Equilux Shutters

Residential security shutters for security, style and absolute peace of mind

Residential security shutters are becoming more popular among modern homes in the UK to protect against increasing crime rates. The past perception of roller security shutters is that they are obtrusive, unattractive, and mainly used for business or retail premises, but, when working with an appropriate solutions provider, you will find a variety of options that can enhance your home security without compromise on design or aesthetics.

Currently unmatched within the security solutions market, Equilux residential security shutters are a completely unique approach to home security and are specifically designed for prestigious residencies of ultra-high net worth individuals.

Of the three fundamental elements of a property – the perimeter, shell and interior – there are various ways to reinforce the structural architecture of luxurious homes against intruders. Offering a range of solutions, Equilux Shutters are specifically manufactured to ensure unobtrusive security whilst enhancing the original and unique features of the property. Completely tailored to the home’s design and architectural structure, the mechanics of security roller shutters can be integrated within the very fabric of the building – therefore removing the need for an unsightly hood box.

It’s no surprise that luxury new build properties are a prime target for criminality, so when planning a luxury new build project, it’s important to research what security options are available, this is because they can differ a lot to those at a retro-fit stage. Equilux residential security shutters are most efficiently integrated within a property when included in the early architectural and structural planning stage. This ensures the property structure can support the shutters. Equilux offers the latest in prestigious residential construction technology, with the ability to intelligently incorporate shutters control through building management systems (BMS).

A wide range of shutter styles are available through the Equilux Security Shutter range for applications requiring unique solutions, such as shutters requiring extremely compact rolling zones for retrofit situations with limited space, bespoke measurements, a wide range of finishes to any RAL colour to best suit the property’s design, and all products are manufactured at our purpose-built facilities here in the UK. Our Equilux range offers both internal and external security shutters, each providing unique advantages. Either option will provide the same level of security.

Residential security for luxury homes

For private residences, internal security is rarely the top priority, however, opportunist burglars are uncommon. Individuals of high net worth (HNW) and the ultra-high net worth (UHNW) are more at risk from determined and experienced criminals, therefore, must protect their prestigious properties, livelihoods and families. Risk profiling is an essential task for determining specification requirements. Designing the residence against a specific threat is the most comprehensive way of ensuring a property is secure.

When researching residential security shutter suppliers, it’s important to look for a company that can offer a bespoke service to ensure that your luxury property can remain aesthetically pleasing without compromising on security. For example, if a homeowner requires a security shutter that can still be put to use even when indoors, an Equilux perforated shutter will allow vision and airflow through the property. This can be particularly beneficial when doors and windows are open but security is still needed.

 

Frequently asked questions

What are common threats to individuals of high net worth?

HNWI and UHNWI are not only concerned with common criminal offences such as theft and vandalism but targeted attacks, including kidnapping and hostage situations. For properties in the prime residential sector, there must be consideration beyond locks and deadbolts for securing the residence.


Aren’t visual deterrents enough security?

While measures such as CCTV and alarm systems act as effective deterrents, they’re not always enough to stop criminals from attempting to break into your property. Domestic roller shutters can make your home highly impenetrable by protecting all windows and doors. It’s important to consider a security-rated or high resistance product. For the luxury residential market, Charter Global offer high-end shutters that offer security without compromising aesthetics.


Where should I be placing residential security shutters?

It’s useful to make your property secure from the outside in order to discourage potential burglars from even considering your home as a target. In the majority of domestic theft cases, criminals have used main entrances and windows, either by bodily force or use of tools. Glass panels on doors & windows are particularly vulnerable, so we’d recommend starting there.


If I need external shutters, what are my options?

Equilux shutter designs include a requirement for access panels to the shutters, therefore, incorporating access panels whilst maintaining the interior design ideas can be challenging. Our technical design team work closely with interior designers and architects to ensure our solutions suit the needs of specific property requirements.
