The types of shutters are perfect for external areas such as alfresco entertaining, BBQ’s and outdoor kitchens, and will add value to your home. Their exceptional strength to weight ratio means that single panels can span up to an impressive 1500mm in width.

In addition to using stainless steel hardware, the shutters are finished with Interpon Powder Coating by AkzoNobel (the global leader in powder coatings and parent company of Dulux) and are available in all Dulux colours and 4 timber-look colours.

Aluminium shutters can be customised to suit all shapes and configurations such as bi-folding, raked windows, sliding and hinged, with the louvres coming in choices of fixed, moveable, or lockable.

Understanding Aluminium Plantation Shutters

Aluminium plantation shutters, known for their strength and durability, have steadily gained popularity in recent years. Known for their superior strength to weight ratio, aluminium shutters offer the homeowner a modern, sleek appeal while being highly resilient to harsh conditions, making them especially suitable for outdoor spaces or high-traffic indoor areas.

The Pros of Aluminium Plantation Shutters

Strength and Durability: Aluminium is a robust and long-lasting material that can withstand harsh weather conditions, including intense heat, heavy rains, and strong winds. This durability makes aluminium shutters a practical choice for both indoor and outdoor applications. Their superior strength to weight ratio also means that aluminium shutters can span significantly larger widths in fixed panel applications without the need for vertical bracing.

Low Maintenance: Unlike timber shutters, aluminium shutters don't warp, peel, or crack, reducing the need for regular maintenance. Most of the time, they only need occasional cleaning with a damp cloth to keep them looking their best.

Variety of Styles and Colours: Aluminium shutters come in a wide array of styles and colours. This variety allows homeowners to match the shutters to the exterior and interior décor of their homes, ensuring a seamless aesthetic appeal.

The Cons of Aluminium Plantation Shutters

Cost: High-quality aluminium shutters can be more expensive than other shutter materials. However, considering their durability and low maintenance, they can be a cost-effective solution in the long run.

Aesthetics: While aluminium shutters offer a sleek, modern look, they may not provide the same warmth and traditional appeal as timber or polymer shutters. This might make them less suitable for homes with a more classic or rustic design.

Conducts Heat: Aluminium can conduct heat, which means the shutters can become hot to the touch if exposed to direct sunlight for long periods. This might make them less suitable for certain climates or specific areas of a home.

In conclusion, aluminium plantation shutters provide a plethora of advantages, including strength, durability, low maintenance, and versatility. While they may not suit every aesthetic preference and can be more expensive initially, their long lifespan and modern appeal make them a worthy consideration for many homeowners.

As with all home improvements, consider your specific needs, preferences, and the unique conditions of your home to determine if aluminium shutters are the perfect fit for your space.
