Nowadays, the motorization shutter attracts more and more home and shop owners. This is only natural given the many advantages it offers in terms of comfort and safety. However, for all those who wish to embark on such a project, it is good to know that not all shutters are motorizable. Indeed, some types of shutters are particularly difficult, even impossible to motorize. Before considering installing a damper actuator, it is therefore advisable to find out in advance and check whether or not the dampers can be motorized. The development that follows tells you all about it.
What are the types of motorized shutters?
There are two main types of shutter remote control kit depending on the opening mode. First of all, there is what is called a roller shutter. It is the most commonly used model and its opening is made by winding up. The second type, on the other hand, is called swinging shutter and consists of one or more leaves hinged on hinges. While the first type of shutter (roller shutter) is generally easy to motorize, the flap shutter requires certain conditions to be motorized. Above all, it must operate freely and without friction. The maximum thickness required is also 36 mm and the distance to the window or French window must be greater than 150 mm.
How to motorize your roller shutters or shutters?
To motorize a roller shutter consists above all in placing a motor in order to generate the movements which will allow the automatic opening or closing of the shutter. However, the long range rf remote control system is not the same when you are in front of a roller shutter or a flap.
For a roller shutter: the motorization includes a cylinder-shaped motor which is placed in a tube. This will then be inserted into the roller shutter winding axis so that it can be opened or closed automatically.
For a swing shutter: here, the motorization consists of a motor block placed under the window lintel and which actuates one or two arms in order to engage the opening or closing of the shutter.
It is good to know that there are two types of system for damper drives. First there is the wired model, which uses a wall button to open and close the shutter. Then there is the wireless model that uses a remote control to perform this or that action.
