Aluminium security shutters

Granville’s Aluminium Security Shutters offer a stylish and aesthetically pleasing window treatment without compromising on your security needs. The shutters are available in a variety of colours and wood effect finishes. Just like all other materials in the Granville range, these shutters are custom made and tailored to meet your requirements. Each and every security window or door is unique – custom-made to fit exactly and securely. These robust aluminium security shutters are designed to add an additional layer of security to your home or business.

Think of these designs as a stylish security blanket for your home or work place, without having to install those heavy traditional security grilles, big roller shutters or burglar bars. Whilst these options are a clear visual deterrent, they aren’t the ideal way forward. Partly because style almost always takes a back seat. They often block out the light and look severe and industrial.

Our white aluminium security shutters include a hidden tilt rod. This means you can move the louvres by hand rather than by pushing a rod up and down. This then creates a sleek, modern design with elegant contours and clean lines.

Once they are locked, the louvres still work as before but the shutter panels cannot be opened. This means it’s possible to leave your windows open at night, or if you have a more vulnerable window or room in your property because this outer layer of protection is now acting as a barrier to your property.

Granville offers the ideal balance between peace of mind and elegance. White aluminium security shutters provide a robust additional layer of protection to your home or office.

Lower your energy consumption

1. Shutdown your computer

Computers are some of the biggest energy users in office buildings. So, turn your monitor off at night and ditch your screensavers – most screens do not need these nowadays anyway! Today’s computers can actually be turned on and off over 40,000 times.

2. Choose the right light

LED bulbs are the most energy efficient lighting option on the market today. LED bulbs use 75% less electricity than old-fashioned incandescent bulbs. The also include no mercury in their manufacture and last about 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs (DoE). Granville can install energy-saving solutions throughout your home and garden.

3. Eliminate vampire power: unplug idle electronics.

Devices like televisions, microwaves, scanners, and printers use standby power, even when they are off. Some chargers continue to pull small amounts of energy, even when plugged in (a good judge of this is if a charger feels warm to the touch). To highlight this energy waste, in the US, the total electricity consumed by its idle electronics equals the total annual output of 12 power plants (EPA).

4. Use a power strip to reduce your plug load.

To avoid paying for this “vampire power,” use a power strip to turn all devices off at once. Flipping the switch on your power strip has the same effect as unplugging each socket from the wall, preventing phantom energy loss.

5. Turn off the lights

Just one switch and you’re done!

 

Revolutionise your outside space!

Gardening is one of those things that we often look at as a chore. In actual fact, it can be a great way to improve our physical and mental health & wellbeing. One really good top tip to consider is that although winter might not be the considered or usual season in which to consider any garden renovations, taking the plunge at this time of year and by revolutionising your outdoor area in the colder months, you could get your garden ready in time for those balmy summer days!

Granville is ready for you during this or any time of the year to pitch in or help you to develop certain areas such as paths, fences, outside building work and everything else you can imaging – from water features to summer houses! Having it all ready before Summer means you’ll soon be feeling the benefit! Firing up the barbecue, pottering about with the roses, chilling out with a gripping book and a glass of Prosecco in your garden hammock – inviting your pals round for a spot of alfresco dining – what could be better?

Take a look at these great ideas that will help give your garden a makeover ready for the summer.

Clear Your Clutter

You can make your garden feel larger by simply clearing out the clutter. By excavating the old tree stumps, weeds and rockery, sweeping the leaves, jet-washing the path or getting rid of that near-derelict shed – you garden immediately begins to look bigger and better defined. Make light work of your garden clearing project though Granville’s support and project work – have a blank canvas on which to create your brand new garden.

Zones

Think about what you could use your front or back garden for. It pays to create zones within your outdoor spaces to add interest to your garden. BBQ areas, shaded seating spots, decked dining areas, lounging reclining, sunbed spots – sheltered from the wind, accessible to the afternoon sun.

Consider creating a large patio area perfect for a spot of outdoor dining. Here, you can cook up a storm in the kitchen and have your nearest and dearest around for foodie lunches and soirees, If you adore the horticultural aspect of gardening, you could set up a gerbera garden, a wildflower area, a veggie patch or even a greenhouse. If a more sculptural and artistic area appeals, you could make plans for a water feature or an ornamental garden. Whatever your end finish, Granville will help bring that into reality.

Lighting

One way to create a relaxing ambience is with subtle and appealing lighting design. By installing a range of solar-powered lighting at foot level, or by placing fairy lights around tree trunks and by adding lighting into water features, you can create a tranquil and unique garden that looks as beautiful in the moonlight as it does in the sunshine.

Trees

Scientific studies have actually suggested that people who live near trees suffer less from depression and anxiety-based disorders than those who don’t. So, if you fancy a garden that benefits your emotional health and well being as well as being a fun and usable outdoor space, you could consider planting a tree or two. Not only  does this positively contribute to the environment, it also creates a more stress-free environment.

So, clear out your clutter and revolutionise your outdoor area. Create your dream garden that you can enjoy all year round. You’ll also find yourself feeling better emotionally, mentally and physically from all the hard work you’ve put in. Bring in Granville to develop those complicated building-based areas, electrical and plumbing aspects and ensure you have a landscape and set of garden zones that are safe, guaranteed to deliver pleasure for many years to come and do exactly what you want from them!

Benefit your health! From burning all those calories to improving your body’s dexterity, gardening can bring about a whole host of health benefits!
