“Look at those beautiful, neat shutters and how much protection they give that house”: that is the kind of observation that’s heard increasingly on the streets of this city. And they are talking about shutters: modern roller shutters that keep out the heat and the light, not to mention noise, with the equally important advantage of improving security.
Yes, the old image of the resolutely practical roller shutter, primarily seen in its protective role on retail and industrial premises (perfect for our commercial roller shutters in Perth), is being transformed because in Perth modern roller shutters have a new, multi-faceted role that includes heat, light and sound control as well as being the best, simplest security you can give to potentially vulnerable premises.
The modern roller shutter is a sleek, attractive, unobtrusive creation. It is not just providing practical benefits, either; it is bringing down electricity usage, which is good for the environment and for the household budget. If there were an award for Best Adaptation of An Old Idea, the modern roller shutter would win it hands down.
