Benefits of the Nautilus System
The unique, patented design of the Nautilus Rolling Shutter System provides many new features and benefits; combined with increased strength and versatility, this shutter is in a class of its own.
The Nautilus is the most compact rolling shutter system in the industry! No other aluminum rolling shutter can match the extraordinarily compact housing sizes.
- 72″ unit height=6.0″ housing
- 144″ unit height=.7.0″ housing
- 168″ unit height=8.0″ housing
The smaller housing size is a tremendous advantage to maintain the aesthetics of any structure, especially residential homes and storefront applications. Due to the smaller housing size, the slats have a shorter distance to travel between the track and the center reel. This reduces deflection, friction and strain on the motor/gear.
The small diameter of the center reel, combined with the compact way the slats conform around each other, increases and maintains the optimum motor/gear/spring torque. Tracks are available with a snap cover for a finished look. This conceals the fasteners and provides additional security. It can also be used as a chase for a power cord.
The phenomenal strength and design load capacity of this system speaks for itself. The Nautilus system is ideal for residential, storefront, commercial, mid-rise and even high-rise applications.
- 96” Span = 160psf Concrete, 160psf Filled Block
- 144” Span = 106psf Concrete, 95psf Filled Block
- 192” Span = 77psf Concrete, 63psf Filled Block
- 240” Span = 55psf Concrete, 45psf Filled Block
This system may be small in size, but it’s huge in strength.
These shutters were tested for large missile impact and they are Florida Building Code approved for use in the HVHJZ zone as well as the Non HVHZ zones of the State of Florida.
Each set of blades is designed to wrap around the next, with the smooth edges of the blades making contact with each other. This eliminates abrasion and marring of the blade surfaces. The blades have an interlocking hinge point. This provides exceptional protection against impacts or forced entry; ideal for residential, storefront or commercial security.
This new system works perfectly with the use of balance springs. This neutralizes the weight of the shutter and allows for a smaller motor/gear, or even a hand operated unit. The hand operated units can be manually lifted and lowered and are equipped with a locking base slat. This eliminates the need and expense of a motor or gear.
