Noise pollution isn’t the same as other types of pollution as there is no contaminant as such other than noises that interfere with regular noises and interferes with daily life. Causes of noise pollution can include heavy industry, vehicles (especially near busy roads) or entertainment noise.

With technology these days, very little is left to the imagination. But could you imagine a world where you could turn day into night at the touch of a button? Well, dream no more because electric shutters have recently become additions to many homes throughout the UK, and with their convenient and stylish nature, it’s easy to see why.
With our surroundings becoming more and more modernised every day, never again will you have to lift more than a finger to open or close your shutters. With the latest offerings in the world of windows, you can now simply sit back and relax while your shutters gradually close at the touch of a remote control.
In addition, electric window shutters offer many security benefits thanks to their strong and durable design which will also give you complete privacy. Their unique construction allows for silent operation which means they can be used during both day and night without causing any noise disturbances. The silent Perfect Tilt system is generated by a 9 volt battery powered motor in each single louvre together with the light receptor on the front side of the pane. The other louvre’s are driven by the tilt rod and each battery powered motor is operated to a maximum louvre height of 1 800mm.
These shutters can be used on all the windows in your home including conservatories. They can even be incorporated into special shaped shutters such as triangular apex windows. Furthermore, they will allow you to let in as much light into your room as you would like, with the option to control each shutter panel controlled individually as well as simultaneously.
Shutter Design is a family run Yorkshire business specialising in the complete service of shutters from supplying to installation. They have a high quality range of electric shutters available in a wide selection of stylish designs to provide you and your home with the ultimate comfort and luxury of remote controlled shutters.

Everyone wants to create a home that is beautiful to look at and comfortable to live in. This is one of the main reasons why over recent years traditional louvre shutters have become a popular design feature in modern homes by lending an historical luxuriousness to any room design.
Their functionality and flair also make them the ideal choice for renovation projects and can even help add to the resale value of a house. However, although there’s no doubt that louvered shutters are elegant to look at, what many people don’t know is that they also offer a variety of other benefits to homes around the world, both inside and out.
Here are some of the other unique advantages of opting for internal louvre shutters in your home;
They can help with insulation by keeping the heat in when it’s cold outside.
The exceptional design of louvre shutters give home owners control of how much light they let into their homes.
These types of shutters can also lend a hand when it comes to keeping outside noise to a minimum inside the house.
Wooden louvre shutters are more environmentally friendly than their synthetic material counterparts as they are made from natural products.
Because louvre shutters are available in so many various colours they can easily be used to enhance the appearance of any room design.
Like the internal version, external louvre shutters are the smarter option when it comes to the exterior of a house. Besides just adding a vintage feel, outdoor wooden louvre shutters have a reliable reputation for being long lasting and naturally durable against elements such as sun, wind and rain. Western red Cedar and Siberian Larch are two of the most popular choices of wood to be used for external shutters as they are extremely resistant to decay and require very little maintenance. Shutter Design is a family owned business with a combined 20 years experience in the design, cabinet making and window covering industry. The company is well-known throughout Yorkshire for their high quality range of louvre shutters which they can make to fit and professionally install.
