UK: Shutters: Shutter Manufacturers & Suppliers
The most common type of internal shutter is the wooden Plantation Shutter. This has louvred panels, which can be adjusted to control the air and light entering the room. There are two main types of external shutter: Decorative External Shutters and Functional External Shutters. These may be madeof timber, UPVC, or aluminium. Decorative External Shutters are permanently fixed to the wall. Functional External Shutters are able to open and close to shade the window from sun. Traditionally, they are side hinged; they may also slide on a track, or fold in concertina (bifold) fashion. Leading UK suppliers of shutters are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
LEADING SHUTTER MANUFACTURERS & SUPPLIERS
Simply Shutters: Decorative External Shutters. Simply Shutters, Based in Brandon, Suffolk, manufactures UPVC decorative external shutters. Simply Shutters also supplies fully operating shutters, which are mounted on hinges and can be closed over the window. The most popular product is the traditional louvre decorative window shutter. They are made to measure in a variety of set widths (ranging from 5.75 inches to 18 inches) and are cut exactly to the customer's required length in quarter inch increments. They are available in 17 colours plus a paintable option. Extra wide shutters can be supplied if required; these have a vertical centre rail. Horizontal centre rails are available on all louvre shutters as an option. They can be positioned as required by the customer, within one inch. This provides the opportunity to align the mid rail with the window rail, so that the shutters harmonise with the window design.
Eden House: External Shutters. Eden House, based in Ascot, Berkshire, manufacturers and supplies a wide range of external shutters. It offers three ranges of functional shutters, which can be closed to cover the window. These are the Classic Range (with shutters mounted in the traditional way on side hinges), the Urban Range (of sliding external shutters), and the Pavilion Range (of external shutters which open in folding concertina fashion). All Eden House shutters are made of aluminium, and are available in a choice of more than 180 RAL colours. These include bold reds, blues, and yellows, as well as the more traditional darker greens, greys, brown, and blues. There is a wide choice of design of the aluminium shutter panels. These include fixed, closely spaced louvres, admitting no light. Others have spaces between the louvres so that some light and air can enter even when the shutter is closed. A further option is a plantation-style panel which allows the angle of the louvres to be adjusted manually.
