The Benefits Of Aluminium Shutters

Aluminium Shutters

Shutters have become a staple for many Australian homes, as a way to keep out the heat of the sun while allowing adequate airflow to keep your space cool. It isn’t hard to see why so many homeowners opt for shutters in their home.

In this post, we will outline some of the benefits that aluminium shutters can provide for your home.

Why Aluminium?

Shutters come in a variety of colours, styles and materials. From PVC to timber to metal, they are a versatile fitting that can fit a number of window shapes and sizes while complimenting the style and design of the space. However, not all materials are suitable in all cases. 

Where PVC is often too heavy for large windows, wood performs poorly in moisture and humidity. Aluminium shutters, on the other hand, prove to be the perfect material choice for most homes.


Aluminium is a material that’s known for strength, power and resilience. As such, aluminium shutters are not susceptible to damage, and can stand the test of time. 

Moisture Resistant

Most timber shutters will swell, warp and rot when exposed to wet conditions. Aluminium shutters are impervious to moisture, making them the ideal choice for bathrooms and kitchens. This also makes them highly resistant to rust and crrosion.

Light Weight

Aluminium is a lightweight material, making it both easy to handle and simple to install and are less likely to put pressure on your window frames.
