Tambour Shutters

Small Openings and Display Cases, Protected.

Tambour shutters or doors are perfect for providing extra security for cabinets in pharmacies, mall kiosks, AV and other transportation and display cases. They’re easy to open, close and lock.

Worry-Free Security For Important Merchandise

The Tambour Shutter not only has a highly advanced cylinder lock, it offers a choice of three different locking mechanisms to ensure your goods stay safe from theft.

Conveniently Adapts To Your Preferred Locking System

The Tambour comes with a full-size mortise cylinder lock that is easy to change over to your key system. It’s so easy to re-key that yearly key changes can become a regular part of your security protocol.

We can also install a housing for SFIC (small format interchangeable core) locks on request.

No Compromise On Design

There are three materials options and many finish options, so you can choose cabinet security to fit the look and feel of your store.

The polycarbonate panel shutter allows you to display products while keeping them secure. The Mini solid aluminum and V-Slat solid aluminum are opaque for a cleaner look that also conveys security.

Any exposed aluminum tambour door is available in a choice of standard colors that play well with other design elements. A full spectrum of powder coat colors are available on request.
