Winters in New York City can get tough. And to open a commercial use roller shutter which is not motor-operated using the chain system can be a nightmare. Winter months are the months we get the most calls for shutter opener (operator) installation and repairs. And the reason is that using the chain to open or close the shutter can become impossible. However many people assume that it is better to install the shutter, and in the future to add the electric motor. In some cases they might be right, but it is not always like that. The installation of a motor-operated shutter is different than the installation of a a shutter which will be operated manually. And it is always to plan ahead. So if you are thinking about motorize your roller shutter in the future, let the specialist know that, so he can make the preparations, and install a shutter in a way that will leave the option to motorize the shutter open.
Each shutter require different motor. No one will expect a central opener for a push shutter which is being used once a day, to fit a parking lot roller shutter which is being used 100 times a day. Each shutter require a different motor, and a qualified shutter specialist should be able to determine which one is the best opener for a particular shutter. The size of the shutter (Which affect the weight of the shutter), together with the materials that the roll up door was made of (Some roll-down shutters in New York City are made from Aluminum and they are much lighter than the solid insulated heavy duty shutters). Before installing new opener for a roller shutter, ask yourself few questions that will help you make the right decision.
Things you need to know and questions need to be answered when installing a new opener for rolling door in New York:
How often the roll up door in New York will be used.
Will the shutter will be installed with the opener at the same time (Recommended).
What kind of shutter I am planning to install (Solid, grill, insulated).
Do I need remote control/s (Some shutter in New York operated with remotes).
Do I need a key switch?
What is my budget for the new shutter opener installment?
The Right Operator Each roll-down door need the right operator for it. A opener that will work for a storefront roll up door in the Bronx, will not be the right opener for a parking lot rolling shutter in Staten Island. Make sure that you are choosing the right opener for the door, and avoid problems in the future.
Before we start, one thing need to be clear: Not every opener can be repaired, and even if it can be repaired, it is not always worth it. Sometime replacing the unit and install a new opener will be the best decision. People tend to assume that repairing is always the cheapest option. So we would like to tell you something, repairing the opener is not always the cheapest option, nor the safest one. A opener that broke in a way that damaged the way it operate will never be as strong as it used to be. And we had many cases where the opener broke, and the client refused to replace it and insisted on fixing it. We refused since we knew what was coming, and we were always right. At the end the opener did break.
