Keep the Light and Heat Out

Colonial Internal Shutters are an attractive method of insulation, with the ability to prevent heat loss in winter or heat gain in summer whilst still allowing good airflow, light control and an unrestricted view. Internal Timber Shutters enable you to have your new shutters partially open and the window open, allowing for fresh breeze without prying eyes or glaring sunlight.

Perfect for privacy, these shutters can also be used in conjunction with other window treatments from the Rian’s range.
