Are Security Shutters Worth It?

Security is not something that you should can just toy around with these days. This is a serious matter that has to be appropriately addressed by anyone who owns a home & property. Actually, even the thought that you are no longer safe is an attempt on your personal security. When you feel like you are not secure within your own home anymore, it is time to do something about it. Personal safety is one of the basic needs of man, according to Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs. Nobody deserves to feel scared in their own home.

Nowadays, with crime rates and home invasion soaring, many people have tried to make their house feel safer by incorporating more security features from CCTV & alarms to security shutters. Your house is your ultimate fortress. Thus, it is only natural that you would make it so that it will be the most secured place for you and your family.

One of the additional securities that you can install in our 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 shutters are Colorbond 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 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 it 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.

Modern security shutters are better looking, more secure and stronger than their classic counterparts. We strongly recommend the Fortress 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.
