Air conditioning accounts for approximately 45-65% of a single- family dwellings monthly utility bill. Windows can account for 11-24% of this amount. Experts estimate that 20-30% of the summer heat can soak through your windows if not properly insulated. With energy cost ski rocketing, you will appreciate the products that will conserve energy.

AluCore Poly Shutters
will provide the insolating factors up to R-Value 5.9
to save your money.


•  ALU CORE Poly Shutters custom plantation shutters are different than any
    other synthetic shutter.
    Aluminum reinforcing is co-extruded with the shutter components (see pictures).
    This provides for a very strong, rigid, durable shutter that will

N O T

        ==>    bow, warp, peel, crack, or need repainting    <==

•  Further, unlike other poly shutters that are only glued together, ALU CORE
    Poly Shutters aluminum reinforcing allows for them to BOLTED together.

•  ALU CORE Poly Shutters is highly resistant to the environment and are a great
    choice for areas that will get wet such as showers. Their durability
    makes them a great choice for shutters over sliding glass doors.

•  ALU CORE Poly Shutters aluminum core makes wider louver lengths possible,     making the option of wider panels available for a cleaner and less
    obscured view out of the window.
    Many Composite Wood or Polywood shutters are limited to
    around 28 inches wide. However, ALU CORE Poly Shutters plantation shutters
    can have panel widths up to 36 inches wide!

•   ALU CORE Poly Shutters has a harder material surface, reducing the
     likelihood of dings and dents.

•   ALU CORE Poly Shutters has stronger joints at the stile and rail. The screw
     together format is the strongest possible format for assembling
     shutter panels, also allowing for simple unscrew to replace a
     louver if it becomes damaged.

•   No hole strip that can slide up or down in the stile causing uneven
     gaps between louvers and rails. ALU CORE Poly Shutters offers a co-extruded
     one part stile so no cracks are seen between the stile and the hole strip.

•   Colors have been developed to match customers’ decor and are
     highly versatile.

Manufacturing and Components

When making the rails, stiles, and louvers, an aluminum core is co-extruded into the solid polymer. This provides for enhanced rigidity and durability. The aluminum core is hidden inside the components and makes them much stronger. It makes them so strong that ALU CORE Poly Shutters can be built with individual shutter panels out to 36 inches wide! This does not limit the allowable window width, however. By using multiple panels and intermediate T-posts, almost any window can be covered.

Lest you think that we are overstating our case, the next time you are in a Home Depot or some other store, go over to the shutter displays and grab one of the louvers of those cheaper PolyWoodTM louvers in the middle and flex it up and down. It is not difficult to flex them. (Do NOT do this with vinyl shutters as you will most likely break the louver.)

When the sun heats those cheaper louvers, they WILL sag. Further, the shutter panels themselves will sag. This is why most other polymer shutters are only available with panel widths out to 28 inches or so. They can not span the extra distance without noticeable sag in the louvers and the shutter panels. One other important detail is that ALU CORE Poly Shutters plantation shutters are screwed together at the joint of the rail and stile. The screws are run through the aluminum reinforcing in the stile into the aluminum in the rail and then capped. This produces a much stronger joint.

Reparability

The screw together format also has a terrific advantage in that it makes the shutters extremely repairable. Of course, it takes a lot to damage ALU CORE Poly Shutters plantation shutters, but if someone was successful in doing it, repair is quick and easy. For example, if someone bent a stile, we would not need to ship you a new shutter panel. We could simply ship you a new stile (or you could keep some material on hand just in case). You would remove the screw caps, unscrew the stile, and screw on a new one. Replacing rails and louvers are done in a similar manner. Not all polymer shutters are created equal. Not only does ALU CORE Poly Shutters have the hidden aluminum reinforcing, but it also has a harder shell which is resistant to dents and dings. They also have self tensioning louver pins, so you never need to adjust the louver tension.



Polycore shutters


Cleanability

With ALU CORE Poly Shutters baked on finish, the only way they usually get dirty is if dust settles on them. An occasional dusting is all that is needed. Even if someone with greasy hands touches them, there is no need to worry. Unlike wood interior plantation shutters, ALU CORE Poly Shutters can be cleaned with almost anything. Do not use anything with abrasives or solvents, but normal household furniture cleaners are just fine.



Polycore shutters


Versatility

ALU CORE Poly Shutters plantation shutters are actually more versatile than most other types of shutters, whether they are made of wood or poly material. They come with 2-1/2, 3-1/2, or 4-1/2 inch wide louvers. They are available in specialty shapes to cover odd shaped windows including arch tops and lazy arch tops in both sunburst style and standard horizontal louver style. They come in rake tops, hexagons and octagons, again in sunburst and standard style. They can even be put over French doors and sliding glass doors. One of the best ways to cover a sliding glass door is with ALU CORE Poly Shutters shutters. A sliding glass door is used often. Not only are the louvers tilted open or closed, but the shutter panels themselves are slid open and shut. The durability and rigidity of ALU CORE Poly Shutters are a perfect match for this application. We highly suggest the use of overhead tracks with sliding glass doors for ALU CORE Poly Shutters. Next are some details about ALU CORE Poly Shutters and overhead track systems. However, be sure to reference Plantation Shutters Over Sliding Glass Doors for more details and ways to cover sliding glass doors.

Overhead Track Systems

ALU CORE Poly Shutters provides for 2 types of track systems: Bi-Fold and Bi-Pass. Both track systems contain a 1” top header (mounting/dust board) to which the aluminum track is mounted. Two 1” side legs are also supplied (if needed) to prevent light leakage and to stop the shutter panels. To ensure the track system stays in place, an L frame is used as a support strip and added to the back of the top header. A three inch valance is used to cover the aluminum track at the top to provide a finished look.

Bi-Fold Overhead Track Systems

Bi-fold Plantation Shutters contain shutter panels that are hinged together and therefore fold against each other, similar to a closet door. The track helps to guide and support the panels. Bi-fold panels can be configured to where panels open all to one side or to where they open to both sides of the door. Panels must be hinged together in multiples of two. A special frame is used with Bi-Fold track systems that supports the track and minimizes light leaks.



Polycore shutters     Polycore shutters


Bi-Pass Overhead Track Systems

Bi-Pass track systems are when two or more shutter panels are hung from an overhead track and slide behind and past each other. Note that the louvers must be closed for the shutters to slide past each other. Bi-pass plantation shutters are a great option for where space is an issue since the panels never protrude into the room. This configuration is only available with a double or triple (or more) overhead track. An extended overhead track is also available that allows the plantation shutters to be slid completely past the door for full view.

Cost

The full life cycle cost of ALU CORE Poly Shutters plantation shutters is quite low. You can replace other window coverings several times during the lifecycle of a ALU CORE Poly Shutters. Further, ALU CORE Poly Shutters costs much less than ANY comparable product…that is if a comparable product exists. They cost less than PolyWoodTM which in my opinion is not near the quality of ALU CORE Poly Shutters. Due to better manufacturing processes and higher efficiencies, you pay less. Even better, all assembly takes place right here in the United States. For a quote, please visit Pricing for Custom Made Plantation Shutters, or Contact Us with your details. We will be happy to price anything you require.
