FALL PROTECTION 

From mid-2020, ALUKON front-mounted roller shutters can be equipped with a glass fall protection system. With this feature, we are providing a visually appealing fall protection solution for floor-to-ceiling window doors that is not noticeable. To achieve this, a 16 mm LSG glass panel is inserted and fixed in an additional groove in the guide rail behind the roller shutter curtain by the customer.

The discreet glass edge protection is coated in the same colour as the rail and blends into the overall appearance of the facade in a harmonious manner. The glass fall protection allows an unobstructed view to the outside and no additional fixing points on the facade are required. The fastening for the robust multi-part guide rails on the window is concealed.

When the roller shutter is closed, the fall protection system is no longer visible from the outside, which achieves a uniform appearance in the facade area.

ALUKON fall protection is suitable for floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as multi-leaf windows made
of PVC, wood, wood/aluminium and aluminium. All ALUKON roller shutter profiles and all extruded box shapes can be used. When installing the fall protection, it is also possible to insulate the back of the roller shutter box.
