Highly effective protection for windows and doors
With Perth’s ever-increasing population, new housing developments, a tough economy and an ongoing drug epidemic, burglaries and home invasions are unfortunately a very real part of our everyday lives.
The security of your home and safety of your family should be a priority!
Statistically, the vast majority of thieves will break into your home through easily accessed doors or windows, so this is where you should tighten security. You could begin with the front windows of your home to deter burglars looking for an easy target or prioritize the bedrooms against the possibility of a night time home invasion.
OzShut Roller Shutters boast numerous features that easily make them the best form of window security on the market.

Improve the comfort level inside your home
Roller Shutters can be stopped at any level to give you complete control over the amount of light that enters through the window. They are capable of blocking out up to 100% of light when fully closed (depending on the type of fitting used for a particular home).
OzShut Roller Shutters also feature large perforation holes between the slats. These can be opened to allow for filtered light and ventilation while still providing protection from the sun. This is especially useful for evaporative air-conditioners which require an open window to be most effective. The perforation holes are designed to let in some light and fresh air but maintain complete privacy. Even at night, it is not possible to see through the Roller Shutter.
It is important to note that the Roller Shutter can not be locked automatically if the perforation holes are OPEN or partly ventilated.
Not only does the insulation inside each Roller Shutter slat prevent the transfer of heat, it also works to reduce the amount of outside noise heard from within the home. If you live on a busy road, are bothered by neighbourhood sounds or barking dogs, OzShut Roller Shutters can reduce the noise by up to 50%.
The diversity of Roller Shutters makes them popular for bedroom windows, whether for a shift worker that needs to sleep during the day, babies & young children that need to nap or those that get woken early by the bright morning sun. They are also useful in theatre or TV rooms to remove the sun’s glare and those where the direct sunlight damages or fades furniture and carpet.

Stay cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter
Perth has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and clear blue skies for 70% of the year. With extended periods of heat and sunshine, air conditioners and insulation are an essential for most Perth homes.
Did you know that the majority of heat transfer into or out of your home happens through the glass of your windows? Especially those that face directly into the morning or afternoon sun!
All OzShut Roller Shutters slats are injected with a high density Polyurethane, the same insulating material used in refrigerators & freezers. This allows the Roller Shutter to reduce the transfer of heat through your windows by up to 90%!! With less heat entering the home your air conditioner will not need to operate as long or as often, saving you 30-40% on the running costs.
Similarly during winter, Roller Shutters will prevent heat escaping from the home through your windows and improve the efficiency of your homes heating.
All of this also has added benefits to the environment with the reduction of your household’s carbon emissions from the use of the air conditioner and the burning of fuels/gasses.
