Australian shutter manufacturer Shutterflex offers cyclone rated Federation shutters that can stand up to the elements regardless of weather conditions.
Shutterflex’s Federation shutters come with engineering certification for storm-prone locations all over Australia including Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Darwin, Magnetic Island, Airlie Beach, Port Douglas, Mackay, and Cairns. The adjustable blade panels of the Federation range went through independent structural product testing by Uniquest Pty Ltd at the University of Queensland, with the test confirming the ability of the shutters to sustain the wind load required by AS 1170.2-1989.
Shutterflex’s CycloneSafe roller shutters are also rated for cyclone-prone areas and have been rigorously tested for their ability to meet the demands of cyclonic winds and protect windows, interiors and occupants from winds, rain, and flying debris.
Tested by James Cook University, the CycloneSafe roller shutter is cyclone rated up to C4 T5 and complies with AS/NZS 1170.2 2011 Cyclone Standard. Professional product testing proved these shutters can be used in all Australian cyclone regions including Cyclone Region C & D C4 at 1500mm wide.
The CycloneSafe roller shutters also have a Cyclic loading tested by AS 4040.3 and a Fatigue Loading Sequence and design pressure tested by AS 4055.
