The percentage of houses with access to a garage in the UK is around 53%, meaning they are widely popular additions to any home. A garage offers an extra room for the home and can be used to store several things such as cars, bikes or any other items you can’t fit in your home. The most popular usage for a garage is to house vehicles that are likely a treasured possession that must be kept safe. This is where having secure garage roller shutters comes in handy.
The Benefits of Garage Roller Shutters
Garage roller shutters create a protected exterior to your garage, providing you with several benefits:
Protection Against Burglars
A garage is essentially its own room and requires as much security as you would use for your home. For example, having a garage roller shutter as the garage door shuts off the entrance and prevents theft.
If you store vehicles in your garage, the weather can be one of your biggest enemies. The weather can cause many problems for cars, such as when a vehicle is left unprotected from intense sunlight, the paint can begin to fade. Car parts made from plastic are also vulnerable to the elements as in extremely high temperatures, they may even melt. Cold temperatures in winter also pose a problem to the car’s battery as it will gradually drain the battery and soon become dead. Garage roller shutters protect your vehicle from the elements and avoid this type of damage.
Unlike regular garage doors or other security doors, garage roller shutters open vertically rather than outwards. This means that the space outside of the garage can be used freely as the shutters will not open out onto this.
