MDF Shutters in Essex & Suffolk
Updated: Feb 16
Plantation Shutters are increasingly becoming the window covering of choice in the UK and the cost of having your home kitted out with shutters is becoming more affordable. Part of the reason for this is due to an increasing range of materials used to manufacture Plantation Shutters. We purchase our Shutters from the largest manufacturer in world, this is because they consistently produce the best quality Shutters on the market.
Our MDF Plantation Shutter range is extremely popular, it has it’s limitation and it has it’s benefits. MDF as a material is very stable and isn’t prone to warping or splitting like other natural materials, it will withstand variations in temperature very well and is particularly strong. Our MDF Shutters have an LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) core, an outer MDF body and a tough polymer coating making it remarkably durable. It is finished with 7 coats of UV resistant paint available in 5 shades of white and creams.
There are occasions where MDF Shutters are not suitable. Although MDF is very strong, it cannot withstand moisture and is therefore not appropriate for Bathrooms and other areas prone to high moisture. We offer a ABS Vinyl Bathroom Shutter which is ideal for this. MDF Shutters are heavier than their hardwood siblings and therefore have limitations on Patio Doors and very large windows, this can often be overcome by installing ‘T-Posts” or a Tracking system, but on some occasions we will recommend a lighter wood Shutter.
The MDF range comes in 5 shades of Whites and Creams. Pure White, Silk White, Pearl, Bright White & Creamy. If you are looking for any other colour or stain MDF Shutters are not for you.
But don’t be fooled, some of our competitors make remarks such as “Cheap Quality” or “Inferior Product”, this simply is not true. We have had the misfortune of sourcing our Shutters from suppliers with cheaper Hardwood and Vinyl alternatives and we were flabbergasted by the poor craftsmanship and lack of consistency with their product. Make no mistake, regardless of materials, our Shutters are hand crafted by experienced workman and consistently produce the best Plantation Shutters money can buy.
