Our Polywood® Shutter Insulating System has superior thermal resistance, the best reduction of heat transfer, and offers the highest energy efficiency of all the window treatments available. And, when paired with Solar Gard window film, Polywood shutters are the ideal choice for maximum savings on your energy statements.

The Polywood Shutter Insulation System 

Shutters are the most energy-efficient window treatment. And our Polywood shutters, with their advanced insulation system, are the best energy saving shutters in San Jose – if not America.
We take care to make every component of our Polywood Shutters, keeping energy efficiency in mind so you can reap the energy savings. The exclusive solid polymer material Polywood is manufactured from is thick enough to block air flow. This results in shutters that are a natural insulator. Polywood shutters block more light and temperature than any other shutter because of their patented weather stripping on the sides of each shutter panel. This effectively reduces heat transfer at the edge of the panels in both the summer heat and winter cold in San Jose. Top that off with a heat-reflective paint, and you get a shutter that is not only timeless but also remarkably energy efficient. In fact, Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than a similar 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 provides you with more energy savings than any other shutter:
  • Stops Air Flow. Polywood’s thermal protection blocks as much as 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 you can find.

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

  • Boosts 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 moisture and humidity that can affect a room’s temperature.
