Safety Window Covers for All Door Types

Shelter Shutters are security window shutters for school lockdowns that completely black out views into your classroom and immediately snap back into place after the emergency is over.

Although sometimes called security window shades or security window blinds, Shelter Shutters are the only lockdown window covers that operate like a shutter. They are made from fire-rated or non fire-rated corrugated vinyl, depending on your preference.

Although designed specifically for school lockdowns, our Shelter Shutters are also used in clinics, daycares, office buildings, churches and any other facility where safety is top priority.

How it Works

Made with corrugated vinyl and embedded magnets, our Shelter Shutters easily open by pulling on any edge along the length of the shutter where the “pull here” sticker is (top, middle or bottom) and folding it over. Once the emergency is over, simply pull along the same length of the shutter (top, middle or bottom) and fold it back to its original position. The entire process takes a few seconds.


ADA Certified

Most styles are ADA-Certified, making it easy for disabled staff or even a small child to operate. Made from fire-rated or non fire-rated materials, depending on your choice, our patented design is guaranteed to open and close effectively for several years.
