Present for more than 30 years at the heart of the Reunion Architecture, the Roller Shutter has become over time the most widespread protecting structure for glass bays on the market. The system most extensively used, « Roller Shutter Renovation » (VRR), left a lasting impression on the traditional building techniques used in the Reunion market.
However, this rustic designed product stopped complying with the continuous rising quality demands and expectations of the market. JMD, pioneer in this field, applied its innovative spirit to respond to this demand by the development of a unique product with local concept, the « Roller Shutter Jeronimo» (VRJ).
Native Design & Architecture
Despite its intended use for the renovation of older housing in Europe, the VRR is not adapted for new construction which justifies the need for a more suited product, the «VRJ».
This new concept, with its distinguished design, completely integrates the habitat and reflects the values of the local architecture. Designed for a wall mounted installation, the VRJ integrates and blends harmoniously the walls of all buildings. By design, this product is very well adapted to the spectrum of sliding and casement windows engineered by JMD. The monobloc product concept, unique to the market, avoids the need of a tube in-between the joinery and the roller shutter hence maintaining its resistance to cyclonic winds. You may therefore take full advantage of these openings. Its half-moon shape blends aesthetic to usage. The removable cover system of the box from the interior face facilitates cleansing and maintenance without dismantling the box.
The Only Roller Shutter Box of The Island Which Can Be Coated With Paint.
This extension of the «traditional» roller shutter Jéronimo (VRJ+t) is unique at Reunion Island. Focused when it comes to details, you will value this innovative system which will perfectly fuse to the traditional construction of your home. The addition of a key element on the VRJ box permits to substitute the aluminium sheet, traditionally visible from the outside, with plywood treated to resist humidity (fungicide) and insects (insecticide): CTBX TFI
Covering the outside of the VRJ box is possible by the application of appropriate filler, concrete for instance, in accordance with the local construction norms.
The VRJ raises the bar of quality and refinement while proposing a product concept without any visible screws. Moreover, any defect on masonry work and the sealing between the joints can be concealed with finishg plate around the frame structure and the VRJ indoors as well as outdoors.
The cranks on the motorised roller shutter, designed to be used when there is an emergency intervention, can be replaced by a wholly invisible system to perfectly match the demand of the interior architecture of your home.
So as to fully meet the acoustic and noise emission requirements of the RTAA-DOM, the VRJ can be equipped with a noise insulation kit. The pack is comprised of a convoluted foam pad and bitumen sheeting.
This kit insulates your premises from outdoor noise and also helps reduce internal noise of the roller shutter for your greater comfort.
Potential and Performance
This product can be used for a maximum 22cm finished wall thickness. It is necessary to provide for an additional 25cm height under lintels (height of box), at the moment of construction, for the integration of this system.
The VRJ can thus fit your openings at a maximum height of 2.40m under the box (2.65m under lintels) for a maximum width of 3.20m. If you are having bigger opening made, kindly contact your joiner for a more in-depth study.
