Energy Efficiency

Blinds can help improve the Energy Efficiency of a home or office. By helping keep warm air in in Winter and cool air in during warmer months, Blinds can help in reducing energy usage and thereby reduce the effect that such energy consumption has on the environment. In addition, because less energy is being used, you benefit from reduced energy bills!

If it’s Shutters you’re after (BASW supplies Shutters in the London area only) ‘research has proven that installing internal Shutters can have a beneficial energy saving effect in your home with a 58% reduction on heat loss.’ (Date Source: Thermal performance of traditional windows. English Heritage and Glasgow Caledonian University). Shutters are very effective at blocking and absorbing solar heat, resulting in reduced energy consumption and lower heating bills.

Blinds and Shutters have sound absorption benefits. Window Blinds (to a degree) and certainly Shutters not only help improve the acoustics in a room (the Blind and / or Shutter absorbs sound within the room) but also help to reduce the level of noise from sounds coming from outside the room.

We mentioned the environment. Our Wooden Blinds and Real-Wood Shutters are made from non-endangered Basswood that has been sourced from managed forests. Our fabric blinds (such as Roller and Vertical Blinds) are made from fabrics that have been manufactured in accordance with environmental policies so that manufacturing has as little impact on the environment as possible. In addition: some of our supplier’s factories source their electricity from wind turbines; we don’t print if we don’t have to; we Re-use, Reduce and Recycle wherever possible; and we dispose of packaging and such-like in a responsible manner.
