How Big Are Roller Shutter Boxes?

Last updated on



Roller shutters have come a long way in recent years however, many people often overlook them as they believe them to be a bulky, obtrusive, and even ugly addition to their home. The reality is that when you work with the right roller shutter company, you will discover slimline options available that will ensure a sleek, seamless, and sophisticated result. Read on to find out more.

The NSS Range – Smoother And More Slim Line Than Ever

At Nu Style Shutters, we have purposely sourced a slim line European designed 40mm profile for our range, and when paired with a 60mm octagonal aluminium axel and patented round reducers, we are able to fit our shutters into smaller boxes than other companies. This slimline finish increases the amount of open space, light and ventilation you receive when the box is fitted in reveal and decreases the overall size of the box you see from outside your home.

Refer To The Below Table

The first column is the box size – the height of the box is determined by the overall height of the opening.

The second column shows the maximum size a shutter can be in the appropriate box size.

The third column shows other brands.

What does this all mean?

In WA, standard sliding and laundry doors are 2140mm high, this means a Nu Style shutter would have a 180mm box, while other brands would have a 205mm box. This larger size makes the opening 25mm lower and can often feel too close to the head of people as they walk through. These sizes can also determine how much light, view and ventilation is blocked out when installing a shutter in reveal.

Why is a Smaller Shutter Box Important?

Having a smaller shutter box on door openings is important if the door is frequently used, members of your family are tall or if the door is potentially the entry to your business. 25mm can make a significant difference to the feeling of ‘ducking’ as you go through the openings, just as the 150mm box can also make a difference when installing a roller shutter over a short highlight window.
