Have You Considered Plantation Shutters?

30 September 2022

At Sunblinds & Curtains, we’re known for supplying customers throughout Adelaide and the surrounding area with top-class window coverings, both indoor and outdoor, for residential properties and commercial ones. Our products include timelessly classic plantation shutters, the benefits of which we covered in an earlier blog entry.

The purpose of this piece isn’t to cover that same ground but rather to emphasise why plantation shutters are such a great choice for Australian conditions, and also to go into detail about the specific options available within our range of Loov shutters. Have you considered plantation shutters? After reading this, we think you just might…

Plantation Shutters are Perfectly Suited to Life Down Under

We get our fair share of hot weather Down Under and plantation shutters are one of the very best window coverings for blocking out light and heat, especially in summer. At the same time, they are also excellent for admitting any breeze that’s available to help cool the adjoining rooms, thanks to their chunky slats.

Timber Plantation Shutters

We use the Loov collection of plantation shutters from MYT Shutters, who are committed to ecologically friendly manufacturing. There are four varieties of these attractive and extremely functional window coverings, so we’ll begin with timber plantation shutters.

Loov.timber are timber plantation shutters made entirely of basswood. For those wanting a real feeling of luxury in the window department, it’s hard to go past the wood option.

Aluminium Plantation Shutters

Moving on from timber plantation shutters, we have Loov.aluminium. If you’re after the strongest, sturdiest option for outdoor use, then these aluminium plantation shutters are for you. Composed of T5 aluminium, they are safe and secure, yet still elegant.

Polymer Plantation Shutters

Loov.poly are polymer plantation shutters composed of high-quality polymer. These could be the option for you if, for example, you are looking to install shutters in an area that’s prone to dampness. The polymer shutters will have no problem handling extra moisture in the air. Needless to say, they are also good for the more humid parts of this country.

Hybrid Plantation Shutters

Hybrid plantation shutters are like a cross between timber plantation shutters and polymer plantation shutters. It could be said that Loov.hybrid give the “best of both worlds” in terms of appearance and resilience. If you’re tossing up between the look/feel of timber and the versatility of polymer, then this is likely the option for you.

Whichever sort of plantation shutters you ultimately decided upon, they are available in a range of colours, styles and finishes. And, of course, they will be made to measure to fit your windows and look fantastic!
