Aluminium shutters are lightweight, easy to operate and multi-purpose – all good reasons to consider installing them over windows and doors to protect your home from a variety of nuisances.
Trellidor recently introduced ‘Trellidor Rollerstyle’ aluminium shutters to their range of security barriers and are delighted at the positive response from South African home owners, who are finding all sorts of uses for them. “We’re primarily known as manufacturers of security barriers, but our shutters have proven themselves useful in other ways too,” said Trellidor managing director Andrew Thomas.
One shutter, many uses
Trellidor Rollerstyle shutters can be used to close up an entire house or commercial building when it’s unoccupied; they function as both wall and security barrier for patios and shop fronts; they can act as room dividers when a large space needs to be divided up; and they close off an area within the home, such as an upstairs bedroom wing, as a safe haven if required.
Whole house security is easy with these shutters and is especially useful for people whose homes need to be closed up for any length of time. The shutters can be fitted to every external door and window. When they’re all closed, they present a formidable barrier to any would-be thief and protect the home from bad weather and costly items such as furniture from sun damage.
Some designs have perforated or punched slats that allow for limited air circulation and light penetration. This means that the shutters help keep the occupants safe at home while benefitting from a cool breeze at night.

“Our solid slatted shutter curtains provide a complete black-out, which is ideal for home theatres and the entrance to your safe area. They can also be used for climate control where this aspect is vital, such as wine cellars,” said Andrew.
Trellidor’s shutters have been used as exterior walls for patios, opening up the area when in use and protecting it from bad weather or theft at night. They’ve even been used to protect exotic fish tanks from the heat of the midday sun, where a timer is used to lower the shutters at a designated time each day.
Easy to operate
Unlike steel versions, aluminium shutters are quiet and easy to operate. Trellidor’s automated units are fitted with motors by Somfy, the recognised world-wide leaders in this technology, and can be remote controlled. It’s a wireless system with manual override in case of power failure, which is an essential feature for many parts of South Africa where electricity supply is unreliable.
When not in use, the shutters roll up out of sight into a neat shutter box, which can be concealed in the wall if installed in a new-build, but still accessible for maintenance. Retro fitted units will have an exposed but compact shutter box.
Trellidor franchises countrywide have seen an increased demand for Trellidor Rollerstyle shutters, especially in projects where conventional security barriers are unsuitable. The new range is guaranteed by Trellidor and manufactured to the same high standards expected of this well-respected brand. To see Trellidor’s whole range of security solutions, visit Trellidor.
