When deciding between a rolling shutter and a shutter, several factors must be considered. Shutter options include hinged or sliding types, with a frame surrounding their slats. Hinged shutters require free space to open while sliding shutters require free wall space for sliding. Rolling shutters, which come in top-mounted or outer box configurations, don't require extra space and are usually operated by a belt. Larger rolling shutters can also be fitted with an electric motor for convenience.
It's important to note that when it comes to safety, shutters have an advantage over rolling shutter boxes due to their more robust frame supporting the slats. However, other considerations, such as space availability and ease of operation, should also be taken into account when making a decision.
