Shutter Materials

Antigua

Is made from high quality MDF covered and patented in polymer coating. This is a stylish but affordable entry level shutter solution in 5 popular shades of White. This style is best suited to small to medium size windows due MDF being heavier so not ideal for large expanses. The Antigua range comes in a wide range of louvre sizes from 47mm to 114mm the larger the louvre the more light will be let in.

MDF is not suitable for bathrooms/wet rooms or rooms with high moisture as this material is susceptible to deterioration if exposed to moisture. We can advise of alternatives.

Antigua is best suited to square and rectangle windows, but will cater for a linear shape such as triangles. We can advise on shutters for special shapes and otherwise hard to cover areas. Antigua comes with a decorative bead design, check out the Sumatra range for more style options.

Bermuda

Bermuda shutters are made from robust MDF frames and ABS plastic louvers which makes the panels lighter than the Antigua range, so the panels can be wider. This high quality plastic is more cost effective than real hardwood and available in 30 different frame styles and 28 contemporary colours giving a frame to suit every window including bays.

Due to the polypropylene sleeve this shutter is very hard wearing, it also protects the shutter from temperature changes which reduces the likelihood of warping.

Curved shapes are not possible but angled shapes including octagon, hexagon and triangle are all possible.
Bermuda more closely resembles the finish of real hardwood shutters & with a large number of styles to choose from our Bermuda range offers both hard wearing and value for money
