1.1.8 Improve insulation of roller shutter box


It is important to check heat losses from the shutter box because often it is not isolated and it is a significant point of air leakage. The solution consists in installing roller shutter box insulation.


  • It allows about 5 to 10% of energy savings depending on climate conditions

  • The internal space is kept, not affecting the useful surfaces

  • Reduce heat losses

  • The installation of insulation is a simple, fast and inexpensive intervention, where there is sufficient space (at least 2 cm)


  • The access to the roller shutter boxes may be difficult

Economic assessment

Low investment, around 9 €/m2
