Wooden interior shutters
Wooden interior shutters are installed on the window sash, providing shading and thermal insulation. They are a lighter and cheaper alternative to standard wooden shutters.
Wooden interior shutters can be found in traditional residences, both in mountain or island villages. Their main advantage is the fact that they can be operated from the inside, without the need to open windows (as in case of normal exterior shutters). Therefore, it is an ideal solution in areas with very low temperatures or intense wind.
