Types of Roller Shutters
Global Roller shutters are an important home security device that can help keep you and your family safe from intruders. There are many different kinds of roller shutters to consider for your home, including aluminum or wood shutter doors, manual or electric rolling shutter systems, and full-view or slatted panels. It is important to compare the features of each type before making a purchase decision.
Before buying new rollershutters it’s important to compare features such as cost, look, ease of installation and durability in order find the right ones for your needs.
Aluminum or wood shutter doors are a good choice if you want to keep your exterior look consistent. They typically cost less than other types and come in many different styles, but may not last as long because they don’t seal the opening like slats do.
Manual rolling shutter systems are great for homeowners who want to have a low-maintenance home security system and don’t mind having to open the shutters manually each time they leave or come back home. These types of systems typically cost less than electric ones, but installing them can be more difficult because you need access around your windows and doors. They also require hinges that will peek out from the wall and may not mesh well with certain exterior aesthetics.
Full view roller shutters offer flexibility in choosing how much visibility you want while still providing protection against intruders through slats made of durable wood, fiberglass, aluminum or vinyl plastic panels which vary in thicknesses depending on desired viewing distance. This type provides an attractive look and is ideal for homeowners who want to be able to see outside from the inside, but they may not work well if you have a lot of windows or doors. Slatted panels are also available that can provide full viewing at a lower cost than other types because it comes with less features.
Electric rollershutters are best for people who need an easy DIY installation option. However, they can be more expensive than manual shutters and require electricity nearby which cannot always be found at all locations.
