Roller shutters in winter time
In winter, we pay more attention to make our home warmer, putting the homestead budget under strain. Outdoor roller shutters are both economical and convenient solution.
Winters are notorious for indoor draughts. Apart from door, roof and wall leakages, windows are to blame for uncontrolled heat loss – even up to 25%.It is for this reason that it is worthwhile to invest in thermoinsulated windows in order to avoid high bills for heating and ensure proper temperature inside. Additional protection is provided by outdoor roller shutters, attached from the outside. The space between the window and the dropped down roller shutter ensuresthermal insulation.
Outdoor roller shutters create a practical system that may be deployed in several configurations. In inclement weather, it provides a shield against rain, snow or wind. In summer, it offers excellent protection against excessive daylight and overheating of interior spaces. The shutters have the additional feature of being soundproof and they damp noise. However, of greatest importance is their thermal insulation, yielded by a special profile structure.
Roller shutters are durable and resistant to abrasion by virtue of the materials used. High quality aluminium sheet roller shutters show the best performance – says ZdzisławMorzyński, Head of the Roller System Sales Department at Aluprof. – Special structures such as the adaptive SKP system developed by ALUPROF have been created to reduce heating costs in winter. High thermal insulation is ensured by the polyurethane foam filling inside the roller profiles – explains the expert at Aluprof.
Roller shutters are wound inside an aluminium box mounted on the wall or in the reveal.Both elements – the blinds and the box are a functional and aesthetic feature of the building. They are available in a broad range of colours to match window and façade. The roller shutters are controlled manually or via an electric drive coupled to a control system. Another unarguable asset is the anti-burglary protection for the house as well as a barrier averting the curious gaze of neighbours. All of the said features contribute to the residents’ full comfort.
