Your Guide to Roller Shutters

08 February 2023

The purpose of this blog entry is to – hopefully – answer any questions you might have about the increasingly popular external window coverings known as roller shutters (available from us here at Sunblinds and Curtains). For those who want to go into more detail about these products, you’ll find our contact information at the end of the article.

What are Roller Shutters?

Roller shutters are like a “curtain” of interlocking horizontal slats built into a window frame that is rolled down to cover that window (and rolled up out of the way when not required). We can perfectly fit our sturdy aluminium shutters to your home in such a way that they will look like they were always meant to be there!

How Do They Improve a Home?

Besides the fact that a brand-new set of these matching shutters is quite attractive, one of the main reasons a growing number of people are choosing them for their houses (and other buildings) is they greatly assist with temperature control. Roller shutters make cooling easier in summer and heating easier in winter. As well as blocking out light, they also help with noise control – the importance of which should never be underestimated.

Are They Expensive?

These durable aluminium shutters are surprisingly affordable, especially when taking into account their various advantages and the likelihood they will save you money on future energy bills. They are an investment in your home that will be a definite selling point should you ever decide to put it on the market.

Do They Increase Security?

Lowered shutters make it much harder for potential intruders to see who/what is inside the building and, most importantly, to gain access to it through a window. Basically, they are an effective deterrent to thieves.

Are They Available in Different Colours?

From Sunblinds and Curtains – yes, they are. We have roller shutters in 14 stylish colours to suit various exterior colour schemes.

Can They be Motorised?

Once again, from Sunblinds and Curtains – yes, they can. If you’d prefer not to do everything manually, we can install motorised shutters with housings that match the colour of the shutter slats. These may be battery-powered or wired into the mains. Best of all, you are able to operate the motorised shutters from inside your home with an easy-to-use remote control.

Will They Last a Long Time?

Our aluminium shutters are designed to deal with the often punishing Aussie weather conditions and have been “proven in battle” thanks to many previous happy customers. Treated well, they should give you years of excellent service. As stated above, they represent a worthwhile investment in the property in question.
