What is the purpose of roller shutters?
Roller Shutters are a great solution for many issues including:
Save on heating and cooling – Electric roller shutters can be an effective way to help keep you home cool in Summer and warm in Winter. Lighter coloured shutters offer the best solution for keeping your home cool as they are best at reflecting the light and heat away from your home. In cooler areas such as Kilmore, Broadford, Lancefield and Kyneton, they can be a great way to keep your house warm and prevent condensation occurring on your windows which can lead to mould and mildew. Perfect for West, East and North facing windows, and being electric you can easily open your shutters once the sun has past.
Reducing outside noise – Aluminium roller shutters are very effective at reducing outside noise. They are perfect for reducing noise from neighbours as well as traffic and wind noise.
Weather protection – Aluminium roller shutters help protect your windows from storm damage by providing a physical barrier against rain, wind and flying debris. Perfect for windows that face gum trees or windy areas such as Wallan, Wandong/Heathcote Junction and homes on hillsides.
Fire protection against radiant heat and airborne ashes – Aluminium roller shutters provide protection against radiant heat and airborne ashes from bush and grass fires. Perfect for country areas, if safe, switch your shutters to the closed position before you leave your house for safety to help protect your home.
Privacy and visual deterrent against forced entry – Aluminium roller shutters vary in degrees of security, with thinner and thicker options available. The standard residential shutters provide complete privacy and some degree of security with more secure options available for shop fronts and factories.
Blockout from light – Electric roller shutters provide blockout from light in a matter of seconds with just a touch of a button. Making it a great option for shift workers or nursery windows.
