Aluminium Shutters Create Safe Areas

Using aluminium shutters to create a safe haven in your home

We’ve mentioned before in this blog how a safe area within your home can be a life-saver, but have you ever considered using aluminium shutters to seal off your safe haven?  Most of us imagine a conventional steel security gate as being the best option to close off a bedroom wing, an upstairs area or the transition doorway between garage and house, and they work very well.  But an aluminium roller shutter can do the job equally well and may fit in better with your lifestyle.

Automated aluminium shutters

Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium shutters can be fitted to almost any size doorway, even long, narrow ones like the one between garage and house pictured here.  They can be fully automated and operated at the touch of a button, which is great when you’re in a hurry or your arms are filled with grocery bags.  It means children can operate them easily too, closing up the aluminium shutters if they’re home alone or feeling a bit nervous.  And conversely, the shutters are simple to open if they need to get out in an emergency.

Choose your aluminium shutter design

Our Trellidor franchises can offer you a choice of shutter design in our aluminium shutter range.  The slats can be:

  • Solid, presenting a closed wall when the aluminium shutter is closed.
  • Vented, which allows limited vision and light through the shutter but when fully closed presents a solid wall.
  • Punched, where punched gaps allow you to see out when the shutter is closed. The gaps can be fitted with polycarbonate inserts to keep out wind.

The choice of aluminium shutter design is entirely personal.  All the options do the same job of providing excellent security when the roller shutter is closed up for the night, or during the day when necessary.

Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium shutters have been strength tested and found to perform to the high standards we set for all our products, so they will do a great job of sealing off your safe haven.

Our aluminium shutters roll up neatly into a shutter box, so they’re completely out of the way when you don’t need them.  If you’re building a new home or doing an alteration, the shutter box can be recessed into the wall and out of sight, but still accessible for motor repairs.
