We know that hot or burning embers entering the home during a bushfire are 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.


Sentry Roller Shutters.

The Sentry Roller Shutter has been extensively tested by the CSIRO under simulated severe bushfire conditions and has withstood 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 Shutters has received a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 40.


Sentry Roller Shutters are designed with the sentry fire shield 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.


Rollashield Shutters provide not only bushfire protection and peace of mind but also a more comfortable and eco-friendlier environment. Lightweight yet extremely strong, the Shutter consists of an aluminium skin injected with 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. You simply adjust the Shutter to suit your need for privacy during the day or night. When fully open the Shutter is completely out of sight leaving  unrestricted views through your window.

Increases insulation.

Shutters offer thermal insulation properties that reduce the effects of summer heat and retain the warmth during the colder winter months.


Energy cost savings.

Saving up to 40% on heating and cooling costs, Rollashield Shutters offer an ideal investment for the future.


Noise + light control.

University tests have demonstrated that Roller Shutters reduce noise levels from outside the home. Light and ventilation can also be adjusted to create a pleasant, softly lit atmosphere.


Manufactured 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 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 is not reliant on mains power. Solar charging is also available.
