Whether you are living mauka or makai, a favorite and practical choice for window treatments is the Plantation Shutter. Shutters are excellent insulators & heat reflectors, which can aid in lowering the island's high energy costs. There are several different styles of shutters and materials from which they are manufactured. Among these are wood and composite. Wood shutters are a classic favorite that stand the test of time. They are ideal for vast window openings in the bypass application pictured above. Composite shutters are waterproof, self-extinguishing, termite-proof and will not rot, rust or warp.
