Increasing the feeling of security is a matter of concern to many homeowners. Appropriate precautions can meet this need for security. And this is where roller shutters come into play. Installing high-quality roller shutters is probably the most affordable and efficient solution to securing the living area. They are resistant and durable and integrated into the living space to save space, especially in shaft and front-end designs. They are also easy to clean and maintain, which makes them even more efficient.
Roller Shutters as Burglary Protection
If security is important to you, roller shutters’ property as burglar protection is likely one of the most important advantages. Burglars find it difficult to get past roller shutters because they are very close to the window or balcony door. Even front-mounted roller shutters can only be removed with great effort and noise – and the luxury of wasting time is just as impossible for dark figures as the risk of drawing attention to themselves through noisy dismantling measures. Veneered running rails also hide the screw connections when the shutters are closed so that it is not even visible from the outside, where the installations could be removed as efficiently as possible.
Can roller shutters alone offer sufficient protection against break-ins? No. That would be saying too much. However, they create an additional hurdle for bad guys to overcome. And in combination with alarm systems and security features for smart homes, they definitely help to feel safe in your own four walls at all times – even when you are not at home at all. Because:
Automatic Shutters Can Act as Presence Simulators
This is also an important aspect of security. Especially during the holiday season, you want to be certain that your belongings are protected at home. Installing automatic roller shutter systems and integrating them into any smart home software can be suggested outside that you are in your apartment or house while you are away.
Roller Shutters as Sun Protection and For Temperature Regulation
Curtains and curtains or blinds can promote coziness in the apartment and guarantee a certain degree of privacy. Still, they do not provide protection against solar radiation or heating of the interior. The decorative window hangings also do not manage to lose the heat in winter. As soon as the window glass is heated up, it will release the excess heat into the environment. So it is important to ensure that the window panes cannot heat up in the first place. And that works best with insulating roller shutters. Although the roller shutter heats up, the air that can circulate between the pane and the roller shutter releases much less heat to the glass. As a result, the windows heat up significantly less, give off noticeably less heat to the interior, and in summer, it remains pleasantly cool inside.
You can safely save money for air conditioning and fans’ operation by investing in functional, high-quality roller shutters. And in winter it works exactly the other way around with the heating so that you don’t have to heat as much. Overall, you save energy and costs with roller shutters and indirectly protect the environment.
In addition to the advantages mentioned, the protection systems against burglars, sun, and heat and energy loss are also ideal for protecting window glass from hail or heavy rain, such as shielding outside noise and independently regulating privacy and lighting mood.
