Let our professionally experienced team install your Security Shutters
An aluminium security shutter is a type of door or window shutter consisting of many horizontal slats hinged together. It provides protection against wind, rain, burglary and theft.
Just like all security installations, shutters are a long-term solution. They are not designed to fail, so you have the right to expect a long life from them.
To get a long life out of anything, it needs to be durable and aluminium is just that. Aluminium does not corrode in the same way that iron does, and it does not rot like timber. That is why you see aluminium used in the construction of boats and marine fittings. Aluminium can withstand a long life exposed to the harsh weather. This makes it among the most durable products on the market.
If your home is hit by debris during a violent storm, it has the potential to snap timber shutters and damage your window. Aluminium, on the other hand, can withstand this. Even when subject to high impact collisions, aluminium will retain its shape. In some cases the aluminium shutters can bend, however they are still likely to protect your windows. To enhance this durability even further, our aluminium products are powder coated. Powder coated aluminium can withstand even more punishment than regular aluminium. Powder coating is a method of painting the aluminium and it works very effectively. The coat of paint is another protective barrier, which prevents anything from compromising the surface of the aluminium. To top it off, powder coated aluminium also looks great! It is a fantastic security and design feature for any home. This is just one of the many reasons that aluminium shutters are becoming a favourite for homeowners in South Africa.
Aluminium is renowned for its strength. You can find aluminium being used in all sorts of applications for that exact reason. Many load bearing and off road trailers are constructed from aluminium, as it is incredibly strong.
Strength is the cornerstone of security. If you have a strong shutter, then any would-be intruder is going to have a lot of trouble bypassing it. Even if they pull, push, hit or cut, any intruder will find themselves with a real struggle on their hands. Remember, the longer it takes to get into your home, the less likely it is that anyone will try. Intruders, thieves and vandals all look for an easy target.
With our aluminium security shutters, you can take your home off their list. To get through our aluminium security shutters, an intruder would have to make a great deal of noise. This would inevitably draw attention to them, which is why aluminium security shutters deter budding intruders very effectively.
Weight might not seem that important in security. In fact, you might even think a bit of weight is preferable. However, when it comes to the steel vs aluminium debate, extra weight is not always a good thing. steel is considerably heavier than aluminium. This means that it places more strain on the screws that are holding the steel shutters together. If the steel is then compromised in any way – from rust or impact – the mounting screws will not be as strong as they should be. The constant strain placed on the steel shutters by their own weight can take its toll over time. In some cases, it can even cause damage to your home. Aluminium shutters, on the other hand, are very light. Aluminium has one of the best strength to weight ratios of any material. This means that it will place very little pressure on its mounts. As a result, the aluminium shutters will retain their strength indefinitely. Aluminium has an incredible number of advantages and we have covered only a few of them. The fact is, aluminium is simply unbeatable when it comes to security shutters.
