Eclipse Shutters have pockets of air designed into the louver and frame parts. This construction reduces solar heat gain during the summer months and provides excellent insulation during the winter months, making these plantation shutters extremely energy efficient. Ultraviolet protection reflects the suns strong rays instead of being absorbed into the home.
Water can be a destructive force around bathrooms, kitchens and other high humidity areas. The wrong types of materials in these spaces may rust, crack, mildew and even warp. Fortunately, Eclipse Shutters resist all of these damaging effects – making them the perfect choice for water-prone environments. All it takes to clean Eclipse Shutters is a damp cloth or light dusting and they will look as good as the day you had them installed!
Unlike wood products, it’s incredibly easy to clean and care for Eclipse Shutters. When needed, simply wet a soft cloth with water and wipe the plantation shutter panels until they are free from dust. They can also be cleaned with a mild soap, though not with lemon oil or furniture polish. Since Eclipse Shutters are non-porous, these plantation shutters resist the growth of mildew and mold making them the perfect choice for kitchens, bathrooms and even nurseries.
