Roller Shutters Can Help Defend Against The Winter Weather And Save On Bills
As the winter elements prevail across the UK, with winds rising and temperatur dropping, many will ask if there is anything extra that can be done to protect against the UK weather?
Whilst roller shutters are, in the first instance, installed as a security solution, they do also add extra protection against wind, rain and the harsher aspects of the winter elements. This protection can in turn lead to lower fuel usage, not to mention better insulated property for those inside. Westwood Security Shutters Ltd. offer a range of quality shutters, from galvanised steel shutters to twin skin insulated shutters which guarantee extra heat retention. According to thegreenage.co.uk, about 35% of the heat will escape through the walls and through gaps, in and around windows and doors . Therefore, If you can slow this movement of heat from inside the house, through the thermal envelope, to the external environment, you can dramatically reduce your energy bills. Westwood Security Shutters Ltd. products are manufactured to fit any size opening and are suitable for both commercial and domestic use. In addition to protecting from the cold, they also offer heat protection from the sun during the summer if fitted on windows. If a more flexible solution is required, we also supply and fit high speed- or rapid door- solutions. These ensure that larger work areas are not permanently exposed to the elements but are protected by automated, light-weight and quick lifting doors to protect the appropriate spaces. High speed doors come in various sizes: smaller self repairing doors, standard rolling doors and for the larger areas, folding horizontal doors. Al our products carry a 12 month parts and labour guarantee. Please contact Pam Owen on for further information.
