Last updated on



Whether you live in a super safe community or a suburb with a rising crime rate, ensuring that your home is secure is a must.

Nu Style Shutters is Perth’s leading manufacturer of high quality custom-made roller blinds, roller shutters, window shutters, security doors and screens. If you are unsure of the best way to protect your home, read on to find out more about the available options.

Security Screens and Doors

As well as acting as a visible deterrent, security screens and doors are a physical barrier between any would-be intruders and your home. A high quality, robust security screen can prevent intruders from breaking windows, picking locks and forcing doors open. An additional benefit is that security screens also protect against harsh weather and storm debris and prevent flies and other pests from entering your home whilst still allowing air circulation and light flow. An affordable home security solution, security screens usually do not require ongoing maintenance and many insurance companies will often reduce their premiums once they are professionally installed.

Roller Shutters

Roller Shutters are one of the most cost-effective security investments you can make. Providing an physical barrier between your home and an intruder, they are sure to deter even the most determined and desperate thieves from targeting your property. Roller shutters can be added to all doors and windows and offer a wealth of other benefits as well, some of which include:

  • Improved insulation – roller shutters will absorb heat from the sun and prevent it from entering your home, and prevent warm air from escaping during winter.
  • Protection against wild weather, bush fires and storm damage.
  • Control the amount of natural light you can let into your home – roll them up to brighten an indoor space or roll them down to sleep in complete darkness.
  • Domestic roller shutters can help you reduce outdoor noise – ideal for homes on busy roads.

Home Alarm Systems

Great for homes which require monitoring 24/7, alarm systems are simple to use and can often be operated remotely from a smart device. While home alarm systems are great for alerting you to intruders or suspicious behaviour around your home, it doesn’t necessarily prevent break-ins. For a quick and determined intruder, a loud-sounding alarm doesn’t come with the same benefits of a solid physical barrier. Professionally installed alarm systems can also be expensive, and may require ongoing software updates or an upgrade when newer technologies arise.

Security screens, shutters and alarm systems all have their pros and cons, so having a combination of these is a fantastic way to protect your home and family. If you want the most cost-effective solution, then roller shutters are the best option. Providing a higher level of security, unlike alarms which only notify you once a break in is occurring, roller shutters provide a physical barrier and visual deterrent, strengthening your first line of defence whilst security grills and doors give peace of mind when your asleep or away from your home.
