Night shutter interior window - EnergyPlus

Hi all,

Is there any way to model a night shutter in an interior window in E+?

I'm modelling an appartment with a passive wintergarden attached to its facade. The separating window (green in the image) has some thick curtains to reduce the heat loss during winter nights. As I tried to add them as a shading device in E+, it complains that interior windows cannot have shading.

Does someone know a workaround this issue?

Thanks in advance
