Types of Timber Shutters Available
Window shutters are made from a variety of different materials ranging from PVC, Aluminium, and of course natural timbers, each providing a different look or purpose.
Each of our timber shutters are made up of 100% of the same species of timber and come in either a 2-pac painted finish or a natural stained finish.
There are two types of timber species that we use and both are 100% organic, renewable and only sourced from sustainable forestry. The best type of hardwood timber shutters you should go for are made from Poplar or Basswood, which are both well known for durability, strength and produces a stunning finish when painted or stained respectively.
Painted Timber Shutters
Our painted timber shutters are made from 100% Poplar which provides an ‘even-grain’ finish and measures an impressive 540 on the Janka hardness scale. The strength of our timber shutters are due to the makeup being all one species and made specifically to excel in our humid, Brisbane climate.
The secret to our success is in the paint!
Our painted shutters are finished in the same high-quality 2-pack paint that you will find in top end designer kitchens and cabinetry. This not only contributes to an immaculate and flawless finish but also provides superior hardness and flexibility to the shutters, which is a must in QLD.
Our painted timber shutters come with a 15-year structural warranty so you can be sure you are getting the best quality product money can buy.
Stained Timber Shutters
Our stained timber shutters are made from 100% Basswood which offers a magnificent and luxurious, natural-grain finish. Every piece of wood that becomes a stained timber shutter is physically hand selected, so we can ensure an ‘even grain’ finish to our customers every time.
Our stained timber shutters are made from 100% organic and sustainable natural timber. We take pride in our unique production methods that result in maximum efficiency and minimal wastage from the raw timber we work with.
Whether you choose painted poplar timber shutters or opt for the natural warmth of the stained timber basswood shutters, you can be assured that at Brisbane Shutters, we only provide the very best quality materials and workmanship that money can buy.
Timber Shutters: The Truth
Timber shutters are a beautiful addition to any home. They immediately bring a sense of inviting and warmth to a room and add character. They also last longer than shutters made out of PVC. There are a lot of shutter suppliers out there, however, are you certain that the products they sell are, in fact, solid timber and not just laminated timber veneer? Unfortunately, this is, in fact, true of the majority of cases. But, what’s the difference, and why should that matter anyway?
Well, here at Brisbane Shutters, we come from the construction and manufacturing industries and with 30 years experience in homes across Australia, we know that a laminated timber veneer is the equivalent of the emperor’s new clothes.
There’s no real substance there and in the end, you will feel let down. You see, when it comes to these kinds of shutters, disintegration and distortion is inevitable because there is only about 30% of the product made from basswood. So, what you have bought is not, in fact, a solid piece of wood, but instead, a whole mess of different timbers laminated together and wrapped up in paper-thin basswood veneer.

What To Keep in Mind
Buyer BEWARE! Not all timber shutters on the market are made equal!
Many shutters that are advertised as Basswood Shutters by big-name companies are not actually solid timber. They are actually laminated timber veneer shutters!
What this means is that instead of being made from a solid piece of timber, the shutter is actually made up of laminated strips of a variety of different timbers, and then wrapped in a paper-thin veneer of basswood timber. With this type of construction, the shutter contains only approximately 30% of basswood and is prone to a life of distortion and disintegration.
By choosing a painted or stained timber shutter from Brisbane Shutters you can rest assured knowing your shutters are made of 100% hardwood timber, made from one solid piece of timber and of the same species, and made as tough as they come to ensure they last the test of time.
Run for the hills if you see shutters made from laminated timber veneer!
