There are two main types of slat to choose from, foamed filled insulated and extruded aluminium:

How much does a domestic security shutter cost?
Prices vary between domestic roller shutter products, although the difference is not as significant as with some of our other products. For example, a 1.6m wide by 1.6m high shutter electrically operated shutter in a standard colour will cost between £700 and £1,000 dependent on the model. Key factors which impact the cost are:
- Operation. Many consumers want to control shutters via remote control which costs around an additional £200. This cost can increase further if you are looking for group control options or integration into a new or existing home automation system.
- Finish. Most domestic security shutters have a choice of standard colours. If a standard colour does not suit your requirements many can be powder coated for an additional cost of £50 per m².
