Southeast Asia is home to the exquisite Paulownia tree, from which we get a hardwood that has been garnering attention for its fast-growing and sustainable nature. The tree has the unique ability to regenerate from its existing roots, making it a reliable option for an array of products around the globe. Paulownia wood is exceptionally adaptable and used in furniture manufacturing, making toys, musical instruments, construction, and packaging.
A Paulownia product that has been gaining popularity in recent years is Paulownia interior window shutters. These shutters boast a natural, fine-grained appearance that is aesthetically pleasing and resistant to warping. Indoor Paulownia shutters are ideal for all windows and shutters, including café style, full height, tier-on tier, and French doors.

Paulownia shutters are an excellent choice for customers who prioritise environmental sustainability. This is because the Paulownia tree grows rapidly and can be harvested every 7 to 10 years, allowing reforestation efforts to occur relatively quickly. Moreover, the Paulownia tree can thrive in challenging conditions and regenerate from its roots multiple times. Additionally, the tree has the added benefit of being nearly knot-free, reducing costs and minimising waste.
Paulownia hardwood is an incredibly lightweight wood, weighing half of pine and just a third of oak. With such an exceptional weight-to-strength ratio, paulownia shutters are excellent for covering large spaces like patio doors or bay windows. The lightweight nature of Paulownia makes it easy to handle while still delivering ample coverage and protection. Overall, paulownia shutters are a wise investment for anyone wanting to improve the aesthetics and functionality of their living space at an affordable price.
Strong and Long Lasting
When it comes to strength, don’t misjudge lightweight materials. Paulownia hardwood has the highest weight-to-strength ratio of any wood on the planet. It has a modulus of rupture (MOR) strength of 5,740, more than twice the strength of balsa wood – another well-known light but strong hardwood. So, if you’re looking for a material that can withstand the test of time without weighing you down, Paulownia shutters could be precisely what you’re looking for.
The natural properties of paulownia wood make it an exceptional choice for shutters. Its remarkable insulation capabilities stem from its low thermal conductivity, which maintains heat inside the home during colder months and keeps rooms cool during the summer. Additionally, its user-friendly rod system allows for easy opening and closing of the shutters, further enhancing the wood’s thermal conductivity. Paulownia wood, with its unparalleled durability, stunning style, and exceptional comfort, stands out as the optimal choice of wood for shutters.
Our Paulownia shutters are specially treated to reduce the likelihood of scratching. When homeowners open or close their shutters, sometimes rings or other metal objects they may be holding or wearing can scratch the shutter’s surface. These scratch-resistant shutters are extremely low maintenance as there is less chance of having to remedy scratches, and they only require the occasional dusting or wipe with a cloth.
