Whilst the timber is light, it’s strong and will not crack or split when nails or screws are used and best known as Paulownia Shutters.
Built to last
Paulownia wood has a fine and knot-free grain making it the perfect wood for painting or staining. Although it’s a hardwood it is approx. 1/3 lighter in weight when compared to other hardwoods which makes it an excellent choice for Tier on Tier or wider openings. It’s great for the environment too. A deep-rooted tree with a well-developed root system, it will yield one cubic meter of hardwood in 8 years, after which a new stem will shoot. A single plantation can, therefore, be harvested several times, providing a sustainable, renewable source of timber. Whilst the timber is light, it’s strong and will not crack or split when nails or screws are used.
Any minor adjustments needed in frame sizes are easily corrected with a simple plane or sand back and touch up with paint. The Paulownia wood range is best if you’re fitting large windows due to its lightweight nature.
The smoothest of finishes
This range offers the full range of C&C options – 13 paints, 11 Wood stains, 4 Limewash finishes, Solid Shaker & Solid Raised shutters, plus this range can be manufactured in every shape possible.
The Limewash finish clearly shows the grain of the wood through the paint. This range could be described as having a nautical/beach vibe. If your customers décor choice is rustic or shabby chic or they request a driftwood appearance, then this could be the shutter for them.
The Paulownia shutter has a different style, Clearview Rod, to our other ranges and is designed to allow slat operation without strain on the wood. The range does offer all 4 Rod control options. Central, Offset, Clearview and Hidden. Available in a full range of paint colours and design options, you can offer this in custom colours too*.
