How to install: Battery operated Roller Shutters


Battery installation is more difficult than installing Electric

Tools required:

Step 1.

Charge your battery. This will take some time approximately 8-10 hours for a full charge, so if you start this as soon as you receive your order, it may be ready by the time you start the installation process.

Step 2.

Mark the top horizontal position of the Roller Shutter on the wall above the window. On this line mark the width of the shutter. From these 2 marks, vertically level down each side of the window. You will now have the outline of the Roller Shutter marked on the wall. At this stage you can check that it is central to the window and is exactly horizontal and vertical -- This Is Most Important!

In-Reveal is the same principle but your window is your horizontal and vertical position. Still check that they are exactly horizontal and vertical. This Is Most Important

Step 3.

Measure the depth of the head box. Then from the top horizontal position you have marked on the wall, measure this distance down each side. This will then give you the position for the top of the guide on each side of the window.

For In-Reveal You can now cut the guide to the exacted length, and angle of the sill.

Step 4.

Hold the guide in the 2 positions marked. Top of guide position (as in step 3) and the vertical guide position (as in step 2).
You can now mark the best position to fix the guide to the wall and these marks can be transferred to the other side guide.
You can now drill through the front and back of the guide; the drill size is determined by the size of screw you use. The front of the guide will need a 10mm hole in which the 10mm coloured guide plugs are inserted - this then covers up the fixing points.

For In-Reveal:

The fixing holes are drilled from the curtain side 10mm to the outside 5mm. No 10mm coloured plug is required.

For In-Reveal cable hole:

The best way to drill the Cable Hole for an In-Reveal installation, is to mark the exact position of the Cable Hole in the reveal, then drill a 12mm hole, 5mm deep. From this starter hole you can now drill a 10mm hole at about 30-60 degree angle, this angle determines on how close or how far away the controller will be from the window. This hole then gives you a straight cable hole, from the reveal to the back of the wall plate. This hole is then cover by the controller's wall plate which is 81mm wide, this will covers up most misaligned holes.

Step 5

From inside the house find the desired position of the controller, then transfer this position to the outside wall behind the guide. Then drill through the wall. This hole is for the cable to the wall plate

Step 6.

The head box comes with pre-drilled holes to attach the head box cover after installation. The guide legs can now be slid into position, (die cast legs that fit onto the bottom corner  of each side of the Head box, and  connect the main assembly to the guides) remove the rubber rings first that hold the plastic box end insert, this box end insert helps guide the curtain from the head box down into the guides. Then slide the guides on each side leg. Carefully place the Roller shutter on the outline of the marked on the wall and mark your fixing points and cable hole. Then drill and plug the wall if masonry; if it is a timber wall, just a pilot hole to suit the fixing screws. On the back of the guide drill a large hole to allow the cable to exit the guide.

Step 7.

At the end of the shutter that has the ODS, you will see that the guide leg has a hole, which must be drilled right through. Remove the rear rivet and feed the cable through the guide leg and then down the guide to the cable exit hole. Then replace the removed rivet.

Step 8.

Carefully place the Roller shutter next to the window. Through the cable hole in the wall insert a piece of wire, then attach the cable from the motor to the wire and start pulling the cable into the house. Raise the Roller shutter to the outline marked on the wall, and then screw it to the wall.

On-Wall Installation: Then insert the 10mm coloured guide plugs.

Step 9.

Unwrap the curtain and place the bottom bar of the curtain into the guides on each side - they will click into position.

Please note: The curtain will not move, until the motor has power to turn the axle.

Step 10.

The cable can now be clipped into the wall plate, and fixed to the wall.
When the controller is fully charged, place it in the wall plate and check the operation of the curtain. If the curtain runs in the opposite direction to the indicated arrow, swap the wires around on the wall plate
Roller Shutters under 4 square meters in size, are fitted with the L10 battery motor this motor is preset in the factory will automatically stop at the fully closed and open positions.
By pressing the centre button on the controller, it will stop at any desired position.

If your Roller shutters is over 4 square meters in size it will be fitted with the T20 battery motor, this battery motor requires the up and down stop limits to be set.

Please note: The Box Locking System must be set at the correct position. Please read
The Box Locking System and the Slat locking System

Step 11.

When the curtain is in the down position you will be able to fix the head box to the wall, this should be done on each side through the head box end plate.

Step 12.

Rivet the head box cover on and you are done!

Please note: install with no window sill

Although 90% of windows have sills, if your windows don't, then don't despair! We have a solution to that.
We can supply a false sill for the curtain to fully close down on.

 

The aluminium sill can be the same colour as the head box and guides and come in 3 sizes

24mm x 22mm $6.00
24mm x 46mm $8.50
24mm x 77mm $11.00


To order a sill send an email and request a sill immediately after you place your order 
I will then send you a PayPal request for payment.
