Quality Parts and Services
All parts and services will be high-quality and durable. If you DIY your

How Roller Shutters Prevent Break-Ins in Business Establishments
All businesses are at risk of break-ins today if
they do not take the right precautions. Along with various types of security
systems and measures, these establishments need to protect their windows
securely to ensure that intruders cannot enter through them. Roller shutters
are the ideal window treatment to accomplish this goal. In order for you to
fully understand this statement, we offer you how they deter break-ins at your
company in the following information.
Roller Shutters Completely Block the
View Into Your Company
When you close the roller shutters, they totally block the interior area of
your building from anyone who is passing by it. No one can see what is going on
inside of it or any of your furnishings and belongings. By preventing any
potential intruders from seeing in your building off hours or even during
business hours if you so choose, you keep them from being able to formulate a
successful break-in plan without standing out to all who are in the area. As a
result, they will move on to other businesses to perpetuate their illegal
deeds. Intruders like to choose simple-to-access places that also are easy to
scope out rather than ones that make both of these as difficult as possible.
Roller Shutters Prevent Intruders from
Breaking the Windowpanes to Enter Into Your Establishment
Another way that these shutters prevent break-ins is by making it impossible
for intruders to smash your windows to gain entry. In comparison, unprotected
windows are quite easy to crack, break or smash. This is especially beneficial
if you own a retail business with large display windows at the front of your
Roller Shutters are Extremely Difficult
Intruders cannot remove the roller shutters or even bend them without making a
lot of noise that will bring attention to the fact that they are trying to gain
unlawful access to your building. Combine this with the above reasons, and it
is easy to understand why we recommend these shutters as an extra security
measure against break-ins.

bolster your security efforts to prevent break-ins at your business, come to

Security Screens for Both Hinged and Sliding Doors: Available at Rollertec Melbourne
If you are like most homeowners, being safe in your
home is a top priority. Security screens are an ideal addition to your other
security measures to increase the safety level of your home substantially. They
fit on hinged and sliding doors and allow you the ability to open your inner
doors while keeping the screens locked. Also, when both the screens and the
inner doors are locked, it makes it more difficult for intruders to break into
your home. We will further explore the advantages of installing these screens
and where to purchase them in the following.
Benefits of Security Screens
While additional security is the main benefit of installing these screens on
your sliding or hinged doors, you will find numerous other ones below:
• Maintains your privacy even when you open the inner door since people cannot
see through the screen clear enough to know what is going on in your home.
• Adds an attractive enhancement to any of your doors. Even though security
screens serve an important purpose, it does not mean that they need to be
utilitarian in appearance. In fact, some versions are so eye-catching that they
increase the curb appeal of your home.
• Installing security screens on your doors allow you to ventilate your house
with fresh air during pleasant weather without the insects invading your house.
• Enjoy natural light to its fullest when you add these screens to your doors
without risking the safety of you and your family. Natural light also brings
passive heating with it, so this benefit can help to reduce your energy
consumption in a small way during the cooler months of the year.
• May increase the overall value of your home when you decide to sell it.
Prospective buyers will appreciate this extra security feature being on the
house already to where they do not need to add it after they move into it.
• Security screens are from durable aluminium or stainless steel and come in a
wide assortment of colours. You can install them on any style of hinged doors,
including French ones and of course, sliding doors.

Signs That Indicate Your Roller Shutters Need Repair
Roller shutters add extra ambiance, fire
protection, privacy and security to homes and buildings. They also are built to
be highly durable for years of wear. With this be said, there are still those
times when repairs are necessary to keep them operating smoothly and
dependably. To help you know when to call the professionals, we share the
following signs that indicate your shutters of a roller design require repair.
Visible Damage to the Roller Shutters
Bent slats or other types of visible damage are obvious signs that you need to
hire professionals to perform repairs to your shutters. Damage can occur from
normal daily wear, mistreatment or intruders trying to force their way into
Roller Shutters Quit Operating Properly
Whether you have a manual or an electric version of the shutters, your shutters
should work easily and without issue. If they start opening or closing with
difficulty, have them repaired before the problem becomes more severe.
Operating shutters day after day when they are in this condition will lead to
replacement rather than inexpensive repairs.
The Motor Starts Making Strange Noises
With electric roller shutters, the motor should work quietly. When you hear
unusual sounds coming from it, it needs the proper attention and repairs to
return it to its ideal operating condition. Grinding, screeching or clicking
are examples of these unwanted noises.
Frayed or Broken Cords
Manual shutters of the roller design are dependent upon cords to open and
close. When the cords become frayed or damaged in some other fashion, it is a
sign that the shutters require immediate repairs.
Another sign that your shutters need repair is water seeping in from outside.
During proper operation, the shutters seal the windows and doors securely
enough to prevent such leaks from occurring. Also, if water can gain access
into your structure so can fire and pests.
Your Roller Shutters Lose Their
Misalignment of your shutter slats will cause the roller shutters not to close
completely. This will lead to a lack of privacy, security and all the other
benefits connected with these shutters.

issues in these include shaking during shutter operation and the tracks coming
completely off the wall.

repair, consult with Rollertec. We supply and install domestic and commercial

the cost of electrical power on the rise, property owners of both commercial

What Are Roller Shutters?

window or door treatments, roller shutters install on the exterior side of the
windows and doors. They are electronically controlled with wireless controls
available upon request.
Closed Roller Shutters Totally Block
When you close the roller shutters, they block all sunlight from coming into

blocking it from entering into your structure.

Advantages of Roller Shutters with Auto-Lift Smoke Sensors
Roller shutters are a great addition to any home’s or
building’s security measures because they are strong and durable. They
safeguard your property as well as your privacy in the closed position. With
the right add-on, they also are effective smoke detectors to forewarn you about

sensors close automatically when they first detect the presence of smoke in
order to secure your structure. Below, are the advantages of installing these
sensors along with your roller shutters.

Resolving Privacy Issues in Domestic Windows: Install Roller Shutters
Since neighbourhoods are busy places with pedestrians
and drivers going by the houses daily, residents have a major concern about
their privacy. They install wood fences to block the view into their backyards,
some use fences and gates in their front yards and they hang drapes at their
windows. It is the latter action that often falls short of offering sufficient
blockage to prevent people from looking through the windows to see what is
going on in the interior of the house. Many times, the material of the drapes
still allows people to see at least shadows if not more. A much better way to
go about resolving privacy issues with window treatments in domestic settings
is to install roller shutters. If you are suffering privacy issues in your
home, read on to learn more about these shutters.
Roller Shutters Block 100-percent of the
View from Onlookers
When you close roller shutters, onlookers cannot see anything that is going on
in the house, including shadows of movement. Also, you can adjust them at
different levels when they are open to provide semi-privacy or no privacy at
all if you so wish.
Roller Shutters Prevent Easy Access to
Vandals and Burglars
Another way that these shutters protect your privacy is by making it extremely
difficult for vandals and burglars to gain entrance into your house. In fact,
they will need to make so much of a commotion that they will alert everyone to
their presence, which increases their risk of being arrested by law enforcement

How Roller Shutters Can Protect a Business
sufficient security for a business today is a bit mind-boggling with all of the
options that are available. There are different types of security systems with
various features and pieces of equipment, but one method is overlooked many
times, and this is the installation of roller shutters. It is this latter
method that we want to discuss in this information. We provide the following
ways that these shutters can protect your business.
Roller shutters are almost impossible for criminals to break the windows to
access the interior of businesses. To do so, they would have to make sufficient
noise to attract attention to their unsavoury deeds, which increases their
chance of becoming caught by law enforcement. Instead of taking this risk, they
will go elsewhere to commit their crimes.
Safeguards Your Profits
Dealing with stolen merchandise and acts of vandalism can cost you part of your
profits. Since these shutters prevent burglary and other mischievous deeds,
they protect your profitability.
You choose when people can look into your business from the street when you
install roller shutters. Certain businesses may keep their shutters closed
whether they are open or not while others close them at the end of each
business day. In the closed position, people cannot even see the shadows of
people inside the building.
Protection from Weather and Fire
Installing roller shutters also protect your business from severe storms and
other natural occurrences that can damage your building. Also, they make your
building fire-resistant. This is especially important when you are located
within a fire-prone area.
Combinable with Other Security Measures
If you feel that you still need additional measures for security after
installing roller shutters, you need to understand that they are compatible
with all security systems. They will operate without issue with any other
security steps that you desire to take to safeguard your company.
Other Reasons to Install Roller Shutters
on a Commercial Building
• Roller shutters are attractive window treatments and complement any business
décor on both the interior and exterior of the building.
• Installing these shutters may increase your property value when you own your
building. When you decide to sell your property in the future, potential buyers
will be delighted in the fact that they do not need to add these shutters after
they take ownership.
• The use of roller shutters for security may help lower property insurance.
