Mexim Caribbean, headquartered in Aruba, performs both residential and commercial renovation and construction services using European-quality products and materials. An increasing number of homeowners and business owners are realizing the many benefits of roller shutters for windows. Both products serve important purposes for any home. Here’s how Mexim’s roller shutters protect windows and add style to any home or building:
Roller Shutters Protect Windows from the Weather
High-quality aluminum roller shutter systems provide two main kinds of protection for your windows. First, they protect windows from the elements. The devastating hurricane season of 2017 in many parts of the Caribbean have made many people realize they need an extra layer of protection for their windows when the wind blows hard enough to cause damage. Although the islands of the Dutch Caribbean (Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire) are located well south of the hurricane belt, they are still exposed to storm winds and the constant strong trade winds that can pick and hurl objects at windows. Sturdy aluminum roller shutter systems give your windows that extra form of protection when you need it most. But more than just the wind, there’s the constant salt content of the air itself. Over time the saltiness of the air takes its toll on windows but roller shutters once again can provide greater protection that will keep your windows in better shape for years to come. Mexim can have European-quality roller shutter systems manufactured in a wide range of colors in order to perfectly match your home’s overall look while fitting right in with an unobtrusive design to provide you with a great combination both functionality and style.
Roller Shutters Protect Windows with Better Security
The second way roller shutters protect windows is by making your home more burglar-proof. One of the most common ways that thefts occur is when people aren’t home and a burglar breaks a window to enter the home. While no system is a guarantee of being 100% burglar-proof, one thing is clear: When a burglar comes up against a sturdy aluminum roller shutter system that prevents easy access to your windows, they will be much more likely to leave your home and look for one whose windows are easier to access. Whether you’re at home or away from home, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve greatly boosted the security of your home by installing roller shutters on all your windows.
Roller Shutters Protect Windows AND Your Comfort
Another great benefit of aluminum roller shutter systems is how they contribute to maintaining your preferred indoor climate. All Caribbean islands have tropical climates that are often quite hot, which makes air conditioning a necessity for most people. Preventing solar thermal gain through your windows is essential to keeping the indoor temperature right where you want it to be. Curtains and drapes on the inside can help, but you can actually stop the sun’s rays from ever hitting your windows during particular times of day with roller shutters. This will also have a positive financial impact on your wallet because you’ll end up using less electricity for your air conditioners! They won’t have to work as hard to achieve and maintain the cooler temperature you want indoors. And as an added benefit, keeping the sun’s rays from entering your home through its windows will also help preserve your curtains, drapes, furniture and carpet from fading over time due to excessive sunlight.
Roller Shutters Protect Windows AND Your Privacy
One final set of benefits to mention when you choose aluminum roller shutters for your home or business is the privacy factor. Put your roller shutters down and you’ll enjoy full privacy in your home without worrying about prying eyes being able to see in when you don’t want them to. And an added benefit is another layer of soundproofing, which means you’ll be able to maintain an even quieter, more peaceful environment inside your home or office. Drapes and blinds on the inside really can’t provide that kind of sound barrier!
As you can see, roller shutters protect windows from the wind and rain, offer greater security, help maintain your indoor climate, save money on air conditioning, and grant you more privacy and quiet when you want it. All these benefits can be yours at home or in any building when you choose Mexim’s roller shutter systems. The energy savings alone will pay for this investment over time.
