Hanging calculations

Which tubular motor for which blind or shutter?

Overview of the average weights of different shutters

Materials                                                                              Weight

Shutter weight / PVC                                                       5-6 kg / m2

Shutter weight / aluminum                                            7-8 kg / m2

Shutter weight / wood                                                     10 kg / m2

Calculation examples:

PVC shutter
2,50 m width x 2,20 m hight = 5,50 m2 surface
5,50 m2 x 6 kg (PVC shutter) = 33 kg (load)

Aluminium shutter:
2,50 m width x 2,40 m hight = 6 m2 surface
6 m2 x 8 kg (Aluminium shutter) = 48 kg (load)

* Theoretically possible load after test and requirement standard for the serviceability of tubular motors according to DIN EN14202, excluding the mechanical resistances in the inlet funnel in the shutter rail, by the winding of the shutter etc.

For practical applications (intended use), we recommend to use the table values for the maximum load.
