Shut the front door with roller shutter gates

This door is protected by rollershutters that are recessed into a cavity above the door when rolled up

Rollershutters make great front door security, particularly when they’re user-friendly aluminium ones.  The Trellidor Rollerstyle range is custom-made to suit your front door, no matter what size or shape.  Take a look at two pretty installations we’ve done, one in Durban and one in Johannesburg.


Trellidor Rollerstyle roller shutter gates are a practical solution to protecting average sized front doors.  They are real space-savers because they roll up into a compact overhead shutter box, completely out of the way and out of sight.  There is no bottom track, so nothing to trip over accidently, and the side tracks in the doorway are neatly fitted and hardly noticeable.

Closed rollershutters ‘lock down’ the front door when you close up for the night or go out, leaving the house unoccupied.  Roller shutter gates can also be used to block out unpleasant weather without having to close the front door itself.  You can choose slats that will allow in some air flow and light penetration when the rollershutter is rolled down for security purposes.

Customised roller shutter gates for designer doors

Front doors designed to make an impact can be difficult to protect due to their size or features such as multiple glass panels and over-sized door handles.  Rollershutters are often the answer because they can be manufactured to the unique specifications of each opening, accommodating any of these characteristics.

The large glass and wood front door of the Johannesburg home pictured here is secured by a Trellidor Rollerstyle shutter that you can’t see at all once rolled up.  The shutter box in this installation was recessed into a hidden cavity above the door and the side tracks are recessed into the wall, resulting in seamless, uncluttered security when you want to open up the house.
