Introducing Flutter Shutter

Brought to you by Flutter Shutter Ltd™

WHAT IS FLUTTER SHUTTER™?

Our energy-efficient blinds are unlike any other window feature on the current market today. Flutter Shutter™ incorporates a clear thermal material, made from recyclable plastics, which sits directly behind the shutter and acts as a parallel to secondary 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”

OUR REVIEWS

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”.

“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”.
