Top-mounted roller shutter system is a product addressed to those, who look for functional solutions. SKT OPOTERM-based roller shutters are intended for both newly constructed and refurbished buildings (replacement of windows). This on-window mounted system has its box direct installed on the window frame by means of an appropriate profile. These profiles are compatible with the majority of window and door frame profiles (aluminium, wooden & PVC). Boxes are made of high quality PVC components and are characterised by an increased thermal insulation. Aluprof’s SKT Opoterm top-mounted roller shutter system has received a thermal transmittance-related certificate from the renowned research centre IFT Rosenheim. The roller-boxes were tested using EPS (Neopor, thermal insulation material) – the tests were based on the current standards and calculation methods. The product demonstrated a very good thermal transmittance performance, e.g. the SKT 230/170 box with integrated insect screen obtained a Usb coefficient of 0.73 W / (m²K) while maintaining high operability to shadow larger glazed areas. The system is also available with narrow channels made of extruded aluminium for maxi and mini profiles to allow additional frame insulation in order to minimize heat loss.
On customer's demand, the top-mounted system SKT Opoterm can be equipped with an insect screen, built-in the roller-box (MOSKITO). This integrated system makes the roller shutter and the insect screen work independently.
Owners who want to make their roller shutter a decorative element can leave the roller box unintegrated and to make the visible elements colour-match the window frame – this can be done using roller boxes made of extruded aluminium. For buildings with very thin walls, where the integration is not an option, there is a possibility to use the variant with a rounded, side profile. This is a very aesthetically pleasing solution that will match any interior. This is also a very common solution on the French market.
In addition, SKT OPOTERM system can use profiles with polyurethane foam and PVC.
