Roller shutters can significantly improve the thermal inertia of a building. In winter, the layer of air between the glass and the lowered roller shutter armor (the so-called airbag) acts as an insulator and provides much better protection against heat loss. This has a significant effect on reducing heating costs – savings of up to 40% can be achieved. In summer, lowering the Roller shutters in rooms exposed to strong sunlight prevents them from overheating. And that solves the issue of cooling them to a comfortable temperature, which also allows for real savings.
Talking about building located in areas with heavy traffic, such as railway stations, busy streets, airports. Noise protection becomes extremely important. Properly installed roller shutters can reduce the level of noise entering the interior by as much as a dozen decibels.
