Protection against wind and weather, safety and privacy as well as improved energy efficiency for your home.

Aluminium roller shutters

High-quality roller shutters - safe, durable and low-maintenance

Roller shutters have to meet the highest standards. They should shield you from wind, weather and noise, provide privacy, protect against burglars and be smart home compatible. They can also help you to save energy. Whether you are interested in aluminium roller shutters for a new building or for retrofitting, we'll show you what you should consider when you make your selection.

What makes heroal aluminium shutters stand out?

Real "energy savers"

In winter, heroal roller shutters contribute to thermal insulation; in summer, they provide cool rooms and a pleasant indoor climate. In combination with heroal windows, the heat loss at night can be reduced by up to 44%. Since aluminium and stainless steel shutters by heroal are exceptionally durable, they meet all the criteria for sustainable and energy-efficient construction.

Maximum flexibility

Whether you are doing renovations or building a new house, the comprehensive RAL colour palette and the range of surface options allows heroal aluminium and stainless steel shutters to match with any façade. They are available in individual sizes for different opening widths and offer small winding diameters. This ensures convenient installation and an attractive appearance.

Security and comfort

heroal shutters protect not only against wind and weather, but also against burglary. They are available up to resistance class RC 3, and in combination with heroal safety windows they can even reach RC 4. This makes it almost impossible for burglars to enter your home unnoticed. Thanks to smart home integration, you can conveniently operate your aluminium shutters even when you are away from home.

  • Are heroal roller shutters suited for both new buildings and renovation?

    Roller shutters are real all-rounders, and therefore should be included in any architect’s plan for a newbuild right away. Both in-wall roller shutters installed in the brickwork as well as top-mounted roller shutters, which are fixed onto the window first and then installed into the window opening as one unit, are suited for newbuilds. Winding up in their box in the brickwork, these roller shutters become invisible when they are fully lifted.

    The installation of roller shutters at a later date, e.g. within the scope of a modernisation of a building, is an investment that pays off. Roller shutters not only increase the energy efficiency of a house, they also increase burglary protection. Surface-mounted roller shutters installed in front of the window are especially suited for a retrofit. With their range of available box shapes and design options, they create a harmonious look and perfectly match your house.

  • Can heroal roller shutters be made to measure?

    heroal roller shutters are customised according to your individual requirements. Our competent specialist partners take accurate measurements on-site, ensuring a custom-fit manufacture and installation of your roller shutters.
