Rhino Security Shutter Specifications

Installation options

Internal

The security shutters can be installed into window reveals or floor-to-ceiling. The frames and tracks can be face or top-fixed to allow for outside recess or inside recess fitting.

The minimum reveal depth is 90mm to allow for the louvres to tilt and the door panels to bifold.

External

As Rhino shutters are made of aluminium and stainless steel, they are suitable for external applications without fear of rusting. External installation provides first-stage security and superior temperature control. They can be installed to windows, entrance, patio and bifold doors.

Shutter weight

Rhino Shutters weigh 14kg per metre sq. compared to 10 kg/ metre sq. for MDF wood shutters.

Louvres

The louvres are available in 89mm only. They can be tilted even when the door panels are securely locked for variable shading and privacy.

When closed the louvres are water-resistant from the tilt-rod side.
Louvre screws allow the louvres to be tensioned to a desired rigidity for manual tilting. A patented system holds the louvres in place even if they are damaged or vandalised.

Tilt rods

Hidden tilt rods only are available.

The tilt rods can be split allowing a section of the louvres to be open whilst another section remains closed. Mid-rails are not required due to the inherent strength of the aluminium and steel construction. The minimum split is eight louvres from the bottom of the panel, within a 50mm range of the given height measured from bottom of panel.

Colours

The aluminium is powder-coated in white (similar to silk white) or brown as standard, RAL colour powder- coating available. The louvre ends are in matching colours.

Frames

There are two styles available. A bifold top and bottom track system, or cottage-style four- sided or three-sided frame.

Bifold

The shutter panels are suspended from a top track hinged together in a bi-fold configuration to allow them to be folded back to either end of the tracks at 90o. The bottom track can be recessed into the floor or window sill, or installed on the top of the base. Side covers can be added.

They are suitable for use with windows or patio doors.

The track cannot be lifted out due to a patented runner.

The top track comes in three formats:

  • With lip
  • Without lip
  • Face fix. The bottom track is available in two formats: – Recessed – Raised Cottage style. Three or four-sided frame which allows the door panels to fold back against the wall. With the three-sided frame lock-plates are used on the base for the locks to reside in.RunnersLong pins to allow for changeable heightsPanelsMinimum width per panel 300mm, Maximum width per panel 900mmMinimum height per panel Cottage style 574 mm and Bi-fold style 650mm, Maximum height per panel 3,000mm (not limited by hidden tilt rod)

    Maximum number of panels hinged together = 6.
    Pivot – left, right, floating
    Configurations available: L, R, LL, RR, LR, LLR, LRR, LLRR, LLLRR, LLRRR, LLLRRR Rails

    By default the factory determines the rail size for each order (and therefore the number of louvres), unless specified otherwise in the notes on the order form. Different rail sizes can be requested though the combination of a fixed overall panel drop and louvre size means that it may not always be technically possible to fulfil every custom rail request.

    Stile

    Butt stiles only

Hinges

The hinges cannot be knocked out or removed even if the ends are ground off due to roll-pin design.

Hinge colour to match (white, brown or powder coated to RAL colour)

Hinges are provided depending on the configuration. They are pre-mounted on panels and frames by two screws in the slotted holes. The screw for the third rest hole should be installed at installation. The hinge pins are not removable.

For external applications, reverse hinges can be specified. The tilt rods should be facing outwards only so to bifold the shutters externally use reverse hinges.

Pivot

The panel that pivots does not need locks in it if it is connected in a bifold pattern to another panel.

Lock

To lock – remove the key and retain safely, rotate the daisy wheel to raise the lock bolts to their maximum then turn the lock catch to the horizontal position. The lock bolts cannot now be lowered.

To unlock – insert key and rotate, the lock catch will release to the vertical position and the daisy wheel can be turned to lower the lock bolts.

N.B. The daisy wheel is purposely made of plastic as this is inherently weaker than the steel lock. Therefore any vandalism will only be able to damage and remove the daisy wheel which is easily replaced.

The lock bolts have an extra-long throw compared to a normal door lock and are made of steel.

It is a CISA lock system with a C2000 Euro Profile Cylinder. This conforms to European Norm EN1303:2005.

  • Key related security: Grade 4
  • Durability: Grade 6
  • Reliability:100 000 Duty cycles
  • Double cylinder available.
  • The keys are made of Nickel plated brass. 3

Each set of keys is unique to each order, but standardised across the order for each lock (keyed alike). The five-pin biting system produces over 30,000 key differs.

Keys can be matched to previous orders if lost at a cost of £5 per key.
