Calculating the right Torque(NM) motorMotor Lifting Capacity Of Motors(Kg) = 2 x NM of Motor for shutters up-to 2 meters high. Shutters between 2 - 3 meters height, expect 20% loss in Lifting Capacity. For example : 10 NM motor will lift 20 Kg up-to 2 meters high roller shutter and shutters between 2-3 meters height, lifting Capacity of motor will be reduced to 16 Kg.
- Residential window roller shutters weigh 4 kg/square meter.
- Bush-fire BAL40(Extruded) roller shutters weigh 8 kg/square meter.
- Hurricane window roller shutters weigh 6 kg/square meter.
- Clear-view roller shutters weigh 6 kg/square meter.
