Roller shutters play a key role in Dynamic Insulation™ of windows as they have quite an impact on the overall heat transfer coefficient, U-value. Their performance depends partly of the composition and thickness of the roller shutters as well as the width of the air space.
To a lesser extent, they also allow for managing natural light: the amount of light varies according to the slots between each slat.
Roller shutter key features are also to secure openings and protect windows from bad weather conditions.
