European rolling shutters have been used in Europe for over 100 years. In Germany they are called Rolladens & in Italy they are known as Persianas. They were first used here in the United State for storm protection in hurricane states. Currently people use the shutters for security, sun protection, insulation, noise reduction, black out blinds, privacy & as a moving wall for kiosk, patios, cabanas, counter tops or an outside T.V. Installed on the outside they operate from the inside with manual or motorized options. We provide different curtain & track designs with multiple color combinations. The curtain which is made up of individual slats can be vinyl roll formed aluminum with foam core, or extruded aluminum profiles. Most jobs involve existing construction where the new shutters are intergrated to match existing work. New construction allows the shutters to be built into the walls or soffits & requires careful coordination between architect, contractor & installer. Over the years this is the home improvement that people refer to as the best money they spent on their house. Our commercial customers like the new see through slat designs & so do their landlords.
