Porchester Security Shutters
The new S: CRAFT aluminum Portchester Range of security shutters delivers safety and style in equal measures. It offers an additional layer of window protection if you want to enhance home security, but don’t wish to compromise on elegance. Whilst the Portchester range looks just like our normal elegant plantation shutters, there’s one clear difference. They also have a lock and key so are fully lockable shutters. Manufactured in South Africa, where home security is a high priority, these robust shutters are designed with both protection and poise in mind. It means you have an elegant alternative to installing heavy traditional security grilles, roller shutters, or burglar bars. These options may be a clear visual deterrent, but they aren’t the ideal solution. They often block out the light and look severe and industrial.
S: CRAFT Portchester shutters are different. They operate just like our other ranges and are available in most styles including full height, bi-fold, and bypass. There’s a hidden tilt rod, so the louvers can be operated by hand rather than by moving a rod up and down. This creates a sleek, modern design with elegant contours and clean lines. When locked, the louvers still work as before but the panels can’t be opened. So you can leave your windows open at night, for example, or protect a more vulnerable window or room in their property. While Portchester shutters may not be a visual deterrent to intruders (unlike their traditional counterparts), they do provide a stylish, yet robust additional layer of protection to homes.
