Did you know that window shutters date all the way back to ancient Greece? Back then, glass was extremely expensive, so the Greeks had to get creative about their window coverings. A lot has changed since those early days. Over the years, mankind has switched from using wood shutters to using aluminium shutters, and in recent times we’ve also added extra burglar-proof features to create security shutters.
What do security shutters do?
Installing security shutters in your home offers many benefits. Like any other shutter, security shutters are an idea solution for controlling light, temperature and noise levels. Shutters also offer great privacy as they can be completely closed up. Aluminium security shutters also have built-in defences against intruders to give you that peace of mind when you lay your head down to rest at night.
Say goodbye to unsightly burglar bars
Burglar bars are a common sight in South Africa, but that doesn’t make them any less unsightly! Sometimes, burglar bars can make your home look and feel like a prison with their heavy steel bars, chunky welding and heavy bolts. Plus, they only perform one function, so you’ll always have to spend more on curtains or blinds to control light.
Security shutters are sleeker and more stylish than burglar bars. By making use of lightweight but strong aluminium, our shutters will enhance your home aesthetic instead of detracting from it. Plus, they don’t rust!
Security shutters are made for your home
Our security shutters are custom made for your home, so they can fit onto most door and window openings. You can even choose between a hinge, track or sliding solution – depending on your specific security needs. With a sliding security shutter, you can stack your shutters for a completely unobstructed view of the outside.
Security shutters for patio enclosures
The combination of security shutters and aluminium sliding doors makes for a perfect patio enclosure. Apart from the security benefits, they give you the ability to let in the light by opening the shutters and keep out the cold by closing the sliding doors during winter, and they allow you to block out the heat from the sun by closing the shutters and letting the breeze in by opening the doors during summer.
