With the rise of private charter schools and "boutique" colleges and universities, the understood need for well designed facilities which encourage the best from students is also on the rise. As part of that design decision, schools must consider the best window treatment for their educational design plan.
Interestingly, while the cost of plantation shutters has moderated when compared with 15 years ago, the functionality and flexibility has increased. This is thanks largely to the surging technology of the poly shutter. Poly shutters offer educational institutions the option to utilize shutters in their design while also ensuring a safe, environmentally friendly, and long lasting aesthetic.
Consider this - a poly shutters synthetic composition means that they are very durable, have an inherently high R-value and are extremely energy efficient. Poly shutters are also moisture resistant and flame retardant, perfect for use in humid or warm environments.
A few poly shutter manufacturers are GREENGUARD® Indoor Air Quality and Children & Schools Certified. This means that their poly shutter has passed an extensive series of tests to ensure that it meets stringent third-party standards on chemical emissions based on established health standards.
So, the next time you get ready to build a new school facility, or renovate that older building, please kindly put some serious consideration into including poly shutters for your windows. The people that work and study in the space will thank you.
