As the winter weather rolls in, you may start to think about how you can help protect your home from that weather. While roller shutters, for both residential and commercial applications, have traditionally been used as a security measure, they can also protect your buildings from the elements.
Jans Awnings carries security roller shutters by two of the most trusted names in the industry: Talius BC and Kimbel. With a five-year warranty direct from the manufacturer on the products, these roller shutters are of the highest quality, yet remarkably affordable, particularly when you consider what they can save you in the long run.
Because a home or building’s windows and doors are the weakest link in insulation, they’re responsible for 25 per cent of heat loss and 80 per cent of sunlight absorption. Think about how much that is adding to your energy bills – an amount that can be reduced by up to 30 per cent with the installation of roller shutters.
Not-to-mention the fact that roller shutters can protect your home or business from burglary, accidents and severe weather conditions.
Easy to operate from the inside or even remotely with a smart phone, these shutters are the best and easiest way to not only protect your property, but also add insulation in the winter and reduce the heat in the summer. As an added bonus, the shutters carried at Jans Awnings add a decorative element to your home or business without looking cumbersome or unattractive.
Available in a variety of sizes, the worry-free controls and motors can even offer thermal sensors that lower your shutters in the event of a storm, during the heat of the day, as well as time of day controls for complete customization.
It’s these features that Joanne Jans of Jans Awnings says helped a recent National Research Council of Canada study conclude that roller shutters help reduce a window’s U-factor by up to 40 per cent. She goes on to explain that an insulated shutter also has a resistance of two to three times that of a window – great for heat loss and protection.
Of course with Jans Awnings the selection process is simple. One of their experts will visit your home or business for a consultation and within weeks your shutters will be delivered and installed.
