Shutters vs. Screens: Which One Do You Choose?

Roller Shutters: Complete Blackout and Security

Roller shutters are ideal for upper floors as they provide complete blackout, keeping bedrooms dark even in early daylight. This not only keeps the room cooler, but also ensures a safe environment due to their burglar-resistant properties, such as the anti-lift springs, which make lifting from outside difficult.

In addition to the sun protection function, roller shutters retain the heat in the house. In summer it can offer up to a 6 degree temperature difference compared to the outside temperature. It is of course also possible to place this on the ground floor for safety reasons.

Screens: Preservation of View and Working Comfort

Screens are more often chosen for the ground floors because they keep sunlight out without obstructing the view. This creates an open feeling and prevents annoying glare on screens, which is especially useful when working from home. Although they provide some insulation, they are not at the same level as roller shutters.

For example, do you have an office or do you regularly work in the room during the day? Then a screen may be a better solution for you.

Additional Options for Customization

In general, screens are a cheaper option compared to roller shutters.
