Our Dorchester Shutters are made from Empress wood, a fast-growing, close-grained hardwood shutter. Empress wood offers style and reassurance as well as great value. It is a managed and certified sustainable hardwood with good availability, which means we can buy the timber very reasonably and use it to make affordable wood plantation shutters at a very similar price to an MDF product.
Panels are manufactured to the highest standards using mortise and tenon joints to ensure prolonged quality and durability and engineered laminated stiles to prevent warping.
Colours: Dorchester Shutters are available in a choice of 20 finishes.
These are full height single panels, which if over a certain height are strengthened with a horizontal divider rail, thus allowing independent movement of the slats in the top and bottom section.
These are panels that cover the bottom section of the window only, allowing light and privacy simultaneously.
Tier-on-Tier allows the top tier of panels to swing open independently from the bottom set, thus giving the choice of either total privacy or allowing full light to enter through the top window, leaving the bottom section closed if desired.
Solid shutters are the ultimate traditional shutter, providing a wonderfully old fashioned look to a window and an added security feature. Solids are also available with a slatted top half.
Our custom-made shaped shutters are designed to be a practical and stylish solution to the most difficult window. Each shutter is individually manufactured to the customers own specification.
