The new Portchester range of aluminium shutters delivers security and style in equal measures. It offers an additional layer of physical security to customers living and working in high risk areas, efficiently protecting against vandalism and forced entry of domestic buildings, company offices or even a retail shop. Regardless the type of premises, if you're looking for increased security levels but don’t wish to compromise on elegance, Portchester window security shutters are a smart purchase!

Portchester security shutters essex

Metal window shutters in Chelmsford (Essex), London & Kent

While the Portchester range looks just like our normal range of elegant plantation window shutters, there’s one clear difference with these security shutters; They are supplied and installed with a lock and key mechanism.

Manufactured in South Africa, a location where domestic security is a high priority, these solid metal window shutters are designed with both protection and poise in mind.

It means you have an aesthetically pleasing alternative to having heavy traditional security grilles, roller shutters or security bars installed. These options may be a clear visual deterrent, and whilst they mostly have commercial applications and can secure business premises well, they aren’t and ideal solution for domestic properties. They often block out the light and look severe and industrial.

Portchester's range of metal shutters provide all the benefits that you would expect from good quality building security products, whilst also being able to match a design to suit your needs!

Window security shutters and Door Shutters in Essex.

Lifestyle Shutters & Blinds understands the importance of physical security for your business and domestic property. We offer the installation and supply of top quality window security shutters throughout Essex and the surrounding areas.

The range of Portchester metal shutters that we supply and install are available in an assortment of styles to suit you. Including but not limited to; full height shutters, full width shutters, bi-fold window shutters and bypass shutters. There is a hidden tilt rod, so the louvres can be manually operated rather than by moving a rod up and down. Customers also have the option to install electric shutters operated by remote control at extra cost, but still at a competitive price.

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 your property. While Portchester shutters may not be a visual deterrent to intruders, like security grilles are, they offer more resistance to forced entry.

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 window shutters and would not look out of place alongside our other range of good quality shutters. The main discernible difference is the solid unit materials and subtle addition of a lock. They have been aesthetically designed to closely match our non-security shutter ranges, creating a seamless interior design suitable for every home.

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 weather protection from the elements if your property is particularly exposed, and can also be used as a window security barrier for summer houses, outdoor office buildings etc.

You will need to speak to your insurance company directly as all policies are different. Aluminium security shutters are sometimes classified as security barriers or gates which can affect the price of your policy. Our manufacturer is working towards being awarded a formal security classification for Portchester shutters.

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, planning an alternative escape route is highly advisable before installation and always make sure to keep exit doorways clear. Aluminium is generally considered to have a fire resistant quality.
