Shutter Up

The Shutter Up System

Patented Innovation for Protecting Void Properties

The Shutter Up system has been developed over several years to become a complete system for social landlords and local authorities to fit toughened polymer screens to void properties.

Shutter Up is the next generation of void property window and door protection replacing unsightly steel and wooden panels.

The Shutter Up System uses a unique locking mechanism that secures polymer screens to existing windows.

This is a very cost effective way to protect vacant properties and the Shutter Up System can be removed and is reusable for several years.

The unobtrusive Shutter Up mechanism is also easy to fit, does not affect the warranties of windows and doors and does not impair the aesthetics of the building.

Wansbeck Homes Case Study

The Shutter Up System was first used by Wansbeck Homes in 2008, who are now in their third successive year of using the system.

Using Shutter Up, Wansbeck Homes have achieved substantial cost savings on void property protection in comparison to the steel screens they rented previously. Other benefits were noted but a significant success has been on the Scotland Gate Housing Estate where in the past there were several long term voids. Since they have begun using the Shutter Up System, there is now a waiting list for this estate.
