Shutters (or Plantation shutters) can be made from a variety of materials, and can be either manufactured in Australia or imported. Australian made shutters have a significantly shorter lead time as well as other benefits, depending on which product is selected.
Luxaflex PolySatin Shutters
The Luxaflex PolySatin shutters are our favourite, enjoying the longest warranty period on the finished surface (20 years internal or external use), are Australian made and are fully waterproof. Incorporating an anti-static property during the manufacturing process that helps repel dirt, they are the lowest maintenance shutter that we know of, and are simple to remove from their hinges enabling easy cleaning if required. The special UV stabilised surface of the PolySatin also means that stains cannot adhere to the surface and can be cleaned off easily (even permanent marker pen!). With hardly any VOC’s, they are also the child friendly option.
We feel they are the ideal product for our tropical climate.
