Installed on the outside of windows, Sound Shade and Shutter Rollshutters by Talius are innovative, energy efficient products proven to enhance the quality of your indoor environment by improving the thermal comfort conditions and reducing the risk of moisture condensation on window interior surfaces.
Sound Shade and Shutter Rollshutters by Talius also protect the outdoor environment by reducing the environmental carbon footprint of your home and your dependency on non-renewable energy sources.
Sound Shade and Shutter Rollshutters by Talius are an effective means to reduce solar overheating in summer and heat losses through windows in winter. Installed on the outside of your windows, rollshutters are insulated to absorb heat and cold, and will reduce your costly energy bills. Easily operated from the inside of the home and completely retractable, rollshutters are the informed choice for experiencing your home in style while reducing your environmental carbon footprint.
According to a recent study by the National Research Council of Canada (NRCAN), when used with conventional windows of old houses, rollshutters may reduce the window's U-factor by up to 40%.
When closed during the winter, rollshutters significantly reduce the risk of moisture condensation on the interior surfaces of both conventional and high performance windows.
In the summer, Sound Shade and Shutter Rollshutters by Talius can combat inefficiency by stopping the heat and glare of the sun before it reaches the windows, thereby significantly reducing solar heat gain to keep you cool and comfortable and reduce expensive air conditioning costs. Rollshutters reduce the daily energy use of air conditioning units by about 45% compared to homes without rollshutters (NRCAN, 2009)
Sound Shade and Shutter Rollshutters by Talius were selected by the National Research Council of Canada for a comprehensive study on the energy efficiency of exterior solar shading versus interior solar shading. The study concluded that these products are the most efficient at reducing heating and cooling energy use, the on-peak cooling power demand, and the moisture condensation on the interior surfaces of windows in your home.
