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!
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!Request a brochure
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.
Like all shutters, Portchester shutters also have total privacy, ultimate light and temperature control as well as increased kerb appeal, which can positively effect the price of your property!
