Footlocker Highcross Shopping Center Leicester - FlexiGlide Vision Air

Highcross Shopping Centre Leicester has some of the UK’s biggest brands, and Footlocker is one of them. The store was being fitted out by a professional contractor, and as part of this work our FlexiGlide Vision Air perforated shutter was used for the shop's entrance.

As with most shopping centres across the UK, we delivered the shutter out of hours when the centre was closed, and then installed it the following day. This way there was minimal disruption for the shopping public at Highcross.

Footlocker chose our micro perforated shutter in white, because the small perforations allows the shutter still to be see-through, while preventing anyone from putting their hands through it.

These pictures show the shutter right after it was installed. At this point the main contractor still had work to do around our sliding shutter, to make it fit in completely with the rest of the store, so this is of course not yet the final look of the store-entrance. However, the photos show clearly how the shutter is installed and works in relation to the rest of the opening.

Why we delivered our sliding shutter out of hours

We typically deliver and install security shutters in shopping centres out of hours, when the centre is closed. This minimises disruption to shoppers and businesses and is also safer. Installing a shutter during regular shopping hours would require blocking off the area around the installation site, which would limit access to nearby stores and could potentially cause safety hazards.

By delivering and installing the shutter out of hours, the installation can be completed quickly and efficiently without causing any disruption to shoppers or businesses. This also allows us to work without any time pressure and in a safer environment, reducing the risk of any accidents and errors.

Additionally, installing a security shutter out of hours can help maintain the aesthetic appearance of the shopping centre, as the installation process can be somewhat messy and disruptive. By completing the installation outside of regular shopping hours, we can clean up before the centre reopens to the public.

Maneuvering a large security shutter past the shopping public, to the site of installation can be somewhat hazardous. That's why we normally deliver our security shutters when the shopping centre is closed.

More information about shopping centre sliding shutters

FlexiGlide sliding shutters are often an excellent choice for securing store-entrances in shopping centres when they are closed. Our sliding shutters can span any width and can also curve around corners; something that traditional roller shutters can't do.

Moreover, sliding shutters need minimal headspace and slide away completely when not in use. This means the opening is completely clear when the shop operates, which keeps the store's entrance maximally inviting to shoppers.
