Thinking about adopting the beauty of Internal Window Shutters? Westral Shutters are made from a large range of materials, from natural timbers to a selection of synthetic products. Each material type is chosen for its individual characteristics, whether it be durability, warmth, grain pattern, colour or suitability to special environments. All materials used are of the highest quality, and are sure to add value and character to the home.
All timbers used are sourced from trees planted and grown specifically for the purpose of manufacturing shutters and blinds. It is kiln dried to suit the air moisture content of the intended destination before manufacture to ensure stability upon installation. Quarter-sawn timbers are used in the natural timber shutters. In quarter-sawing, the wood is harvested from tree logs in a way that makes it less susceptible to inherent cupping, twisting and warping. Cuts are made parallel to the wood’s medullary rays instead of across, which give the wood strength and stability.
Like any investment, only shutters of exceptional quality will provide long term value and home appreciation. Westral’s Plantation Shutters place emphasis on product design, quality, range and value pricing. When design challenges occur, Westral Plantation Shutters provides the solution.
