Aluminium shutters are a great choice for indoor and outdoor use, helping you control the level of light and airflow and adding a fresh, contemporary look to your space.
Aluminium is a great material for creating sturdy, reliable shutters that won’t bend or warp over time. Read on to explore options for installing indoor and outdoor aluminium shutters in your space.
Aluminium plantation shutters are in-demand for their stylish appearance and practical benefits. This louvred window covering has been popular since the 18th century and originates from large plantation farms in the American South, where they were used to increase airflow and block out the hot summer sun. This has made them a must-have for scorching summers and temperamental winters in Australia.
The wider spacing between each slat allows more air to circulate in your living space, perfect for large or stuffy rooms and open-plan areas. Aluminium shutters create a tight seal when closed, allowing them to more effectively block out light and air to keep your living areas cool. This also provides more privacy to your home or business.
When it comes to installing quality aluminium shutters, we pride ourselves on providing efficient, proactive service to make things easy for our customers. Our expert installers go the extra mile to ensure your shutters will stand the test of time. We always treat our customer’s homes and businesses with the utmost respect, protecting your furniture and cleaning up to ensure a hassle-free installation process.
If you’re looking to add a set of shutters to your space, we’ve put together a detailed breakdown of our shutter installation process.
The installation process for plantation shutters will take around 8 weeks. Get the ball rolling today and install a set of high-quality, value-adding shutters to your home or business with Blinds-N-Shutters.
Yes! Aluminium plantation shutters are easier to clean than traditional shutters thanks to their wider panels, which gives you more room to use cleaning brushes and cloths. Simply run a damp cloth or duster over the surface of each panel to remove any dust that has settled on your shutters. A damp cloth will also work for getting rid of any smudges or liquid stains.
Wipe down your indoor and outdoor shutters at least once per week to keep them looking good as new. While aluminium shutters are known to be sturdy and are able to withstand harsh weather conditions, we recommend checking your outdoor shutters after intense storms to ensure they haven’t been damaged or marked by mud, dust and debris.
Similar to timber and Fusion Plus shutters, aluminium shutters are a stylish addition to your home and can be customised to enhance your existing home decor themes. White aluminium plantation shutters are a great choice for modern homes as they enhance the open, clean appearance favoured by contemporary homeowners.
Much like Fusion Plus, aluminium shutters are resistant to water, making them ideal for installation in humid areas like bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens.
For a cosier look, our aluminium shutters can be customised with a timber-look finish to give the appearance of hardwood. Our shutters can also be customised with eight different colours to suit your style.
We recommend aluminium shutters for contemporary and minimalist homes due to their clean appearance and their ability to let more light into your home.
Yes! Aluminium shutters block UV rays and sunlight, helping to reduce the amount of heat entering your home. When closed, they provide an effective barrier against both cold and warm breezes, great for climate control in winter and summer. This is because when you close your aluminium shutters, they create a seal against the window that effectively blocks airflow from entering.
Aluminium plantation shutters make it easier to control sunlight in your home, as they create an even tighter seal when closed that blocks more sunlight than regular shutters. On the flip side, the wider gaps between each panel allow more light to get in, helping you warm your home on cold days.
The extra layer of insulation provided by shutters gives you more control over your home’s temperature. Because of this, aluminium shutters are a great way to increase the energy efficiency of your home. Your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard in summer to keep your house cool. Meanwhile, heaters can more effectively heat up a room as less warm air will leak outside when the shutters are closed.
All shutters will be hot to the touch when exposed to sunlight for long periods of time, especially in summer. Being metal, you may expect your aluminium shutters to absorb more heat than timber or Fusion Plus shutters, but the small difference in heat between timber and aluminium won’t affect your home’s internal temperature.
Colour is actually the main factor affecting heat absorption in your shutters. While all shutters will reach the same temperature when exposed to the same amount of sunlight, darker shades will absorb heat quicker and hold it for slightly longer. We recommend choosing a lighter shade of shutter for your home if thermal control is your biggest priority.
Aluminium shutters are effective at reducing the amount of light and noise that will enter your home. However, a roller shutter will provide you with superior noise cancellation and block any external light from your home or business.
Our range of motorised roller shutters completely blocks all light from entering your home and are engineered to run quietly and efficiently. Control your shutters conveniently via remote control and control the temperature of your home with comprehensive insulation.
Roller shutters add more privacy by completely blocking the internal view of your home. They’re also more effective at stopping light and noise from escaping your room, meaning that night owls won’t have to worry about disturbing their neighbours throughout the night. Plus, the lack of slats makes roller shutters harder to break through.
If you want to reduce light and noise but prefer the classic style of traditional shutters, we recommend pairing a set of Fusion Plus shutters with blockout fabric curtains. Fusion Plus shutters provide up to 70% more insulation than hardwood shutters, while heavy-duty blockout fabric effectively blocks light while still keeping the timeless appearance of shutters.
Yes! Aluminium shutters are in demand with property buyers thanks to their many practical benefits.
The classic, eye-catching appearance of aluminium shutters makes them easy to match with many existing home decor themes. Superior insulation means that your home will provide better temperature control than traditional shutters. Plus, plantation shutters make your home more energy efficient by controlling the amount of light and heat entering your home, taking the strain off your fans, air conditioners and heaters.
Their sturdy construction means that aluminium shutters will appear new for years to come, especially with frequent cleaning. They also give your home added privacy, a must-have for houses on busy streets.
