Roll Shutters

The Roll Shutter offers security, weather protection, energy conservation and noise control in one product. European style Roll-Up shutters (a.k.a. rolladen / rollladen) have been adopted and modified for the Mid-Atlantic coastal regions by using only stainless steel, aluminum, galvanized steel or plastic components to eliminate oxidation and ensure long, trouble free life.

Security

When properly closed, roll-up shutters make it nearly impossible for burglars to gain entry. These Shutters are a proven burglary deterrent,as they form a physical barrier between the would-be vandal and the valuables within the property.

Hurricane Protection

Hurricane roll shutters come in many styles and colors. The product has been tested to withstand 140mph hurricane force windloads and also protect the opening from wind driven airborne debris.

Operator Options

Motor operated shutters come with a Somfy tubular motor that is engineered to fit inside the shutter axle. All somfy motors come with a full five (5) year warranty. Manual Override options are also available,so that the shutter can be operated even in emergencies or a power outage. Rolling Shutters can also be installed with special electronics, such as remote control,wind, sun or rain sensors, interior / exterior key switches and can interface smart home and home automation systems.

Energy Savings & More

Rolling shutters are designed to protect your building, but what about the other benefits that might not seem as obvious? When you investigate the other possibilities of how Roll Shutters can benefit you, the reasons will stop to make you ask, "Why haven’t I purchased shutters yet?"


Who Uses Rolling Shutters?

Anyone with openings on their building, of course! Any door or window can benefit from the addition of a rolling shutter. Regardless if you are a homeowner or a business, Rollac shutters are a smart choice.

What Can They Do?

Reduce the amount to energy gain / loss transmitted through a building.

All non insulated spaces in a building are targets for energy transfer. Windows conduct the greatest amount of energy transfer. During the warmer months of the year the sun shines into windows, heating rooms in the house throughout the day. As the heat enters the room, air conditioners must operate at higher rates to compensate for the adjusted temperature. During peak sunshine hours, the amount of energy transmitted into a room can become unbearable. Cooler weather draws heat out and cold weather in, causing higher heating bills due to constantly fluctuating temperatures.

You can lower energy bills throughout the year by improving the insulation to key areas where energy is transmitted. Rolling shutters physically block outside elements and prevent energy from escaping on the inside. 

Comfort & Privacy

The world around us continues to produce more and more sensory pollution- that is anything that can cause distraction or irritation. Imagine the peacefulness of your interior if you could block all of that out…Outside elements produce large amounts of distraction in many different ways. Total privacy can only be achieved by completely blocking all outside sources of disturbance. The noise of busy streets, construction, excessively loud neighbors can more than disrupt your indoor activities. Imagine how yoga, reading, homework, a quiet dinner, exercise, or even listening to music could be enhanced from a serene atmosphere. Rolling shutters also create a physically solid barrier between you and outside elements, adding a privacy level unattainable by blinds, curtains or other window coverings. No more running for the phone in your towel, worrying if you’ll be the talk of your neighborhood.

Light Reduction

Rolling shutters allow total light control in a room. Switching between a fully lit room to complete darkness, or anywhere in between is done with just the touch of a button. This allows you to take a nap even during broad daylight. Convert your living room into a theater style setting and grab a bowl of popcorn. Movies take on a whole new level of excitement when all other annoying elements are eliminated. Anything is possible with Roll Shutters.

Noise Reduction

Noise pollution is another common element that continues to increase in our ever growing environment.

UV Protection

UV rays from the sun contribute to fading of furniture over time. Using rolling shutters will prevent the sun from fading your favorite couch for many years to come.
