Energy Efficiency and Light Control Shutters

Whether it’s chilly or sizzling hot, having an energy-efficient property saves you heating and cooling costs. Your windows, entry doors, and garage doors account for large energy losses, which you can prevent through certain home improvements that provide insulation. One of the easiest and cost-effective ways to attain an energy-efficient home, store, or office with excellent light control is through exterior shading, particularly roll-up shutters. They provide exceptional functionality without sacrificing your overall style.

Why Shutters Provide Best Solution for Energy Efficiency

Excellent Insulation Properties

ROLLerUP provides shutters with excellent insulation properties, helping you regulate the heat entering your property through windows or doors. Our shutters are integrated with polyurethane, a fantastic thermal insulator, which keeps out excess heat during summer and prevents heat loss from your home or business during winter. When roller shutters are fully closed, they trap a layer of air between them and the windows or doors, which also plays a crucial part in reducing the energy required to cool or heat your property. Compared to other window treatments such as blinds and curtains, roller shutters provide substantial energy efficiency in summer, winter, and other seasons.

Light control

Shutters can help you control the amount of light that enters your home. This enables you to protect your furnishings from UV damage and control your home’s heating. When excess sunlight enters your home, it causes it to heat up, leading to higher energy bills. With shutters, you can regulate the amount of light entering your home or office, keeping it well-lit without heat accumulation.

Easy to Maintain and Operate

Compared to other window coverings, shutters are easy to maintain, thanks to their weather-resistant and durable material. When they get dusty, you can easily clean them by wiping their surface with a cloth or using a vacuum cleaner brush attachment. They’re also easy to operate, enabling you to effortlessly lower or retract them.

Benefits of Security Shutters

Lower Energy Bills

By installing shutters, you can significantly improve efficiency in your home or business throughout all seasons. According to a study done by National Research Council Canada, lowering your roller shutters during summer prevents the buildup of heat in your home, which reduces the daily electricity demand required for cooling by 50-80%. During winter, lowering the shutters creates a thermal barrier that cuts heat loss by approximately 19%, reducing the energy required for heating. Whichever season it is, shutters provide an energy-efficient way to keep your property at a comfortable temperature, lowering your energy bills by up roughly 40%.

Light Control

Too much natural light in your home? Lower the window and door shutters to minimize the light! This keeps you comfortable and prevents your residence from overheating due to excess sunlight. When you need some natural light to brighten up your home or office, keep the shutters fully or partially retracted. For those who work night shifts or movie lovers, our roller shutters can provide a total “blackout” or darkness, giving you the perfect space to relax as you watch or sleep.


Apart from providing energy efficiency and light control, shutters provide privacy from prying eyes and outside distractions. This is essential for homeowners as it keeps your family safe and creates a much-needed private space. For businesses, shutters keep your work private and make your clients comfortable as they receive their services.


Energy-efficient shutters protect your home and business in different ways. First, they provide a strong barrier against forced entry keeping your family and valuables safe. Secondly, they protect your furnishings and other products and materials at home, store, or office against damage by UV rays.
