Polywood Shutter Insulating System

Today, everyone is talking about saving energy. As energy prices rise, consumers need to make the best decisions to save money.

Everyone knows that windows are one of the biggest sources of heat gain/loss in the home. The right window treatment can help. Shutters are widely considered to be the most energy efficient window treatment, and Sunburst’s Polywood Shutter Insulating System is the best of the best!

What makes the Polywood Shutter Insulating System better than the competition starts with our unique material that is dense enough to block air flow. The sides of our shutters have weather-stripping pieces that seal to block more temperature and light than any other shutter. This weather-stripping also comes standard on our decorative frame. Finally, with UV inhibitors in both the material and baked into the paint finish, Polywood stands up to even the most intense sunny climates.

Polywood delivers energy savings better than any other shutter, including:

BLOCKING AIR FLOW
An independent agency tested Polywood’s thermal protection and found that it can block as much as 30 degrees of air flow that comes through a window. Learn more about our thermal test results.

 

SAVING KILOWATT HOURS
A consulting firm for a major Electric Company validated that Polywood shutters save kilowatt hours, which saves on your heating and cooling bills.

 

MAXIMIZING R-VALUE
Polywood’s been tested in various types of windows and found to have an R-Value of over 6 in a double pane window. That’s the highest of any shutter on the market.
