Woodlore® MDF Shutters give you all of the benefits and appearance of real wood without the price tag. MDF (Medium Density Fibre board) is made from recycled wood fibres mixed with resins. This produces a composite material which outperforms wood in many ways. It is stronger than wood alone and is not affected by changes in temperature or humidity.
Woodlore® MDF Plantation shutters are hand-built in our workshops by skilled craftsmen using your choice of style, frame design, and colour. The finish that is used contains an ultra-violet inhibitor which means that your shutters won’t fade from strong sunlight. The shutters won’t warp, chip, or crack, and are virtually maintenance free, needing only dusting and an occasional wipe over with a damp cloth.
Every Woodlore® MDF Plantation shutter undergoes no less than 25 different quality control checks at different stages of manufacture. This makes certain that your shutters are built to last and enables us to provide you with our limited lifetime warranty.
You can have your choice of different frame designs and panel colours to ensure that your finished shutters are unique to your home. The number of possible permutations is virtually limitless.

Our Lifetime® ABS Plantation Shutters are manufactured using a man-made thermoplastic polymer which is extremely tough and will withstand the heat of the sun, and impact from pets or small children.
These shutters are hand-built incorporating your choice of frame and panel designs, together with a range of colours and hardware patterns, which will result in shutters that sit well with your room décor and are unique.
Richmond® Shutters are manufactured to the same unbeatable high standards as are all our other shutters, but with these we have used our in-depth knowledge of shutter manufacturing to combine our Woodlore® MDF frames with basswood panels. This produces shutters of top quality which are at the same time great value for money.
The panels are manufactured using our top grade, quarter-sawn, and kiln dried laminated basswood. This results in panels which have a very even grain, ensuring a consistent finish combined with strength and rigidity. As basswood is light in weight it allows considerable flexibility when crafting shutters for larger windows, since the weight affects the amount of window that can be covered without requiring additional support.
Our basswood panels are manufactured using a special machine which produces finger joints which are considerably smaller than those of other shutter manufacturers, and also permits us to use off-cuts which naturally keeps the cost down.
The frames of Richmond® Plantation Shutters are exactly the same as those in our Woodlore® range of shutters utilising Medium Density Fibreboard. This produces an extremely strong frame which is finished in a special poly coating which is resistant to staining, scuffing, chipping, cracking, and fading. These MDF frames are made from 90% reclaimed wood fibres.
Natural wood is one of the finest materials it is possible to have in the home, and our Sussex® Wooden Plantation Shutters offer great versatility. They can be produced in your choice of our range of different paint colours, but they can also be stained and polished to the gloss of a piece of fine antique furniture. Top and bottom rails can be hand-carved by our artisans to any design of your choice, there are a number of different handle and hinge options, and there is a selection of different frame styles. Sussex® Wooden Plantation Shutters can be built to fit any type and shape of window.
Every shutter is subject to no less than 25 quality control checks covering each stage of the manufacturing process, so you can be confident that they will fit your windows perfectly.
Our Sussex® Wooden Plantation Shutters are built to last a lifetime and every one carries our unique limited lifetime guarantee.
