Yes, one need only provide a colour sample for matching purposes. Our shutters are available in any custom mixed paint or stain colour of your choice.

On completion of every installation we provide a set of operating and cleaning instructions. Shutters are easy to keep clean using a feather duster and a damp cloth for any sticky marks.

Yes with our Perfect Tilt system louvres can be operated with a remote control. Motors can be driven either by battery only or solar charged rechargeable battery system.

It depends on the type of installation. If hinged within a frame the shutters will offer virtually full block-out. If operating on a track system there will be a slight glow along the top where the shutters meet the track and along the bottom where the shutters meet the floor channel. An added feature of our shutters is our rabbet (half lap) stile that offers excellent privacy and blocks out light between the hinged panels.

Yes, one can opt to have bolts fitted on a bi-folding system or sash locks to a hinging system. Our aluminium Security Shutters come with various bolt and key locks for maximum security.

No, we use premium timber which is hand selected and dried using a specialised Prescription Wood Conditioning technique. This technique emulates the environmental conditions of the location where the shutters will be installed which reduces pre installation shrinking and swelling. Our shutters have reinforced engineered stiles with multiple layers of wood bonded together to achieve maximum stability in the core of the stile and ensure a robust and durable shutter. Our louvers are manufactured from quarter sawn wood to ensure stability against twisting and warping.

Our warranty on our shutters is between 3 to 5 years depending on the range selected, please request our warranty schedule for the full details.

Borer beetle attack has become more prevalent in areas that were previously free of infestation and certain timbers commonly used in the manufacture of shutters are more prone to beetle attack. All timbers used by AMERICAN shutters are resistant to borer attack.
Our shutters can be manufactured in a wide range of specialised shapes all with functioning louvres. You can have shutters made for arched windows and doors or for irregular shapes like circles and triangles.
Yes, for a more stylish and complete look we can combine blinds and shutters whilst at the same time retaining a perfect colour and finish match. This can also be a more economical option because our wider 63.5mm blind slat still has that ‘shutter look’ but is more cost effective than shutters.
