Why buy aluminium shutters

There are many benefits to choosing shutters for your home, but there are even more benefits when you choose aluminium as the material option.

So, why choose specifically aluminium shutters?

They're stylish

The streamlined appearance of aluminium shutters features clean and modern lines in the form of the horizontal louvres. These louvres come in three size options to help define your style further.

100% child safe

At ABC Blinds, all of our window treatments meet international child safety standards. Out of all our blinds, shutters are definitely a great option for homes with children, as they don't have any hanging cords or chains.

These shutters also have no sharp edges that children could hurt themselves on and are completely safe for them to be close to.

This not only adds to their stylish appearance, but it also gives parents and pet-owners total peace of mind.


Aluminium is one of the most lightweight and durable materials on the market. It's also a great choice for any room of the home that's frequently exposed to moisture, as it won't warp, bend, crack, or peel.

This durability means that indoor aluminium shutters are a great option for wet and humid areas of your house like your bathroom, kitchen, or laundry.

Easy to operate

Aluminium shutters are designed to be free from clunky control bars.

To operate, simply adjust one blade and you adjust them all to achieve your desired level of sunlight and airflow.

Add value to your home

This timeless style appeals to most homebuyers and can match most types of décor. Plus, as already mentioned, aluminium shutters are incredibly durable. They also add an extra level of security which often appeals to homebuyers.

Create a private outdoor space

By installing shutters in your outdoor area, you can create a private space away from any prying eyes as well as to have a space that's sheltered from the somewhat unpredictable weather Australia is known for experiencing.

Types of Aluminium shutters

Indoor Shutters

Modern indoor aluminium shutters are extremely energy efficient as they create an additional layer of insulation and keep the air in your home at a comfortable temperature.

As well as providing energy efficiency, these indoor shutters provide easy light control, views, privacy, and ventilation in any room of the house. They're also a great choice for sliding doors, being incredibly easy to operate and low maintenance – only requiring the occasional dusting.

Outdoor Shutters

Given Australia's mild climate, we spend a lot of time enjoying the weather from the comfort of our backyards, patios, or balconies.

Due to the extended time spent outdoors, it's important to make sure your alfresco area can offer protection from the harsher elements throughout the year.

With practical (and stylish) UV protection, privacy, and ultimate durability, outdoor aluminium shutters are a guaranteed way to improve your outdoor space.
