Aluminium rolling shutters, foamed or extruded: these are the differences
There are 2 main branches of aluminium rolling shutters on the market, in particular shutters with insulated slats which consists of slats made with pre-painted coils with polyurethane inside. These shutters can guarantee mainly thermal insulation. The other category is the one of shutters with extruded slats which have higher thickness and without insulation and are mainly chosen for safety reasons.
Aluminium insulated rolling shutters (with polyurethane) are the most common on the market. They consist of slats which are produced with aluminium pre-painted coils of different thickness (it varies from 0,25mm to 0,48 mm). The polyurethane is injected inside the slat.
There two kinds of injection: normal density (it is softer, around 65 kg/cubic meter) and high density (it is harder around 300 kg/ cubic meter).
High density rolling shutters are of more performing because the shutters can get less damaged and is more resistant against hail.
They are also very light ( shutter’s weight around 4kg/m2).
Rolling shutters in extruded aluminium (not injected) have a higher aluminium thickness and are heavier (an average of 10 kg/m2)
They are normally recommended for protecting against robbery and intrusions and owing to their weight they are always installed with tubular motors.
