Roller shutters are a great way to add security and are becoming a very popular method of securing your home against theft while providing you with complete privacy.
But more than a way of securing your home against intruders and theft they act as a very energy efficient method of insulation to any building. Roller shutters can block out at least 70% of the harsh summer heat from your home as well as approximately 70% of the cold winter chill. Therefore the costs of heating and cooling your home will be reduced considerably. Roller shutters will also protect your windows from high winds and hail during heavy storms.
In addition to the security and energy saving aspects of roller shutters they are a great solution for shift workers who need to sleep during the day or babies and young children who wake when the sun comes up. Depending on the type of roller shutter you choose, they can block out up to 100% of the natural light. Great for rooms that face directly to the intense early morning light or the harsh afternoon sun. Perfect to block out an annoying street light, the neighbour’s spot light or car head lights and roller shutters will also reduce outside noise considerably.
Roller shutters are installed externally and come in a range of options including manual or electric, battery powered and solar, all operated by remote control. There are many styles and colours of roller shutters to choose from, so you can find the right one to suit your home. There are also fire rated roller shutters which are a fantastic way to protect your home against the ravages of bush fires.
So get a few quotes from professional roller shutter companies that install roller shutters manufactured to Australian standards for the Australian climate. They don’t fade and neither will your furnishings. You will have years of protection from theft, harsh weather and fire, giving you peace of mind while adding style and value to your home.
