Basswood

Features:

Basswood shutters are made from trees that come from the tilia family and basswood is also known as linden. These trees are known for their sturdy trunks. Basswood also has an attractive, fine texture, meaning that the finished shutters have a uniform, smooth finish which adds to the beauty of the shutter. The timber is also less likely to bleed or produce excess resin that can affect the finish of the timber (painting, staining etc).

Basswood Shutters Resist Warping

If you’ve always wanted natural wood shutters but have feared that they will get warped over time, simply opt for basswood shutters! Basswood is sturdy and very resistant to warping; it is not easily affected by heat and water. However, you do need to remember that no timber is warp-proof – basswood may still warp over time but it is much less likely to, and will take much longer to do so.

For north or south facing windows, basswood shutters may be not a good solution due to Australia high UV may shorten the product life. You may consider using our PVC reinforced shutters instead.

Bi-Fold

For large windows or doors, bi-fold may be a perfect solution, you can fold two panels or up to 4 panels to one side of window or door, to gain a clear view. With a top mount track, and bottom glide, you will have smooth open and close operation

Bi Fold Plantation Shutters make a wonderful addition to any home. These shutters can be used for extra wide openings, allowing you to add a door where you normally couldn’t. With their classic and cultured look, they can also be used to hide unsightly screen doors, like room dividers giving your home the elegant style you’ve been looking for.

Sliding Door

Sliding is only applicable for large door where you can get two or more panels sliding on a top mounted runner track with bottom glide

Many people are looking for something like this these days for their patio doors and sliding glass doors.

Barn Door

Barn door is a not a new thing. Its a good replacement for normal door. More attractive and control over light and air flow.

We offer runner track mounted right above your door frame, with black finish which is perfect match to a white finished shutter door

Two runners sit on a track, you can easily slide door left and right.

For large door opening, two panels can be used

If you door is 90cm wide you need a 180cm clearance above the door frame for track installation

If you door is over 180cm, you need 360cm clearance

Barn s `hutter can be also used on windows, as long as you have enough clearance above the window for long track

Due to heavy weight, the track has to be mounted on the wall stud. In case no stud behind assembly hole, we can manually place a timber between wall and track, but it does cost extra also you may wish to paint the timer to give a good match.
