The new aluminium Portchester Range delivers safety and style in equal measures. It offers an additional layer of window protection if you want to enhance home security, but don’t wish to compromise on elegance.

Security Blinds in Chelmsford (Essex), London & Kent

While the Portchester range looks just like our normal elegant plantation shutters, there’s one clear difference. They also have a lock and key.

Manufactured in South Africa, where home security is a high priority, these robust shutters are designed with both protection and poise in mind.

It means you have an elegant alternative to installing heavy traditional security grilles, roller shutters or burglar bars. These options may be a clear visual deterrent, but they aren’t the ideal solution. They often block out the light and look severe and industrial.

They operate just like our other ranges and are available in most styles, including full height, bi-fold and bypass. There is a hidden tilt rod, so you the louvres can be operated by hand rather than by moving a rod up and down. This creates a sleek, modern design with elegant contours and clean lines.

When locked, the louvres still work as before but the panels can't be opened. So you can leave your windows open at night, for example, or protect a more vulnerable window or room in their property. While Portchester shutters may not be a visual deterrent to intruders (unlike their traditional counterparts), they do provide a stylish, yet robust additional layer of protection to homes.

Portchester shutters come in a range of styles, depending on the size of your window. Aluminium is very heavy so they are ideal for smaller windows as well as room dividers and conservatory doors. They are available in full height, bifold and bypass styles. Contact your local Lifestyle dealer for more details and take a look at our image gallery.

Portchester shutters are available with 89mm louvres in a choice of two colours; satin white and charcoal. They are a very close match to all our shutters and would not look out of place alongside our other ranges. The main discernible difference is the subtle addition of a lock. They have been aesthetically designed to closely match our non-security shutter ranges, creating a seamless interior design.

Yes, our Portchester shutter range can be installed both internally and externally. They are made from aluminium and are waterproof and rustproof. They can provide an additional layer of protection from the elements, if your property is particularly exposed, and can also be used as a security barrier for summer houses, outdoor offices etc.

You will need to speak to your insurer directly as all policies are different. Aluminium security shutters are sometimes classified as security barriers or gates. Our manufacturer is working towards being awarded a formal security classification for Portchester shutters.

All Lifestyle are made-to-measure, and you can book a home survey for an accurate quote from one of our dealers. Portchester shutters offer the same features as our ranges with their additional security properties and are therefore priced accordingly. Portchester shutters can only be ordered via selected Lifestyle stockists and we have exclusive UK distribution rights with our manufacturer.

Security shutters can only be opened with a key, so it is important that owners keep their keys in an easily accessible place, and all members of the household know where these are in case of fire or any other need to leave the property via a window that has security shutters. For any rooms where security shutters are fitted, an alternative escape route is highly advisable. Aluminium is generally considered to be fire resistant.
