What are PVC Shutters?

PVC shutters are made from Polyvinyl with slats that are built with a tough aluminium core. This gives them a high level of durability and 100% waterproofness. This type of waterproof PVC shutter is specifically designed for any window in your bathrooms, kitchens, or any wet room in your house. The PVC material is the perfect material for a moist environment because it will not be damaged by the excess moisture in the room.

You might be curious about the advantages of installing PVC shutters over the other types of shutters in your bathroom. One of the main advantages of having PVC shutters over others is their waterproofness. The Polyvinyl range of waterproof shutters is perfect for bathrooms where moisture builds up. Even though the shutters come in direct contact with water, its co-polymer coating is 100% waterproof to prevent damage from moisture.

PVC is also a type of hardwearing material, providing a high level of durability for your shutters that keeps them in fine condition for years. Their resistance to fading and warping makes them a long-lasting type of shutter.

With the other types of shutters (take wooden shutters as an example), there might be scratches, peels, or even cracks over time, and that’s why PVC shutters are considered to be a more durable window shutter option. On top of that, PVC shutters are also UV protected so there won’t be fading on it, even with direct contact with the sunlight in your bathroom. Not to mention PVC shutters are typically less expensive than wood ones which could be a more cost-effective option for homeowners.
