Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Fort Lauderdale We provide window treatments having some recycled content or are recyclable because we want to offer you sustainable shutter products. Not only are Polywood® shutters a completely recyclable shutter, but they also contain up to 20% recycled Polywood material. No other shutter company in Fort Lauderdale – or America – does that. Sunburst supports green design, products, and buildings. We aim for reusing our materials whenever possible. We recycle water used to cool items as they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. Each year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials. When we prepare our window treatments for transportation to your house for installation, we place reusable corner pieces on the edges of louvers and use as little cardboard as possible to package the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters The patented paint finishes we apply to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even below the normal volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. In our manufacturing process, our paints don’t emit fumes. When we declare our paints aren’t toxic, we mean it. Polywood Shutters do not emit harmful gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and enjoy your window treatments.
