Outdoor Plantation Shutters for Newcastle homeowners
Use aluminium shutters to transform an alfresco area to an additional living room for entertainment or just more space at home. We often combine a plantation shutter with external blinds to create the perfect balance of privacy, sun protection and enjoyment of the outside. Aluminium shutters are an ideal solution for homeowners looking to increase privacy in their backyard or outdoor living area. Being aluminium, the shutters are resistant to moisture and corrosion, making them suitable for your outdoor area or living space, including on decks, verandahs, patios or even used to screen spa areas from the neighbours.
Aluminium shutters provide the best heat protection when fitted across windows, the double skin system provides the most effective method from keeping the heat from entering the building through the glass. We make this product to be long lasting and durable to withstand the harshest of elements with option of either 90mm or 115mm wide louvers. For a free measure and quote, contact us today!
Australian Made Outdoor Aluminium Shutters
Our exterior plantation shutters are available as fixed, sliding or hinged (with locks) configurations. Our custom made shutters have been designed and engineered to withstand the toughest of Australian environments.
If you prefer to have a fixed louvre to act as a privacy screen, we have a patented blade lock device that fixes the louvers at 45 degree. This provides compliance with BASIX and DAs that insist on privacy for neighbours.
All our Aluminium Plantation Shutters are made in using the highest grade aluminium, T6. Available in a range of powder coat colours and finishes. They are powder-coated to an above standard 80 microns and engineered for our local Newcastle and Hunter conditions. Hinges are a minimum of 304-grade stainless steel with 316 marine grade available as an option.
Most frequent questions and answers on external plantation shutters
How are outdoor plantation shutters different to the internal ones?
We use the same extrusions to make the panels, but the fixings (screws etc) are suitable for an external life, for example 306 stainless steel or galvanized.
We also use a different set of framing options which are bulkier and more heavy duty as we don’t want the panels flying off and landing elsewhere. We often will powder coat in a matching Colorbond colour that matches the rest of the building.
Can you lock off the blades to conform to council requirements?
Yes, we have designed a locking mechanism that locks the blades at 45 degrees.
Can you use external shutters as a pool fence?
No, because children could use the blades as foot holds to climb over.
Can external shutters be automated?
No. External planation shutters are manual operation only.
