“We no longer need to sacrifice style when it comes to security,” says Duncan Snyman, managing director of American Shutters.

The Security Shutter range from American Shutters offers an elegant solution for interior designers and home owners who are looking for reliable security barriers that will provide safety without compromising the aesthetics and value of their property.

Installed throughout the home, these hinged and bi-fold Security Shutters are powder-coated in Satin White finish. As the home owner comments, “By choosing American Shutters’ Security Shutters, we didn’t have to consider unsightly burglar bars, making the house all the more attractive, with the added peace of mind of knowing that it is secure.”

The locally manufactured security shutters have undergone stringent tests, and results show consistent problem-free operation over an equivalent period of 10 years of daily opening and closing. Additional improved design elements such as overlapping frame details and ultra-close-fitting louvres deliver excellent privacy and light block. The aluminium shutters are powder-coated in a satin grey or white matte finish or a charcoal matte or textured finish as well as custom colour options, all to match their range of elegant timber shutters.

“When we decided to build our new home, American Shutters’ Security Shutters were one of the first things we decided on. We love the look, and security was an absolute priority so we were able to kill two birds with one stone. No more ‘function over form’ decisions!”

The corrosion-resistant finish means that security shutters can be installed both inside and outside. “Most clients choose to install the shutters indoors, because of their elegant aesthetics and the ease of accessibility to open and close the louvres,” says Duncan. “They are ideal for enclosing outdoor patio areas providing shelter, security and privacy and if you like precision and clean lines, you will appreciate the Gear Tilt system which has ultra-smooth louvre control and no visible tilt rods.”

American Shutters’ Security Shutters were installed to enclose the outdoor entertainment patio, enhancing security and protecting from weather elements while complementing the style of this beautifully designed and decorated modern home.

American Shutters, with its pioneering spirit and unwavering commitment to quality, style and innovation, is leading the way with these precision-engineered shutters that look as elegant as their classic wooden shutters but have the added benefit of providing top-quality security.
