The craftsmanship used to create your wooden interior shutters is extremely important, as every customer wants a product that is made to the highest standards.
Selecting the right types of wood is important, as for shutter making the ideal wood is strong but light. If you want a stain the appearance of the grain and wood itself is also key.
The Elite hardwood shutter is made from Paulownia, this is a very lightweight grainy material.
The White teak used for the Elite Plus wooden shutters is certified and has a beautiful appearance, it is available in the widest range of colours and stains. What sets these apart from other shutter products is that they are engineered for even better resistance to warping and increased strength.
All the wooden interior shutters are made using mortise and tenon joints as these are strong and traditionally the best way for joining wood together effectively.
Side stiles can be made wider to give additional strength for bigger shutters.
High quality fittings are selected, including stainless steel staples to attach the control rod safely to the louver blades, and powder coated hinges which are durable and will match the colour finish.
The louvre blades are curved in a subtle aero dynamic shape, giving a better appearance and also to ensure they fit together more closely when closed. The control rod is also shaped, with a cut out called a mouse hole into which it fits neatly when the louvre blades are shut.
The shutter frame has inserts which are crafted with high accuracy so that they fit snugly into the frame to hide the screws used to attach the frame to the window.
The craftsmanship even includes considering the quality of the packaging, which is excellent as it includes foam inserts between the control rod and mouse hole, mdf sheets to protect shutter panels, polystyrene and cardboard inserts to prevent items touching together, bespoke boxes to perfectly fit the products they contain and thick cardboard to prevent damage in transit.
All the wooden interior shutters are available for ‘do it yourself’ or as part of a fitted service, but if you have a question why not register and send a message or you can always view further information on craftsmanship in the shutter part section.
