There are a number of reasons why homeowners choose to install outdoor window shutters – the first being that they provide you with year round use of their entertaining areas and the second being that they provide the home with added security. We use powder coated extruded aluminium in the manufacture of our fixed louvre shutters for outside windows, ensuring that they will stand up to Australian weather conditions whilst continuing to look their best.
Where to Use
As their name suggests, our custom exterior shutter styles is designed exclusively for use outdoors. They can be used on any outdoor area that you desire protection for, from alfresco entertaining areas (including patios, decking and balconies) to various openings (including windows and doors). They can also be used for screening purposes, enabling you to hide unsightly parts of your landscape (such as that ugly air conditioning unit) or nosy neighbours.
Caring for your Shutters
A bonus of choosing to install exterior window shutters is that they will require very little maintenance, meaning that you have more time to enjoy them! Depending on the climate that you live in, shutters for exterior windows should be cleaned every three (for coastal regions) to six months (for in-land urban areas). Mix together a mild detergent and cold or warm water solution, then use it to give the frames and slats a thorough wipe down. This should be more than sufficient to remove grime.

FAQ’s about External Shutters
Are shutters lockable?
Yes, most of our exterior shutters are lockable to ensure that the security of your home is not compromised. The frame can be locked at the top, bottom or as a traditional deadbolt.
Can I have more than 2 panels in an opening?
Yes, there are a few ways to achieve this. The most common is the addition of a vertical member (known as a mullion).
What size shutter blade will work best for me?
Ultimately, this is a matter of personal choice and we have a variety of blade sizes to choose from. The general rule of thumb, however, is a large blade for a larger opening and a narrow blade for a smaller one.
