Interior shutter with adjustable louvers can be designed in many different styles and come in a large range of louver sizes and colours. Shutters come in many different material and price options, the quality of our lowest price shutter (Seattle) is actually as good as the premium Vancouver Range, it is lower priced because of the material used and finishing required.

Vancouver
Vancouver 
Made from Western Red Cedar, Vancouver is available in painted, lacquered or oiled finishes. The "oiled" finish option provides the most natural appearance of any shutter available and is the natural choice for barns and warehouse conversions. The Timber is so durable and stable it could be left outside untreated due to its resin content. 
 
 
Portland 
Our Portland shutter range is made from basswod. With its smooth and consistent grain, make it a very robust and high quality hardwood, Strengthened with an engineered core to prevent any possibility of warping. Portland shutters are well suited to areas where extra durability is required either around the home or for commercial premises 
Portland
Boston
Boston 
Crafted from solid basswood, Boston is a very competitively priced hardwood and popular material for shutters. All shutter stiles have mortice and tenon joints to prevent warping and ensure prolonged quality and durability. Initially available in limited shutter styles and three white shades with the introduction of limited stain colour options over time. 
Phoenix 
Although a hardwood it is also very light allowing design for quite wide openings without having to resort to top tracking. This also enables us to confidently use Phoenix for large (tier on tier) installations where weight would definitely preclude the use of Seattle or similar weight hardwood shutter panels. 
The almost White timber stains to match most timbers accurately, while the grain reminiscent of Oak, appears rich and exuberant even when painted. 
Phoenix
Seattle

SOLID PANEL SHUTTERS 
 
OUR SOLID RAISED PANEL SHUTTERS ARE OPTIONS ONLY FOR THE PHOENIX AND VANCOUVER RANGES. 
 
The Victorians, who knew a thing or two about these shutters generally used Cedar or pine. The pine shutters they made will by now have largely rotted and we do quite a lot of replacement work for these. We can also replace the panelling found below the window shutters as these are really just shutter panels fixed to the wall. 
 
We fit a lot of these products to homes where road noise is an issue and also security. The Victorians fitted them for security and some other quite different reasons. When they went off for the season and given that the glass was very thin in those days, birds could fly into the windows and their interiors would be damaged, so the shutters were only pulled across a couple of times a year. We design differently. Our shutters can be used daily but we generally don't pull them back into reveal boxes. 
 
For greater light reduction, we offer rebated panel edges now as standard.

Conservatory 
 
CONSERVATORY SHUTTERS, APART FROM LOOKING GREAT, OFFER A DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY SIMPLY NOT POSSIBLE WITH MOST OTHER SHADING OPTIONS. UNLIKE FABRIC BASED SHADING SYSTEMS, SHUTTERS WILL NOT ROT, SAG OR AGE PERCEPTIVELY AND ARE EASY TO CLEAN. 
 
Plantation Shutters can be used on the sides as well, for long sections they can be mounted on top tracking to slide away when not in use. 
 
Shutters are also used for partitioning and as multi fold internal doors. Quite often the opening to the conservatory may have shutters suspended on a top track. The solid base and louvre top shutters are used extensively for these applications. 
 
If your enquiry is for a conservatory application please make that clear when you make the call.

Fitting 
 
THE DIY approach is possible as fitting instructions are availiable but most of you will have your shutters fitted by our Expert Fitting Team, PRO - FITT UK. 
 
There are many ways to fit shutters and there is no one way that is better than another. You may fit them inside the reveal, the most common way in the UK, or on the edge of the reveal or outside the reveal, all are permissible methods. 
 
Frames are used extensively these days and they do certainly offer a number of benefits. However, UK housing stock, old or new, is generally brick, block and plastered. The plastering is never straight and batten fitting may be more suitable for out of shape openings. Frames were devised for the US market where the houses are made of timber frames which normally are a lot straighter. 
 
The main difference between frames and battens used to be the hiding of the magnetic catches that hold your shutters straight, however now most companies fit with hidden magnets anyway, even in the header strip battens, its just a different look. 
 
We do offer an inside mount L frame now that can be planed to take out some curve in the walls but it may still better to use battens if it severe. Battens can hide a certain amount of out of squareness but they will never straighten out your walls entirely. Talk through the options with us.
