Roller shutters for your living room FAQs

Are roller shutters good for a living room?

Roller shutters are a popular choice for a living room, and any room in your home. Roller shutters not only add a layer of security over sliding doors and windows but also provide insulation, reducing energy costs. Living room roller shutters also provide increased privacy and noise reduction.

Which rooms should have roller shutters?

Roller shutters are suited to any room of your home. Modern roller shutters are installed on the outside of sliding doors and windows and when retracted, they’re completely out of sight, not blocking your view. When you drop your roller shutters — we offer remote control or manual functionality — you can keep weather out, increase security, reduce noise and increase privacy.

How do roller shutters work?

Roller shutters are mounted above a door or window and can be rolled down to provide a shield of protection for the door or window as needed. Roller shutters retract upwards into a securely fitted top casing. When in the up position, they are hidden.

What are the benefits of roller shutters?

In the down position, you can enjoy complete light blockout, noise reduction, and increased year-round insulation for increased energy efficiency and reduced energy bills.

Modern roller shutters have layers of special insulated foam within each aluminium slat, designed to absorb heat in summer and trap in warm air during winter. Besides energy savings, homeowners Australia-wide also choose security roller shutters to deter break-ins and keep burglars out.
