Shutter drive and control specialist, Elero, is breaking new ground in the domestic security market. The owner of a prestige Victorian property has selected motorisation on shutters fitted to the ground floor at the back of the property where it is most vulnerable. "Our mission is to break the myths about shutters on homes. Modern shutter systems are attractive, easy to use and compliment almost every style of home," explained Elero director Paul Connor.

The Victorian home is in a mature suburb Stockport. The high strength shutters are made from precision extruded aluminium lath with a first class brown gloss finish to harmonise with the surroundings. The air gap between shutter and glazing improves thermal efficiency. During the daytime the shutters can be lowered to control glare.

The shutter installation is attractive and does not detract from the property. One of the protected openings is a French window - often a weak point in home defence. However, the addition of the shutter is itself a major deterrent as well as being a significant physical barrier if attacked. Despite the size of this shutter motorised operation allows easy opening and closure by use of the wall mounted switch or a remote control.

"In continental Europe motorised shutters are installed in most new homes to provide a better environment. Here, sadly, we see shutters as just a security measure when they can add so much to the efficiency and comfort of the home," commented Paul. Elero only supply motors and controls, but can recommend approved installers throughout the UK who can provide prompt local service.
