FREE Measure & Quote

Advanced Shutter Industries' line of PROEX 40mm extruded aluminium profile roller shutters are amongst the strongest and most versatile roller shutter solutions available suitable for commercial and residential applications, including homes desiring stronger security roller shutters, and commercial shop front, shopping centre, shop window, retail outlet, servery, counter, bar, pub, hotel, kitchen, kiosk, cafe, restaurant, factory, and warehouse roller shutter applications.

They provide an excellent security barrier while maximising limited space - by rolling up and out of the way they provide an unobstructed passage way when open.

With a smaller profile than most commercial roller shutter products and a nominal wall thickness of 1.1mm, PROEX security roller shutters provide excellent protection.

PROEX is available in three types of profiles:

  • PROEX 1: Single wall 40mm extruded aluminium profile;
  • PROEX 2: Double wall 40mm extruded aluminium profile; and
  • PROEX 3: Single wall 40mm extruded aluminium profile with triangular punch-outs.

PROEX 1 and PROEX 2 roller shutter curtains can be optionally fitted with a number of PROEX 3 slats for ventilation, natural light, or visibility through the roller shutter. PROEX 3 extruded aluminium roller shutter slats can be optionally fitted with polycarbonate backing strips allowing natural light and visibility without ventilation.

Advanced Shutter Industries has been a manufacturer of roller shutters and roller grilles since 1976 and continues to offer some of the best products available in Australia today. Available direct from our factory in Belmore (Sydney) with a professional service at competitive prices.

Benefits of PROEX Roller Shutters


Protect your business from unwanted intruders

  • PROEX extruded aluminium roller shutters increase the security of your home or business and are a visible deterrent to would-be intruders.
  • PROEX extruded aluminium roller shutters feature a top locking system as standard for peace of mind, and when the installations permit, manual sliding locks. Top locks are automatically activated when the roller shutter is fully lowered while manual sliding locks allow you to lock the shutter for extra security.
  • The strong interlocking construction of PROEX extruded aluminium roller shutters resists objects being forced between the slats.
  • Extra wide and extra thick heavy duty roller shutter guides, available as optional extras on Advanced Shutter Industries roller shutters, provide a wider and more rigid channel for added security and strength against attack.
  • Winged security end clips, available as optional extras on Advanced Shutter Industries roller shutters fitted with extra wide and extra thick heavy duty roller shutter guides, firmly hold slats in place, significantly reduce the possibility of slats being popped out of their guides and prevent unwanted deflection. This combination is one of the strongest residential roller shutter solutions available.

Controls and Operation of PROEX Roller Shutters


PROEX extruded aluminium roller shutters are simple to use and operate with a variety of manual and electric motor controlled lifting mechanisms available, giving you full control over your environment. Operation, opening and closing, locking and unlocking is customised to your needs so you choose how and where you want to open and close your PROEX extruded aluminium roller shutters, whether it is from the inside, outside, both inside and outside, via keylock, hasp and staple, electric key switch or radio remote control.


Electric Motor roller shutter lifting mechanism

The most convenient way to open and close roller shutters is to opt for the electric motor option. A range of electric tubular motors and accessories are available from Advanced Shutter Industries for roller shutters which includes:

  • 240V mains powered tubular electric motors for roller shutters operated by hand-held radio remote control;
  • 240V mains powered tubular electric motors for roller shutters operated by a wall switch or keyed wall switch;
  • Group controls to simultaneously operate a number of electric roller shutters with a single switch;
  • Wind and rain sensors and timers to automatically open or close your electric roller shutters;
  • Back-up power for 240V mains powered electric roller shutters via Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), so in a power outage you can still open or close your roller shutters;
  • Free-wheeling safety clutch to avoid roller shutter damage if an obstruction is encountered while closing the roller shutter; and
  • Manual Override mechanisms as a safeguard to allow manual opening and closing of your roller shutters in case of a power outage.

Electric tubular motors for roller shutters are suitable for all roller shutters sizes all the way up to 250kg in weight.


Swivel coiler roller shutter lifting mechanism

The swivel coiler strap roller shutter lifting mechanism is a popular choice offering the fastest way to open and close roller shutters. Just grasp the strap and pull down to raise the roller shutter, or grasp and feed the strap upwards to lower the roller shutter. The strap neatly coils away into the swivel coiler box. Swivel coilers are also available with a cord instead of the strap. Swivel coilers are suitable for small to medium roller shutters with a weight up to 12kg.


Geared Winch roller shutter lifting mechanism

The geared winch roller shutter lifting mechanism has a removable handle used to manually crank to raise and lower the roller shutter. Simply turn the handle clockwise to raise the roller shutter and anti-clockwise to lower the roller shutter. Geared winches attach to the roller shutter by cord, braided strap or steel cable. Various geared winch models are available for roller shutter weights up to 80kg.


Rod Winder roller shutter lifting mechanism

The rod winder roller shutter lifting mechanism has a rod which is manually cranked to raise and lower the roller shutter. Simply turn the handle one way to raise the roller shutter and the other way to lower the roller shutter. Rod winder roller shutter lifting mechanisms are suitable for roller shutters weighing up to 30kg.


Spring assist lifting mechanism

Roller shutters fitted with an assist spring as the lifting mechanism allow the roller shutter curtain to be physically raised and lowered by hand. The assist spring balances the weight of the roller shutter curtain and makes lifting and lowering the roller shutter easier and safer. Spring assist lifting mechanisms are suitable for roller shutters starting from 1.0 m wide. For commercial roller shutters wider than 2.7 m fitting a second assist spring is highly recommended to avoid axle torsion and ensure even lifting. In any case, we recommend use of an electric motor for roller shutters weighing more than 60 kg or wider than 3.0 m.
