6 Benefits of Security Roller Shutters
Are you considering getting roller shutters for your home or business? Here are 6 benefits of installing security door and window roller shutters to your house, that you might not know.
1. Excellent protection against break-ins and intruders
The biggest benefit of roller shutters is that they provide security for your family, your valuables, and your home against intruders. Roller shutters are fitted closely to the door or window making them physically difficult to pull away or remove from the outside. Furthermore, our shutters are made from heavy duty aluminium for maximum strength.
Not only are they a physical deterrent to intruders and vandals, but security roller shutters are also a visual deterrent to keep intruders and vandals away. When an intruder sees security roller shutters, it is a visual cue that your home is well-protected. They may decide it’s not worth the effort and risk of trying to gain access to your home and rather go elsewhere.
2. Protection against the sun and heat
Australian summers can heat up your home making it uncomfortable. Curtains and blinds provide little relief from the sun because the heat can transfer from the window glass. Exterior roller shutters, however, can reduce the temperature of your window glass by over 4°C! Roller shutters provide much more protection against the sun and heat than other window treatments.
3. Protection against harsh weather
They offer excellent protection against harsh weather elements, such as flying debris and hail during storms, cold weather, and heat and debris from bushfires. Our shutters are made from marine-grade heavy duty aluminium for maximum strength and durability to suit Australian weather conditions.
4. Significant energy savings
Roller shutters can save you money on your home’s heating and cooling costs and reduce your energy usage. They provide protection against the sun to reduce your cooling costs in Australia’s hot summers. And they’ll help keep your home warm during the winter too because our shutters are made with a polyurethane that offers insulation. Furthermore, shutters create an air space between the shutters and the window that acts as an energy barrier.
They can save you up to 40% on your energy bill practically paying for themselves. Not only can they save you money, but you’ll feel good about using less energy and reducing your carbon footprint, making them an environmentally conscious choice.
5. Noise reduction
Shutters can make your home more comfortable and peaceful by reducing outside noise; and can reduce noise by 50-75%. Whether you live near a busy street, an airport, or perhaps a neighbourhood with loud dogs, you can feel relaxed indoors in your quiet and secure home.
6. Better privacy and light control
They also allow you to control the lighting and privacy in your home. When closed the shutters allow some light and air ventilation to pass through. Shutters can be completely closed to block out most of the light, perfect for watching movies as a family. Or you can choose to open the shutters more for a sunlit room and fresh air. The choice is yours. Roller shutters give you control over the privacy of your home so you can feel relaxed.
