Generally, outdoor roller shutters are very secure and perfectly suitable to protect any items as they will deter any criminals or burglars from attempting to break into a premise for many reasons:
- The noise alone of a metal roller shutter would make any attempted break-ins extremely obvious and would give the location of the criminal immediately.
- Those attempting to break in would need to bring heavy-duty tools and equipment in order to get through the window roller shutter and try to cut through the shutter material itself. The whole scene would be extremely loud and time-consuming, especially for someone who does not want to get caught breaking in.
On the other hand, the security level of a roller shutter also depends on its material. Of course, there are benefits and disadvantages associated with it. Let’s have a look at them:
Steel Roller Shutter vs Aluminium Roller Shutter
- The main benefit of steel shutters is the great resistance it offers compared to aluminium. Steel is much more popular for commercial roller shutters in industrial markets such as heavy-duty doors and warehouses.
- Aluminium roller shutters are usually installed in residential premises. The material is more suitable for domestic uses because of its lighter material, making it possible to operate manually.
- first & second storey
- bay window

For example, any loose connections or damaged parts in the shutter box may be noticed and targeted by thieves, who may attempt to break into your premise. To avoid this get your roller shutters installed by the experts instead of getting them from other retail shops like Bunnings.
Ultimately, In areas where crime is more common in Australia, greater security measures may be recommended, such as the addition of CCTV and home alarm systems.
