Many of us today seem to take the security of our homes for granted. Not only do rollershutters provide a visual deterrent, the auto locking features in the pelmet box also eliminate windows being smashed or opened. Once in the locking position and fully closed, the curtain cannot be lifted to create entry for the would be thief very difficult. Security Screens over opening parts of windows no longer will protect your family. Thieves are more brazen than ever and will smash windows to gain access to your valuables.
The bottom security bar on the OzShut® rollershutter adds the fourth dimension to the strength required. This is a standard feature which does not cost extra as with some other companies.
Stop them at the window! No need for expensive monitoring contracts and security guard call out fees. Let’s be honest…who pays attention to alarms going off anyhow? Just putting warning stickers on windows will not stop them. The family dog is a pet and is no match to skilled thieves who know how to bypass your family canine.
Gates and fences can be scaled and inferior door and window locks make it easy for them to gain entry. They often provide the “shelter” to restrict their view to the public also.
