Eclipse Shutters was one of the featured products in The ABC Kids Expo GREENGUARD Nursery for the second time

Eclipse Shutters was one of the featured products in the ABC Kids Expo GREENGUARD Nursery in 2009, and they were featured a second time in 2010! Held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY, the main focus of the show is on products from newborn through teen, predominantly in the areas of furniture, bedding, room decor, baby gear, toys and related accessories. The GREENGUARD nursery at The ABC Show helps to create awareness that good indoor air quality is critical to providing healthy environments for children. With children spending on average 85% of their time indoors and indoor air typically 2-5 times more polluted than the outdoor air, one of the most important steps for protecting children is to make sure the air they breathe indoors is clean and free of hazardous pollutants.

Decisions To Make Before Buying Shutters

If you’re thinking of installing interior shutters for your windows, there are a number of details to take into consideration in order to make the decision that is right for you and your home. Shutters are an excellent investment in your home. Not only do they enhance the beauty and appeal of any room where they are installed, but they also help create an energy-efficient space by preventing the weather from affecting your preferred indoor environment. Below are some points to consider before you decide whether installing indoor shutters in your home is the right choice for you.

Construction

Not all shutters are created equal. Make sure the brand you choose is designed and built for safety and durability. Our shutters are constructed to reduce heat gain during summer months and serve as efficient insulators in the winter. They are also UV-resistant, reflecting these harmful rays instead of letting them penetrate your home. Our shutters are also constructed with consumer safety in mind. There are no dangling cords, which makes them safe for children and pets. They are flame-retardant and meet the standards of the National Fire Protection Agency. They are also made from 100 percent non-toxic materials and are GREENGUARD Gold certified.

Care

Shutters are also incredibly simple to maintain. For busy households, this is definitely a point worth taking into consideration. Keeping your interior shutters looking new is easy. Simply wipe them regularly with a soft damp cloth followed by a thorough drying with another clean piece of cloth. That's it! Our shutters are non-porous and water- and mildew-resistant, making them the ideal choice for the kitchens and bathrooms.

Cost

Although shutters can cost more than other window treatments, they are incredibly durable, so the up-front expense will be worth it in the long run. Plus, our shutters come with a 25-year warranty. That’s almost as long as most people plan to live in their homes. Rest assured, when you purchase interior shutters from us, you will be enjoying them for many wonderful years. Before you decide whether shutters are the right choice for your home, give the matter serious thought. Then when you’re ready to have them installed in your home, call Eclipse Shutters.
