How Roller Shutters Go Beyond Protecting Your Business

Posted on: 24 February 2021 by Horizons Group Ltd

Businesses across the world have chosen roller shutters for a long time in order to protect their goods and staff.

But that’s not the only reason they exist.

Roller shutters are indeed one of the best forms of security, thanks to a design which is created with a security-first mindset.

However, you’d be amazed by how much more a modern, professionally fitted set of roller shutters will do for your business.

They show you mean business and set the right first impression

Roller shutters are typically implemented in warehouses and commercial units. That’s because they feature a purposeful design which adds the right look and feel to the aesthetics of the building.

They always create the right first impression – an impression that’s vitally important for both employees and customers.

Even better – they’re super-simple. They don’t stand out, they’re anything but garish and there’s no chance of them dividing opinion. They simply have one job, which they do brilliantly.

Roller shutters show that you really mean business.

You can brand them

Did you know you can fully brand roller shutters, too? This is a great option for businesses who want to customise the look and feel of their frontage and offer memorability of premises.

This enables the most unlikely of business purchases to play a key role in marketing strategies. Arguably, if you’re a business with a prominent location, a branded set of roller shutters will actually play one of the most important roles in your marketing.

Modern roller shutters can be vinyl-wrapped and finished in pretty much any colour of your choosing. You can even add your logo and company name, if you wish.

They ooze convenience

No one wants a business entrance to be a pain to operate, and that’s another reason roller shutters are so popular.

They’re just so convenient. One simple press of a button both raises and lowers modern roller shutters and, when fully open, they take up next to no space whatsoever.

This means you can get in and out of your premises as easily and safely as possible, whether you’re on foot or in a vehicle. Also, a bit like garage roller doors, roller shutters don’t protrude at all when opening or fully open, thus allowing vehicles to park far closer to the premises, if needed.

They can let light in too, if required

There’s such a thing as ‘vision’ roller shutters, which enable the outside world to see what lies beyond when they’re closed.

These are most commonly found on store fronts where the owner wants the inside of the building to be visible, even when they’re closed.

It’s a great way to continue advertising your wares, 24/7, and gives passers-by (potential customers) a nice glimpse at what you have to offer when open.

There are three types of vision shutter to choose from:

  • grille (offers 80% vision)
  • perforated (offers 20% vision)
  • punched (offers somewhere in the middle of the two above in terms of vision)

And if you think vision roller shutters must be less secure given their design, think again. They’re just as ‘secure by design’ as their fully closed counterparts and can be branded in the exact same way.

I think I need roller shutters: what next?

If you’re now thinking that you need the convenience, security and customisability of roller shutters, you’re probably wondering what to do next.
