An Elegant Alternative to Burglar Bars

Shutterway’s elegant window security solution consists of custom made units in a fixed louvre design, giving the appearance of blinds or shutters, with much neater aesthetics than standard burglar bars. These units provide solid security, while at the same time not detracting from your home’s aesthetics. These stylish louvered burglar bars are made in their own frame which is then firmly fixed into the interior reveal. Fixing positions are all concealed within the frame, and a small space is left below the frame to ensure it is easy to clean one’s sills.

For optimum window security, we install single or multiple vertical rods for added strength on wider span windows. The Louvre-style burglar bars are non-adjustable and do not provide screening. However, they can be used in conjunction with blinds or curtains.

Shutterway Configurations

While the stylish burglar bars are generally fixtures, opening sections are also available if required. If an opening section is needed, such as an emergency exit, we  can manufacture with a sliding or hinged panel function on a portion of the window.
If an entire window needs opening panels, we can install double opening or bi-fold solutions:
  • Double opening: one panel hinging left, one panel hinging right
  • Bi-fold: two panels both hinging in the same direction, either both to left, or both to right.


We have different configurations available to suit your window openings.

Our stylish burglar bars are made of corrosion protected steel, and all workmanship carries a three year guarantee. The powder coated finish is available in a wide range of colours to match existing window frames or your décor requirements. These burglar bars are a breeze to clean with no dirt collecting recesses.
