At the Plantation Shutters manufacturing facility in the Western Cape, the engineers understand that security shutters must provide an uncompromising level of security for any home, while still being aesthetically beautiful.
Not only does the
company manufacture its own
shutters, which allows for zero waiting time for imports, but it’s developed
a unique metal composite screw
with the extraordinary tensile strength of over 1.4 tons to ensure its flagship security shutters don’t pop
out of their frames when placed under force or pressure.
This leading security technology was recently put to the test in the Jules Verne climatic wind tunnel in France at the Scientific and Technical Centre for Building, where experts determined exactly how sturdy these shutters are. The result? Plantation Security Shutters can withstand a cyclone – good news for South Africans! While the famous Cape Doctor never reaches these speeds, it’s nice to know the shutters can resist winds or pressure of over 250km/h. This clearly has a significant impact on testing the shutter’s security level.
Plantation Security Shutters are strong and secure,
with a reinforced frame and the most advanced locking system on the market – a
secure three- to five-pin
locking cylinder. The security shutters are suitable for all interior and
exterior applications, especially where security is of the utmost importance. It’s
the most beautiful way to secure one’s home and provide complete peace of mind.
The shutters are fully customisable with over 10 unique frames, allowing for many mounting options, and they come with a 10- to 12-year guarantee with excellent and efficient after-sales service – another benefit of a local company that manufactures everything from scratch.
There’s a lead time of only 21 working days from
order to installation, and a broad
range of customised colour options. While the emphasis is placed on strength and
security, Plantation Security Shutters are beautiful and elegant, which makes
them a top choice for architects and interior designers throughout South Africa.
