Bespoke Shutters

Bespoke Shutters

It is a simple truth that not all shutters are created equal.

At AMERICAN Shutters® we have been supplying and installing bespoke timber shutters in South Africa for over 30 years. Our shutter range include Decowood shutters, Normandy shutters, Woodbury Waterproof shutters, full height shutters, bypass, hinged and café style shutters along with our aluminium security shutters.

Operating throughout South Africa with showrooms in Cape Town and Johannesburg we have established our reputation by being committed to the highest levels of craftsmanship along with the use of only the best products available.

Why are our bespoke shutters and blinds so unique?

  • 100% natural wood, as they say it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
  • We hand select all our timber, it’s 100% organic and renewable.
  • All shapes, sizes, colours, widths, or coverings.
  • Not all paints are the same, only the best will do.

Client satisfaction is really important to us, this why personally carry out each and every installation, and never use outside contractors. We will assist you to achieve an attractive, practical and affordable solution to your exact design requirements, all measured and fitted for you.

How can we help to make your vision a reality?
