Every time you leave the house, your home has a chance of falling victim to burglars, vandals, and other bad guys who want to do you — and your property — harm. So, how do you protect your home, without having to deal with all of the expense and hassles that come along with electronic security systems?
With roller shutters!
Typically made out of aluminum or galvanized steel, roller shutters do exactly what their name implies — they roll down to cover your windows and doors. Each shutter is custom-cut to fit your precise window or door opening, and once they’re installed, getting your shutters to go up and down is as easy as pushing a button. In fact, you can have your motorised roller shutters installed on the same radio frequency, so that a single button puts ALL of them up or down at once. That way, all you have to do is push one button when you leave the house. Certainly makes protecting your home easy, doesn’t it?!
Once they come down, roller shutters automatically lock in place. (You can even get special bolts installed with your roller shutters, in addition to the standard automatic lock that comes with them, for some added security.) And, because they’re made out of such strong metal, roller shutters won’t be able to fall victim to baseball bats, crow bars, or any other tool that a burglar might be carrying around with him! In fact, roller shutters are practically impossible for bad guys to penetrate — no matter how sophisticated their law-breaking skills might be.
Most bad guys will pick another home to break into when they see roller shutters. After all, why go to all of the trouble of trying to break through roller shutters (not to mention all of the noise it would create in the process!), when you can just head to another house?!
As an added benefit, roller shutters remove all of the temptation from your home. Think about it — if you leave your glass windows and doors as-is when you’re not around, anyone can wander up and take a look at what you’ve got inside. By spending a minute or so checking out your state-of-the-art TVs, your shiny new appliances, and your other luxury items, a thief can decide that breaking into your home is a risk he’s willing to take.
But that can’t happen when you’ve got roller shutters!
Because these external shutters completely cover your glass windows and doors, bad guys won’t be able to check out the “merchandise” that’s sitting inside your home. Even if they COULD break through your roller shutters and force their way into your home, it’s not worth the effort. After all, your home could be full of stuff they don’t want!
Best of all, these external shutters can be rolled up — completely out of sight — whenever you’re home. That way, your house can have the protection it needs, without making you feel like you’re living in a fortress!
