How to Choose the Best Window Roller Shutters

by admin on February 3, 2017 in Security Roller Shutters

There are a number of things you’ll want to consider when shopping for door and window security roller shutters. Our experienced consultants can help you choose the best operation and design to suit your needs and budget, but here are a few tips for making your final decision.

Choose your shutter operation

You can choose to operate your roller shutters in a number of ways; either manually or motorised by a switch or remote control. Our experienced consultants can guide you to determine which operation system is the most appropriate. Here’s an overview to help you choose the best roller shutter operation:

Manual

The most common way to operate roller shutters manually is with a winder strap. This method is cost efficient as it requires no motor. With the winder strap, you can stop the blinds at any position fully open, fully closed or anywhere in between.

If your new shutter is going to be fitted in a tight space such as a small bathroom, a pulley system may be more suitable. Manual operation is cost efficient. Our experienced consultants can assist you in determining which system is most appropriate for your new shutters.

Electric

Your roller shutters can be motorised so you can operate them electrically with a switch or remote control. Simply push the wall switch to raise or lower your shutters to the desired portion or use the remote control from anywhere in the room without having to get up. No more afternoon sun heating up your room or privacy issues as it falls dusk. Electric motorised shutters are more suitable for larger windows.

Solar

Your roller shutters can be operated with a wireless remote control using solar power. Solar energy charges the battery to operate the solar roller shutters.

Choose a colour and design

Roller shutters can improve your home’s look. We offer a range of 12 different roller shutter colours in superb paint finishes to enhance your home’s exterior finishings and add kerb appeal. The shutter can be a solid colour or you can use two different colours to create a simple patterned look. The housing, guide and bottom rail colours should complement the main roller shutter colour and are generally white, cream, sand, or brown.

When deciding on a colour, consider matching your roller shutters to an element of your home’s exterior such as window and door trims, roof colour, or guttering. Even better, get your new window shutters and garage roller shutter door to match for a new modern look. Ask advice from our experienced consultants to help you choose the right colour and design style for the best roller shutters.

Budget

Roller shutters offer added insulation meaning you could be spending less on your home’s heating and cooling costs.
