ALU-12M511 Insulated Aluminium Roller Shutter

Product Description

This model is the “big brother” to our ALU-12M411, catering to larger domestic openings to provide insulation. It has the option of vented slats to allow airflow when at full extension meaning that dependent upon the time of year, it can be used to either reduce heat loss or increase airflow whilst also providing security. They are also used as “high quality” curtains and block out nearly 100% of all light – ideal for those of you living in big cities or busy towns.

The canopy where the shutter rolls into can come as a square or rounded option depending on your preference.

Comes in 7 standard colours: White, Brown, Cream, Fir Green, Grey, Silver or Black.
