Shutters for windows by Shuttercraft. Whether you’re looking for a contemporary or more classic look we have a style to suit every window.
At Shuttercraft Bristol, we believe that the best quality window coverings is provided by principles such as:
Wood used in S:CRAFT shutters is carefully storied in computer controlled facilities. Wood is kiln dried twice, taking into account the climate of the country where the shutters will be exported. This customised drying process reduces the likelihood that the wood will warp. S:CRAFT also does not compromise on the thickness of the louvers, which also makes our shutters less susceptible to warping.
S:CRAFT uses engineered stiles, which are the side bars of the shutter panels. Unlike other shutters where these pieces are produced as a solid component, S:CRAFT cuts the wood into strips that are then bonded together in layers. This construction provides greater strength by breaking capillaries through the wood where moisture can enter and travel. Not only do engineered stiles ensure our shutters are durable and remain attractive over many years, they also prevent warping.
Thickness is a key feature of only the best quality window shutters. Such a benefit further minimises the chances of warping. To aid in the visual component of our dressings, each shutter is given six separate coats of paint or stain. This is then sealed in with a top coating that resists harmful ultraviolet rays; lessening the fading and physical damages caused by the sun. These techniques enable our shutters to be as bright and stunning as the day that they were purchased.
High-quality marine staples are use within all of our S:CRAFT shutters. Stainless steel resists corrosion and is highly durable. By using these accessories to attach the tilt rods to the shutters, a superior level of longevity can be enjoyed. This is further enhanced with the addition of a separate sealant that is placed over these staples.
Rather than attaching window shutters to battens, we supply S:CRAFT plantation shutters with a large choice of frames. This allows you to select frames that match the style of your shutters and the overall look of your space. They also allow for a much stronger finish, as well as a great fit for easy installations. Not only do we supply the best quality window shutters, we also provide you with fine frames to deliver a sophisticated look and finish.
Every aspect of their construction makes S:CRAFT products the best quality window shutters you can buy. S:CRAFT shutters are built with mortise and tenon joints between the rail and stile. These types of joints are stronger than dowel joints used with other wooden shutters. They also help minimise movement between the rail and the stile, which reduces the chance of paint or stain finishes cracking. The result is stunning shutters that maintain their aesthetic beauty over time.
Our shutters boast high quality marine-grade stainless steel staples that look great and ensure optimal performance. These staples are used to attach the shutters to tilt rods. The tips of the staples are finished with a coating of a durable bonding agent to make sure they stay secure.
Every S:CRAFT product is made a state-of-the-art facilities to ensure optimal quality. At the same time, each of our shutters boast hand-crafted finishes. S:CRAFT shutters benefit from a proprietary paint system that has been specifically developed for its shutters. Each shutter is finished with no less than six coats of paint or stain. The final layer is a clear lacquer with a UV additive that protects the shutter from fading and discolouration.
