Why it makes sense to buy our Australian Made Security Shutters.

by admin on May 25, 2017 in Security Roller Shutters

No matter what you purchase in this new globalised economy, you’re more than likely going to be faced with a choice – buy an Australian made product or a similar one made overseas.

The tussle between your wallet and your heart can make any purchase decision a tricky one.

You want to do the right thing, but the prospect of saving a few dollars can be very attractive. I mean, shutters are shutters are shutters, right? What’s the difference?

Well, when it comes to Security Integrated Shutters, the short answer is ‘plenty!’

Firstly, there’s a real difference in quality. Our manufacturing process uses state-of-the-art equipment operated by people who really give a damn, not just because it’s their job, but also because they take enormous pride in their work.
They know they’re competing with the world and they enjoy the challenge of turning out a world-class product. That’s the Australian way, right?

Now lets talk about design.

Our technical team design security shutters specifically for Australian conditions. That’s because they know that what might work in China, Russia, India, Malaysia or anywhere else in the world just won’t cut it here in our unique and diverse climatic conditions. You might have noticed yourself that our weather has a way of showing up poor design and sub-standard quality pretty quickly.

And to make doubly sure our shutters are the very best they can be, we have our designs tested by the CSIRO, Australia’s own internationally recognised research organisation.

Then we back our products and people 100% with excellent before and after sales service and a comprehensive 10 year warranty that guarantees you’ll be happy with your decision.

So from the point of view of workmanship, design, service and manufacturing quality alone, we believe you’re already way ahead when you buy SIS.

But that’s not all.

When you buy Australian made SIS security shutters, you’re helping to make a real difference to the Australian economy as whole by keeping Australians in existing manufacturing jobs and creating new ones. That’s a lot of your fellow Australian workers and their families who’ll benefit from your decision to buy local.

These benefits aren’t just feel good; they’re measurable. Research published by the Industry Capability Network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, the following effects flow through the economy:
$333,900 worth of tax revenue generated
$985,000 worth of value-added generated
$95,000 worth of welfare benefits saved
10 full-time jobs created

Now, we’re not saying that your purchase of our security shutters is going to single-handedly save the Australian economy and we’re not asking you buy simply because it’s ‘the patriotic thing to do’.

Far from it.

We’re simply suggesting that when you weight it all up, the decision to protect your family with Australian made Security Integrated Shutters simply makes sense.
