Eclipse Shutters is a 2015 WCMA Product Awards Winner

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) has named Eclipse Shutters a 2015 Product Awards Winner! Our team won "Best New Style Concept Honorable Mention" in the Shutter Category for the new UltraSatin finish. The UltraSatin finish uses revolutionary technology to achieve the look of a premium painted shutter, which adds beauty and elegance to any room.


We are Honored


The title of Product Awards Winner is highly-esteemed and given each year in recognition of the best product manufacturers in the window covering industry. A panel of industry judges — who are proven experts in interior design and decor — met in New York City to review all new product entries on November 5, 2015, and announced the winners later in the month.


Top Competition

Eclipse Shutters was among 15 other winning entries from organizations across the United States and was one of the winners from almost 100 participants. The winners were chosen on the grounds of top-quality design and engineering innovation and were chosen based on several pre-selected categories. According to representatives of WCMA, the entries had increased innovation from last year and featured fresher designs across all categories.

The window covering categories that are judged every year are numerous. Some of the categories include drapery hardware, environmentally-friendly product categories, vertical and horizontal blinds, motorization, roller and pleated shades, cellular shades and real and faux wood blinds. According to a press release by the WCMA, the Product Awards judging panel makes their considerations very carefully and reviews a wide variety of new and enhanced window covering products every year. Ralph Vasami, the executive director of WCMA, said that this time around there was a large number of very technical innovations and new designs and that it made for some intense competition among the designers and manufacturers. He also said the level of quality shown before the judges speak volumes for the "hard work and ingenuity of our industry's engineering and design teams."

We are excited to attend the  International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE) to celebrate this achievement. The Expo will take place January 19th through the 21st, 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  To view the winning submissions — including the Eclipse Shutters winning submission — visit the WCMA web site at For more information about our award-winning shutters, contact us today. 

Facts About Shutters

If you're interested in purchasing shutters for your home, there are a few benefits that you should definitely be aware of. At Eclipse Shutters, we think an educated consumer is the best consumer. Don't waste your time and money by installing fabric or plastic blinds that will only last for a short amount of time. Instead, invest in beautiful and durable shutters that will bring beauty and value to your home for years to come. 


7 Reasons to Love Shutters

Shutters are outstanding in more ways than one. Between their sleek, beautiful look, cost-saving energy benefits, and the added home value, it's easy to see why shutters are worth the investment. Read on to learn why we love shutters, and why you should too.

7 Reasons to Love Eclipse Shutters


  1. Shutters are perfect when you need a lot of light, or when you want to darken a room. The louvers on our shutters allow a lot of light to shine through when they're open and privacy when they're closed. Choose the 4 1/2" louver for the largest view to the outside.
  2. The cleaning process is more streamlined than other window treatments: simply wipe them down with a dusting cloth and you're done. If you see any dirt and grime, you can also wipe them down with a wet cloth and water, since they are water resistant.
  3. There aren't any cords or strings to worry about. The tilt bar or rear tilt will never get tangled and become a hazard like a pull cord can.
  4. Shutters can help you save money on your energy bills. This window treatment helps trap the heat inside when it's cold and keeps the cold on the inside when it's warm, effectively working with your HVAC system to control the temperature in your home.
    • Eclipse Shutters are designed with pockets of air built straight into both the frame and the louver, allowing them to reduce solar heat gain during hotter months and keep colder air outside during winter months. They also protect against harmful UV rays, reflecting them outside instead of absorbing them into the interior of your home.
  5. Shutters give any room that extra dose of style. They can transform an otherwise bland room into a great-looking space. They provide more than just a window dressing; they are decor for your windows!
  6. Upgrading to high-quality shutters will increase the value of your home. When potential buyers see them, they'll know right away that you've invested in your home.
  7. Eclipse shutters do not warp, bend, peel or crack because they're built with the best materials for shutter design, and are made with ultra-precise machinery. And, with our new UltraSatin™ finish, they will never need to be repainted or refinished.
Investing in high-quality shutters shouldn't just be considered purely for the aesthetic appeal - they should be considered because they'll benefit you in more ways than one. If you're ready to upgrade your window treatments to shutters, contact us today to find the Eclipse dealer that's closest to you.

Get a Unique Look by Using Shutters as Doors

The best way to create a unique look for your home is by going against some conventions. You can do this by finding creative uses for commonly used materials and fixtures. For example, you should consider using shutters as doors when remodeling your home.

Shutters as Closet Doors

Homeowners have a tendency to overlook the closet doors of their home when remodeling. In most homes, closet doors are forgotten when it comes to the aesthetic appeal of a room. If you are purchasing shutters, don't forget to consider installing them on your closets as well for a custom look. By using closet doors equipped with shutters, you'll streamline the look of any room and add architectural interest where there was none before. Tightly shut louvers will block the closet's contents from view. Eclipse Shutters offers a Bi-Fold track system is commonly used for closet doors and allows the shutters to slide and fold to an open position. If a handle is desired, the Deluxe Divider Rail is the perfect solution for opening and closing shutters used on closet doors. This track system is designed to accommodate window and door openings from 24" to 192" wide and 20" to 120" high.


Shutters as Patio Doors

Another way in which you can incorporate shutters into the doors of your home is by installing them to be used as patio doors. For French doors that will lead into a master suit or patio doors that lead to an exterior porch area, shutters are an excellent choice. Eclipse shutters are custom made to solve your particular design needs with a contoured design that will accommodate all of the latest door handles. With a view to the outdoors, keeping the louvers open is a nice option that really opens up a room.

Advantages of Interior Shutters

Besides the aesthetic appeal, there are many advantages of having interior shutters installed in your home. The main advantage is that interior shutters make your home more energy efficient. Eclipse Shutters have pockets of air designed into the louver and frame parts. This construction reduces solar heat gain during the summer months and provides excellent insulation during the winter months, making these shutters extremely energy efficient. Ultraviolet protection reflects the suns strong rays instead of being absorbed into the home. Another advantage is that Eclipse shutters are very easy to care for and require minimal maintenance. Best of all, Eclipse Shutters are resistant to water, so you don't have to worry about windows and doors located in high humidity areas becoming damaged.

Shutters Boost Privacy in Any Setting

Privacy, whether at home or at work, is highly-prized but not often achieved. Privacy begins with a state of mind and grows to include physical surroundings. With 79% of the U.S. population living in urban areas and population density being between 2,300 (Ketchikan, Alaska) and 69,000+ (Manhattan, New York) in incorporated cities, gaining privacy by putting physical space between you and your neighbor is almost impossible. That's where we come in. Nothing boosts the sense of privacy like shutters. They are opaque, easy to adjust, and unlike drapes, allow air to circulate from outdoors, all without allowing any outsider to see into your living or working space. In addition to providing stylish privacy, shutters add to the value of your home. New owners will not have to replace them because Eclipse Shutters:
  • Carry a 25-year warranty and are known to be the best in the business.
  • Become permanent window treatments. They stay with the house and are one less thing for new owners to have to worry about.
  • Always keep their like-new look. They do not fade, warp, crack or peel, even in higher-humidity environments.
  • Never need to be refinished or repainted. Dusting or wiping with a damp cloth is all the upkeep needed.
  • Help decrease utility bills by keeping heat out in the summer and cold out in the winter
  • Do not need child- or pet-proofing because they are cordless and safe to install around children and pets.
  • Are non-porous, which makes them safe for everyone to be around.

Even if you plan to list your home on the real-estate market in as few as ten days, Eclipse can complete custom orders in time for them to be installed by the first showing. If you have any questions or concerns about Eclipse Shutters, please contact us. We're here to help you.
