Eclipse Shutters have the design, durability, and performance needed in demanding commercial building settings. Our custom plantation shutters can withstand years of wear and tear without cracking, fading, warping or peeling. Most importantly, they never have to be refinished! Plantation shutters can make a space feel more like home, and that is very important when designing retail, healthcare and hospitality facilities.
For healthcare and hospitality facilities, it is important to consider a window treatment that not only makes the space feel more like home, but also one that has low chemical emissions. The GREENGUARD® Certification Program gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, which contribute to the creation of healthier interiors. Eclipse Shutters have the GREENGUARD Gold Certification that offers stricter certification criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly, and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System.
Eclipse Shutters are also listed under GREENGUARD’s Microbial Resistance category. This listing provides products that have been shown to resist the growth of mold when subjected to adverse environmental conditions. They are also fire retardant and meet the NFPA 701 fire safety standards. All of these factors make them the perfect choice for commercial settings.
