Security roller shutters are made from aluminium or steel with tightly jointed slats forming a solid surface when closed. They are a good way of protecting a business and lowering insurance premiums when fitted with approved locking mechanisms.
It could be that your lease agreement doesn’t allow for external modifications to the premises.
The main reason is added security. Shutters are a physical barrier to thieves and they conceal the merchandise within the store, which removes the temptation to attack the business. Security shutters also lower insurance premiums because of their deterrent effect, and they protect windows and stock from storm damage.
Plantation shutters are traditionally made from wood, however they can also be made from PVC and given a texture to resemble wood when painted. But for a natural, authentic look, wooden plantation shutters have that casual elegance that home-owners desire.
Without doubt the main culprits for dust are venetian blinds, since they are often in a horizontal position allowing dust to settle on the surface. Roller blinds don’t have this problem as they are always vertical (or rolled up away from dust) and are easy to clean. It’s the multiple slats that make venetian blinds so versatile, adjustable and elegant that also make them number one for dust.
Outdoor blinds are more expensive, because they need to be made of durable material that can withstand the elements all year round. They are more effective at reducing heat inside the house because they stop sunlight from falling directly on to the window. Awnings, that project from the house, are particularly good at insulating the house from direct sunlight. Exterior blinds can be made of metal and cover the entire window, effectively sealing that point of entrance. For this reason, they are more effective for home security.
Roman blinds are made from fabric that is designed to pleat when it is raised so that when it is fully up the fabric forms a pleated line at the top of the window frame. A roller blind wraps around itself when raised, so that when it’s fully up it forms a cylinder at the top of the window frame. Both types form a single, sheer surface when fully down.

First, it’s important to think about the image you are hoping to project. If you want to impress on customers that you are a solid, no-frills business that is reliable and secure, then a flimsy roller blind won’t do. Steel security shutters give your office a secure appearance that inspires confidence in your clients. If the business emphasis is staying on-trend and creating a cool urban vibe, then venetian blinds are the way to go. They have been a modern style choice since modern style began.
Awnings extend away from the house, and are used to keep sun and rain off the house. Keeping the sun off the external walls keeps the house interior temperature lower. An exterior blind is mostly used for privacy, since they lie flat against the windows. Awnings have the advantage of acting as extra protection from the rain and sun for things like washing lines and allowing people to be just outside the house and still be protected from the elements.
