I think we need more context.
In the USA, "shuttered" often refers to covering the windows with a wooden protective device. More than anything, this is to protect the windows from storms. The practice is common in some areas and unheard of in others.
In Latin America, the "shutters" are of steel and are meant to keep out thieves. This is NOT common in the USA.
Do not confuse "shutters" with "venetian blinds" that are used INSIDE the building to regulate the amount of sunlight, privacy, etc. They have nothing to do with protecting the building or business from anything.
