Our timber plantation painted shutters are made from 100% premium poplar, a low-density light-coloured hardwood, which possesses a fine texture and flawless finish.

Luxaflex Polysatin Shutters

Luxaflex PolySatin Shutters are the modern alternative to traditional wooden shutters and are virtually maintenance free bringing a touch of understated elegance to any interior. Luxaflex PolySatin Shutters are made from a polyresin compound and finished with a revolutionary technology to create a soft, matte lustre look of a freshly painted finish which helps the shutters resist the harsh, bleaching UV rays of summer and the cooler winters.

Our polysatin shutters are available in three classic shades of white, plus stylish valances, distinctive frames, three unique louvre sizes and tasteful hinge finishes. Louvres can be rotated 180 degrees to open or fully close in both directions. They come with a 20 year warranty.

PolySatin shutters are made from a non-toxic polyresin compound which proudly complies with GREENGUARD Gold Certification standards. They have been rigorously tested and scientifically proven to emit low chemical and particle emissions, making them the ideal solution for all households especially those with young children. Their cellular construction creates a layer of energy-saving insulation as it traps air within a distinct pocket. Coupled with polyresin’s low conductivity, they greatly reduce heat exchange. PolySatin Shutters reflect inbound solar rays back to the outside during summer, but can be opened to allow the warming sun into your home in winter thereby reducing air-conditioning costs.

The Luxaflex Polysatin shutter is available in a motorised operation.

PVC Plantation Shutters

It is a solid, synthetic and non-toxic product. PVC Plantation Shutters have sound, insulation, and damping properties and are suitable for both internal and external applications.

Basswood Plantation Shutters

Basswood (or known as Tilia tree) is lighter in weight and straighter with less sap and breaks in nature, which all together forms its benefits for making shutters. Basswood shutters are durable and not easily damaged by heat. It is a firm timber that is lighter in weight and can be configured as hinged, fixed, bifold or sliding panels. As basswood grows slowly, it produces less sap which makes it easier to apply stains and primer. Our Basswood Shutters are made using 100% furniture grade Basswood that start from a practical source. Our paints are 100% non-dangerous, lead free and arsenic free. Basswood shutters are slowly being replaced by more sustainable timbers.

White Teak Plantation Shutters

As Basswood becomes more difficult to acquire, and more expensive, White Teak is the perfect substitute. White Teak is a small to medium sized hardwood, that is traditionally grown in tropical climates and is nurtured in the protected forest. White teak planation shutters have a low shrinkage, are FSC certified, lightweight, with extraordinary strength.

The benefits of White Teak are:

  • Fast Growing

  • Low shrinkage
  • High strength
  • FSC certified
  • Environmentally sustainable
