Are Shutters Good For Security?

Some people may remember the security shutters of the past, with an image of the flimsy and unappealing coverings that fronted various properties or factories. These days, shutters are not only much more secure, but are available in a range of colours and styles, creating a sleek and protective modern window covering.

Roller Shutters

Here are the three main ways that shutters offer your home security and protection.

  1. Criminal deterrent

Installing roller shutters will add security to your home by providing an extra barrier for criminals. When a shutter is fully closed, it remains secure and can only be opened with whichever operation method it has been designed to open with - whether this is via switch, remote or manual operation.

  1. Weather damage

Roller shutters were originally utilized in Europe to prevent extreme temperatures from damaging window frames, which can be affected by cold or heat. Window shutters stop the chill and the heat permeating through the glass windows and helps keep the condensation away, while also protecting against rain, hail, extreme wind or UV damage.

  1. Privacy

Window shutters allow you to block visibility into your home whenever you like, offering peace of mind in knowing that nobody can see in. Go about your day or night with the knowledge that your home life is not visible to the outside world, and open up any room to sunlight and the outdoors whenever you wish.

Security shutters are in higher demand than ever as security has become a priority, and contemporary roller shutters are able to protect in style.
