We know safety comes first but there is no reason it can’t be elegant and chic.

ShutterGuard® looks good and works smartly! These folding, aluminium louvred shutters will open up a room, control light, noise and temperature with the added benefit of keeping you safe.

The innovative, patented system from Taylor provides a two-way locking system, making it virtually impenetrable.

  • The patented Gear-lock keeps the shutters in place
  • A 6cm patented bolt secures the shutters to the floor, leaving no leverage to lift the lock out of the track
  • A 3.4cm bolt secures the top track when locked
  • The Cisa system allows you to lock the shutters with a unique security key.  Should you wish to have a double-sided lock please request this with us.
  • An added security feature is the louvre lock pin that secures the closed louvre panel

All of these security measures are designed to make the entire shutter extremely difficult to break through.  Stringent security tests have been successfully carried out.

ShutterGuard®  is manufactured entirely from aluminium and can be fitted to almost any window and door and the louvres are fully adjustable.   Each unit is ‘Taylorised’ to ensure a precision fit and perfect functionality.

The standard finish is white or bronze but our ShutterGuard®  and Hurricane Shutters can be powder-coated to complement your colour scheme and décor. Please note that an additional surcharge will apply for custom-made colours.

Whether it is privacy, security or an uninterrupted view you’re after – speak to us about ShutterGuard®, there is no need to compromise on safety or style.
