Plastic roller shutters

Light and safe: uPVC roller shutters for your windows

Roller shutters are a very important part of windows and doors: they contribute greatly to the protection of the building elements and comfort. They ensure privacy and increase energy efficiency, thermal energy, frost, noise, break-in and glare protection as well as heat and sun protection. Thanks to the light slits between the slats, you can always vary how much light you let in as well as the amount of rear ventilation, which is particularly important in summer. Aluminium and uPVC are the most popular materials for roller shutter curtains in roller shutter construction: profiles made from these materials are easy to care for, durable and robust.


Choose plastic profiles — enjoy many advantages

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a very low-maintenance, uncomplicated and lightweight material that can be used in many ways. Its high durability and weather resistance make it very popular in construction: Whether for flooring, windows, french doors, fittings, blinds or for roller shutter boxes and the roller shutter curtains of roller blinds — PVC can be manufactured and recycled very easily.

Plastic roller shutters are ideal for small to medium-sized windows, especially if you are looking for a lower price

PVC roller shutter curtains are specially processed to increase UV resistance and to prevent yellowing. Another valued property of the material is its low thermal conductivity:

Windows, but also roller shutters made of PVC, are therefore highly insulating without having to be specially foamed (such as aluminium roller shutter curtains, for example). They are therefore available at a significantly lower price with the same function.

Aluminium, on the other hand, is recommended for more robust constructions on large components

Alulux roller shutters

The uPVC leader from ALULUX

The basic roller shutter with guide rails from ALULUX is a uPVC roller shutter made from robust, extruded uPVC (rigid uPVC) with an integrated EPS Neopor high-performance insulation core and additional side insulation.

It thus ensures a significant improvement in energy efficiency in your home. The roller shutter is particularly impressive during installation due to its low weight and is suitable for all standard window sizes and various types of masonry. These include plaster and facing brickwork as well as ETICS facades (ETICS = external thermal insulation composite system).

The PVC add-on box system is particularly impressive during assembly thanks to its light weight and can be implemented in just one step using pre-assembly.

It is simply attached to the window. In addition to the side parts made from injection-moulded uPVC, it is also characterised by a convenient head piece with a feedthrough and a security device (lock) to prevent motor cables from moving.

Numerous roller shutter colours are available for the armoured slats, naturally including roller blinds in white, but also grey (light and light grey), roller shutters in beige, roller shutters in anthracite RAL 7016 and more.
