It seems like everyone is trying to think green. From hybrid cars to organic produce; we are becoming more aware of our impact on the earth. But what about our choice in shutters? Is there a green option?
Danmer created custom Thermalite™ Shutters for homeowners looking to make a green choice. Not only do they look great, they also improve energy efficiency in the home and are made without using precious natural resources.
Thermalite Shutters are the ultimate choice for energy efficiency. Thanks to the refined manufacturing process, these shutters insulate 3 times better than their wood counterparts and can reduce your home energy bills by up to 35%. Maximum insulation helps keep in the heat in the winter and the cool air when temperatures climb in the summer. Proper window coverings make it so that the heater and air conditioner don’t have to work as hard to keep the inside temperature comfortable. And of course the less electricity we use, the smaller our carbon footprint is.
Even the material used to manufacture Thermalite Shutters is eco-friendly. The polymer material is non-toxic, water resistant, fire retardant and 100% synthetic which means that no natural resources are used to make them. The proprietary finishes are water based, environmentally safe, and produce very low VOCs.
A warranty may not seem like an eco-friendly addition, but with a 25 year warranty on workmanship and labor as well as a 10 year warranty on the painted finish, homeowners can feel confident knowing their shutters will last for a very long time. And because the material is so durable and can go for years without needing to be replaced this means less going to the landfills over time.
You buy locally grown produce. Why not locally made window coverings? The concept is the same. The less the materials have to travel, the fewer resources are used. Thermalite Shutters are made right here in the USA and have been for the last 35 years.
For years Danmer Custom Shutters has shown a commitment to the environment and environmentally responsible manufacturing. You’ll find shutters made from green building materials, engineered wood products, or recyclable building materials in factories that do their best to recycle over 75% of all waste. Danmer is the answer to choosing green options for custom shutters.
