This state is definitely one of the most beautiful places to live, and some of us are lucky enough to call Hawaii home. While blessed with great weather year-round, every homeowner knows that the troubles of heat and moisture take a toll on homes. Being able to control the amount of heat that penetrates the home is one of the best features that plantation shutters allow any homeowner.

Plantation shutters make it easy to insulate your home, and they keep the cool in and the heat out. The ability to regulate the temperature in your home helps to upkeep the interior by blocking out harmful heat and UV rays that can wear and damage your floors, furniture and paint. Shutters also help to keep your home cooler, which in turn will make it easier to beat Hawaii’s heat.

Polycore shutters are built to last. “The quality and strength of our Poly-core Shutter is unmatched in the shutter industry,” said Gavin Shibuya, owner of G&S Shutter Designs. “The aluminum core that runs through our louvers is one of the best features of the Polycore Shutter, and no other shutter on the market today has that feature. It allows us to take our panels up to 36 inches in width, and the louvers will not sag because of the additional support from the aluminum core,” said Shibuya. “We really just want to offer our customers a high-quality product along with the best price on the island.”


The Polycore shutter is the world’s only solid synthetic shutter with a coextruded aluminum core. All of the rails, stiles and louvers are reinforced with an aluminum core. They have a baked-on, water-borne paint, and are both fire-retardant and moisture-resistant. “Our Polycore Shutter comes in five different shades of white, three different louver sizes and a variety of framing options,” said Shibuya.

G&S Shutter Designs has been in business for seven years and has many satisfied customers all over the island. “We have completed many projects over the years, which include Kahala Nui, St. Francis Hospice and we currently handle the development Kamakana at Hoakalei,” said Shibuya. “G&S Shutter Designs has the experience to handle any job, and we treat every home as if they were our own.”
