Rollashield sentry bushfire roller shutters

Shane McGeorge - Tuesday, February 18, 2020

It is common knowledge that hot or burning embers entering the home during a bushfire is a major factor in the ignition of the building itself. Our Rollashield sentry roller shutters have been credited with saving homes from burning to the ground when other surrounding properties were not so fortunate.

The sentry roller shutter has been extensively tested by the CSIRO under severe bushfire simulated conditions and proved to be able to withstand a maximum radiant heat exposure of 40 kw/m2 after 60 minutes. As no ignition or flaming was observed throughout the testing, the sentry roller shutter has received a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 40.

Sentry roller shutters are designed with the sentry fireshield extruded slat profile, making them ideal for residential or commercial use when added strength and security is required. When assembled with our extended guides, the roller shutter can span to a maximum of 4600mm in width.

Along with bushfire protection, there are many additional benefits to installing our roller shutters on your windows and doors. Rollashield shutters not only offer protection and peace of mind, they provide a more comfortable and eco-friendly environment. Lightweight yet extremely strong the shutter consists of an aluminium skin injected with a polyurethane foam for added strength and insulation qualities.

Increases security + privacy – Window shutters present an immediate visible deterrent, protecting your home against burglary and vandalism. They offer you privacy during both day and night. You control the extent by simply adjusting the shutter to suit your needs. When fully open the shutter is completely out of sight leaving you unrestricted views through your window.

Increases insulation – Shutters offer thermal insulation properties that reduce the effects of summer heat as well as retaining the warmth during the colder winter months.

Energy cost savings - The cost of heating and cooling your home is substantially reduced all year round making this product an ideal investment for the future. Rollashield shutters can save up to 40% energy savings on heating and cooling costs.

Noise + light control - University tests have proven that roller shutters have a positive effect in the reduction of noise levels from outside of the home. Light and ventilation can be adjusted to create a pleasant, softly lit atmosphere.

Manufactured right here in Australia, our roller shutters are available in several painted coatings that are long lasting and fade resistant under the most demanding conditions.

We offer several operating options available which allow you to control your roller shutters with the touch of a button from inside your home. Our e-series drive system is an affordable motorised control system that is battery operated and therefore not reliant on mains power. Solar charging is also available.
