European rolling shutters – Passive Solar
Passive solar use is another application of our shutters. In passive solar design windows, walls and floors form a system to collect, store and distribute solar energy. Our shutters work as a switch to that design. After the sun’s solar energy has entered through our windows and become stored in the walls and floors (heat sink) our shutters can be lowered as a way to retain the released energy inside the building at night.
With the proper design, we can incorporate your shutter into the wall during the window and door installation. As an alternative, we have access to one of the smallest shutter boxes on the market and offer curved, bevelled and square housings to properly suit your home’s architecture.
