The recent amendments to the National Building Regulations – with the introduction of the SANS 10400-XA energy efficiency standard – impact on the design and specifications of many elements of a building, from floor to roof, including windows and doors.  Well-designed and finished windows and doors can improve the energy efficiency of a building by optimising natural ventilation, heating and cooling as well as natural daylighting.

White Teak shutters and blinds will bring a lightness of design to any interior space. Lightweight, naturally light in colour and with light-touch functionality, these shutters and blinds will sit comfortably in almost any architectural and décor style.  American Shutters’ soon to be launched White Teak shutters and blinds are also light on the environment. They are manufactured from timber sourced from FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified plantations in South East Asia. FSC is recognised internationally and supports environmentally, socially and economically responsible forest management worldwide. It also tracks FSC certified material from production to market, providing a link that gives end-users the assurance that the timber used in the end product was harvested from responsibly managed forests.

American Shutters was established in 1985 by Steve Palmer and his wife, Karina, when they returned to South Africa after studying and working abroad. Bringing with them their international experience and inspiration as well as a love for custom-made adjustable louvre shutters, they set up American Shutters – so called because the introduction of shutters to the New World is best recognised in the American South where they were used to keep the homesteads on the cotton plantations cool.
