Energy Savings

Most people cover their windows from the inside with blinds, curtains, etc. However, this only partially shades the house. The sunlight hits the windows and heats them up, it then enters the room and heats up the shading devices, the windows and the space between them. These elements act like a heater and are constantly heating the home when exposed to the sun. Window roller shutters are the ultimate solution to this problem. Roller Shutters stop the heat energy before it even has a chance to reach your windows. Roller Shutters are made from high-quality aluminium and are injected with polyurethane which offer a thick wall of insulation and can keep out much of the outside heat. The Roller Shutters also create an air space between the shutters and the windows, creating an additional energy barrier.
