These products are fairly ubiquitous in Europe where they are clearly a middle-class accessible accessory.  However, they are seldom seen in the United States except as a security feature on the mansions of movies stars and the such.  They do have some increasing presence in the storm-prone states such as Florida where they function as hurricane-rated impact-resistant storm shutters.  We feel that they should have relevance anywhere for their ability to control light, heat, and noise, as well as their ability to add insulation value to any window or door. There are two models that have insulated plastic or aluminum slats, which come in a variety of colors.  They come in either manual operation or electric operation, with even automated sunlight-activated control.  A retrofit version is available if the building is already existing.
