In Depth Look at Our Fortress Shutter

Our Most Secure Roller Shutter

Ultimate Shutter is one of just a few Australia shutter installers & manufacturers who has more than 1 shutter available for sale and the only company we know about that has three completely different shutter systems to suit all types of buyers. Our Prime shutter is for those who want to save a little but still have beautiful shutters. Our Slimline product maximises aesthetics & security in an aluminium shutter while our Fortress is a steel security beast designed primarily for homeowners & businesses who want maximum security.

Today, we are going to dive a bit deeper into our security shutter, the Fortress. This shutter is a poly-filled 42mm steel profile that is more secure and much stronger than almost any roller shutter. With a reinforced bottom rail, key switch available and with a max width of 4.2 metres it's also our largest shutter.

Pros of the Fortress

  • Maximum security
  • All of the other benefits associated with roller shutters
  • Insulated for energy savings
  • Reduces glare - 98% light block out
  • 85% noise reduction
  • 35% more energy efficient than a window alone.

As you would expect with a budget-friendly shutter product, there are a few cons to consider before you choose a product.

Cons of the Fortress

  • Heavy shutter - at 9.4 kg per square metre. 
  • Less energy efficient than Prime & Slimline shutters.
  • Available in four colours, not our whole Colorbond range.

The Fortress is primarily used as a security shutter. The Fortress also has a reinforced bottom rail, shutter locks and a steel profile so will outperform the Prime & Slimline at a security function.

Silver is a very popular colour for this security shutter. You don't have to select the same colour slats as frame so you can match the frame colours to your home and the slat colour to your accent colours (typically garage, window or door, or roof colours.)
