Aussies love a good holiday.

But if you’re heading off for a Christmas getaway, is your home protected?

It’s important to know your house is safe when you’re not there, but security measures like CCTV cameras and alarms only alert you after a break in, not prevent them. With secure roller shutters you can head off on a well-deserved break knowing your home and contents are safe.

If protecting your Perth home is your #1 priority, here are a few crucial things to consider.

What are roller shutters?

Roller shutters are a protective shutter installed above your home’s doors or windows. At home you can enjoy natural light and warm Perth sunshine. Then, when you head out for a day at Rottnest Island or a trip to Scarborough Beach you simply lower your door shutters or window shutters to protect your home. Perth shutters are typically made from metal, with steel and aluminium roller shutters a popular, modern and stylish choice.

How will roller shutters keep my home safe?

Burglars often target windows because they’re easy entry points, with a brick turning any window into an access point. Even if burglars don’t want to risk waking the neighbourhood with the sound of breaking glass, menacing criminals are experts at removing window frames without a sound.

Installing shutters offers the ultimate protection against break ins and theft. Manual or electric roller shutters are closely fitted to your doors and windows to prevent access, no matter what tools a burglar has. Security shutters can’t be broken into, leaving your possessions safe and sound.

At Perth Homeguard we’re experts on low-cost roller shutters, but the Western Australian police know a thing or two about safety too. They recommend:

“You can dramatically reduce the chances of your home being burgled, with some common sense and the installation of simple effective security measures such as deadlocks, window locks and security grills.”

Roller shutters are a proven visual deterrent 

If you’ve been burgled before you know how stressful it can be. Having someone enter your home is upsetting, especially if you’ve got kids. Roller shutters add a layer of security that other forms of home protection can’t match.

Security shutters are a proven visual deterrent against would-be burglars. If you live on a busy street you could be exposing your valuables to potential thieves without knowing it.

  • Gaming console
  • Electronics
  • Jewellery
  • Cash
  • TV

These valuables can tempt thieves who mark your home as a target. But with security shutters down, your valuables are out of sight and out of mind.

The benefits of installing roller shutters before Christmas

Christmas is an exciting time for friends and family to get together and celebrate. With the challenges of 2020, it’s more important than ever to be with loved ones (with plenty of hand washing of course). While Christmas is an exciting time for Perth residents, it’s also an exciting time for crafty crooks.

When Perth homes are full of new gifts (if Santa has been good to you) burglaries go up.

Installing a security shutter before Christmas keeps your pressies safe. At the same time, if you plan on spending a little time away from home over the New Year you can leave your property knowing everything will be safe and sound when you get home.

Have you protected your Perth home against holiday break-ins?

Your home is your sanctuary. It feels great to have protection like:

  • a high-tech alarm system
  • CCTV camera
  • Motion sensor lights

But these are reactive security measures. Footage of an intruder might help the police, but there’s no guarantee you’ll get your valuables (or your confidence) back.

Roller shutters Perth families trust are the proven preventative measure against holiday break-ins. Thick aluminium roller shutters prevent thieves from seeing your home as a target, and provide a physical barrier that stops unwanted access 365 days a year.
