Benefits of Roller Shutters

Home Security

The biggest benefit of Window Roller Shutters is that they provide your home with excellent security. This is because they are very closely fitted to the door or window and cannot be pulled away without a great deal of effort. As well as being an excellent physical deterrent, they are also a brilliant visual deterrent as would be intruders see the shutters and decide that it is not worth the effort of trying to gain entry to your home, going elsewhere instead.

Oz Roller Shutters provide an excellent physical barrier against entry that deters intruders and protects your windows and doors against breakage. There are no outside locks that can be picked or tampered with. Oz roller shutters use guide rails with flange and the screws are installed on the flange part of guide rails for extra security. Once the roller shutter is down, no one can access these screws. Oz roller shutters use extra wide and extra thick guide rails for roller shutters which provide added security to your window roller shutters.

Energy Savings

Most people cover their windows from the inside with blinds, curtains, etc. However, this only partially shades the house. The sunlight hits the windows and heats them up, it then enters the room and heats up the shading devices, the windows and the space between them. These elements act like a heater and are constantly heating the home when exposed to the sun. Window roller shutters are the ultimate solution to this problem. Roller Shutters stop the heat energy before it even has a chance to reach your windows. Roller Shutters are made from high-quality aluminium and are injected with polyurethane which offer a thick wall of insulation and can keep out much of the outside heat. The Roller Shutters also create an air space between the shutters and the windows, creating an additional energy barrier.

Exterior roller shutters can reduce the temperature of your window glass by over 4°C!. This additional insulating capacity can significantly reduce your cooling costs, which is particularly important for the hot and dry conditions of Australia.

The window roller shutters are also very effective at keeping your home warm in the winter months. Roller Shutters can save you up to 40% on your energy bill and can eventually pay for themselves in energy savings, in addition to the environmental benefits of reduced energy consumption.

Fire Protection

The roller shutters are used to stop fire and smoke from spreading to save property and, more importantly, protect lives. They have become the clear and reliable choice for building owners and designers who demand the highest level of life safety and fire protection available with the lowest cost of ownership in a modern, easily integrated package. Ozroll’s Sentry Fireshield is ideal for residential or commercial use, particularly in areas prone to fire hazards, making it the ideal option for BAL 40 rated Fire Shutters. Manufactured to the highest standards with state of the art equipment, the Sentry Fireshield profile is available in a 40mm curved profile. The Sentry Fireshield has superior strength offering increased security and performance. The overall profile appearance is clean and stylish with only a slight “V” groove line on the convex side. Available in several long lasting and fade resistant Interpon coatings or a natural anodised finish, the Sentry Fireshield Profile can also be powder coated in a colour of your choice. It is common knowledge that hot or burning embers entering the home during a bushfire is a major factor in the ignition of the building itself. Ozroll’s Sentry Fireshield Roller Shutters have been credited with saving homes from burning to the ground when other surrounding properties were not so fortunate.

The Sentry Fireshield BAL 40 Fire Shutters have been extensively tested by the CSIRO under severe bushfire simulated conditions and proved to be able to withstand a maximum radiant heat exposure of 40kw/sqm after 60 minutes. As no ignition or flaming was observed throughout the testing the Sentry Shutter has received a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 40.

Climate Control

Roller Shutters act as a barrier between the window glass and sunlight. During Summer, the window rolling shutters are kept down to keep the heat out. The devices used to cool the house are not required to be operated as much, there by saving on electricity costs and maintaining the required temperature easily and quickly. Roller shutters eliminate the annoying glare of bright sunlight and protect the interior and contents of your home by blocking out damaging UV (ultraviolet) rays. Roller shutters can actually stop heat by up to 90 percent and stop up to 70 percent of cold.

Privacy & Light Control

Do you work night shift? Want to sleep during the day and want your room completely dark? Want to enjoy movies in your home theater in darkness? We have the solution for you. Oz Roller shutters eliminate the annoying glare of bright sunlight and protect the interior and contents of your home by blocking out damaging UV (ultraviolet) rays. The roller shutters can be adjusted to any light and ventilation level desired. When closed, the shutter panels each reveal a row of ventilation holes that allow some light and air to pass through. The shutters also can be locked down in the completely closed position, in which the shutter blocks more than 99.5% of the light, making your room as dark as you desire. Your home is your sanctuary and a place for privacy in which you can relax and unwind. Oz Roller shutters will provide you with all the privacy you need.

Noise Reduction

We are all aware of the security benefits that come with installing a roller shutter system in your Melbourne home, now let's talk about the noise cancelling benefits they provide. There’s nothing quite like coming home to a quiet and peaceful house. It gives you the ability to separate yourself from the noise and commotion of the outside world. Less clutter, less noise, more serenity, and more peace. Oz Roller Shutters offer a range of noise effective roller shutter solutions for your home, installed by our window roller shutter experts. It has been proven through exhaustive testing that a correctly installed roller shutter can reduce the outside noise entering in your home by up to 80 percent. The insulating qualities of our rolling shutters can reduce the ambient noise level by up to 10dB or more, especially at higher frequencies. Oz Roller Shutters can typically be expected to reduce the level of exterior noise by 2db to 15 db. Noises that were a nuisance before will now be barely noticeable.

Roller Shutters vs Canvas Blinds

Roller shutters are installed flat on the wall or in-reveal and all the roller shutters can be operated from inside the house manually or via a remote control. Canvas blinds are installed on the window but have to be operated from outside. It is very uncomfortable and insecure going outside the house to put Canvas blinds up or down when it is windy, rainy or dark at night. They sit far away from the wall when in down position. Canvas blinds do not provide any security from the intruders. Window Roller shutters are far better choice with the customers as they provide added benefits of security, light control, privacy, internal operation, heat reduction, energy savings and noise insulation.Benefits of roller shutters can be more than you realise.

Sam and the team were accomodating to our needs. We were able to automate an old manually operated shutter which gave it longevity and avoided the need to change the entire unit. We also installed several new shutters and the units look and operate as expected. The team is professional and price transparently, I would recommend them

I had a great experience with Ozroll shutters! Sam arrived on time to provide me a quote for all of my windows and a security door with pretty good competitive rate. Installation was also done on time in a single day with great care! Both Sam and Nav were professional, polite and very pleasant to deal with them. Installation was brilliant and now we feel our home is better insulated from both cold and heat. I would definitely recommend Ozroll shutters without second thought!

The best business I have dealt with. Came to measure on the same day and they were able to make the shutters very quickly. Excellent work with installing and explaining care of them.They definitely keep the pride in their work as from the first point of call to the end of the install, they were fantastic. Really happy with the shutters and the quality of them are excellent. And they do not charge more than other businesses is the best thing. I checked other companies earlier and none of them could beat these prices.I will definitely use them again and also recommend them 100% with quality work and products.

We used Oz Roller Shutters in December 2020 to install 14 shutters. It was one of the best decisions we made with regard to our home. Having our first level balcony facing the west where the suns sets we suffered for a couple of years from rain and heat hitting our glass windows and glass sliding doors. Even though we had refrigerated cooling it was still very warm in the house because of the heat from the sun. When it would rain it would be terrible. Everything on the balcony would be soaked and the floor would be wet and slippery. None of the above happens now. Our house stays cool in summer and warmer in winter without using the central heating as much.With electricity and gas going through the roof its been a great investment in hindsightWe also had them installed on the ground level which makes us feel very safe. Pretty difficult for an intruder to come in when these heavy duty roller shutters are down. We cannot praise Sam Navi and their crew enough. They are so polite and willing to go that bit extra to make you happy. The reason I am writing this review so long after install is because we had another shutter installed recently and completely forgot to write a review after the initial install. We believe they look great but that's our opinion. They also have this great tool on their website where you are able to calculate how much it will cost you. I called other companies but found Oz Roller Shutters were much more competitive and consultative. Highly recommended.We chose black surroundings because our window frames are black but you can choose whatever you like.You won't be disappointed.
