Phoenix shutters are a very lightweight hardwood that comes from a Parasol tree. This grows to full height (45 ft) in only eight years. The eight rings (one for each year of growth) produce a distinctive character and a grain reminiscent of oak that stands out even when painted.
The timber is solution soaked for one month, after which the moisture is vacuumed out leaving a strong but very lightweight, bleached wood. The bleaching leaves the wood almost white, which means that we can offer a range of stained, finishes as well as the ever-popular painted shades.
Phoenix shutters are one of the most popular materials. Phoenix shutters can be used in every single style including Full height, cafe style, tier on tier, bay windows, tracked shutters and all shaped shutters.
Our Phoenix shutters can be used for wide windows as you can have multiple panels hinged together due to their light weight.
