NOT ALL SHUTTERS ARE CREATED EQUAL
5 Tips For Evaluating Timber Plantation Shutters
- IT’S NOT ONLY THE TYPE OF TIMBER. IT’S WHAT’S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS.
Highprofile Classic painted timber plantation shutters are 100% Poplar or Basswood. Poplar is an even-grained timber measuring 540 on the Janka hardness scale, while Basswood is light weight, strong, durable with a consistent colour and grain.
Often shutters sold as ‘Basswood’ are actually Laminated Veneer Lumber or a thin Basswood veneer (30%) wrapped around laminated strips of other timbers. Always confirm a timber plantation shutter is 100% of your preferred timber species before buying.
- HAND-SELECTION IS KEY.
One of the key features of a stained timber shutter, is the luxurious look of the natural grain. Our stained Highprofile Classic timber shutters are made from 100% Basswood, which is hand-selected, to ensure even grain appearance every time. When you’re buying stained timber shutters, ensure that vendor is involved in selecting every piece of wood and can ensure you’re getting a functional and beautiful timber product.
- NOT ALL PAINTS ARE THE SAME.
Highprofile timber plantation shutters are finished in quality 2-pac polyurethane paint, used in kitchens and high-end cabinetry. Other shutters may be painted with an inferior Nitro Cellulosic paint which is prone to streaking and chipping. Highprofile’s 2-pac paint has been developed to have a flawless finish that is not only attractive, but durable and easy to maintain.
- IF IT’S 100% TIMBER, IT’S 100% ORGANIC AND RENEWABLE.
Highprofile timber plantation shutters are made from 100% timber, which is recyclable, biodegradable, requires less energy to produce than other inorganic materials and helps sequester carbon back into the environment. In addition, our unique construction methods result in a more efficient yield from the tree meaning less waste and more sustainable production.
