ViewProtect Security Shutters

Have you ever stopped and wondered what the features of a real security shutter should be like?

With so many options available on the market it is a difficult decision to make when getting various quotations on security shutters.

When it comes to security, one should never only look at the quoted price and compromise, but also dig a little deeper and study the various options available.

Some companies use plastic and aluminium parts as part of their security gear, such as lock pins and rods connecting various shutter sections.


More than ever, security is a concern for homeowners. At the same time, you don’t want to lose the aesthetic appeal of your home. It’s commonplace to see burglar bars and security gates on most homes in South Africa, this is part of the reason ViewProtect’s security aluminium shutters “stand out” from the rest. Offering security, privacy and at no cost to the aesthetics of your home.

The adjustable louvre blades are reinforced with hardened steel pins running through the end caps of each louvre to ensure an extremely robust yet attractive alternative to steel gates and burglar bars and replaces the need for additional security on windows and doors.
