Sometimes when our manually operated roller shutters have been used for many years, we may encounter that due to wear and tear after prolonged period of use over the many years, the manually operated roller shutters may start to lack tension in its spring system and therefore a change of spring may sometimes be required before the set of roller shutters eventually gets stucked.
Roller Shutters Does Not Spring Up or Down As It Should
If you notice that the manually operated roller shutters does not spring up or down as it should, it may be a sign that there is lack of tension. This may be true as a set of manual roller shutters contains a spring in its system and hence some form of tension should be felt whenever we lift up or bring down the roller shutters. If you are not able to feel the tension of the spring, you may want to seek the advice of a trusted roller shutter company to see if there is a need to repair or replace any of the parts before it eventually gets stucked. Once the roller shutters get stucked, urgent repair may be required as you are no longer able to gain access or secure your premises.
Tough to Push Roller Shutter Up or Down
Another possible scenario that you may encounter when the spring system lacks tension will be that when it is really tough to push up or bring down the set of manually operated roller shutters. When this happens, it may mean that the spring is lacking in tension and replacement may be required. This may be caused by wear and tear due to prolonged use of the roller shutters over many years.
