Security is essential for any home or business, and potential intruders often choose a window, door or garage door as a primary entry point. Additionally, strong winds, harsh weather conditions and extreme temperatures can cause damage to windows and doors, leading to costly repairs. Installing roller shutters is an excellent way to better secure your property.
Door and window roller shutters are designed to protect your home or business from harsh weather and prevent unauthorized visitors. We offer a variety of residential and commercial applications for Victoria and the south island as well as the gulf islands.
Our roll shutters come in a variety of different sizes, strengths and ways to operate them, depending on your unique requirements. They are operated either manually with cranks or torsion spring operators or can be motorized so they operate with the push of a button. Locks are available for added security.
Investing in our window and door security solutions will give you peace of mind knowing you have that extra layer of security from intruders or inclement weather. Get in touch to schedule a consultation and discuss the best custom security solution for your specific needs.
ROLL SHUTTERS FOR SECURITY
Residential and commercial security roller shutters are some of the best ways to keep out intruders and discourage vandals. It is unlike using an alarm system that alerts you to the fact that someone unauthorized is already in the premises. We believe that keeping them out is the best solution.
Security roll shutters may be lowered completely at night to form strong curtains that prevent potential burglars from breaking into your property. Since roll shutters are controlled from the inside, no unauthorized operation can occur. To increase the security of your building, choose automatic locking mechanisms. Usually, closed roller shutters are such a visual deterrent that no break-in attempts are made. Roll up security shutters on your windows or other access points like patio doors can thus stop break-ins before they occur. We have many different strengths and sizes of curtains to provide you with the security you want and the strength you need. In addition, roll up door and window shutters provide a barrier in front of your expensive glass, preventing costly replacement and rising insurance costs.
ROLL SHUTTERS FOR STORM PROTECTION
Roller shutters are an excellent solution to safeguard your home or business windows from various hazards, including flying debris, tree branches, and heavy rainfall. As they are installed on the exterior of a building, they provide robust protection to vulnerable windows and doors against severe weather conditions, particularly on the west coast, where storms can be relentless. In addition, homes or cottages that are closed for the season and have shattered glass due to moderate winds are at significant risk of further damage from continued exposure to the elements. Roll-up shutters can also prevent water leakage in poorly sealed French doors that are susceptible to wind and rain.
ROLL SHUTTERS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Roll shutter systems are an excellent way to be energy efficient in your home or business, as they are specially designed to protect against heat and cold. Shutters create an added layer of insulation which can significantly reduce energy costs by preventing heat loss or gain. This keeps the indoor temperature comfortable and saves money on heating and cooling bills.
You can secure your office or business by installing folding security gates. Security gates can be mounted either on the inside of the building or the outside, depending on the application. Normally mounted on the inside, thieves must first break the glass and then attempt to penetrate the gates, thereby making noise and creating more of a ‘hassle factor’ for the thief.
When open for business, the gates fold up to 15% of their closed size and can swing completely out of the way. Expanding gates create a very cost-effective way to secure your building while leaving a view of the inside. This can be desirable if you have merchandise that you wish to remain viewable when the business is closed. Our expanding gates are easily installed and require no maintenance. They are made of 1/2″ tubular steel and come in standard white or black finish but are available in any RAL colour. They come with a thumb turn lock, keyed hook lock, or simple padlock.
Expanding gates can also be used to secure interior areas within your business, such as jewelry cabinets. They are easy for staff to operate yet deter the ‘grab and run’ of highly valuable merchandise. They are sturdy enough to span open areas such as closed parking areas, closed warehouse areas, etc.
Aluminum folding grilles are the perfect way to balance visibility and security, especially in high-traffic retail areas. They offer the best in storefront protection, allowing customers to see through the grille to the other side while simultaneously restricting access. Folding grilles act as a visible barrier and effective crime deterrent without distracting from the appearance of your property or storefront. And they can be quickly and easily folded back, allowing unobstructed access to your property during business hours. That makes them an excellent security choice for a wide variety of businesses, locations, and applications.
Hung from a track at the ceiling, grilles can be open or with tempered glass between the vertical slats. They are also available with solid aluminum panels for privacy and security or perforated steel panels for extra strength. Because of the track, grilles can accommodate curved openings in almost any configuration.
Made from tough, maintenance-free aircraft-grade aluminum, they are available in custom sizes to fit any openings and have a selection of design options to choose from. Our fixed security bars are made from all-welded steel construction (no spot welds). They can be finished in any colour available and can be colour matched to your particular application.
We also offer opening security bars for bedroom windows. These security bars provide extra protection for your home, preventing intruders from entering through vulnerable windows. They are strong, durable and can only be removed from the inside of the house.
Regain your peace of mind with our bespoke retractable security solutions. Our offerings provide a perfect balance of protection, curb appeal, and superior quality. We will be with you from the initial concept to the final completion, ensuring that you and your property are entirely safeguarded.
Yes, roller shutters can block out heat to a certain extent. They help in reducing the amount of sunlight that enters the building, thereby reducing the amount of heat that gets trapped inside.
While roller shutters can be an excellent way to enhance the security of your property, it is still possible to break into them. A determined intruder armed with specialized tools or equipment may be able to bypass even the highest-quality roller shutters.
There is no absolute protection against a determined, professional burglar. Rollshutters and other security products will only lower the chances of a successful break-in or an act of vandalism. For very high-risk areas, consider combining rollshutters with other security devices, such as alarm systems.
