Security with style

AMERICAN shutters’ Security Shutters® are a highly effective and strong external security product, and easy to operate without a tilt rod, thanks to our unique ‘Gear Tilt’ system hidden in the shutter framework.  The louvres are adjusted simply and smoothly by moving the louvres.

The louvres’ tight fit against the shutter framework and the interleafed shutter panels provide greater privacy, security and light block than any other security shutters on the market.

The locked bolt system secures the shutter panels in place, and the tamper-proof bottom and top tracks ensure that the shutters cannot be lifted out of place.
