Environmentally Responsible Shutters

TFA The Responsible Choice in ShuttersToday, it's more important than ever to select products for your new home or your green home remodel that are environmentally friendly and completely safe for you and your family. Insulated shutters made from green building materials, engineered wood products, or recyclable building materials are your best bet.

That's why Danmer developed Thermalite. Our concern for the environment and the preservation of our natural resources was the driving reason to find a substitute for wood shutters that used energy efficient building materials.

Thermalite Shutters are the only 100% non-toxic, flame retardant, water-resistant synthetic material that looks and feels exactly like wood.


Look for non-toxic shutter materials in keeping with green building standards.
