Medium security commercial sites where see-through vision is a priority.


Tube and link shutters are an aesthetically way of providing light security to an aperture. Often used in bars and to close small serveries, they are sometimes used in 'higher end' shops as they are more expensive than other 'vision type' shutters. They can come in two types of arrangement – brick-bond and in-line (or standard) arrangement.
