External Facade Roller Blinds
External facade roller blinds are often colloquially referred to as anti-burglary blinds. However, the anti-burglary properties depend on the version of the applied armor, the used guides, and additional protection against lifting. Although the most popular roller blinds provide limited protection against burglary, they effectively deter thieves. Research shows that the most important factor for a burglar’s success is the quick time required to overcome the obstacle, and a “naked” window is virtually no obstacle at all. Also, the necessity of making noise during a break-in exposes the thief to a quick police alert. Moreover, a thief cannot easily identify from the outside what type of roller blinds he will encounter (most external armors look the same), which serves as an additional psychological barrier.
