WHAT IS A ROLLSHUTTER? A rollshutter for home our business consists of interlocking slats or profiles. The profiles are made out of rollformed aluminum with either a dense polyurethane foam core or a hard resin core, depending on the size and strenght of profile required. We offer a variety of sizes, strengths and operators, depending on your unique requirements. They are available manually operated with cranks or torsion spring operators or they can be motorized and operated with a switch or remote. Locks are available for added security.
The guide rails in which the shutter rolls up and down can be ordered in various sizes and configurations, depending on the amount of security you require.
**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 act of vandalism. For very high risk areas, consider combining rollshutters with other security devices such as alarm systems.
Rollshutters for Security
Rollshutters are one of the best ways to keep out intruders and discourage vandals. 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. Worldwide, people use rollshutters to secure their homes when away, and their businesses when closed for the day.
Rollshutters may be lowered completely at night to form strong curtains that will prevent potential burglars from breaking into your home or business. Since rollshutters are controlled from inside, no unauthorized operation can occur. For additional security choose automatic locking mechanisms. Usually, closed rollshutters will be such a visual deterrent that no break-in attempts are made. A potential burglar will consider it easier to break into a neighboring business without rollshutters. Rollshutters 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 with the strength you need.
In addition, rollshutters provide a barrier in front of your expensive glass preventing costly replacement and rising insurance costs. Add graphics and you can advertise your business even when it’s closed.
Rollshutters for Privacy
A closed rollshutter can provide privacy, creating a buffer between open and closed area of your business. Close off food preparation areas, reception areas, bars or any other area you do not want accessed by the public while you’re open.
If you or your staff need to work late – after closing – with your rollshutter rolled down – no one can see that you’re all alone and vulnerable. Most often just removing the temptation is enough. Most crimes are impulsive – smash and grab. If they can’t see what’s behind the curtain – they will generally go somewhere easier and less dangerous for them.
Rollshutters for Vandalism Protection
Rollshutters are used throughout the world as protection from vandalism in areas of congregation such as schools, concession stands & recreation facilities. Vandalism including broken windows or destroyed property inside a closed building can result in thousands of dollars in repairs, replacements, lengthy police reports in the middle of the night – and skyrocketing insurance costs.

Rollshutters for Solar Control
Because rollshutters can block up to 90% of solar heat gain, many of our customers have been able to eliminate the need for air conditioning completely, thereby reducing purchase, installation and energy costs and yet enjoying a comfortable environment.
A rollshutter’s effectiveness lies in the fact that it’s on the outside …stopping the light before it penetrates the glass and traps the heat inside. It’s beauty lies in the fact that you have control over how much or how little light you want to let in simply by pushing a remote control button!
Rollshutters for Storm Protection
Our wild, west coast winter winds can sometimes wreak havoc. Rollshutters provide protection for the windows in your home against flying debris, tree branches and driving rain. Because they are mounted on the exterior of your home, rollshutters are extremely effective in protecting vulnerable windows and doors from driving rain, high winds, hail and flying debris that can occur during storms – especially here on the west coast. Homes or cottages that are locked up for the season and that have broken glass from flying debris in moderate winds can sustain enormous further damage from continued exposure to the elements. Rollshutters can also help eliminate water leakage in poorly sealed french doors that are exposed to wind and rain.
