How Bushfire Shutters Can Save Your Home

Bushfire Shutters are essential if you live in a high-risk, bushfire-prone, country or semi-rural location. Along with the general benefits that roller shutters bring including light control, insulation and privacy, Bushfire Shutters or Fire Rated Shutters offer heavy-duty shielding from extreme heat and abrasion.

How Do They Work?

Generally, during a bushfire, houses are destroyed in two common ways. The first occurs from heat, where extreme heat causes the glass of windows to explode, or it could be magnified through the glass causing curtains and furniture inside the house to catch alight. The second way involves strong winds carrying debris that shatter windows, allowing sparks and embers to enter the building through broken windows.

Bushfire Shutters
 work to cover and protect windows, guarding from heat and holding off against debris to reduce damage and, ultimately, save the house.

SP Fire Rated Shutters

SP Shutters, Doors & Blinds
 Fire Rated Shutters are made in Australia, manufactured by people who are familiar with and understand the extreme heat and bushfires that occur here. These shutters have heat shielding properties to 40kW/m^2 and are made of quality, aluminium alloy construction.

With a commercial grade double wall extruded profile, the shutters are extremely durable and protective, and the quality powder-coated finish resists against abrasion. The roll-tight design, operation options and range of colours ensure fluid functionality that looks sleek whilst safeguarding.
