TIPS THAT WILL GUIDE WHEN LOOKING FOR QUALITY WOODEN SHUTTERS ONLINE Do you know that…
The air in bathrooms, kitchens and laundries are naturally laden with moisture, leading to deterioration of wooden shutters installed at such places. The moisture harms the wooden shutters by making the wood change its shape by warping, or making it soft by loss of hardness, or changing its color by staining. To prevent such unwanted damage due to moisture, a man-made fabricated product known as Woodbury’ is utilized to make shutters. A Woodbury plantation shutter consists of a timber core, specially coated with a synthetic material ABS, which successfully blocks moisture and prevents any damage.

The core is made of high-quality timber, which is very hard. The grains of the timber have no distinct direction or pattern and the color is mid-brown. This makes it an excellent surface for coating with ABS. It can also be coated with UV acrylic paint of any color to suit the surrounding décor.
COATING OF ABS
ABS is made with the synthetic monomer Acrylonitrile, which is combined with another monomer Styrene, resulting in a synthetic compound known as Acrylonitrile-Styrene. This resultant compound is further combined with another synthetic compound known as Polybutadiene Rubber, resulting in a highly complex synthetic compound known as Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). Due to Acrylonitrile-Styrene, ABS acquires the stiffness and strength of plastic. Again, due to Polybutadiene Rubber, ABS gains the tough quality of rubber. With such exceptional qualities, ABS is the perfect choice to prevent moisture, provide insulation against electricity, give enhanced hardness, and confer a superior gloss. However, ABS cannot withstand the harsh outdoor environment and thus, Woodbury plantation shutters are used for indoor purposes only.
NO WARPING OR COLOR FADING
Due to the ABS coating, the shutters acquire a plastic like rigidity and does not warp. The surface of the shutter cannot be stained so there is no fading of color.
Woodbury plantation shutters are designed and made for strength and durability. Strong structural joints like mortise-tenon joints make the shutters extremely strong. The louvers are made to attain high-tensile strength by placing internal bars, so that tension is uniformly adjusted and no louver can come out loose.
On-site installation is very easy. Factory pre-installed hinges and magnets ensures no additional parts are required.
SUITS ANY DÉCOR
The classy look of the shutters goes well with any décor. Further customization is also possible by painting the shutter surfaces with any color that suits the décor. The paint can be acrylic paint containing Ultra Violet ray inhibitors, which enhances fastness of color, smooth uniform finish, and high-quality gloss.
Made with a very high standard of quality and with fine materials, the Woodbury plantation shutters are ideal window coverings for moisture-laden places like kitchens, laundries and bathrooms. Additionally, they provide privacy, a sense of safety, and block the sun, thereby keeping the room cool. A cooler room also helps in not running the air conditioner all the time, which results in savings in energy bills.
