Having security shutters for your home is fast becoming very popular for residents and commercial businesses across Australia. The main reason being the extra security function they provide for a window.
No longer can a window be an entry point for a potential intruder. With roller shutters installed the window instead becomes a strong point for the home, and will deter and also stop a potential intruder from breaking into the property or business.
Security shutters are very advantageous for a property that is not occupied, whether its from going on holiday for a few weeks or between rental periods or for any other reason.
If the property is left unoccupied for any length of time and it becomes known it will become a target for thieves.
By installing security shutters it is possible to reduce this threat and also gain the advantages that security shutters hold that are often not known about in the Australian lifestyle and climate.
For example, roller shutters can massively reduce sunlight coming through a window, which is a huge reason on its own people buy security shutters/roller shutters on their property.
Electricity consumption is greatly reduced with security shutters because when sunlight passes through a window, the room heats up significantly. Just like being in a car, except your whole room and house will heat up instead.
Having roller shutters down during hot summer days will greatly reduce the need to rely on air conditioning to cool the room down. Stopping the heat from the source is the ultimate way to save electricity and energy.
Very useful if the window is directly facing the sunlight all through the day.
Noise reduction is also a lesser known advantage to security shutters.
Especially useful if you live close to a busy road and have trouble sleeping because of road noises, dogs barking, or noisey neighbours.
Security shutters can greatly reduce the noise from the outside and give you some peace and quiet despite the loud noises going on outside.
Roller shutters also provide Light control. There is nothing worse than a young child wanting to sleep during the day only to have problems because of light coming through the window and making them unsettled.
You can also roll the shutters half up, or down or anywhere in between to fully control exactly how much light you want coming through the window.
Very useful too if you have a cinema room or light affecting tv or screen viewing.
The overall security benefit of roller shutters cannot be understimated.
With 225,900 burglaries in 2017 (or one every 3 minutes) in Australia it is important and the responsibility of the home owner to do what is required to your home to reduce the threat.
There could be nothing scarier than encountering a home invader when you know in the back of your mind it could be avoided.
Security doors are also a recommended advantageous addition to any home, as it gives you an extra layer that you can interact with people who knock on your door and reduces the visibility of yourself, whilst being able to see them with no issues.
Having a locked security door will be another obstacle for any intruder and a fully shuttered up home is almost impossible for an intruder to break through without making a LOT of noise in the process with heavy machinery to cut through the roller shutters or security door.
It is no accident that roller shutters are fast becoming popular in Australia, especially in Adelaide, Cairns and Central Coast areas.
