WHAT IS FLUTTER SHUTTER™?
Our patented energy-efficient plantation shutter blinds are unlike any other window feature on the current market today. Flutter Shutter™ incorporates a clear thermal material, made from a combination of MDF covered in extruded polypropylene coating and 97% natural wood harvested from managed forests in New Zealand and Australia. Sitting directly behind the shutter, the innovative design acts as a parallel to triple glazing and draught-proofing.
This new forward-thinking innovation cuts out the need for extracting and replacing old, existing windows, thus preventing waste and upheaval for the tenant or owner. It is also a perfect solution for listed buildings and properties in conservation areas.
The combination of the transparent material and shutter means that the end-user is saving energy and reducing bills whilst aesthetically regenerating the building/dwelling. The slats/louvres can remain open, allowing natural light flow whilst still insulating, making them the only energy measure/window feature to do this on the current market! The invisible roller will work constantly and goes completely unnoticed to the naked eye. The current energy crisis is weighing heavy on homes, businesses, and people alike. Flutter Shutter™ aims to alleviate a great deal of stress simply by being installed.
Our background has always centred around energy and improving quality of living. From our first-hand experience as Domestic Energy Assessors, a common issue with social housing is draught-proofing. It’s known that registered social landlords (RSL’s) have spent thousands of pounds on trying to reduce this problem in order to improve their EPC rating.
The standard has been set that every landlord needs to reach a certain level. Penalties will be incurred if these requirements are not met. Flutter Shutter™ significantly diminishes that issue. It’s a very high end, aesthetically pleasing feature. It’s also more environmentally friendly than ripping out and replacing windows, there’s less upheaval for the tenant, and interference is dramatically reduced. It helps to significantly shrink your carbon footprint and also means you do not have to replace your windows. This reduces landfills and has less of an impact on the fossil fuels needed to create new windows. The Council can then better spend their budget on other important areas.
