For our timber plantation shutters we use Basswood, Paulownia or Poplar timber because of there strenght whilst still being light weight they also have straight grains, these are the characteristics which make these timbers ideal for stained and painted timber shutters they are also faster growing and more environmentally friendly compared to the older choice of cedar. The timber shutter blades shape is a modern aerofoil with a choice of sizes, 63 mm, 89 mm, and 115 mm widths, to match your design and personal requirements. 115 mm blade gives a larger opening between the blade thus allowing for more viewing space between each blade. The standard 89 mm blade has the distinguished look of shutters which people recognise. The smaller 63 mm blade is ideal for proportional sized openings or narrow reveals. There is also a choice of control bars, Hidden, Face, or Centre Face Control. There are several standard colours with variable shades of whites and creams or stained timber plantation shutters use the best straight-grained timber, hand-picked to bring out the timbers natural beauty, they come in a choice of coloured stains.
