Interior designers and homeowners are looking for reliable security barriers that will provide safety without compromising the aesthetic value of their property. American Shutters’ innovative Security Shutter range offers homeowners the same style and beauty as traditional shutters, but includes an industry-first security operation system that nullifies the need for unsightly tilt bars – and allows for unobstructed views.

The louvres of the Gear Tilt system are secured into the shutter framework from both sides to improve security and construction strength. The shutters are secured with a key lock, which operates a steel bolt locking the top and bottom of the shutter panel simultaneously.

This Security Shutter range has undergone stringent tests and results prove consistent problem-free operation over an equivalent period of 10 years of daily opening and closing. It delivers excellent privacy and light-block, and offers finish options from Satin White to custom colour powder coating. This range is manufactured for South African conditions from 100% recyclable architectural grade aluminium, with stainless steel components to ensure longevity while guarding against corrosion.
