Solid shutters have historically been used in Victorian homes as a practical shield against noise and a deterrent for burglars. They protected Victorian glass which was very thin and could easily be broken by a stray bird, which could then damage the interior of the house. Today, solid shutters are still used within Victorian houses as an important way to retain this heritage aesthetic. Our interior shutters are popular in Victorian houses because of this rich history, but also because they are bi-folded to allow complete opening or separation when required.
AVAILABLE IN MANY DIFFERENT RANGES
We offer solid shutters across our Phoenix, Portland and Vancouver Ranges. Just as they did in Victorian times, solid shutters provide an effective barrier for security and against noise pollution. The shuttering of the Victorian age was historically made from pine, however over the years this has deteriorated, meaning a need for new Victorian style solid shutters.
We offer two types of bi-fold shutters – Solid Raised and Solid Base/Louvre Top. The solid raised shuttering is 12mm thick centre panels with 28.6mm x 41mm stiles. Our second type, the solid base/louvre top, is similar but with top louvres, making it suitable for sliding partitions and French Windows with solid bases.
