Bushfire-rated roller shutters
There are many types of roller shutters on the market, but bushfire-rated roller shutters can be a great asset for West Australian home or business owners, giving safety and peace of mind over your treasured belongings.
As increasing numbers of families are moving into rural areas, and housing development takes us further afield, the number of families living closer to bushland and forest areas increases. Consequently, the threat of bushfires is also on the increase, along with the need for home and business owners to take appropriate protection for their family and belongings.
A new Australian Bushfire Construction Standard AS3959–2009 details minimum standards for building and construction in bushfire areas. This standard is now mandatory here in Western Australia and many other Australian states.
When choosing a roller shutter supplier, don’t just think about the installation process. Consider the service and repair provisions for the future life of your shutters. After all, there’s no point installing shutters to increase your home’s safety if they’re not maintained correctly and within the Australian Construction Standards.
Guardian Doors supplies and installs bushfire-rated roller shutters throughout the Perth metropolitan area and greater area to the below standards. So if you’re considering investing in a bushfire-rated roller shutter for your premises, make sure your supplier adheres to be below the specifications.

Cyclone-rated roller shutters
Another specialised roller shutter is the cyclone-rated roller shutter. Perth residents have little need to protect against regular cyclone damage; however, our city is ranked third windiest city in the world, and depending on your location, your home or premises can take a beating from adverse weather at various times of the year. If your home or business is in an area defined as a wind tunnel, or if you’re lucky enough to have beautiful ocean views, you may want to consider upgrading to cyclone-rated roller shutters.
Guardian Doors supplies and installs cyclone-grade roller shutters throughout the Perth coastal metro area. Not only do these protect your home or business from the aftermath of a cyclone (in the rare instance that one may occur) but they provide a high level of protection against any adverse weather conditions we encounter here in Perth.
