How Do Roller Shutters Work?

Looking around your neighbourhood, you may have noticed that many homeowners have invested in roller shutters and are quickly discovering the many benefits.

If you’re curious about what roller shutters are, how they operate, and the different types, read on.

What purpose do roller shutters serve?

Roller shutters are increasingly popular due to their many advantages, such as:

  • Safeguarding your family, with increased security and privacy
  • Effective insulation, leading to  savings on heating and cooling bills
  • Reduction of outside noise
  • Control over light and airflow entering your home
  • Protecting your home from the elements, including severe weather

What are roller shutters and how do they work?

Available in a diverse range of colours to match the aesthetics of your house, it’s easy to find the perfect roller shutter solution. Modern roller shutters are made from aluminium, and consist of slats that are joined together to provide a protective barrier for windows. Our ThermoShield residential slat is filled with a special insulated foam, designed to absorb heat on hotter days and trap warm air in winter.

Our roller shutters are electric, and they operate with the touch of a button. When fully retracted, they are tightly rolled up into a sleek pelmet box.

Types of roller shutters

There are three types of roller shutter systems: electric, battery and manual. Titan Shutters deals exclusively in electric roller shutters, for a couple of reasons.

  •  They require little effort to operate; traditional winder systems are operated by cumbersome and heavy winder handles, whilst Titan’s state-of-the-art motorised drive system operates with the touch of a button. 
  • They are extremely durable: our hard-wired, high quality motors will see that your shutters don’t miss a beat, whereas the external battery which is relied on by other systems needs to be charged, periodically replaced, and may need to be moved between shutters to operate them.

If you are considering investing in roller shutters, bear in mind the benefits offered by an electric system, including: 

  • Easy to open and shut
  • Durable and reliable
  • Attractive and timeless design
