The Polywood Shutter Insulation System 

The most energy-efficient window treatment is shutters. And our Polywood shutters, with their exceptional insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in Destin – if not the US.
We construct each component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind so you can enjoy the energy savings. The specialty solid polymer material Polywood is composed from can block airflow because of its density. This makes these shutters into a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more temperature and light than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each panel. This greatly reduces heat transfer around the panels in both the hot summer and the cold winter in Destin. Add to that a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only beautiful but also extremely energy efficient. In fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter.
Shutter Energy Efficiency
A third party thermal test (forward looking infrared) showed that the Polywood Shutter Insulating System blocked as much as 30 degrees of temperature coming through the window. This means the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard.
Here’s how Polywood gives you more energy savings than any other shutter:
  • Blocks Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow that goes through a window.

  • Maximizes R-Value. Polywood’s R-Value is over 6 in a double-pane window. That’s the highest thermal resistance rating of insulation material of any shutter on the market.

  • Reduces Heat Transfer. Polywood leads to a 45.96% reduction in heat transfer.

  • Improves Energy Efficiency. Polywood is up to 70% more energy efficient than wood shutters and up to 1600% more energy efficient than aluminum blinds.

  • Resists Moisture and Humidity. Since Polywood is moisture-proof, it resists humidity and moisture that can affect a room’s temperature.
