I understand that It is important that we keep our homes secure, but until recently our only option was ugly security screens and security bars. You are hard pressed finding any security screen or security bar that doesn't either resemble a jail or looks like a mass of intertwined metal. Security screens ruin the street appeal of so many homes.
UGLY SECURITY SCREENS AND BARS
My suggestion is to replace them with security standard aluminum shutter. By adding aluminum shutters to your windows and patio, you not only increase the security of your home, but you add to it. Nothing looks more stunning then home finished in beautiful plantation style shutters. For me, they really finish the home.
ELEGANT ALUMINUM SHUTTERS FOR SECURITY
Weatherwell Elite is an American made aluminum shutter that has been designed to withstand any kind of burglar penetration. The Weatherwell Elite shutter is the strongest aluminum shutter on the market with lockable blades, and key operated top and bottom shoot bolts.
Interesting thought: I have also seen people use roller shutters as security, particularly on their vacation home, and when they are down I KNOW they are away. The problem is the burglars do too!
