The testing standards for BAL-40 and BAL-FZ shutters are different. Meeting the BAL-40 standards is easier than meeting the BAL-FZ standards because the BAL-FZ shutters are designed to withstand more extreme fire conditions than BAL-40 shutters.
Your windows are one of the weakest points on your home, especially when a bushfire blows through. Structurally, windows are prone to cracking and breaking during these circumstances. Broken windows can be a gateway to sparks and embers that will then set your home or commercial building on fire on the inside.
Our stainless steel shutters protect your home from bushfires while also adding additional protection from prying eyes, noise, and sunlight/heat.
Of course—your shutters are designed to have all the normal components of regular shutters with the added protection against bushfires. In addition to providing excellent protection, your shutters work like roller shutters and provide insulation, noise reduction, and save you money on both window furnishings and energy cost.

The biggest appeal to bushfire shutters aside from protecting your home against fires is their security features. Shutters are huge deterrents for break-ins. They are a strong physical barrier that would take a lot of strength and make a lot of noise if anyone were to try and break-in.
Bushfire shutters will keep out about 90% of the heat gain through your windows, just like our roller shutters do. They keep the heat from permeating the glass, which is where the excess heat can result from.
Our shutters are installed on the outside, but you will control them from the inside. Outside installation is the most preferred method, however, due to some body corporate or council restrictions, they can be installed on the inside.
Yes! Roller shutters can be fixed with key locks on manually operated shutters. Typically, key locks are not fitted to electric shutters as they lock automatically.
We offer three different types of operating systems with our roller shutters:
AdShutters security window and door shutters are made from aluminum with a powder-coated finish, which helps keep them looking good and rust-free for a long time.
One of the best assets of roller shutters is that they are a strong physical barrier, which makes them a natural deterrent for break-ins. Additionally, it takes time and a lot of noise for someone to attempt to break through a roller shutter, which definitely deters people from trying it.
The roller shutters will keep out approximately 90% of the heat gain through your windows. Because roller shutters are installed on the outside, they prevent the heat from permeating the glass.

No, they are not. While many shutters are considered security shutters, there are some that do not have any type of locking mechanism, are not reinforced, or are created from thin, cheap material. Real security shutters will have shutter locks and be made from strong, insulating materials. Also, security shutters will have a strong bottom rail to prevent any forced entry.
Having a battery backup pack for your windows is highly recommended, especially for your bedroom shutters. Other living spaces have doors where you can get out in emergency situations, but your bedroom may become blocked. A battery backup will operate up to 8 times on average before it stops working and will keep you protected during these emergency situations.
