Particular Benifits of Roller Shutters


Protection from break­-ins

Roller shutters have proven themselves to be an effective stopgap against intruders and would be break-ins. Roller shutters are fitted to the seams of the door or window itself, and, unlike other types of window furnishings, are nearly impossible to remove within a short space of time. They are also highly resistant to being pulled back, requiring a huge amount of energy to do so.

As well as providing a purely physical deterrent, they are also visually imposing to thieves. More often than not, intruders looking to break into a house will bypass any home with roller shutters installed, due to the knowledge of the points discussed above. Using guided rails for your roller shutters will enhance this visual deterrent, as there are no screws visible from the exterior, therefore providing no easy access to your home or business.


Protection from the sun

More than any other consideration, protecting the interior of your home from the heat is perhaps the greatest aspect when choosing to buy roller shutters. Whilst conventional curtains and indoor blinds will suffice to a certain point, once the window itself heats up, these window coverings will heat up too. This leads to a gradual increase in the temperature of the home’s interior, where it is difficult to cool without the need to turn on an air conditioner.

Roller blinds, however, sufficiently block out the sun’s heat from the entry point; the outside of the window. Roller shutters are insulated with a type of polyurethane foam that acts in much the same way as your typical home insulation works. This stops around 70% of the heat before it reaches the home, and poses an additional benefit during winter, where it will retain over 60% of the heat inside your home.


Protection from the weather

One other aspect of roller shutters that conventional window coverings simply do not have is that they also protect your windows and your home from inclement weather. This is a particularly big selling point in a city such as Melbourne, were hailstorms and high speed winds are an often occurrence. Simply rolling the shutters down eliminates the possibility of broken windows, wind lash, and window leaks.

Roller shuttersin Melbourne, due to their attachment to the seam of the window or door, are also highly resistant to rattling under high winds. They are also highly durable, and instances of fallen branches or debris picked up from the wind will not severely damage the roller shutters. Modern roller shutters are tested to withstand wind speeds of over 100 kph, so you can rest assured, knowing that your roller shutters will keep your safe during a storm.

Reducing noise levels

The insulation used inside of roller shutters is also an effective way to cut out exterior noises, either from passing cars, or those noisy neighbours next door. Roller shutters have been shown to cut out up to 50% of the decibel level of ambient noise, and are ideal for those living by a busy road, or whom are located nearby a train station or an airport. They are also an effective way to cut out noise from barking dogs almost completely.



Maintaining privacy and controlling light

The ease of which roller shutters can be moved, especially if used in conjunction with a
motorised remote system, means that they are more adept than other coverings at sunlight control. During the night, their fitting along the seams of the windows of your bedroom will effectively cut out all of the light from street lamps. Whilst during the day, they can be either completely opened or partially adjusted, completely to your preferred levels.

This is also true of the privacy that they can offer you, another important consideration in this day and age. Uniquely amongst window furnishings, roller shutters are the only ones that can maintain 100% privacy, whenever you need it. Their complete opaqueness and lack of gaps, as opposed to curtains and some types of blinds, means that you will be able to maintain your privacy to the highest level possible.
