There are many types of shading elements available nowadays. Believe us, we know; shading is our bread and butter. Despite all the modern and innovative types of shading elements, some people still decide on classic roller shutters. Do you want to know why?
1. ENERGY SAVINGS
Indeed, roller shutters can help you reduce energy losses from heating during the cold part of the year. An air barrier is formed between the shutters (when closed) and the window, which is an excellent insulator and reduces heat loss. The roller shutter shield itself also provides additional insulation, since it is filled with insulating foam.
2. A PLEASANT STAY IN THE ROOM, INCLUDING IN THE SUMMER
In the same way that they retain heat inside in the winter, they also help keep it outside in the summer. Again, they act as additional insulation, which prevents the penetration of sunlight and heat into the room. This improves wellbeing in the room without using any air conditioners or other cooling devices.
3. REDUCED NOISE
Not only thermal protection is provided, of course, but also soundproofing. This has two advantages. Firstly, there is less noise coming from the outside. This will help you go to bed in the evenings or let you sleep in, even with noisy neighbours. Secondly, of course, the insulation works both ways. Closing the roller shutters reduces the possibility of neighbours or passers-by listening in on your private conversations.
4. PROTECTION AGAINST BURGLARY
Granted, blinds are not an impenetrable defence against intruders, but they certainly make their work more difficult. It is very important that any intruders are deterred before even attempting a break-in. If anyone tried to forcibly remove them from the window, they would cause enough noise to act almost like an alarm for the neighbours and for yourself. In any case, they bring an additional sense of safety. And this in itself can greatly contribute to the quality of the stay in your home.
