It’s no secret that installing a set of high quality shutters is a sure-fire way of improving the safety and security of your premises. Whether they’re for residential use or a commercial application, a set of roller shutters is bound to deter any potential burglars and vandals, while simultaneously avoiding causing a detrimental impact on the aesthetics of the building. We are all fully aware of the vast range of benefits that come with the installation of a set of quality roller shutters, and therefore it’s a little surprising that there are so many common misconceptions out there. These myths can actually put some people off purchasing any roller shutters, and are therefore putting properties around the country at risk of vandalism or theft. Well, fortunately we’re here at ABC to bust some of the biggest myths that are doing the rounds, so that you can be assured that roller shutters are certainly the way to go. Perhaps the biggest misconception out there regarding roller shutters, is the idea that they do very little in the way of protecting your premises. There are those that believe that a potential burglar can still break their way through a shutter, and that the installation of any shutters is just an unnecessary expense. However, this is simply not true. Roller shutters are renowned for their ability to add an extra layer of security to your building, and are made of incredibly strong materials that just cannot be penetrated. If you’re serious about improving the security of your business or your home, then roller shutters are an absolute must. Many people are put off purchasing a set of roller shutters because they believe that they are simply too expensive. They think that there is no need to shell out on shutters because it’s unlikely that anyone will try to break in or vandalise their property. However, without a set of roller shutters you are certainly leaving yourself open to crime- especially when you consider how attractive your building will look to burglars when they see the lack of security. Roller shutters are an investment that will keep your property safe and therefore save you money in the long run. Another common myth regarding roller shutters is the idea that they will require a lot of maintenance and looking after. Some people are put off purchasing roller shutter because they don’t like the idea of constantly worrying whether or not they are functioning properly, as they simply don’t have the time to keep maintaining them. Well, roller shutters are designed to be extremely durable and to stand up to the elements, meaning that the amount of maintenance they require should be kept to a minimum.
