Are Security Shutters Worth It?

Are Security Shutters Worth It?

Security is not something to be taken lightly in today’s world. It’s a serious matter that demands due attention from every homeowner. The mere feeling of insecurity within your own home is an affront to your personal safety, a fundamental need outlined in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. No one should live in fear within their own dwelling.

In this day and age, as crime rates and home invasions surge, many individuals strive to fortify their residences with comprehensive security features, including CCTV, alarms, and particularly, security shutters. Whether you own a property in the bustling city of Melbourne, the vibrant heart of Sydney, the tranquil expanse of Adelaide, the sun-kissed city of Perth, or the tropical oasis of Brisbane, ensuring your home is your fortress is of paramount importance.

Installing security shutters is a natural step in enhancing your house’s security, making it a sanctuary for you and your family. Because everyone deserves a home that isn’t just a dwelling, but a safe haven.

One of the additional securities that you can install in your house would be roller shutters for your windows & doors. Although roll-up shutters get a bad rap as uninviting or “ugly” the overall aesthetic appeal has changed for the better over the past few years. Unlike their colour-striped, bulky and manual predecessors that always stay closed, our premium quality roller shutters are Colorbond with colours to match your home and our Slimline shutter has a much smaller pelmet box and overall profile to minimise that typical metal-everywhere or dated feeling.

When people say “shutters are ugly,” this is why:

Sure, if you put a cream shutter with beige stripes on the red brick it’s pretty ugly. Same with a multicoloured red and brown thick stripe with a big, obnoxious box.

Even if you might have only usually seen roller shutter doors in commercial buildings, why not try having one in your house? Even if these roller shutter doors have been around for 25 years now, the manufacturers still continue to inject them with modern technology. Although most companies call their product a “security” shutter, almost none even contain a basic shutter lock to prevent the shutter from being yanked open.

Our Modern security window shutters are better looking, more secure and stronger than their classic counterparts. We strongly recommend the Titan Roller Shutter for your home security or the Slimline Shutter if you are most concerned with the aesthetic appeal. Take a look at a Slimline shutter with Blue Ridge shutters. These shutters actually complement the home and bring a contrasting colour into the lower half of the home. In this case, the shutters actually make the home more aesthetically appealing.
