It is important for homeowners to consider environmental sustainability when renovating or building. Insulation is an important aspect to address when considering energy efficiency, particularly window insulation.  

Western Red Cedar Shutters from OpenShutters are lightweight, plantation style shutters that naturally provide a high level of insulation: one inch is equivalent to a brick. Tests rated Western Red Cedar Shutters better at minimising heat transfer than solid plastic, hollow plastic, aluminium and timber blinds.  

Western Red Cedar Shutters are cut from solid pieces of timber to provide better durability and stability. They can be fitted inside windows and doors and can be custom-designed to fit specific openings and conform with existing design features. Western Red Cedar Shutters can also be painted or tinted to suit individual tastes.
