Why Roller Shutters Are More Important Than Ever

Here at ABC Industrial, we try to emphasise the importance of both residential and commercial security at every opportunity. After all, there is no time like the present to start investing in your property in order to ensure that it is protected against those who wish to cause intentional damage. In fact, experts say that the roller shutter, one of the most effective yet affordable security solutions, is increasing in popularity each year. Read on as we go through a few reasons why they could be considered more important than ever in 2019…


It is no secret that intentional crime like burglary and vandalism are on the rise. In fact, statistics show that criminals look for easy targets that do not have extra reinforcements implemented into their security and actually scope out a property before carrying out a crime in order to see whether there are any hidden deterrents in place. A roller shutter is a great way to deter criminals from targeting a property as they are incredibly difficult to break through and often attract a lot of attention, something a thief doesn’t want.


Roller shutters have done a complete 180° flip when it comes to aesthetics and they are no longer the drab eyesore they were once known as. In fact, industrial companies now offer the ability to customise a roller shutter design in order to ensure that they can appeal to the aesthetic preferences of every property owner. From style to colour, the days of sacrificing security for style are certainly long gone.


Alongside aesthetics, many business owners also use their roller shutters for marketing too. After all, when they are closed they create a literal divide between the customer and the shop window. By using spray paints, artists will design a high-quality and inviting company advertisement onto the shutter so that it can protect from criminals and vandalism whilst effectively spreading the word about a company’s services at the same time. When it comes to security, the ABC Industrial team are the experts you can count on. After all, we try to be as helpful as we can and strive for customer satisfaction after every purchase is made which is why we encourage every property owner to invest in their security. In fact, with increasing crime and vandalism statistics, there is no better time to make a change.
