French term or phrase: volet type persienne IDF
List of things for project to extend detached house in a Département in the Parisian suburbs.

"Paire de volet bois type persienne IDF 1000x2150mm"

volet type persienne I translate as "louvred shutter". I'm suspecting that IDF could potentially stand for "Ile-de-France". Are the shutters in Ile-de-France characteristic in some way that differentiates them from those in other parts of France?
