The Element Security Shutter’s Strengths

◊ Superior Wind Load

◊ Thermal Insulation

◊ Excellent Noise Barrier

Each shutter has a strong core made from super hard resin, covered with a 37mm aluminum slat. The HTF secure guide rail covers with a 40mm slat channel - This creates a cover for the portion that you secure and lock and it’s virtually tamper resistant. Crowbars or any type of picking tool stands no chance against this technology.  The secure end slats come in two sizes: 45 and 52mm. The 52mm slats can be modified to add keyed locks for extra protection and peace of mind. Anti-push up mounts keep them from being pushed and dislodged. All models have a high-end durable motor. Peace of mind is further enhanced when the motor is reliable for the long-term.

Element Shutters offer three types of Shutter:

Is maintaining and cleaning my rolling shutters easy?

Yes, here’s how to do it. Clear the guides first by making sure nothing is blocking them so that they can close smoothly and completely. Once down, you can hose the surface and wipe them safely from top to bottom (NOT side to side). Use cleaners that are not abrasive detergents.

The maintenance is just as easy. Make sure that your shutters are fully up or fully down. Try never to leave them in the half-way position. This may cause them to shake in high winds and could damage the mechanism.

Our security shutters are operated from either inside or outside the home.

Do roller shutters shield against insects?

Yes. Whether you have them for your home or business, you’ll want to keep your home and your food free from flies and mosquitoes.

 

Does the weather eventually fade the colour or warp the material?

No. Aluminum is tough and fade resistant, making it better than PVC.
