Everything about a home should be for the supreme well-being of the people who live there. With that said, windows and doors can play a very important role in your welfare and sense of safety but can also help to improve the look and feel of your home. Most Australians now opt for shutters for their windows and doors for various important reasons.
Installing shutters for your home may seem like a long, daunting process, with a number of factors to consider. If you are looking for your very own window or door shutters, The Modern Group has you covered. Here are 3 things that you need to know about Modern shutters:
- Roller shutters offer maximum security and protection
Roller shutters are mounted above a window or door, and have the ability to roll up or down. Above is a headbox which tucks in the slats of the shutter when it is not required, which can then be rolled down for protection or cover when needed. This convenient design allows homeowners to have maximum security without blocking the natural aesthetic of the windows and doors all the time.
We offer three types of roller shutter operating systems. Manual roller shutters require some minimal physical labour. The manual winder handle can be controlled to raise or lower the shutters according to your needs. Electric roller shutters, on the other hand, provide convenience and are available in a range of remote control options. Better yet, Modern’s battery-operated roller shutters give you full control of your window shutters at the simple touch of a button for the ultimate ease and comfort.
- Plantation shutters offer both practicality and functionality
Plantation shutters are composed of slats that can be tilted according to your needs – whether you need to let sunlight in or cover your windows from the eyes of passersby. Not only does this style of shutter make your privacy a priority, but plantation shutters also add to the beauty of the house. As if that’s not enough, plantation shutters can provide insulation through winter and summer months.
Ideal for standard windows, fixed plantations offer cost-effective light and privacy control with adjustable blades, while sliding plantations allow for a panel to slide over a fixed panel on the other side of your door or window. Bi-fold plantations allow panels to fold back on themselves for less obstruction of the beautiful outdoors. One of the most popular types of plantation shutters are hinged plantations, which have panels that can be fully opened with the help of the hinges on the sides.
- Louvre shutters make the outdoors appealing and secure
Our louvre shutters are made of exquisite aluminium material, providing shade, protection from the elements, and privacy from those nosey neighbours. They can be used on alfresco areas, balcony enclosures and privacy screens.
Just like with our indoor plantation shutters, you can also opt for fixed panel louvres, bi-fold louvres, sliding louvres or hinged louvres. Additionally, there are also stacking louvres, almost like the sliding model, but with an H-section at the end of the louvre track to provide the option of completely opening and stacking the louvres.
