Vision Guard sliding folding shutter

A tough, open style shutter that provides a high level of security while keeping a sense of open space.

General desciption

The Vision Guard sliding folding shutter is similar in look and feel to the Classic Chainlink. But where the Classic Chainlink has a curtain of rods and plates, the Vision Guard curtain consists of rigid aluminium panels. This provides a similar level of openness with an increased level of security. And where the Classic Chainlink only comes in an anodised natural finish, the Vision Guard is available in virtually any colour.

  • Excellent airflow and visibility
  • Increased level of security
  • Available in any colour
