I'm a little confused. You have external roller shutters on awning type windows? How does that work - I mean how can you have the roller shutters closed but the awning window open?
In any case I'm really no fan of the roller shutters. No offence but I don't like the look or the price tag. I also feel it's somewhat of a security issue and I have these thoughts of getting locked inside a house and not being able to get out in case of emergency.
You still have the depth of the brick which is enough to have the windows open, obviously they don’t fully open with the shutters down.
I totally agree on the being locked inside problem, and yes they are not to everyone’s liking. All the rooms we have them installed are only a few meters from an external door, and there are only two of us living in the house, so the rooms are not occupied on a regular basis. Also the shutters are installed on the blind side and back of the house so they are not seen from the road in our case.
