As I’m typing, Adelaide is being lashed with winds up to 60km per hour, with a possible thunderstorm developing throughout the afternoon. Even if I couldn’t see the trees nearly bent sideways out the office window, I’d know there was wild weather in Adelaide judging by the number of panicked calls we’ve received today from people whose shutters have been blown off their walls. Yep: blown – off – the – walls!
In weather like this where very heavy wind is hitting the home, we strongly recommend roller shutters be either completely rolled up, or completely rolled down. Leaving a shutter partially rolled up provides an avenue for a gust of wind to funnel into and potentially lift the curtain – or the whole shutter – away from the wall.
Don’t be too worried though; roller shutters will generally only ever come away from the wall if they are oversize width-wise, have been left partially open in high gusts of wind, or have been very poorly installed.
If you have shutters affected by today’s weather please give us a call on 8447 3443. We now have a few extremely busy days ahead however we will give you what advice we can over the phone and schedule a time asap to get out and have a look at any damage.
This is an older but still very interesting article by Ian Weir, Head of Landscape Architecture at Queensland University of Technology about building bushfire safe homes and roller shutters:
While perhaps not a concern for metropolitan Adelaide homes, we don’t have to travel far from suburbia to be in fire danger areas in this South Australia. We can assist with bushfire rated roller shutters – if you have any queries please call (84473443) or email us (email@example.com).
A belated Happy Easter to everyone!

We have moved to our new premises at 2 Hopkins St Wingfield. We have had a busy few weeks cleaning, organising and moving; and there is still some work ahead to fully set up operations at the new premises. We will be helping our customers in Adelaide (and beyond) as normal during this period for roller shutter repairs; however we won’t be ready for customer walk-ins until we get our new showroom completed.
At this stage we’re hoping to open the new showroom around May this year – watch this space for further updates!
A big thank you to all the staff at TRSRC who have worked so hard packing up the old workshop. It’s been a hard slog, yet everyone’s still so enthusiastic to get the new workshop up and running. THANK YOU!
We love getting feedback – especially when it recognises one of our team going above and beyond to help out a customer in need:
Happy New Year!
What better day to announce some special news for TRSRC – we’re moving to new premises in 2016! We anticipate opening our new showroom in February/March 2016. Between now and then our current office will be closed to allow us to work on the move – stay posted for updates as we transition to the exciting new premises in early 2016!
All the best for a happy and healthy 2016, from the TRSRC team.
We are working between Christmas and New Years on Tuesday 29th, Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st.
We will be back at work on Monday 4th January.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our Adelaide and regional SA customers for making 2015 our best year yet – Merry Christmas and a safe, happy New Year to all.
An update for customers on our Christmas/New Year schedule – if you would like new roller shutters installed before Christmas 2015, we can take bookings up to the 4th December. We apologise for the early date, however we have some advance bookings already in place and in order to guarantee installation by December 24th we will need all orders confirmed by 4th December.
Our open dates for repairs over Christmas/New Years in Adelaide will be published soon.
If you have any queries don’t hesitate to contact us on 8447 3443.
We recently had some upstairs roller shutters to repair. The second story wasn’t overly high as such; but the shutters were in an awkward position so we needed to break out some serious scaffolding:
Great view! (Not the ocean – the roller shutters – nearly fixed and ready to roll!)
Thanks to SA locals Grove Scaff for keeping our team safe!
We’ve had a real run of positive customer feedback these past few weeks! Here’s one example from a customer who was appreciative of our tech Rolando, who recently faced down an overgrown cactus to reach a roller shutter in need of repair…
Cactus 1 : Rolando’s vest 0
Ouch! And so to thank Rolando for his enthusiasm and commitment to fixing her roller shutters, our appreciative customer sent across this lovely note – and a gift card!
