Why Not PVC Shutters?
In Australia where the differences between seasonal & even daily temperatures can be extreme, this can be a big problem particularly for larger panels where PVC panel components may shrink, expand, bow and twist. This ultimately can lead to distortion of the panels which will affect their appearance & functionality. Often in response to this PVC shutter manufactures will add aluminium inserts to the components. The inserts may add stiffness & some stability to the panels, but it does not prevent twisting & makes the panels heavier again.
PVC shutters are heavier & more flexible than shutters made from wood & engineered wood composite materials. As most shutter installations are hinged this presents a problem over time as the heavier PVC shutters can sag & twist under their own weight & eventually this will affect the opening and closing of the panels causing the louvres to scrape on the inside surface of the stiles. Note this is of particular concern in the Australian market as generally, our homes have larger window and door openings.
Apart from the lack of performance & appearance aspects of PVC shutters, Norman doesn’t use PVC to make their shutters because there are more suitable & environmentally sustainable materials available. Namely, responsibly managed wood-based materials. In some of our shutter programs, wood-based materials are used in combination with higher grade and recyclable plastics such as ABS and Polypropylene.
Wood Is Good
Responsibly managed wood products are renewable, recyclable, waste efficient, biodegradable and non-toxic. Wood is also particularly energy efficient in production and use, and as such can play a major role in combatting global warming.
Shutters made from wood are the real deal! They are not pretending to be someone else, they are authentic, look beautiful, stable, environmentally friendly, sustainable and most importantly trouble-free.
Practical & Aesthetical
Whether contemporary or traditional, painted or stained wood adds classic elegance to a room. It ages gracefully over the years developing depth of character and interest. It improves insulation and helps to warm up a room more quickly, warm to touch & provides a robust and maintenance-free surface. Wood is Good!
Wood shutters are lighter, which minimises the amount of sag & twisting. Reinforced Engineered wood stiles have multiple layers of hardwood veneer bonded together, strengthening the core of the stile & providing a lifetime of durability & stability. Our shutters are joined by mortise & tenon joints which will help keep your shutters square & true guaranteeing long term functionality. Wood isn't just good, it's the best.
