Traditionally, shutters were made of wood, but by combining hardwood with polyresin, we manufacture a high quality wood shutter that is durable and maintenance free.
Every shutter is custom hand built with a hardwood core that is clad in a poly surface. The solid poplar wood has the strength of a wood shutter, but the Polyclad surface is much more durable than wood. The combination delivers a traditional wood shutter that is elegant, strong and durable. The Polyclad surface will not peel, crack, scratch or discolour under the hot sun in your windows. It’s easy to clean and never needs to be repainted or replaced.
Every shutter is built with hand-picked poplar and European Baltic birch woods. We do not use MDF (fibre board), saw dust or other composite materials to build our panels. The result is remarkable strength and durability in every panel.
Shutters are finished with a rigid Polyclad surface. Polyclad is a resin surface (Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC) that is clad over the wood. This surface will not scratch, dent, fade, peel or discolour. It is easy to clean, durable and low maintenance. The rails and stiles are joined using three two-inch hardwood dowels. This triple dowel joinery is only found in high quality furniture and ensures that panels never come apart. Instead of the staples used in most shutters, we use a patented Tilt Rod Hook design that twists and locks into each louvre. These Twistlock hooks will never pull out of the louvres.
By using louvres with an air core, we created the best insulation and eliminated solid louvre warpage problems caused by the louvre weight, humidity and the hot sun. And with our additional aluminium reinforcement on large windows, we can make very wide single panels that will not warp.
