It can be used manually with a switch switch or button, as well as models produced for use with a remote control. You can mount the Switch or switch to the side or top of the window or door. If you also use it manually, if you also use it with a remote control, it will stop by itself when it reaches the opening and closing points.

As with all automatic shutter models, it can be produced in different sizes and different colors. In addition to the safety and good appearance it provides, it is usually produced from materials resistant to fire, various natural disasters and in such a way as to protect it from situations that may negatively affect the places where it is used, such as dusting, misting. In other words, they also make a significant contribution to the provision of cleaning and hygiene conditions, which are considered very important, especially for workplaces.

But they can also be installed using different systems. For example, people whose homes receive sun in the afternoon and want plants or pets in the house to benefit from it, but who are at work at that time, use automatic shutters installed together with systems that allow them to open and close automatically at certain hours in their windows.
Automatic shutters used on doors: they are usually used on the doors of stores and other businesses. But it can also be seen that they are used in some homes. Although it is not often used in homes in our country, it is seen that automatic shutters can also be installed on the doors of houses in Western countries. Although it is preferred to be controlled by remote control, it is also common for them to be used manually by mounting a switch or button.
Automatic shutters used in garages: they can be controlled by remote control or manually. But usually, with the help of placed photocells, they automatically open when the vehicles approach the garage door, and they automatically close when the vehicle exits or enters, leaving the garage door.
