USA: Rolling Shutters: Rolling Shutter Manufacturers
ABOUT ROLLING SHUTTERS
Rolling Shutters can be retro-fitted to existing windows, or can preferably be built into new construction. They are normally made from interlocking aluminum slats (which may be foam filled) and are held in frames made from foam-filled aluminum extrusions. Rolling shutters provide excellent security, improve insulation against both heat and cold, and protect windows from weather and fading. They may be manually or electrically operated. Electric rolling shutters can have control from a central point, can incorporate timers, and can be linked to weather and light sensors for automated operation.
The leading manufacturers, listed below, have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects, including online catalogs, colours and materials, and care and maintenance.
