What are the benefits of roller shutters?
If you’re weighing up the benefits of installing roller shutters or don’t know if it’s worth replacing your old, rusting shutters, here are three reasons you should consider investing:
1. They’ll deter burglars: like it or not, commercial units and industrial premises are often targeted by burglars – unless you’ve clearly invested in quality roller shutters.
2. They’ll improve energy efficiency: how much heat is escaping out of the entrance to your premises? A well-fitted and insulated set of roller doors will reduce the chances of that happening – big time.
3. They look professional: a well maintained, quality set of roller shutters will really raise the professionalism and overall aesthetics of your premises.

What’s your top tip for buying roller shutters?
Make sure the shutter supplied is up to standards and CE marked. Electrical roller shutters should also have safety brakes and, if operated by remote control, additional safety features to reduce the risk of entrapment.
