Qompact® Rolling Security & Storm Shutters
StoreSafe® Commercial Shutters
Qompact can be built both wider and taller than foam-filled shutters, making it the perfect choice for commercial applications.
These shutters are widely used in the United States for their loss prevention and design benefits. Commercial shutters can be perforated for night time merchandising.
The Qompact® shutter system is available in manual and automatic operation.
StormSafe® & HomeSafe® Residential Shutters
Home owners will love the quiet operation, elegant design, and security of Qompact.
In addition to privacy and sun shading, Qompact uniquely provides security and hurricane protection.
Smooth and Quiet
Using the patented nested design, the Qompact shutter system rolls smoothly and quietly. 6/6 nylon bushings allow the shutter to glide smoothly through the security guides.

Elegant Design and Engineered Excellence
What makes the Qompact shutter system unique is the 10 different slat sizes that have been ingeniously engineered to allow the slats to nest tightly with each other. The nesting allows for virtually zero space between the slats, creating a compact roll and the smallest box housing required. Each slat grouping has a specific radius designed to accommodate the ever increasing roll diameter. This proprietary design means that each slat rolls together - perfectly.
Smaller Shutter Boxes
Traditional roll shutters require large 10”-12” (250 mm - 300 mm) housings, ruining the style and look of your home. Now, with the Qompact shutter system, an 84” (2.1 m) tall opening will require only a compact 6” (150 mm) housing. That is 40-50% smaller, creating a much more appealing installation.
Qompact® is Proven Strong
Qompact combines premium design with unparalleled strength. The single-walled, extruded slats withstand sledge hammer impacts and hurricane impact tests.
In head-to-head tests, Qompact outperformed its foam-filled competitors every single time.
End Retention Detail
End retention screws keep the curtain captive in the rails. Qompact curtains can’t be pried out with crowbars or pushed out of the rails due to high winds.
Note: Qompact can also be made without end retention where smaller side rails are sufficient.
The improved slat design is 27-times stronger than a perforated 40mm slip hinge, making a Qompact shutter impenetrable by comparison.
Qompact shutters meet the strict standards for U.S. Florida (FBC) hurricane approvals. In fact, Qompact passed with 330 km/h (200 mph) winds up to 6000mm (19.5 ft) wide.
