In Case of Emergency: Lock Up and Go!

We understand that there are more important things than money and material possessions, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't make an effort to safeguard what you've got. Even in the city, our legendary weather can sometimes seem like it’s out to get us! That’s why we’ve made it our business to help you get the best weather protection available with roller shutters, even in those extreme cases where the only option left is to lock up and go. Here are 3 ways roller shutters help you keep your home safe:


Protect your possessions from fire damage


Bushfires can really put a stop to your summer fun, as if the heat wasn’t enough already. Our products are CSIRO approved and are so effective against radiant heat, that they’re virtually known as “bushfire shutters” in this neck of the woods. In the unhappy event that you’re left leaving your home in a hurry, rolling down your roller shutters goes a long way to protect your home (and the valuables inside) from internal fire damage. Even in natural disasters, you’d be left assured that you’ve done your best to protect your most valuable asset.  

Provide shelter from the storms


Nothing causes more havoc than a coastal storm. Installing roller shutters is one of the best ways to protect your windows from shattering in the winds (and occasional hail). Not only do you have the option of cocooning yourself inside to carry on with your business as usual, but in the event of an evacuation order, you’ll know your home is safe from the danger of shattered windows and the inconvenience of flooding that comes with it!


Secure your heirlooms from sun damage


It can take lifetimes to gather the valuables that take the edge out of living. That’s why we’d recommend roller shutters as a worthwhile investment for those times you may not be at home. With roller shutters installed on your windows, you can rest assured you’re protecting the value of your assets and heirlooms, securing them from cumulative sun damage. This might sound like the softest form of weather protection, but we all know how our summer sun can fade even the hardiest of denim (and not in the trendy way). Taking a little daily care to keep the shutters down while you’re out goes a long way to extending the lifespan of those things that make your house feel like home.     


We know it’s never easy to consider worst-case scenarios, but a little planning always goes a long way. When you’re ready to reach out, know that we’ll be here. As a family-run business, we’ve had our fair share of experiences with salespeople who seem like they’ve got more than a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock. That’s why we promise never to knock down your door or unnecessarily harp on about Doomsday. In the meantime, know that our door is always open — we’re always happy to answer any questions or arrange a visit.
