Extruded Guide and Bottom Bar
The guide is the section that the slat profile actually runs up and down in, and supports the shutter head box. The bottom bar is the section along the bottom of the shutter curtain (slats) which has the primary function of straightening the curtain. The guide and bottom bar sections of the roller shutter are extruded aluminium and coated with a unique finish to the shutter industry. This coating has been computer matched to the colour of the head box, and will be slightly different to the slat profile due to paint types.
Introducing the Dura Coat 5000 Series of architectural coatings. This system has been designed as a one-coat finish for extruded aluminium using electrostatic spray application. The Dura Coat DC5OOO-CX system is exclusive to our product in the roller shutter industry and carries a fifteen (15) year guarantee against fading.
The guide profile is approximately 76mm x 28mm and is designed with a hollow section on the outer side. This hollow allows for multiple fixing points as well as supporting the head box end plate. The bottom bar section has a cover size of approximately 56.4mm and is 10.3mm wide. This is a multi hollow extrusion that adds strength to the profile, while allowing the fixing of concealed bottom bar stoppers.
