Having window shutters to blockout noise is a really good option when compared to most other blind types.
Window shutters are known to have great sound proofing qualities, with thick durable louvres which will both reflect and absorb noise entering your home, and with tightly fitted frames around your shutters creating a great seal to reduce both noise and light.
There are a number of different shutter styles to consider but the best style window shutters to blockout noise is a solid shutter.
The reason this style is the best for noise reduction is the fact the shutter panels are solid and not made up of separate louvres meaning less gaps for the noise to enter your home.
If blocking out as much noise as possible is something that is really important then there is another option for your shutters that will make a huge difference.
And when it comes to window shutters to blockout noise it doesn’t get any better than our quiet shutter system.
This system combines the noise reduction of a shutter with the added benefit of the best noise reducing blind on the market.
This shutter system has a special frame with an extra slot that allows us to fit a honeycomb blind behind the shutter.
Your shutter will look exactly the same from the front as the blind is hidden behind and when you need the extra noise reduction maybe a bed time then simply open your shutter pull the blind down and close the shutter again.
The honeycomb blind works in a similar way to your double glazing by trapping a layer of air inside the fabric which has a huge effect on reducing the noise (it also makes your shutters almost totally blackout, perfect for bedrooms).
