Our Ultratech synthetic shutters are one of our most popular options due to their durability and flexability to be used in any space and application.
THE DURABILITY IS UNMATCHED Although hardwoods resist warping and weather damage, only synthetic shutters are completely able to withstand the long-term impact of moisture, heat, and termites. With synthetic shutters, each louver will stay ramrod straight as the years go by. This means that they will block out light and heat more effectively and open and close more easily over time; looking just as good as they did when you first installed them.
MAINTENANCE COULDN’T BE EASIER Synthetic shutters will not need to be repainted or re-stained. The beautiful finish is simply a part of the material. Additionally, cleaning your synthetic shutters is easy. Just about any cleaning material is safe to use without ruining the finish or compromising the material.
SYNTHETIC SHUTTERS ARE ECO-FRIENDLY Hardwood is a natural material, so at first glance, it may seem that wooden will make the least environmental impact. However, when you learn about the problems with deforestation for the sake of harvesting desirable hardwoods, synthetics become more appealing. Synthetics do not contribute to deforestation in any way, and to top it off, the material is recyclable, so it will not contribute to plastic waste as long as it is disposed of properly. Synthetic shutters are also very energy efficient. When closed, they block out the worst of the heat and cold, better than any other material. If you use your shutters properly, you will quickly see a welcome difference in your energy bills.
SYNTHETIC SHUTTERS GO PLACES OTHER SHUTTERS CAN’T Because all wood warps with moisture to a certain extent, some kinds of wooden shutters are not recommended for areas with high, frequent moisture. This includes above kitchen sinks, in bathrooms and around spa or pool areas. Instead, synthetic shutters provide a hardy alternative. Synthetic shutters also have the highest fireproof rating available for household materials. Because of this, they are the only material that a fire code allows for commercial buildings over three stories.
