As a security barrier manufacturer, we are only too aware of the social issues that plague our country, resulting in inequality and ultimately in crime.

We believe that South Africa is a beautiful country that has so much going for it, and as a company we want to be a part of positive solutions, with a “proudly South African” outlook.

Internally, we do our best to upskill staff, as well as impart social ethics of equal respect for each other, our communities, and the environment. We hope that these ethics are carried by the diverse team that work at Shutterway, and that they in turn pass on good morals and ethics as pillars in their own communities.

Externally, we are very proud to be involved with The Life Matters Foundation, an early stage education intervention programme that assists foundation phase learners that are falling behind in their classes. They run volunteer assisted literacy, numeracy and life skills programmes in several disadvantaged schools in the cape flats. Their important work assists the education department in keeping learners in schools and off the streets. Shutterway has embraced transactional giving as part of our company ethos. For every panel we produce, a Rand value is ascribed to The Life Matters Foundation. In this way, the more we produce, the more we are able to have an impact on the foundation, and as a customer you can know that a portion of your order goes to assisting the more vulnerable members of our society.
