What can designers do to help homeowners stay cool on really hot days? When designing for a renovation or building a new home it’s important to consider Louvretec external shutters to keep the house cool in the summer and warm in winter.
Exterior shutters work well as insulators too
Today’s new builds and renovations are not only getting bigger but so are windows, often to the point where they can take up an entire wall.
Windows and doors make up for a lot of the heat loss and heat gain that takes place in a home. Manage indoor environments by installing adjustable louvre shutters that will let homeowners set and control conditions — helping to keep homes cooler during hot days by controlling and directing the light into a room and allowing ventilation. During winter external shutters limit heat gain through windows and doors.
Not only are exterior shutters a good thermal insulator, but they also provide added security and privacy without making a room look cluttered — all while providing stylish aesthetics to a building.
Louvretec sun louvres can be motorised, hand operable or end or bracket fixed into place.
Open homes to louvre shutters
When designing for an outdoor entertainment space that is comfortable day and night, consider Louvretec outdoor sliding shutters. These are ideal for controlling sun, heat, privacy and shade and directing a welcome breeze with the louvre infills.
