A Peace of Mind Solution

No more unsightly burglar bars, industrial-looking expandable gates and security products, our Security Shutters combine strength, security and flexibility with style, and are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. With this custom-made security solution on your doors and windows, you will no longer need to compromise the aesthetic beauty of your residential or commercial property to beef up your security and protect your family.

Security with style

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