Without special glazing, large patio doors can lead to reduced privacy as onlookers can peer in. Roller shutters are a good alternative or additional solution to curtains here as they can be used to better protect interiors from outside views. They don’t, however, collect dust on the inside as curtains do and can add to the building exterior’s design.
Alongside providing great privacy covering for glazed patio door façades, roller shutters add an extra layer which hinders break-in attempts. Although patio doors can feature strong laminated safety glazing and additional locking, adding a shutter can make the entrance look less visually vulnerable or appealing to potential intruders.
The high-quality aluminium curtain or modern engineered uPVC are also impact-resistant and hard to break through.
Functional performance meets tailored design
Installing a roller shutter with patio doors adds an extra layer of high-quality material which enhances the doors' thermal insulation values. Some profiles such as the top-mounted premium model and front-mounted flush design are also reinforced with innovative Neopor® foam insulation. This superior thermal efficiency can then reduce usage of conventional heating and cooling systems and so saves on energy bills.
