Blockout roller shutters provide extreme insulation in two main forms.
The first form is sound insulation. Tests have shown the polyurethane foam core in Blockout’s roll-formed aluminium shutter design can provide noise reductions of up to 50% (subject to the building’s construction). This is ideal for buildings on main thoroughfares, and industrial and large educational sites.
The second form is temperature insulation. The shutter’s thermal benefits are achieved by an air pocket formed between the shutter and the glass, with proven reduction in heat gain by up to 90% in summer and heat loss prevention of up to 70% in winter. This benefit is ideal for all residential, commercial, retail and industrial buildings.
