AMERICAN shutters at Intaka Island

Intaka Island is a green lung in one of the fastest growing new urban precincts, Century City in Cape Town, and comprises 16 hectares of wetland, a bird sanctuary and a Green Building showcasing best practices for sustainable living.

We sponsored Decowood shutters for the Green Building which opened on Tuesday, 26 October. Decowood shutters are popular but few know this durable range is ‘green.’

Decowood shutters are made from wood composite. Decowood shutters are preferred by environmentally conscious homeowners, builders and architects because while solid wood products utilise only 63% of a tree, wood composite production use 95% of a tree. Decowood shutters are also made from sustainable rapid-growth trees.

We are proud to be associated with Intaka Island, home to 177 species of indigenous flora and 120 bird species. Open to the public seven days a week, Intaka Island is a perfect place to get away from it all, take a leisurely stroll or ferry ride and support urban nature conversation.
