Roller Shutters Comparison

Aluminum Window Shutters

The most popular roller shades are those made of aluminium for windows.It is the preferred material for the majority of domestic and commercial uses.

Robbers won't have an easy time breaking into your home because aluminium is sturdy and long-lasting. Due to its lesser weight than steel, the roller shutter is easy to operate.

Significantly, aluminium is rust-resistant. It also maintains its shape even after being exposed to moisture. Another feature that sets aluminium apart from its competitors is its durability. Roller shutters made of aluminium can last up to 30 years with regular maintenance.

One of the most aesthetic appeal materials is aluminium. Because of its silvery appearance, it doesn't need to be painted to be lovely. This makes it suitable for all kinds of buildings

The cost of aluminium shutters is its lone disadvantage. It costs hundreds of dollars more than it would to purchase another type of shutter. However, they more than make up for it with the benefits listed above.

Polycarbonate Window Shutters

Polycarbonate shutters are an option if you tend to avoid aluminium or metallic shutters. Roller shutters made of polycarbonate are created using a thermoplastic composite. They are therefore highly impact resistant despite being made of plastic.

Transparency, which adds to their aesthetic appeal, is the main benefit of polycarbonate shutters. Additionally, these shutters provide customers a glimpse of what's on the shelves for store owners, luring them inside to make purchases 

Shutters that are transparent offer various advantages in household situations. They first permit light penetration, which gives the impression of space.

A coloured shutter can throw off your colour scheme and force you to make alterations, but they fit in well with existing decor.

Polycarbonate shutters are also strong. They are resistant to high-impact forces and can shield your home from intruders and bad weather.

The negative of polycarbonate shutters is that they can make your home a target because of their transparency.

For instance, thieves who are mingling with potential customers are more inclined to break into your store since they can see your inventory. Likewise, if your property has translucent polycarbonate shutters, criminals are more inclined to break in.

Additionally, scratches and scuff marks are very likely to occur on polycarbonate while you roll the shutters up and down. The light scuff marks on the top panels may be visible immediately after first use. The length of the scuff marks visibility depends upon the width of shutters.

The wider the shutter, the more it is prone to sag in the middle, hence placing scuff marks more visible in the middle of shutter. This may detract from their attractiveness, especially if it is placed in a busy area.

Plantation Window Shutters

Plantation shutters are a good approach to change the look and feel of your building.

These shutters are excellent at keeping buildings aired and insulated despite having a straightforward structural design.

Compared to louvred shutters, plantation shutters feature wider intervals between the slats. They are ideal for large windows and doors thanks to their design, which also makes it simple to control light infiltration through the flaps.

Plantation shutters also offer a number of aesthetic and useful advantages. Spaces become lighter and more airy thanks to the horizontal slats' simple lines.

In addition to offering some seclusion, these shutters are simple to maintain. Additionally, you can alter them to include properties like resistance to fire, warping, and water.

Plantation shutters won't satisfy your needs if you want absolute privacy. Even if the louvres are closed, you won't be completely hidden from view.p>

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.
