Start you your healthy home Journey with our eco plantation shutters.
“Home Owners on average, spend 90% of our lives indoors. The buildings in which we live should support and enhance the wellbeing of everyone in those buildings.”
1. Certified Non – Toxic/Low Voc –The materials, paints and stains used to make our eco plantation shutters have been tested for harmful toxins and certified as low-voc & toxic free. This means there will be no harmful off-gas polluting the internal atmosphere in your home.
2. Thermal Qualities– When it comes to the thermal performance of your home, window treatments are probably one of the most neglected and underrated part of the building process. Up to 40% of home heating and cooling energy is lost via the windows. Eco shutters will help reduce your home’s energy consumption by offering heat reflection during summer months and will act as an insulator an in the winter.
3. Ventilation– One of the most practical and effective ways to accomplish sustainability and green-living, is through natural ventilation. Ventilation is essential for maintaining healthy indoor air quality. With eco plantation shutters you can control natural ventilation by allowing the fresh outdoor air in when the blades are open.
4. Natural light- Natural light is a secret weapon in homes. When we walk into a home which has great natural light we think ‘wow what a wonderful space this is, I am enjoying being in it’, without really realising why. Natural light has positive impacts on our health, well-being and productivity, it’s not until you’ve been in a home with little to no natural light that you realise natural light is key.
