Use security doors to expand your entertainment area

Roller shutter doors protect entertainment areas 

Many of us would have been reminded during the recent school holidays that we’re a bit short on space when we’re all at home and joined by friends and relatives.  Here’s how to use security doors to create more room:


Verandas with open sides are perfect for roller shutters, especially if it’s a wrap-around one.  Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium roller shutters are lightweight and easy to open, simple to work and they roll up and down far more quietly than steel shutters.  We can automate them so that you can operate your shutters with a remote control from the comfort of your couch. 

When the elements turn nasty you can roll down the shutters on the bad weather side, allowing you to stay on the veranda instead of having to move inside.  Close all your shutters when the rains come in, and the crowds can spill over from the lounge onto the patio with ease.  Open up all the shutters when the weather is good and you have a natural indoor/outdoor flow. 

Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium security shutters are a good choice as they roll up into a compact box that can be recessed into the wall.  Even if they’re retro-fitted and the shutter box exposed, they’re very neat and won’t detract from your lovely home.

Let the outdoors in with security screens

Trellidor Clear Guard screen doors are great for optimising your veranda space when the mob arrives.  They help control the sun’s heat when closed, with the added bonus of being able to see right through them so your view isn’t spoiled.  They cut the glare but allow in light, so you don’t swelter in the midday sun.

These mesh screens may not look like it, but they are actually security barriers, robust enough to ward off an intruder attack.  They do double duty keeping conditions on your veranda or inside your living area agreeable enough for entertaining as well as keeping everyone safe.  They also keep out pests like mosquitoes and monkeys that would otherwise make being on the veranda at certain times of the day unpleasant.

Trellidor Clear Guard door and window screens can be made to match your folding or sliding patio doors and stack neatly to the side when you don’t need them.

Spread outside with sliding security doors

A really simple solution to creating entertainment space is to fit retractable security gates to your veranda, livingroom and diningroom doors.  You can open up as many as you need to spread out onto the garden, pool deck or patio, particularly if you choose Trellidor Retractable Security gates as they are designed to take up as little space as possible when stacked to the side.

When the multitudes leave and life returns to normal, you’re left with security gates that you can leave closed and locked while you get on with everyday life.  Trellis style gates can function as both a security barrier and external door if they’re on your patio or other outdoor entertainment area.
