Woodbury Shutters are ‘Faux Wood Shutters’ constructed from Artwood – a man-made product developed for, but not restricted to, moisture area applications. It is made using a timber core, and is encased in a synthetic product called ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene).
Faux wood ‘Woodbury’ Shutters are useful for high-moisture areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundries but please be aware that although this product is moisture resistant, it is not waterproof. It cannot be used in exterior applications or in situations where it would be subjected to long periods of water contact.
- Colour: Woodbury Shutters are available in a range of 6 standard paint colours. Because Artwood is a synthetic product, it is unable to be stained.
- Colour Fastness: As Artwood is painted only, it is not susceptible to colour change.
- Hardness: Artwood is a very hard wearing material, and is more resistant to knocks and bumps than timber.
- Warping: Artwood has a synthetic casing and is not susceptible to warping as timber is. In addition, the timber used within the components of each panel is laminated, giving it greater strength and resistance to sagging.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a product used to manufacture common household goods, such as telephones, helmets and piping. It is made by copolymerizing (combining two or more monomers) Acrylonitrile and styrene. Acrylonitrile and styrene are dissolved in polybutadiene rubber which allows these monomers to form chains by attaching to the rubber molecules. The advantage of ABS is that it combines the strength and rigidity of the Acrylonitrile and styrene polymers with the toughness of the polybutadiene rubber.
