Europe Shutters are designated to effectively prevent forcible entry and maximize energy efficiency. The shutters have interlocking slats and are self-locking to fully closed position. The slats also form an insulating blanket over doors and windows for maximum energy efficiency. Down in the summer, the shutter blocks out the hot sun and lock in the air conditioning, while in the winter, insulated slats lock the heat in and allow for partial lighting through special slotted slats, giving complete environmental control at all times. The shutters can be operated from inside of a home or business. There is no need for outside adjustments of shutters’ position in sudden storms or bad weather. Immediate activation gives instant protection whenever the need may arrive. Manual or electronic controls are available for effortless operation. A specially designed aluminum box that houses the rolled-up shutter is extremely low profile and very aesthetically pleasing.
