Complete Outdoor Spaces with Easy-Lift Roller Shades from Eastern Metal Supply

An important aspect of hurricane preparedness is finding the right product for your facility. Whether at home or in business, a solution that provides maximum protection against hurricanes while being efficient, economical and easy to install. Eastern Metal Supply’s new EASY LIFT roller shutter offers a variety of solutions to make your choice easy!

When built into a new home, roller shutters are virtually invisible. When closed, shutters provide not only storm protection, but also break-in or break-in protection, along with privacy and sun and shade control.

The Roll Shutter system can be controlled manually with a crank or remotely using a motorized system. The homeowner can also use a variety of home automation options like Alexa or Google Home to secure their home or business from anywhere in the world!

This revolutionary single wall roller shutter system uses single wall slats of high tensile strength 6063-T6 extruded aluminum, resulting in a product that offers the same storm protection at half the weight of its predecessors. That means lower cost and easier installation.

The new EASY LIFT, or 63mm single wall roller shutter as it is known in the industry, is a game changer as it is almost 50% lighter than a double wall shutter. The EASY LIFT’S single wall plank is stronger and easier to install than its predecessors. The new system eliminates many problems, as the lighter weight allows for smaller, more efficient motors to be controlled. Storage, manufacturing, transportation, and installation are less expensive, and automation is easier to control.

EMS has also taken the guesswork out of installation as there is no need for out-of-the-box modifications. The EASY LIFT roller shutter can be tied into a normal business routine without worrying about twisting or mechanical failure. The included build sheet covers all aspects to avoid delays and time-consuming troubleshooting.

Installation of this easy-to-use system is as simple as putting it together. The EASY LIFT roller shutter comes with pre-drilled holes in the rails and the motor is already installed in the top box. The lighter, single-wall sheet makes installation easier overall, almost like putting together building blocks.

Additionally, integrating multiple systems means multiple upsell opportunities for installers. The EASY LIFT single wall batten completes the trifecta of roller shutter systems using the same rail systems as Eastern Metals tried and tested 40mm and 55mm double wall battens.

And EMS provides online and in-person training for installers, owners, fabricators, and sales teams.

The EASY LIFT roller shade can be installed as a spring-loaded system, with incremental spring torque adjustment capability and rapid deployment that allows it to be rolled up or lowered by hand without the need for power or motorized equipment.

The selling points of the EASY LIFT roller shutter include easy, safe and economical installation. It is extremely weather resistant and excellent for indoor and outdoor security applications. Provides UV protection and heat reduction. It features a significantly reduced hood size and allows for kit or boxed shutter units. There is also a large inventory of roller shutter components available.
