At Plantation Shutters, we are constantly looking to modernise the shutter industry and push the boundaries of providing products and service that are second to none. Being the longest established shutter company in the UK, it’s fair to say we have built up quite a lot of intelligence about what you are after when it comes to shutters.

Over the years, questions often get asked about the standard of security that our shutters bring when installing in your home. Although we would never suggest that our wooden shutters should be used instead of normal security measures, we often hear feedback about the positive impact with peace of mind and discretion thanks to having shutters as a part of a client’s home.
We introduced locks and bolts to our interior shutters to provide some additional security measures, but we wanted to go that extra step further and be able to offer a top security shutter that does the job properly (but maintain that sleek and stylish design that we relish in at Plantation).
Now, the time has arrived, to introduce Aluminium Security shutters to our range. They are a type of plantation shutter that is made entirely from aluminium and can double up as a security measure for your windows and doors. Not that you can tell its aluminium at first sight. It works as a dependable security addition to your home but doesn’t compromise on the attractive design or function of our beautiful shutters.
It uses panels that host adjustable slats that operate just like our existing range, furthermore, the robust aluminium shutter uses an easy key and lock feature to lock the shutter into place. Simple, but effective. Combining completely aluminium panels and framing to produce a highly effective security measure to your home, without the need for ugly bars across your windows and the best bit is we carry out all the work for you.

With the carefully measured frame being made from aluminium as well, all in one seamless action, rods click into place in both the top and bottom frame creating one powerful structure.
