5 Ways Security Doors, Screens and Shutters Protect Your Home and Family

Last updated on



A strong security system is your home’s first line of defence, protecting both your property and your family against both unwanted intruders and environmental threats. When most people think of security systems, alarms come to mind, but the most effective way to keep your home and family safe is with robust security screens, security doors and roller shutters. At Nu Style Shutters, we are Perth’s favourite supplier of high quality window shutters, screens and security doors – here are 5 ways they can help protect your family and home.

They Deter Potential Burglars

Security doors, screens and shutters are a visual deterrent to would-be thieves. Breaking into a home protected by these features requires increased effort, noise and time making it a high-risk prospect. This is the opposite of what most thieves are looking for and will instead aim for an easier target. Most homes with security doors, screens and window shutters never experience an attempted break-in for this reason.

They Provide a Significant Barrier to Entry

Not all thieves are smart, so there may be one that decides to target a home with these security features installed. However, you can rest easy knowing that security doors and roller shutters have been designed to defend against even the most determined attacks and can withstand:

  • High impacts including kicks
  • Attempts to lever it open
  • Attempts to open it using knives or other cutting implements

They Protect Your Privacy

Whether you’re away from your home for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks, you can pull your rollers shutters down completely, blocking off any view of the interior of your home from the outside world. This eliminates any prying eyes looking into your home while it is unattended. Mesh security doors and screens also reduce the ability of individuals outside your home from peering inside, protecting your privacy and preventing would-be thieves from seeing your valuables or if your home is currently occupied.

They Provide Protection from the Elements

Security screens, doors and shutters also offer great protection from rain, hail, sun and even tropical cyclones. In storms and cyclones, windows can become quite vulnerable to any falling and flying debris, strong winds or hail. Shutters and screens can withstand high impacts and harsh elements, keeping your windows intact and providing excellent protection to your home and its occupants.

They Offer Protection Against Insects and Other Pests

Australia is synonymous with flies, mosquitos, spiders and other insects and while these are generally more of a nuisance than a threat to life, you still don’t want them buzzing around or lurking inside your home. You can keep your windows open during summer and be sure that pesky insects and other unwanted intruders will be kept outside where they belong.
