3.5" Wood Plantation Shutter

Plantation shutters are one of the most popular window coverings that Binds and Shutters Plus supplies to the entire NWA area. Many buy plantation shutters for several reasons.

This window covering is one of the most desired in the industry today. They possess great durability and are a classic choice that overflows with elegance. Plantation shutters exude a powerful charm, and can enhance any décor from the most traditional setting or any contemporary home. They provide excellent light control and a great deal of insulation. Furthermore, they can be custom manufactured for any window size or opening, including many different geometric shapes and arch tops.

This incredible window covering has an archaic history as it dates back to the Middle Ages. During this time of old, they were used in structures that had window spaces, but no glass. They were installed for purposes of windy storms and for ventilation during clear and warm weather.

Even the European colonists in the Caribbean and Americas, realized how well suited plantation shutters were for many climates. They were especially popular among the owners of the old plantation homes. This is where “plantation shutters” get their name.

Types of Shutters

Their construction consists of wide slats of material, typically 1 3/4", 2 1/2”, 3 1/2” and 4 1/2”. These slats are attached to the inside of panels. These panels are typically hinged to a solid frame. These horizontal slats and are movable by positioning a “tilt rod” up and down. The panels can open with a full 180° angle range of motion.

Wood is typically the desired material; however, it is also possible to acquire shutters constructed from various composites and polymers. These are referred to as “faux wood.”

The following gives a comparison of wood shutters vs. faux wood:

Real Wood

1. Comes in a greater color variety in both paints and stains
2. Have no restriction on specialty shapes
3. Much lighter
4. Greater size varieties
5. Can be custom painted

1. Not very well resistant to humidity
2. Pricing maybe slightly higher

Faux Wood

1. Some faux are generally humidity resistant
2. Typically cost less than real wood

1. They are heavier than real wood
2. Have greater restrictions concerning color scheme
3. Restrictions on custom-design

Teak and Paulownia are two of the most advantageous of wood species. They has a low moisture content level, resists warping, is not prone to resin leaks, very durable, and its’ smooth grains make for a nice stain finish.

The best faux is a durable polymer. This is recommended over a composite, because composites are softer and can be dented/damaged much easier.
