External roller shutters are still an extremely practical but underrated solution. In unfavourable weather conditions, they form a barrier which effectively protects the interiors from heat loss. In summer, on the other hand, they provide excellent protection against overheating of interiors, at the same time limiting the use of air-conditioning devices and thus reducing building operating costs. The roller blind installed in accordance with the system provider's guidelines also has very good acoustic properties, which makes it possible to significantly reduce the perception of noise from outside. Roller blind systems offered by GM PLAST can additionally be integrated with a mosquito net, which guarantees effective protection of rooms against insects. In addition, a suitably selected system of external roller blinds can provide protection against burglary.

Roller shutter curtains most often consist of profiles made of high-quality aluminium sheet filled with foam, with a special two-layer PU/PA varnish coating. This makes them highly resistant to abrasion and weathering. More rigid and stable profiles made of extruded aluminium and plastic profiles are also available, depending on the chosen system. A wide range of colours makes it possible to match roller shutters to any façade.

GM PLAST offers external roller shutters in the following systems - surface, overlay, flush and lintel.

1. Exposed roller shutters - also known as façade roller shutters, standard roller shutters

As their name suggests, such roller shutters are the most basic and also the most popular product in this category. They can be installed at any time on the façade of a building, in a window or door recess. It is an ideal solution for residents of blocks of flats, who cannot afford large interferences in the building structure. What can be seen as a disadvantage is the roller shutter box clearly visible above the window. Fortunately, the boxes are increasingly available in different shapes and colours, which helps to improve the aesthetics.

  • Exterior surface-mounted roller shutters - Surface-mounted roller shutters, or façade roller shutters, can be installed at any time. This is due to the way they are installed, directly on the wall above the window or in the reveal. This can be done at any time, therefore external surface-mounted roller shutters are a popular choice especially for older buildings.
  • Adaptive external blinds (integrated) - are a combination of the advantages of surface-mounted and overhead roller shutters. They can also be fitted at any time without major interference with the building structure. External adaptive roller shutters They can be mounted directly on the wall or in the window recess.

2. Attachment roller shutters - also known as overlapping or on-window roller shutters

Such roller shutters can also be used in flats, provided that they have been installed early enough and the developer has agreed to such an intervention. This is because external roller shutters are mounted directly onto a window which has not yet been fitted and are inserted into the recess with it. It is also a relatively cheap and simple solution for houses, and is available in a variety of colour options. By being fitted to the window frame, the roller blinds form a uniform, aesthetically pleasing unit with it.

3. Concealed blinds

The installation of a flush-mounted roller shutter requires the removal of the top layer of the façade, which is why it is worth thinking about it before the external walls are finished. In return, however, we receive a completely invisible roller shutter mechanism, hidden completely in the building façade. Thanks to this, the box of the external roller shutter does not constitute an aesthetic barrier, and when raised, the roller shutter is not visible.

4. Lintel roller shutters - otherwise known as RKS roller shutters

This is the most advanced and aesthetic way of installing external roller shutters. The roller shutter box is installed in the window lintel during the construction of the building. It is usually made of hard polystyrene with steel reinforcement, and all its components are concealed. Once raised, the roller blind "disappears" into the building wall and is completely invisible. The disadvantage of this solution, however, is that it must be planned as early as possible - as early as the building design stage.
