If you need a security roller shutter that's strong, cost-effective and versatile, Viewguard roller shutters are an excellent choice. With a tried and tested design, the Viewguard is one of our strongest and most cost effective security roller shutters.

We use a strong, perforated lath for our Viewguard roller shutters. The multitude of small (6mm), round holes in the shutter's curtain material creates a semi-transparent effect when light shines on the roller shutter from one side. These holes also allow air to pass through the roller shutter curtain.

Description Viewguard shutters

HVP's Viewguard is a great roller shutter for shop fronts that need a higher level of security. Made from curved lath they are formidable barriers that deter even the more determined attacker.

As opposed to the completely solid Screenguard roller shutter, the Viewguard has perforated lath that allows light to pass through. With the lights left on at night, the shutter becomes transparent in appearance, which makes the Viewguard an ideal choice for window displays.

Viewguard roller shutters are an excellent choice for retail premises, but are equally effective in a wide range of other applications.

Versatile roller security shutters

Viewguard roller security shutters are very versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications. The Viewguard works very well as a roller shutter for securing shop fronts, offices and school buildings. Also, because of their excellent balance between cost and strength this roller shutter is a good choice for securing train stations, stadiums and kiosks. Other suitable applications for these security roller shutters are airports, medical practices and information centres.
