Environmental features

 

Aside from being praised for their elegant look, Vogue Shutters are environmentally friendly and health-safe for your home. Our PolySatin shutters have pockets of air designed into the louvre and frame. This construction virtually eliminates solar heat gain during the summer months, making them extremely energy-efficient. They are made from non-toxic materials and do not allow harmful mould or mildew to adhere to the shutter.

  • 100% recyclable
  • Non-toxic
  • GREENGUARD® Listed for Microbial Resistance. Vogue Shutters are shown to resist the growth of mould when subjected to adverse environmental conditions.
  • Tested for chemical emissions, Vogue Shutters are GREENGUARD® Indoor Air Quality certified.
  • Vogue Shutters are suitable for use in educational environments (day-care and K-12) as they have been GREENGUARD® Children and Schools certified for low chemical emissions.

Fire retardancy*

Polyresin 3 has inherent flame-retardant qualities built right into the material. Without adding any coatings or coverings, Polyresin 3 resists ignition and flame spread, burns at a higher temperature than many other materials, and commonly will not burn once the flame source is removed. These characteristics make Vogue Shutters a safe option for both commercial and residential applications.

Sustainability

The efficient design and durability of Vogue Shutters mean they will last many times longer than traditional blinds or shades. This is an important environmental benefit, because the longer a product lasts, the less energy and other resources are expended to manufacture, ship and install replacement products, and then remove, transport and dispose of those replacements.

*Not suitable for use in parts of buildings with Special Requirements i.e. fire isolated exits; public corridors leading to a fire isolated stairway, passageway or ramp; a patient care area of health care buildings; and in a public assembly building (e.g. theatre or hall) not protected with a sprinkler system.
