Retail Vision Shutter

Vision shutters, like traditional shutters, offer effective protection for a wide range of applications – the difference being that vision shutters enable you to see through them. This makes them the ideal choice for retail stores, shopping malls and art galleries where being able to see attractive window displays out-of-hours can be good for business.

Security guards are also able to see right inside premises with vision shutters, increasing the level of security and making them suitable for an even wider range of applications – like airports, for example.

With a range of different vision options -including punched, punched/lexan glazed, perforated and tube and link – talk to A1 Shutters to select the right vision shutters for your project.
