Traditional built-in roller shutters are not energy-efficient. But does that mean that they must be ruled out? Not per se. Discover how Wilms’ built-in roller shutters can preserve the energy value of your home.
Surface-mounted roller shutters are a good choice for renovation projects. If your home’s external joinery is still in good shape, surface-mounted roller shutters are practical and budget-friendly and can be quickly installed.
Surface-mounted roller shutters are installed on the façade against the window. This system has advantages and disadvantages.
All in all, the choice for surface-mounted roller shutters is inspired by budget restraints or practical restraints when an existing house is renovated or altered.
As previously said, built-in roller shutters do not per se have to be ruled out. At least not if you go for the ShutterX®, Wilms’ airtight built-in roller shutter. In this system, we install the roller shutter in front of the window. The roller shutter box disappears behind the wall and the bottom lath disappears in the box.
In order to meet the energy performance standards, we have developed a composite profile which fully compensates the insulation which has been removed. The use of airtight films contributes to a perfectly airtight installation of the system.
In short, when you go for built-in roller shutters, the traditional ones are no option as they do not meet the current standards in terms of insulation. However, modern airtight built-in roller shutters do combine high energy performance with good looks.
