Premium Hardwood Shutter Materials

During the manufacturing process, the wood used for every shutter is specially stored, dried, and treated to minimise the risk of warping and twisting which can occur in natural materials. The premium hardwood ranges are lighter than shutters crafted from MDF, and provide a wide range of colour and stain choices not available in the ABS Java range.

Range: Sumtra

Our Sumtra range is made from the finest quality White Teak from the Solomon Islands. It has a beautiful tight uniform wood grain and offers the widest range of options.

Range: Fiji

Stained Fiji shutters are made from premium Paulownia, a sustainable hardwood harvested every 7-10 years. They have a distinct grain, ideal if you like natural textures, and come in a wide range of stains and paint colours.

Range: Cuba

Cuba is our entry level hardwood range. They are made from premium robust MDF frames but feature lightweight hardwood panels and louvres.

ABS & MDF Shutter Materials

For busy family homes, the robust ABS and MDF ranges are ideal for standing up to daily wear and tear. Whether you are looking for a waterproof way to control privacy and light, or a hardwearing solution for all the family, then ABS and MDF could be good options to consider. Available in a more limited colour palette than our hardwood ranges.

Range: Java

Java is 100% waterproof and very strong, made from sturdy ABS. Ideal for high humidity rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens, as well as children’s play areas. ABS is the same material which motorcycle helmets are made from.

Range: Bermuda

Bermuda is a hybrid of Java and Antigua, featuring robust MDF frames and panels with hollow lighter ABS louvres. It comes in a wider colour palette and more closely resembles the finish of a painted hardwood shutter.

Range: Antigua

Antigua is our entry level shutter solution made from a high quality MDF covered in a patented polymer coating. It is robust and hardwearing.
