ONYX Shutters

Our solid wood material has a low transfer rate of heat which allows the wood to be an excellent source to reduce unwanted temperatures anywhere in the house. The constant circulation of air causes convection which makes insulation from heat continuous. This easily and effectively blocks out all air that comes between your shutters and windows and is guaranteed to keep your home cool at all times.

Unable to fully and efficiently block all of the hot air that comes between the drop cloth curtains and windows.

Thermal conductivity that comes from fabric material is higher that what comes from wood material.

Circulation of air through the process of heat is consistent. Wood shutters are able to effectively block out the air that comes between the shutter and window. 

The ability to block heat is not as great as that from the wood shutters.

Unable to fully and effectively block out the air that comes between the shades and window.

Thermal Radiation

Solid wood is impenetrable so that there is absolutely no radiation from heat that will be able to come into the room, keeping your home cool.

Depending on the choice of fabric and shading, drop cloth curtains may not be able to fully cut off heat radiation, even with the help of UV preventing materials.
