We all want to feel safe and secure in our own homes. Also, we would all like our homes to be a beautiful space that we enjoy spending time in. Now, when it comes to securing your home, the first and most obvious thought would more than likely be burglar bars. And, while these have proven to be effective, they are never really the most pleasing on the eye, no matter how pretty the design is or how much effort has been put into the finish. Luckily for the discerning homeowner, there is now another option: security shutters.
Reasons why you should consider security shutters for your home:
Security shutters are custom-fitted horizontal window covers that mimic wooden shutters of yesteryear, but which are made of solid aluminium to offer enhanced protection. These window covers come with a double locking system to increase safety and offers the same, if not better, protection than traditional burglar bars.
One of the main features that set security shutters apart from burglar bars is the fact that they are stylish. Not just acceptable or not noticeable, but actually beautiful to look at. The design is clean and sleek, the finishing is neat, and it is available in a range of colours to match your environment.
Security shutters are exceptionally easy to operate and allows you full control over the amount of light or visibility you prefer in a room. This way, you can either close out the light from outside completely, let in the light while restricting visibility through the window, or enjoy unobstructed views of the outdoors. Your choice.
Maintenance is as easy as can be. To begin with, the aluminium finish is rust-resistant. Then, simply take a damp cloth and wipe it across the smooth surface to clear any dust away. That’s it. It literally is that simple to keep your window covers looking as good as new.
Another huge benefit of security shutters is that they do not only replace the need for burglar bars, but also the need for additional window covers such as curtains or blinds, thus saving you the money and effort of buying and maintaining these window dressings.
