Shutters are a timeless, elegant, and desired window treatment solution. Significant advancements in shutter materials and construction methods have made them even more versatile. Norman®’s Woodlore® Plus Shutters are extremely durable, come in a variety of colors. The special waterproof shutter is built to resist moisture. The durable ABS co-polymer means a tough and waterproof surface that won’t chip, scratch, or dent. Not to mention, stainless steel hinges included in the waterproof option are guaranteed never to rust or corrode.
Types of Waterproof Shutters
Waterproof shutters are sometimes made from PVC or vinyl, but Norman® products are made with advanced thermoplastics like ABS materials instead. These high-quality materials are more durable and energy efficient than the PVC options. Unlike PVC, ABS will not fade, twist, cup, or degrade over time and has a higher heat tolerance. See Why Norman® Doesn’t Sell PVC/Vinyl Shutters.
For applications where the shutter will be exposed to prolonged direct water contact, such as in a shower, our Woodlore® Plus with the waterproof option is a superior option because of its design and materials. Unlike others made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or vinyl, Norman®’s waterproof shutter is made from an advanced thermoplastic known as ABS. These durable shutters are perfect for bathrooms and kitchens.
