When you think of shutters, you think of the many security shutters that you see on the high street protecting the buildings, but now these kinds of shutters are also being installed in homes all around Australia. They can also be used to protect your home and are a great deterrent to would be burglars. As well as being good deterrents to thieves, they also look great in any home and come in a number of colours as well. When fitted, they are fitted close to the windows themselves and so are very difficult to get past for the opportunist thief.
Roller shutters in Perth have many applications. Businesses use them for warehouses, offices and even as a door on their vehicles. Homes can use them for their garages and windows to provide additional security and they offer many benefits that traditional windows and doors don’t provide. Here are just a few of the top benefits of installing roller shutters in your home.
- Sun Protection – In Perth, the sun can get quite hot and just putting up some curtains or blinds is not going to provide the protection you need, to stop the heat from coming into your home. Too many UV rays are harmful and so the roller shutters will help to absorb most of these and also keep the heat out of your home. In the Winter months when it is much colder, the roller shutters will help to keep the heat in your home where it should be. All of these uses help reduce your utility bills, so you pay less for your air conditioner and heating.
- Better Privacy – Roller shutters are a great way to get the privacy you want, but is so difficult to achieve. Some homes in Perth don’t have the luxury of a wall all around and so roller shutters provide a great alternative to this. If you live at the street level, then people can easily look into your home and impede upon your privacy. Roller shutters allow you to stop prying eyes from looking in. Roller shutters also allow you to control the amount of light that comes into your home. You just roll them up when you want to light up the inside of your home and pull them down, when you want to reduce the light a little.
- Storm Protection – Ocassionally, we experience strong storms in the Perth area and lots of trees and branches are caught up in the wind and may hit your windows and break them. If that happens then the elements can cause further harm to the inside of your home. Roller shutters are strong enough to protect your windows from branches and trees as they are made from strong material that can stand up to most things. Similarly, they will protect you in the event of forest and bush fires, when hot embers are floating around in the wind.
