Roll up doors for residential properties can be installed on your windows, as well as the opening to your garage, adding an additional element of security to your home. With the escalating crime rate in Australia, we need to do everything we can to prevent thieves from breaking into our homes; roller shutters on your windows and garage provide a proven deterrent to thieves who will experience great difficulty breaking into your home, likely moving on to an easier prospect.
Increased curb appeal
The colour and design of your roller shutter doors can be easily matched to your home’s external colour scheme, significantly increasing the curb appeal of your property. For those of you who are updating your home prior to putting it on the market, the additional security provided by roll up doors and the increased curb appeal will both help to increase the value and the appeal of your property to buyers.
Sun protection, noise & privacy
In Queensland it’s not unusual for the summer sun to pour into our homes, raising the internal temperature and fading our curtains, rugs, carpets and furnishings. Whilst curtains and internal blinds can help reduce this heat transfer, external roller shutters prevent the heat from reaching your windows, resulting in far less heat transfer through the windows and inside your home.
With roller shutters, you can not only control the amount of sunlight that enters your home at any time during the day, but you can also limit the amount of noise that enters as well. Many of us live on busy streets, have noisy neighbours or experience intermittent neighbourhood noises that can interrupt the smooth running of your day. Roller shutters will significantly reduce this ambient noise, allowing you to feel more comfortable in your own home without feeling stressed about the constant barrage of noises outside your home.
Another great benefit of installing roller shutters in residential properties is the increased privacy they provide. For those of us that live on small blocks of land, we can feel quite inhibited when we realise that our neighbours can potentially see right into our homes or when passers-by can look into our homes as they walk along the street. All you need to do is to pull down the external shutters and your privacy is assured!
Protection against the weather
Roll up shutters are the ideal protection for your home in the rainy season when storms are likely to happen fairly frequently in Queensland. High winds can blast the rain and even the hail against your windows, breaking the glass and causing undue damage to your home. If you install roller shutters however, your home has a significant amount of additional protection against the damaging storms that seem to be happening more frequently of late.
Bush fires are also a major concern to many home owners, but roller shutters can also help in this situation as well. Bushfire rated roller shutters can increase the amount of time it takes for the intense heat to break your windows and flying embers to enter your home, giving your family additional time to reach safety.
