Security matters, but don’t compromise on style.

There are many effective security barriers on the market, but only a few that look as good as they work. Opposed to rugged burglar bars and security gates, aluminium Security Shutters have a sophistication and refined style.

Strength and security are the hallmarks of our built-to-last security shutters. Suitable for both doors and windows, these custom-made aluminium louvred shutters are built for security and boast some impressive patented built-in strengthening and safety features.

  • The attention to detail is stand-alone in the market; from the tamper proof anti-corrosion aluminium hinges, to the top and bottom locking rod, from the strip-proof Italian locks to the shutter panels that lock into place.
  • Hidden in the aluminium framework, the ‘Gear Tilt’ system is unique to AMERICAN shutters. This system nullifies the need for unsightly tilt rods allowing unobstructed views between the louvres.
  • The new system has undergone stringent tests and the results prove consistent, efficient, smooth and problem-free operation. Tests simulated daily opening and closing of the louvres over a ten-year period.
  • Locally manufactured from architectural grade aluminium, the shutters are suitable for interior as well as exterior use, perfect for South African conditions.

Material and Construction

Our durable intruder resistant Security Shutters are made from 100% recyclable powder-coated architectural grade aluminium, and is available in three shutter configurations; Hinged, Bi-fold and By-pass.

An extremely strong shutter panel assembly, tamper proof aluminium hinges, long-lasting stainless-steel fixatives (screws / bolts etc), strip proof Italian locks and a 10mm locking rod engaging simultaneously at the top and bottom ensures your safety.

Each interleafed louvre is secured on both sides to the internal framework of the shutter and can remain open once the shutter panel is locked in place using a key turn.
