With international partnerships ensuring the best raw material and internationally benchmarked manufacturing processes and technology; our manufacturing experience and expertise as well as our consistent innovation are guaranteed.
To ensure that our products are suitable to South African conditions, all the timber used in the manufacture of our custom shutters is hand selected and dried using a specialised Prescription Wood Conditioning technique which emulates the environmental conditions of the location where the shutters are to be installed, thereby reducing post installation shrinking and swelling. Significant to South African conditions, the timber is also guaranteed to be resistant to beetle attack.
As a result of our longstanding international partnerships, our manufacturing facilities, equipment, technology and processes are world-class and internationally benchmarked. Our timber is quarter-sawn giving our shutters remarkable strength and stability, mortise and tenon joints are used to withstand stress and twisting forces, our exclusive core-reinforced engineered stiles ensure robustness and durability, our rabbet stiles offer extra light control and privacy and marine grade stainless steel is used for tilt rod connectors.
AMERICAN shutters source and learn from the global industry then integrate this knowledge, technology and skill into South Africa. A perfect case study for this is our Decowood shutter range. Our most popular, eco-friendly and cost-effective range which was initially only imported is now also custom-made locally, creating employment opportunities and boosting our local economy.
