DuraShutter – An all-season blend
of strength and style.

New Zealand’s first fully tested and certified roller shutter door meet and exceed the wind load requirements of AS/NZS4505:2012.


A raging southerly making rapid landfall off the Cook Strait is no match for the DuraShutter, New Zealand’s first wind rated roller shutter door.


Fully tested and certified, and up to date with current building code legislation, meeting the  requirements of AS/NZS4505:2012, the DuraShutter is the obvious choice when selecting a roller door for building in exposed locations.


Believed to be the strongest guide system available, winds of up to 200kph could be howling outside, yet the DuraShutter remains uncompromising.


Manufactured in New Zealand, your insurer will appreciate the added security and durability of the DuraShutter, and staff will enjoy the added safety.
