Household burglaries and ‘break-ins’ are considered two of the most widespread crimes throughout Australia. In 2009-2010, there were roughly 335,700 ‘break-ins’ recorded – an alarming figure for Australian home-owners.
Of these burglaries, it is reported at roughly 39% of these occur through forced windows. But don’t stress, there are a number of steps that can be taken to keep your home safe, and prevent burglaries.
In Australia, homes have often utilised flyscreens – a lightweight mesh screen attached to an aluminium frame. While these allow cool air to travel through the house; they provide little to no security for your home. Roller shutters on the other hand offer a solution that provides extensive protection for your home, as well as numerous benefits to:
- Energy savings
- Noise control
- Light control
- Storm and hail protection
- Bushfire protection
Security Roller Shutters
So how can EzyFit Roller Shutters keep your home safe? Your home’s windows are perhaps the easiest and most obvious point of entry for potential burglars. Depending on the level of cover and privacy, unobstructed windows can be an unfortunate demonstration of your home’s accessibility. The installation of residential security shutters can provide your home with privacy, security and protection.
The advantage of roller shutters is not only in the prevention of potential burglars, but also in the discouragement. By presenting the image of a secure and protected home, you become a much less attractive target for potential break-ins. While many would picture security shutters as unattractive, labour-intense additions to your home, this doesn’t have to be the case.
Our roller shutters are completely motorised, and are made from tough interlocking aluminium slats. These roller shutters are available in nine unique ColorBond colours, allowing you to choose a solution that matches your home’s aesthetics. You can use our online Colour Visualiser to help choose a colour combination that suits your home. Our motorised roller shutters are specially designed for do-it-yourself measurement and installation – saving you time and money. Security screens on the other hand may require professional fitters or installers, and additional cost on the base product.
The shutters are made to fit neatly into your window covering or area, and provide a strong, durable, tight sealed barrier against intruders. When the roller shutter is fully closed, the slats are in the locking-position, and cannot be lifted or pulled out of the shutters. This creates a solid and almost impenetrable barrier for your home’s windows.
While our roller shutter provide a significant security benefit for your home – that’s not all they’re good for. They provide a number of lifestyle and economic benefits for your home, improving the privacy and control you have in your home.
In Australia, there is often a trade-off for window coverings between security and climate control. Home owners are after a product that’s going to keep their home safe without accentuating the effects of our climate. Our motorised roller shutters effectively address each of these concerns. With the motorised roller shutters, you can keep your home up to fifteen degrees warmer during winter, and fifteen degrees cooler during summer!
