Polywood® shutters are not only a completely recyclable shutter, but they are also comprised of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. No other shutter company in Austin – or even in the US – does that.
Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing materials whenever we can. We recycle water used to cool components as they’re coming out of ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. We recycle hundreds of tons of materials each year.
When we package our window treatments for transportation to your home for installation, we insert reusable corner pieces on the edges of louvers and use the least amount of cardboard to package the shutters.
Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paints that are environmentally safe – and are even lower than the accepted volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing method, none of our paints give off fumes. When we claim our paints aren’t toxic, we mean it.
Polywood Shutters do not emit harmful gasses – so you and your household can relax and enjoy your window treatments.
