Summer is fast approaching, meaning warm nights and lots of outdoor entertaining. As Australians, we love nothing more than making the most of our alfresco areas whether it’s a small inner city courtyard, or a large entertainers paradise, and now is the perfect time to install roller shutters to make your alfresco area suitable for use in all summer weather conditions. At Nu Style Shutters, we are Perth’s experts in modern roller shutters, outdoor blinds and security doors and grills. Let’s look at how roller shutters can benefit your alfresco area.
They Create Shade and Shelter
While Australian summers are renowned for being hot and dry, summer can also bring heavy rain and even cyclones in some parts of the country. To ensure maximum use of your alfresco areas in any weather conditions, create shade and shelter from the elements with custom roller shutters. Light-filtering qualities diffuse light, reduce glare and help control solar heat gain to make any outdoor room a more comfortable environment.
- Block 80-90% of solar heat
- Reduce heat transfer and glare
- Keep patios and alfresco areas cooler
- Can be rolled up out of sight when not in use
Manufactured with precision components, roller shutters can help you maintain a comfortable temperature inside any outdoor room. As soon as you close your roller shutters, a highly insulating cushion of air forms between the window and the roller shutter curtain leaving your space significantly cooler than the air outside.
They Create a Quieter Environment
If you live on a busy road, you’ll appreciate the way that roller shutters insulate your alfresco area from noise pollution and external disturbances. Roller shutters can reduce the amount of street noise entering your space by approximately 10 decibels which is great for when you have guests over. Additionally, if you are planning lots of outdoor entertaining at night, closing the shutters will prevent the noise from your party transferring to and disturbing your neighbours!
They Save Cooling Costs
By closing the roller shutters in your alfresco area during summer, you can look forward to pleasantly cool rooms inside as well as they will prevent heat transferring inside your home. This means you can cut down on your air conditioning which will significantly reduce your energy bills. Roller shutters can improve thermal insulation by roughly 45%!
