It depends on the type of installation. If hinged within a frame the shutters will offer virtually full block-out. If operating on a track system there will be a slight glow along the top where the shutters meet the track and along the bottom where the shutters meet the floor channel. An added feature of our shutters is our rabbet (half lap) stile that offers excellent privacy and blocks out light between the hinged panels.
Yes, one can opt to have bolts fitted on a bi-folding system or sash locks to a hinging system. Our aluminium Security Shutters come with various bolt and key locks for maximum security.
No, we use premium timber which is hand selected and dried using a specialised Prescription Wood Conditioning technique. This technique emulates the environmental conditions of the location where the shutters will be installed which reduces pre installation shrinking and swelling. Our shutters have reinforced engineered stiles with multiple layers of wood bonded together to achieve maximum stability in the core of the stile and ensure a robust and durable shutter. Our louvers are manufactured from quarter sawn wood to ensure stability against twisting and warping.
Our warranty on our shutters is between 3 to 5 years depending on the range selected, please request our warranty schedule for the full details.
