Protecting property with security shutters
What is a security shutter?
Security shutters are physical measure implemented on a property to protect against forced entry. Integrated within the structure of the building or installed as a retrofit measure, there a number of different type of security shutters:
- Roller shutters
- Stacking shutters
- Tube and link shutters
Essentially a shutter provides a retractable layer of protection for entrances and apertures.
Durable and an obvious deterrent, security roller shutters are a highly effective physical security measure that can be specified for both high risk and low-risk properties.
The primary role for a security measure is to be as visually obvious as possible. Protecting an entrance, whether it be a Retail storefront entrance or a Healthcare facility’s car park, is vital for ensuring a level of protection.
