Rolling shutters provide insulation, security, and storm protection without greatly affecting the visual aspect of your home.
Rolling Shutters can blend in with your building’s architecture and become invisible. If you are building a new home, these shutters can be incorporated into the structure, so they will be visible only when lowered.
Rolling Shutters can cover a variety of openings: Standard windows and doors, patio enclosures, balconies, and store front windows or doors. They are also available in motorized and non-motorized options that can retract out of the way with a push of a button or a crank.
Rolling shutters also provide insulation between the shutter and window and will keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by up to 20 degrees.
The Rolling/Roll Down Shutter has slats made from extruded aluminum that forms a curtain, which rolls up into an enclosed box. On either side of the window is a permanently mounted track system that holds these slats in place, while they are being raised or lowered. The better quality systems use what is called an end retention system. This end retention system locks the end of the slats in the track and does a better job of preventing the slated from being sucked out during a hurricane.
Rolling shutters can be manual or motorized and operated from a switch or remote control, manual overrides are also available on motorized shutters. Key switches and digital key pads are available. The new Somfy TaHoma system is now available and will allow you to operate your rolling shutters from your computer or smartphone from anywhere in the world.
