If you haven't yet used a window shutter or are not quite sure how it differs from traditional window blinds, a Louvre shutter is a solid wooden frame with vertical slates and horizontal rails (top, centre and bottom). Within this frame are panels which are either fixed or operable – can be opened or closed. These panels are made from a variety of materials including aluminium, fabric, glass, timber (including bamboo).
Initially, a Louvre shutter was designed to protect castles from arrows fired at castles. The panels were slanted downwards so residents of the castle could look out but attackers of the castle could neither look inside nor fire arrows into the castle or palace. Overtime, this innovative design underwent changes.
Today the Louvre shutter panels are usually operable via a lever or cord or may even be motorised and remotely controlled. When shut, the panels almost completely prevent entry of light into the room. The panels can be shut or opened to various degrees thereby effectively controlling the amount of light entering the room. Because the panels are slanted, a partly opened Louvre shutter allows light to enter the room but not sunlight itself. The room therefore is lit up without the heat from the sun's rays. This helps keep the room relatively cool and helps you cut air conditioning costs. A partially open louvre shutter also prevents passers by and neighbours from looking into the house.
