Noise pollution is a growing problem, especially in urban areas where traffic noise can be continuous. Even in more rural areas, you can be disturbed by machinery and animal noises. Loud noises can stop you from sleeping and also keep young children from getting their required amounts of rest during the day.
Installing additional insulation, double glazing and sealing gaps can all help to reduce noise. But roller shutters in Perth can be one of the biggest contributors to alleviating noise problems.
Do Roller Shutters Block Out Noise?
If you’re wondering ‘do roller shutters reduce noise?’, the answer is an emphatic ‘yes’. Roller shutters are made from a number of horizontal slats that roll up unobtrusively out of the way when open but cover a window or doorway completely when they’re closed. They therefore form a full barrier that keeps out noise to a significant degree.
The main question then becomes not only ‘do roller shutters block out noise’ but how much noise they can block out. This will vary with the materials useds. Nevertheless, any roller shutter should be capable of reducing noise by around 50% while a reduction of up to 50% should be possible with heavy-duty, insulated materials, which is a quite exceptional achievement.
Achieving these levels of noise reduction is dependent on the shutter being installed correctly. This includes sealing all the gaps around the shutter so that noise doesn’t leak through. If you insist on a high-quality shutter that’s professionally installed, you’ll also benefit from extra security and reduced energy costs since the aluminium roller shutter will keep hot air out in summer and retain warm air during winter. And, since noise reduction works both ways, you’ll be able to play loud music with the shutters closed without disturbing your neighbours.
