But why equip your lift and slide door with roller shutters at all? There are a number of reasons for this, an overview of which is featured below.
A lift and slide door offers comfortable access to the garden and lets daylight inside. The development of even the smallest plot of land means that we now live very close together. If there is no protection in the form of a hedge or fence, neighbours can look straight into your home through the patio door. Roller shutters are a simple and reliable solution for screening prying eyes and maintaining privacy.
To the same extent that they prevent neighbours from looking into your home, roller shutters also offer protection from strong sunlight. Because this not only damages furniture in the long run, but also increases the room temperature. Roller shutters are the ideal alternative, especially if you don't want to attach curtains or blinds to the lift and slide door.
Overheated rooms also lead to higher energy consumption due to need for air conditioning and fans, all of which you can counteract with roller shutters.
The special construction of lift-and-slide doors also achieves excellent thermal insulation, which can be further reinforced by the use of insulating glazing and roller shutters. In this way you can be sure in winter that warm heated air stays inside, which in the long run reduces heating costs.
Since conservatories are heavily heated and the plants are sensitive to extreme temperature fluctuations, roller shutters are a particularly practical choice.
A frequently underestimated advantage of roller shutters is their level of break-in protection. Due to its ground-level location, access via the terrace is a popular choice for intruders, which is why it's only logical to invest in security fittings, lockable handles and possibly even additional security for your sliding door.
Aluminium roller shutters are particularly suitable for noticeably increasing security. A roller shutter made of alu is stable and withstands all break-in attempts. If the system also happens to be operated electrically, it even has an anti-slide device that makes it impossible for potential intruders to simply push open the roller shutter.
