Installing Rolling Shutters might seem like a big investment, however, the benefits will often outweigh the cost. This is especially true for an area like Dallas-Fort Worth, where the sun is intense and the stormy weather can be severe.
Everyone knows that summer in Texas is no joke. With temperatures breaking 100 degrees F and the sun beating down, your home can feel like a sweat lodge. Even your air conditioning can’t always keep up with the heat, especially if your windows face east or west or your AC unit is exposed to direct sunlight. Rolling shutters will help keep the oppressive summer sun out of your home’s interior, reducing the strain on your cooling system and protecting your interior from being sun bleached.
One of the biggest benefits of outdoor shutters is that they can offer increased protection against the elements, even major storms. Sometimes referred to as “roll up shutters”, “roll down shutters”, or “rolling storm shutters”, they are designed to stop small pieces of flying debris that would otherwise damage or break your windows. The peace of mind alone is often worth the cost of rolling shutters as you won’t have to worry as much the next time a big storm is about to hit Dallas or Fort Worth.
Fences and window curtains are nice, but neither can offer the level of privacy of our rolling shutters. With the touch of a button, you can open or close all or some of your rolling shutters, allowing you to decide how visibly accessible your home is to the outside world. Our rolling shutters don’t just offer visual privacy, they also dampen sound from entering or exiting your home which is perfect if you want to have a party, loud movie night or enjoy a peaceful sleeping environment.
The ability to control interior visibility, coupled with the option to lockdown your windows and doorways, make rolling shutters the perfect addition to your home security setup. If someone can’t see into your home, they can’t “case” or evaluate the interior, making your home less of a “soft target”.
If an insurance company sees your home as low risk, you can often turn that into lower insurance costs. With our rolling shutters’ variety of security and storm protection features, you can make a strong case to your insurance company and benefit from a reduced insurance premium.
Our rolling shutters are installed to your home’s unique dimensions and layout. This can include everything from size and shape to colors and material. We will work with you to find the perfect rolling shutter setup that not only protects your home, but improves its aesthetic and appeal.
The better you can regulate the temperature of your home, the less you will need to use your heating and cooling systems. The less that your system is working, the less energy it will need to function. By reducing energy consumption, you can help mitigate your environmental footprint and reduce your utility bills.
There are few better ways to keep your home comfortable than with our rolling shutters system. Our shutters feature a modern foam core that stops 99% of the radiant heat from entering your home. This is especially crucial in Dallas and Forth Worth, as we all know too well how intense the sun and heat can get in the sweltering summer months.
Our outdoor shutter slats are made of aluminum, filled with a dense yet eco-friendly foam that adds strength and additional insulation. Our standard 40mm slat is our most commonly used slat and can cover openings out to 12 feet, depending on the height.
Our 55mm slat is used for wider openings and free expanses that sit between posts and columns. These slats interlock to prevent separation under any load. Perfect for use on applications of up to 16 feet wide, depending on the height.
These heavy-duty extruded slots add additional strength, security, and impact resistance. These have a hollow center and dead air space for added insulation.
*Only available via special order, check with us for colors and availability.
Our first test unit of 13 feet wide by 17 feet tall passed a wind speed pressure test of over 250 mph. We stopped testing only because the equipment was at max capacity. We never saw a slat fail, and it’s likely that these shutters can withstand the strongest winds on earth.
Rolling shutters are typically controlled with a motor using a built-in radio receiver. With one touch of the transmitter, you can lower, stop, and raise your shutters. A transmitter can operate each shutter one by one, or as a group. Our remotes are the best choice for flexibility in regards to upgrades and integration.
Our magnetic wall-mounted base allows you to conveniently store your remote at all times. Our remotes are available in both single or 15-channel. With single-channel remotes, you can control one shutter or one group of shutters. 15-channel remotes can control up to 15 shutters, separately or all at once.
Our wall switches are also available in single or 15-channel control options. Control one shutter or 15 at a time with our wall switch. Our wall switch also includes a master channel, allowing you to control everything at the same time. You can use our wall switch with both the Hub connector and the accompanying mobile app.
You can program our Hub Connector to operate your rolling shutters. With the Connector app, you can operate the radio transmitter motor individually or as a group, even when you’re not at home. Our Hub Connector is a great choice for the smart home with easy integration options with Alexa and Google Home.
We offer a free app that allows you to control your shutters from your phone. With the app, you can create different scenes for how you’d like to use your shutters, including a timing function for operations at times set by you. Alexa can also control your rolling shutters for you with our app.
