Decowood shutters are made from engineered wood panels know as MDF (medium density fiberboard) coated in a patented polypropylene finish. Real wood in an advanced state. MDF is made from small wood particles, refined into individual fibers and pressed together with polymers under high heat and pressure to make an extremely durable solid panel. Among the most eco-friendly materials available, engineered wood involves very little waste, with up to 95% of every tree utilized. Made from the wood of rapid-growth trees, Decowood shutters enable tree replenishment at an extremely accelerated rate.
Timber sourced for Decowood shutters come from FSC Certified forests.
Decowood shutters have a better consistency and durabilty than a solid wood shutter, while providing freedom from defects and other imperfections that may be found in other wood products.
Better than vinyl and PVC shutters that are susceptible to deforming, Decowood shutters can withstand even the highest desert temperatures to ensure long term performance in a variety of environments.
By using reinforced engineered wood stiles, we employ a proprietary process that bonds multiple layers of wood to provide an intense level of durability and structural integrity. The rabbet (overlapping) stiles used also improves light block out.
Traditionally used in furniture and building construction, mortise and tenon joints are designed to withstand the shear stress and racking forces applied when operating a shutter. This makes the mortise and tenon an ideal joint for shutters.
Polypropylene is highly versatile and known for its extreme durability. This protective coating has been verified to be environmentally safe, releasing no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) into the air, and meets the most stringent international standards.
UV inhibitors in the finish also protect against colour fading and yellowing, which means your shutter will look like new for years to come.
