Shutter System

Strong and Compact

Traditional roll shutters require a large 10"-12" (250 mm - 300 mm) housing, ruining the style and look of your home. Now, with the Qompact shutter system, an 84" (2,1 m) tall opening will require only a compact 6" (150 mm) housing. That is 40- 50% smaller, creating a much more appealing installation.

Smooth and Quiet

The Qompact® shutter system is available in manual and automatic operation. Using the patented nested design, the Qompact shutter system rolls smoothly and quietly. 6/6 nylon bushings allow the shutter to glide smoothly through the security guides.

Shutter System

Strong

Qompact combines premium design with unparalleled strength. The single-walled, extruded slats withstand sledge hammer impacts and hurricane impact tests.

In head-to-head tests, Qompact outperformed its foam-filled competitors every single time.

In impact testing, Qompact withstood 82 punches, 5 kicks, and 80 hits with a sledge hammer. The foam-filled shutter was destroyed in seconds.

End Retention

End retention screws (shown below) keep the curtain captive in the rails. Qompact curtains can't be pried out with crowbars or pushed out of the rails due to high winds.

Note: Qompact
can also be
made without
end retention
where smaller
siderails are sufficient.

Qompact's end retention prohibits the curtain from being pushed out of the rails. Without end retention, the 40mm foamfilled curtain was easily compromised.

Hinge Strength

The improved slat design is 27-times stronger than a perforated 40mm slip hinge, making a Qompact shutter impenetrable by comparison.

Hurricane Tested

Qompact shutters meet the strict standards for U.S. Florida (FBC) hurricane approvals. In fact, Qompact passed with 330 km/h (200 mph) winds up to 6000mm (19.5 ft) wide.

Note: Widths >12' may require a larger box size.

Elegant Design and Engineered Excellence

What makes the Qompact shutter system unique is the 10 different slat sizes that have been ingeniously engineered to allow the slats to nest tightly with each other. The nesting allows for virtually zero space between the slats, creating a compact roll and the smallest box housing required. Each slat grouping has a specific radius designed to accommodate the ever increasing roll diameter. This proprietary design means that each slat rolls together - perfectly.

Residential Shutters

Home owners will love the quiet operation, elegant design, and security of Qompact.

In addition to privacy and sun shading, Qompact uniquely provides security and hurricane protection.

Commercial Shutters

Qompact can be built both wider and taller than foam-filled shutters, making it the perfect choice for commercial applications.

These shutters are widely used in the United States for their loss prevention and design benefits. Commercial shutters can be perforated for night time merchandising.

Shutter Controls

Qompact's Torsion Spring Assist Control Systems

Qompact has a non-slip hinge, which allows for the use of a torsion spring inside the tube opposite the control mechanism.

Manual & Motorized Shutter Controls

Our trained specialists walk you through the step-by-step selection process for designing the correct rolling shutter for your home.

Manual Strap

A manual pull strap can be used on larger shutter sizes since the weight of the shutter is neutralized. The spring provides a counterbalance resulting in the shutter locking in the down position.

Manual Gear

The spring assist neutralizes the weight and enables gear operation for larger shutters and requires less effort to rotate the hand crank.
 up to 6,5 sq meters

Manual Push-Up / Pull Down

Where most shutters require motors, the Qompact spring-operated shutter allows for push up/pull down operation. This saves on both shutter and electrical costs. Large spring-operated shutters are useful for entry doors, as egress (life safety) issues are not a concern. Simple base-lath locks enable security, but allow for escape during fire or power failures. Spring operation is available up to 13 sq meters without motors or gears.

Solar Powered Operation

Enjoy energy savings from a roller shutter that does not add to your energy cost. Because of its spring-loaded tube, Qompact requires less power for operation. This makes it possible to operate Qompact with a solar-powered battery.

Motorized with Line Voltage (220v)

The torsion spring allows for smaller motors and extends motor life. It also acts as a safety feature that prohibits a failed motor to allow a shutter curtain to free-fall.
  up to 19 sq meters w/tube motors
  up to 30 sq meters w/external motors

Hz/RTS Remote Control

  Available in single and multi-channel applications
  No need to aim the control at the motorized window covering, the radio signal travels through the walls similar to a grage door opener.
  Provides the ability to control motorized window coverings individually and/or by group with one control.
