Polywood - Woodland | Back

Description: Solid emulated wood species Plantation Shutter. This unique shutter incorporates solid core extruded wood composite profiles, making it far stronger and more durable than a timber shutter.

This new technology guarantees the performance not offered by natural wood shutters susceptible to weather deterioration and frailty. Looks and feels like real timber species. It cuts, sands and machines just like timber.

Features and Benefits

Engineered Wood Composite

70% real wood & 30% PVC Extruded Polymer solid profile allowing material to be sanded or machined just like timber.

Looks & Feels like real Timber

Coloured to match 3 wood species - Cedar, Beechwood or Aged Timber. No excessive aging or accelerated deterioration as compared to high maintenance timbers. It looks and feels like wood and complies with the ASTM fadometer test criteria.

No Stick or Tilt Rod

Featuring world patented LouverMate actuation mechanism - No staples to work their way loose, no tension rod or screws to work loose, no unsightly stick to detract from the view. Some competitors offer the stick on the side; it's still ugly and unreliable. An important observation is the accuracy of our blade closure compared to the poor uncoordinated closure of others. Less moving parts means less to fail. Refer to separate warranty statement

Solid Extruded Core

Reinforced with Aluminium, this makes blades as straight as an arrow.an important consideration in comparing low quality softwood timber shutters such as Basswood or MDF or hollow vinyl profiles. Refer to blade span tables.

Cellular Structure offers insulating co efficiencies

Offers insulating properties 3 times greater than aluminium offering superb light, noise & temperature insulation. Solid profiles offer proven thermal and structural advantages over hollow Vinyl which have the lowest insulating value of any shutters in the market. Low SGHC. Refer energy ratings.

No Moisture Absorption

Guaranteed against water permeation which certainly cannot be warranted by natural woods. Kitchens, bathrooms and Pool Cabanas will benefit from this inclusion.

Fire Resistant

Flammability and smoke indexes and low spread of flame certification offers design advantages in fire prone zones. Polywood has passed the Flammability test in accordance with UL94 compliant to IEC 60707, 60695-11-10 and 60695-11-20 and ISO 9772 and 9773.

100% Recyclable

Appeals to the environmentally conscience Specifier. It's made of wood grain waste and reclaimable polymers.

Colour Fastness

The natural wood fibres within the co extrusion may fade to a lighter grade in external conditions or if exposed to intense light or heat internally as well. You may request the manufacturers certification to satisfy yurself of the intended installation and conditions.The natural wood colours can be replenished thesame as woods by using the appropriate satin and surface prep.

No Splitting, Chipping, Cracking or Rotting

Unlike some of the cheaper timber shutters on offer such as Basswood or MDF or imported poplar tree woods, we offer an unconditional warranty of performance.

Adds Value to your Property

It's a shared view that a quality Plantation Shutter adds value to a home or project. It is equally agreed that a poorly finished or constructed shutter will detract from the surrounding quality inclusions and deflate the value of that home.

Easy to Clean & Maintain

Wash down, wipe down or feather dust, No solvent based cleaners to be used.

Termite (White Ant) Proof

Apart from this unique timber look composite, only natural Cedar has this character built in as protection against insect boring.

No End Caps

As with natural wood the sawn end grain has a clean and unobtrusive appearance. There are no extraneous end caps, bad edges unlike other vinyl shutters on the market.
