Aluminium Screens

These screens come in a variety of different styles and colours and can be made to fit in with the overall look of the building. These are especially effective in apartment building where it is necessary to shield your windows from buildings that overlook them. These screens are usually fixed.


Shutters are another alternative that can be placed on the exterior or interior of the building and they also provide a great deal of privacy.
