Alu Star Magnum - Mini Overhead Door and Hurricane Shutter

Alutech United has developed a new version of the hurricane roll shutter, called Magnum. This shutter system can be used both, as a mini-overhead door for security applications, as well as hurricane shutters. In either case, this will give you small housing sizes.

Our unique "End Retention System" eliminates the need for storm bars. Years of engineering and testing went into our most advanced roll shutter.
The patented technology provides a smooth, quiet operation and very small housing sizes combined with all the protection you need.  The Magnum meets and exceeds the toughest standards: TDI, IBC/FBC.

Some of the unique features of the Magnum Shutter are:

  • End Retention System - eliminates storm bars
  • Efficient roll diameter - minimizes housing size
  • Patented roll shutter system
  • 57mm extruded aluminum slat
  • Stainless steel end retention bolts
  • New slat appearance
  • Building Code Approved
  • Approved for block and concrete construction
  • Approved for wooden structures
  • Perforation and hole punch option
  • Slim line and commercial lock options

Roll Shutter, Accordion Shutters, Hurricane Shutters, Storm Panels, what is the difference?

There are many solutions to protect your windows and doors on your home from storms, hurricane force winds, wind driven rain, etc. The term "Hurricane Shutters" usually applies to Roll Shutters or Accordion Shutters that can withstand hurricane force winds and are rated to such conditions, i.e. they are tested and comply with various building codes, e.g.: IBC - International Building Code

Do I need hurricane shutters?

Whether you use roll shutters or accordion shutters they do much more than just protect you from hurricane force winds. See our solution page for for more benefits.
Depending where you are located, you might need shutters that are rated for different wind speeds: See our wind load map what your area is rated.

What colors can I choose from?

Depending on the product standard colors are white, cream, beige, gray, ivory,  bronze, silver and brown. Many non standard colors and custom color options are available upon request.

How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?

Special switches will operate up to 2 shutters. Somfy's RTS or IGC Technology can be installed to operate virtually an unlimited number of shutters with only one switch. Somfy Systems can also be adapted to control one or more motors in groups and/or individually from one or more locations. In addition, we can interface with most home automation and z-wave systems.

When should I use a Motor with Gear Override?

Motorized shutters with a gear override option are recommended and required for any opening that may be used as an emergency exit. If power is lost, a motorized shutter with gear override can be manually opened for exiting the building. Some areas are also prone to frequent power outages. If this is the case, we would recommend manual shutters when possible and motorized shutters with gear override.
