Custom made Western Red Cedar timber shutters by Newport are an Australian made product, utilizing first grade air-dried Western Red Cedar sourced from North America. This timber is renowned for structural stability and therefore allows for a broader manufacturing specification – for example Brisbane shutters & panels can be made wider or taller than usual, without requiring a mid rail. It is very lightweight with excellent thermal and acoustic properties.
These Plantation Shutters’ panels can be made to suit a variety of shapes including;
portholes, raked, archways and sunbursts.
Traditionally mounted in the centre of the panel – side mount, or concealed tiltbars are also popular choices – allowing easier cleaning and a less interrupted view. Tiltrods are manufactured from select hardwood and secured to the shutter blades by stainless steel staples. This system was developed for commercial applications and is now available on every Newport shutter in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Available in centre, side or concealed mounts.
Available in painted, stained, limed, oiled or clear lacquered finishes – customised to your exact decorating requirements.
