Period Chiltern home requires subtle security

Traditional residential security shutters


Equilux security shutters, finished in a stylish anodised bronze, have been installed and working for many years in this beautiful period home in the Chilterns. Over 60 shutters were installed to all ground and first floor windows, including multi height bay windows.

Drawing from a great wealth of experience in the field, Charter Global Ltd. Were able to assist at the earliest stages of the project.

Consulting closely with the design team and stone mason, Charter Global Ltd. Provided an effective and long lasting solution to the problems posed by the considerable and varied opening heights and the horizontal stone mullions at mid level. The shutters are used daily to provide an excellent physical security for the family home, without detracting from its visual appearance.

They are extremely easy to operate, having been integrated by Charter Global Ltd. With a bespoke control system for individual or group control, along with a battery backup system in case of a power failure.

Product and technical information

The Equilux 180LS lintel shutter system incorporates a shutter within a structural lintel, providing an unobtrusive structurally integrated solution.

The lintel and cavity closer elements of the system are installed in the traditional manner at the time of build. The system addresses the usual issues of lintel design, such as structural loadbearing, cold bridging and damp proofing, but has the added benefit of acting as a security shutter when required. The shutter curtain is installed as a second-fix item via an internal maintenance access panel.

In the raised position, the shutter is completely concealed from view, retaining the clean lines of the opening. In the lowered position, the shutter ensures effective resistance against intruder attack. The absence of visible guide rails or boxes limits the potential for effective attack on the system.

Custom designs such as those for curved and arched windows are available, and aluminium finished to suit client requirements.
