Warehouses often provide criminals with an easy access point into the heart of a business, with many of them employing the Trojan Horse approach of sending an unmarked truck to collect goods under the pretext of filling an order. The manufacturing and supply sectors (and the majority of sectors requiring distribution warehouse, for that matter) are fraught with this kind of swindle, and every year billions of rands in insurance claims are submitted as a result of warehouse robberies and theft of stock.
A major cause seems to be warehouse entrances that are not sufficiently secured. The sheer size and weight of the roller-shutters typically found in these environments often prove cumbersome to operate and as a result they are frequently simply left open providing criminals with the opportunity to strike.
Centurion Systems offers a reliable solution in the form of the RSO range of industrial roller-shutter operators. These units are custom-built for heavy lifting; combining a powerful electric motor, aluminium gearbox and oblique gear-driven transmission for the ultimate in industrial automation. Not only does the RSO range offer convenience via a three-button wall pendant, but also provides security courtesy of a proven mechanical brake and a five metre hand chain that can be secured with a padlock.
Three models are available to suit a wide variety of industrial automation applications.
The RSO5R offers basic, cost-effective automation for shutters weighing up to 500 kg.
The RSO5 comes standard with a multi-faceted interface board that can be used for the connection of infrared safety beams, keypads, proximity access control readers and a number of other ancillary devices.
Finally, the RSO9 is ideally suited for very heavy roller-shutters such as the entrances to aeroplane hangars and can handle loads up to 900 kg.
