Having pioneered custom-made louvre shutters in South Africa, AMERICAN shutters is the industry leader.
Knowing that a 25 year old achievement does not earn us eternal leader status, innovation is a constant driving force behind all we do. This includes:
Our innovation ensures that our clients have access to best quality products, both classic and contemporary.
With almost 25 years of sound industry experience, AMERICAN shutters has survived and thrived through market trends, economic recessions, competition and an ever- changing social landscape.
Our experience ensures that our clients have peace of mind, knowing our track record and trusting that we will be able to honour our product guarantees and offer future assistance.
Despite the temptation to diversify our product range, we have remained focused on, and specialised in window and door treatments. This unwavering focus ensures that our resources are invested in keeping our shutter and blind ranges up-to-date with technological enhancements, effective and efficient manufacturing and installation processes, leading quality standards, design trends and product development.
Our specialisation ensures that our clients have access to unmatched industry expertise and experience.
Wood is an inherently "green" material; it is also the only major building material that is renewable and sustainable over the long term. Wood also has great insulating qualities, making it energy-efficient.
Our imported and local timber is sourced from sustainable forests, forests using a forest management system that ensures that the amount of production from a forest balances out with the forest's natural production.
AMERICAN shutters also supports Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA); the first and only South African social enterprise that develops, promotes and facilitates greening, climate change action, food security and sustainable natural resource use and management in South Africa.
As a FTFA corporate buyer; we buy trees to be planted and nurtured, on a sustained basis, in areas where they are most needed.
Our Security Shutter range is made from aluminium, which is an infinitely recyclable material, saving natural resources, saving energy and reducing the need for landfill sites.
Our green consciousness ensures that our clients are investing in the improvement of their properties and the planet.
