variety of applications from standard shutters to privacy screens, sun awnings and roofing systems. They come in a range of 80 high impact powder coat colour or can be marine grade anodized. The Classic 90 Blade profile is the most popular residential choice as it suits many opening configurations both indoor and out. Although there is a tendency towards interior installations as hard window furnishing, there is a new and greater awarness of the sensibility to attach Shutters to the exterior to combat heat gain and insulation efficiencies.

The integrity of paint build and adhesion should not be under estimated. Its not worth debating the comparisons of lacquers on wood or wet paints on other surfaces when Powder Coat is considered such reliable high standard coating. 7 year standard warranty on Adhesion and Gloss factor on all our Aluma range

All blades and frame profiles are constructed from Architectural Grade heat tempered Aluminium. All sections of frame and blades across our entire range are double or triple wall construction resulting in highly engineered designs capable of wide spans, low deflection and high load capacities. A painted Aluminium Shutter is far superior to a wood shutter in construction, durability, paint hardness and expectation of life cycle.

High traffic ability shutters are well suited to Commercial, Hospitality and public access installations. Our Aluma Series Shutters are available in Live Load, Human Impact and Cyclone rated versions. Our design of Aluminium Shutters look exactly the same as our Cedar profiles.

We use only stainless Steel or High Strength polymer components to construct our shutters. No rust, no failure. Just wash it down with soapy water as you would clean your car.
