The winter period is more challenging than usual for our roller shutters, putting their quality to the test.
One of the problems that influence the operation of roller shutters is their freezing.
It may be caused by weather conditions or inadequate ventilation of rooms where humidity is high.
We have no influence on the vagaries of the weather, temperature change, rainfall or snowfall, so roller shutters freeze independently from us.
In order to minimize the risk of roller shutters being blocked by frost, we should stick to a few simple rules:
A roller shutter blocked by frost may not function smoothly or emit strange sounds. Then we should not attempt to lower or raise the roller shutter by force, pulling the cord or overburdening the motor, or otherwise we may damage the roller shutter and the motor.
In such a case, we may try and unfreeze the icy spots with hot airflow, e.g. from a hair dryer.
For more information see the Operation and Maintenance Guide for Roller Shutters.
