Introducing Flutter Shutter

Brought to you by Flutter Shutter Ltd™


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.

“Our mission is to develop aesthetically pleasing, low cost energy products that save on consumer bills and reduce carbon footprints”


“I can confirm that Flutter Shutter have consistently sought advice from Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority about the use of recycled materials in their new energy products and services. They have shown an unwavering commitment to ‘doing the right thing’ in terms of putting the environment at the forefront of their business model. I have been hugely impressed with the depth of the research and thinking Flutter Shutter are putting into their customer offer. The re-use of recycled materials is problematic. However, in the longer term it is also critical to UK’s economic future if it is to mitigate finite resource price and availability ‘shocks’. At a local level, Flutter Shutter are showing the way.”

Carl Beer - Chief Executive

“Flutter Shutter have been a valued client of ours and the partnership between them and the university and been excellent. They have come up with a truly innovative idea and it has been a pleasure to help them to move forward each step of the way.  LJMU have recently built 3 houses on their Byrom Street campus and these will act as the perfect testing facility for Flutter Shutter to carry out the next stage of their development – prototype testing. Whilst the proof of concept was previously carried out under stable conditions, the houses will provide a ‘real life’ scenario that will inevitably involve variable outside temperature and light.”

Paul Dickson - Project Manager

“As an organisation, we have had a long standing relationship with Flutter Shutter Ltd. My first interaction with Rechelle and Nadine were at a Low Carbon event where they were speakers. They were both fabulous speakers and quickly engaged the audience with their enthusiasm and passion. As the Faculty head of Operations for Engineering & Technology, I am constantly seeking out female role models that I can engage and work with. Rechelle and Nadine were exactly the people who can help us attract the next generation of female engineers. We are committed to attaining the Athena Swan Award and have spoken to Rechelle and Nadine about events that we will run together over the coming academic year. Rechelle and Nadine have an excellent way of engaging girls as they speak their language and they can instantly relate to them. We look forward to continuing to work with the Flutter Shutter in the coming years. Rechelle and Nadine are excellent ambassadors for women in engineering and they should be extremely proud of what they have achieved so far.”

Sara Rioux - Faculty head of Operations Engineering & Technology

“Since having the Flutter Shutter fitted we have seen a big difference in the temperatures in our bungalow.

Prior to having the Flutter Shutter fitted we would have to set the temperature to 24 to make the bungalow comfortable with the Flutter Shutter fitted we can now set the temperature to between 20 and 21 for the same comfort.

Flutter Shutter helps to reduce our electricity bill and also helps to keep out noise and are very modern and make a big difference to the appearance of our bungalow.”

Mr & Mrs Phillips, Livv Housing Group Customers

“Livv Housing Group is a Registered Social Housing provider based in the Liverpool City Region and have been in operation since 2002. Today, we have almost 13,000 homes for social and affordable rent.

We have been working with the team at Flutter Shutter since 2019 whilst the product was in its first stage of development. We undertook a product trial across five of our homes in 2021 that resulted in very positive feedback from our customers and provided the essential trial data required to enable the Building Research Establishment to determine the U-value for the product.

We have continued to work with the team to enable us to move forward with Flutter Shutter to be an approved feature to be selected in moving our homes to achieve our goals in energy improvement.

We are now planning the next phase of our programme for achieving EPC C and then on to Net Zero and can confirm that we will be using Flutter Shutter as part of that programme to achieve these objectives.

We will also continue to work with the team to promote the product wider across the social housing sector nationally, as we feel this can be of real benefit in reducing the impact of fuel poverty on social housing residents at a time when energy costs are unaffordable to many.”
