  • Traditions Composite Shutters

  • Graber® Traditions Composite Shutters

    Engineered from high-density polymers, SWFcontract Traditions Composite Shutters are designed to resist fading, cracking, and peeling, which makes them ideal for buildings in high-moisture climates. Insulating composite shutters keep out the cold to help lower energy bills, and they also block UV rays and reduce glare. Our FR rated composite shutters are an affordable alternative to real wood shutters.

  • MATERIALS AND TREATMENT

    • Louvers measure 2½", 3½", or 4½", and are made of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) with calcium carbonate and other fillers.
    • Stiles contain an aluminum reinforcement rod to add rigidity to the panel.
    • Shutters are FR rated and meet California Fire Marshal Title 19: Section 1237 Fire Resistance; Small Scale Test.

    FRAME TYPES

    • Inside mount applications include hang-strip, direct mount, and Z-frame.
    • Outside mount applications include L-frame and deco frame.
    • Window squareness: If a window is measured diagonally and it measures more than ¼" out of square, then an outside mount shutter is required.
