Polycore is the world’s only solid synthetic shutter with a co-extruded aluminum core. Polycore shutters have a baked on waterborne paint, and are both fire retardant and moisture resistant. In addition to offering a high insulation value against the heat and cold, they are easy to clean and maintain.
After several years of research and development OC Quality Home Products successfully mastered the fine art of co-extrusion, combining PVC and an aluminum core. Today we are the only solid synthetic company that is vertically intergrated, whereas we extrude, paint, fabricate, and distribute our Polycore shutter. All of our rails, stiles, and louvers are reinforced with an aluminum core. In the fabrication process we screw the rail and stile together with two 3/16″ X 3″ self tapping screws in each corner of the panels. These corners prevent the panels from racking, thus creating the strongest panels in the industry today. The aluminum reinforced louvers prevent sagging in wider panels, where Polycore can reach 36″ in width.
All of OC Quality Home Products Import / Domestic Polycore and Lexwood shutters use only water-base coatings. A water-based coating provides an extremely durable finish, protects the environment (zero / virtually zero V.O.C.) and safeguards your family’s health (contains absolutely NO LEAD ADDITIVES).
Have peace of mind with our long lasting durable finishes that offer product quality assurance.
