Edinburgh Sliding Folding Security Shutters

Edinburgh is Scotland's capital and the second largest city in Scotland after Glasgow. We are often in Edinburgh to install one of our sliding and folding security shutters.

The city was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites because of its exceptional historic and architectural interest. With over 900 listed buildings (only London has more), Edinburgh has a very rich history.

Sliding shutters in Scotland's capital

We have fitted sliding shutters in many different places, and know from experience it is a very versatile security shutter system. When working in Scotland's capital, with all its diversity of architecture, this is a big advantage.

Advantages of FlexiGlide shutters

FlexiGlide sliding shutters have several features that make them stand out from traditional roller shutters. Here are a few:

  • Works without a motor - Our sliding shutters are manual security systems that don't need a motor and electricity to operate. This makes them easier, safer and quicker to install than rolling shutters.
  • Needs very little headroom - A few centimetres is enough, so FlexiGlide shutters fit in places where normal roller shutters don't.
  • Spans unlimited widths - These shutters slide and fold, without the need for intermediate posts, pillars or columns. So the opening can stay completely clear.
  • A style for every situation - There are six different types of sliding shutters available, from very open to completely closed.
  • Lightweight, but strong - So you can use our sliding shutters on structures with limited support.
  • Follows curves - With a FlexiGlide shutter you can secure a curved opening in a beautiful, non-intrusive way.

This sliding shutter installation in progress shows how the curtain hangs from a bottom rail and locks into the floor with bolts. The whole shutter can fold up when not in use and then slides away into a pocket in the hollow wall at the far end. With the shutter open, the whole opening is completely clear (tap the image for a bigger version).

Top-rated sliding folding shutters for Edinburgh

We believe that FlexiGlide is a superior sliding folding shutter system. For this reason we think it's a good option to consider for any project in Edinburgh that needs security shutters.

Why these sliding shutters stand out

Among other things, our sliding shutters have a strong, rounded top track that looks great. We use heavy-duty locking knobs made from aluminium (not plastic). Our sliding shutters glide smoothly because they have high quality rollers. The shutters lock into polished stainless steel floor sockets. And we use high strength steel hangers as well as stronger locking units. So all in all, these sliding shutters are built to last a long time.

Victoria Street in Edinburgh's Old Town was designed by architect Thomas Hamilton. It's perhaps one the most photographed locations in the city. Its cobblestones, gentle curve and colourful shopfronts make it one of Edinburgh's prettiest streets.
