An insulated steel roller security shutter, for industrial applications such as farm buildings and manufacturing plants. This shutter can be used in high speed or frequent use situations. 

A 95mm insualted steel slat profile, for wide openings with great stability against high winds, intrusion risk; and very useful because of its insulation properties. Installed in a variety of hard wearing colours. 

The i100 double skinned high security shutter is best used for openings which span between 8 and 12 meters in width. 

A perforated vision profile steel shutter for shop openings and other applications where an area must be secure but allow partial vision. 

The Fire Shutter is designed to contain any flaming within a specific area. Required by law in some building areas, the Powell Doors fire shutter has been tested for 1, 2, or 4 hours. Can be manufactured to close due to a variety of inputs, such as heat, fire alarm, or fail-safe pull cord. 

Special Projects

The tube and link roller grille, which rolls into a small enclosure when open, and becomes a security grille with tube and link pattern when closed. 

The Eurolook transparent shutter is tested as secure against intrusion, yet is formed of a lightweight polycarbonate link system which approaches glasslike transparency, with 92% clarity. 

Powell Doors, having engineered and designed roller shutters and doors from scratch, for testing and sale, since 2008, can find the solution for any project. 

Products & Services


The Powell Doors brand was only named as such in 2019, and originally founded in Summer 2017 as Shutter Design and Installation. Jason Powell is the owner and founder, and began work in security in 1999 when he joined the infantry of the British Army, rising to the rank of Sergeant after tours of Kosovo, Bosnia, and Iraq with the Royal Welsh regiment. Jason is also a PhD in philosophy (University of Surrey and Liverpool), an author of numerous books, and a musician and choir member of the Orthodox Church.

In 2008 we began working with roller shutters and electrically operated doors at Aluroll and Roche Systems in Oswestry; along the way putting various Secured by Design products through burglary resistance testing, and creating and maintaining the ISO 9001 system for those security shutter and garage door companies.

In 2015 we began development of a new roller shutter motor controller, with radio frequency remote control and a host of safety and control features. And, in 2017 it was time to begin a company which encompassed all of these security, quality, and engineering capabilities into one new and ambitious company.

Prior to the statement of the Creed in the Orthodox tradition of Christianity, the Priest or Deacon demands that a guard watch the doors.

Yes, this motor is a beauty. While playing one of Bach’s two part Inventions the other day, I heard my washing machine give out a huge groan. I had left it on, rolling about while I played the piano. On concluding my playing, I went into the kitchen to find a pall of smoke and… Read More
