Open Shutters Western Red Cedar shutters to prevent heat loss


Research indicates that while windows account for approximately 8% of the total building envelope, they account for approximately 60% of unwanted heat loss in cooler months. This loss can be reduced by simply eliminating cold draughts from around the windows and doors and reducing the cold being transferred through the glass.

One cost effective solution, which does not involve major structural work, is to fit timber shutters on the inside of glassed areas. Open Shutters recommend a custom fitted Western Red Cedar Shutter with blades that rotate 180 degrees. Testing has demonstrated that Western Red Cedar Shutters reduce this heat transfer by up to 49% while custom fitting into the reveal will reduce draughts. This is a long term solution for your comfort and a long term solution for the environment.
