What Are Roller Shutters?
Roller shutters are sectional overhead doors or windows made up of horizontal metal bars that manually or automatically rise to open and unfold to close. You’d frequently see them at warehouses and retail shops when they close at the end of the day.
They are used for several reasons:
Protection from Intruders
Roller shutters are mainly used for security against vandals and intruders. They are tightly fitted to doors or windows and cannot easily be destroyed.
Roller shutters block of noise coming from the outside. If you’re living in the city, near the main roads, they help solve your problem.
Shutters work like curtains and blinds. They provide a layer of protection from peeping neighbours and passers-by.
Light and Ventilation Control
The same concept applies to light and air coming through doors and windows. If you feel like there’s too much sunlight or breeze from the outside, lower the roller shutters. Push them back up if you need more air or light.
When glass windows or doors get hot because of direct sunlight or the temperature outside, they heat curtains and blinds. Insulated roller shutters stop heat from coming into your house or workplace.
Strong winds from a storm or blocks of ice from hale, rattle windows and doors. Heavy debris can break them. Summer heat can come through metal window panes and the ground—the same with winter’s coldness.
Roller shutters can act as deflectors that protect you from such adverse weather conditions. They also help save on electricity bills as you end up not turning on the heater or the air conditioner as often or for longer.
