See pictures. For Timber we have 6 colours available. We have matched our own 2x white colours with Dulux paint “Vivid White 1W” and “Antique White U.S.A. 16W”. Please visit your local paint outlet for a colour swatch. Colours may vary slightly on different materials. New stain colour range coming soon.

This is how you would like your shutters to hinge/swing. If you only want a single panel for example a small window you would select L (Left hinge) or R (Right hinge). T posts or double hinges (bi fold without track) can be used if you would like more than two panels within the one frame.

This is the depth/width of the blade. The most common blade is the 89mm, we also have a larger 114mm blade available on request (Phone call confirmation required to discuss security clearances to ensure the blades will not hit any obstacles).

Traditionally a centre mounted tilt rod is used. The tilt rod sits on the front of the shutters in the centre to move the blades together. For a cleaner more modern look a hidden tilt rod (tilt bar) is used. The hidden tilt rod is concealed at the rear of the shutter on the same side as the hinges. Hidden tilt rod is automatically chosen for any bi fold orders.

Think of this like a picture frame only the shutter panels are the picture. No Frame (Hang strip) Our favourite style for inside mount shutters. Hang strip design means the shutter panels will meet your window frames and architraves allowing an extra 42mm+ height and width of light through, if you already have architraves you do not necessarily need the extra detail of an L frame. See how to install guide for more detail on the hang strip style. Small L-Rebate, has a small rebate that follows around the entire frame, due to its sleek size this is the most common used when mounting inside the window frames. Medium L-Rebate is slightly larger, commonly used when mounting to the outside of your architraves where clearances for blade tilting could be an issue. Fixed U Channel is a top and bottom channeled guide for your shutters to tuck under the top channel and sit in bottom channel. The blades can open as normal although the panel does not hinge it is fixed inside the channel. The panels can be removed easily by lifting upward and over the bottom U. These work great as room dividers for the same look on both sides or areas were panels cannot be hinged. Z Frame, most commonly used if you do not have any architraves for your opening. Most common in bathrooms, your tiler can tile up to the window instead of using architraves and your plantation shutters with a Z frame can be installed directly over the tiled edge.

Only necessary for shutters over 1600mm in height. A divider rail is used to increase the structural integrity of the panels. Some windows have a frame or a window winder you may be able to line the divider rail up with. Please provide the height of the divider rail from the bottom to where you wish the centre of the divider to be (Divider is roughly 75mm in height).

See image. If you are mounting your shutters inside the window frame choose inside mount. If the shutters are to be mounted outside the window frame select outside mount. This option ensures we only make standard height and width deductions of 3mm for inside mount shutters.

Height from top to bottom of opening. Do not make any dedutions supply smallest. Tip: check if opening is square.

Width from left to right of opening. Do not make any dedutions supply smallest width. Tip: check if opening is square.

Used to identify the box’s when they arrive (You may only order 1 shutter although when you order multiple shutters this is very handy!). Examples, Master Bedroom 1, Living 1, Front Living 2, Main Bath 1, Ensuite 1 etc

Purchased a shutter approximately 1 month ago, it was so easy to install, and looks great. We were so impressed with the shutter, that we are now purchasing more to do the rest of our rooms.
