The slat curtain is the primary part of a shutter – it’s what stands between the inside of your home/business and the outside world. We offer two types of slat (foam-filled and extruded metal) in two sizes.
|Mini Foam||Standard Foam||Mini Extruded||Standard Extruded|
|Compostion||Rolled Aluminum with Foam||Rolled Aluminum with Foam||Extruded Aluminum||Extruded Aluminum|
|Resists Damage During Crime Attempt|
|Hurricane-Rated||Up to 12ft.||Up to 20ft.|
|Insulates Against Heat, Cold, and Noise|
|End Retention Option|
We offer 8 colors for our foam-filled slat and 3 colors for our extruded slat. All slat are powder-coated at specialized facilities.
Add a key lock to your shutter as an additional layer of security. This is available for all manually-operated shutters.
Take your shutter security the extra mile by adding end retention. This makes it nearly impossible to push the shutter out of its guiderails, ensuring that nobody gets in. This is available for our extruded slat.
Concerned that extreme wind could push your shutters out of their guiderails? Invest in a storm bar to provide additional strength to your shutters on windy days.
For shutters on a bedroom window or a critical commercial entrance, we offer manual overrides to allow operation of the shutter independent of the motor.
One of the less-known features of a rolling shutter is that you can still get light through the shutter while providing protection and insulation. Because of perforation of the slat at the hinge, you can have “in-between” light control in your room.
Our motorized shutters offer obstacle detection, ensuring that even if you forget to move the patio furniture from under the shutter, it won’t damage itself or the furniture! Shutters will gently close on an obstacle, stop, and retract to a safe position.
Our shutter motors can be connected to smartphone apps / “Internet of Things” technology via a separately-sold hub. This will allow you to use common smart home apps to automate the operation of your shutters.
We offer a variety of ways to get your shutters. For customers in the Metro Phoenix area, we will install the shutters ourselves. Outside of Arizona, we ship through a national network of dealers who will manage your installation. If you are handy enough to install your own shutter, we can ship shutters nationwide or have you pick up your shutters from our facility in Tempe, AZ.
We encourage customers to consider mixing and matching their operation mechanism depending on their use case. For businesses, it may make sense to have all of your shutters operated by remote but leave the shutter over your back door keypad-operated to ensure employees can close/open your facility without a key.
