Paulownia wood shutters

Although lightweight, this timber is strong and will not crack or split when nails or screws are used.

Built to Last

With its fine, knot-free grain, paulownia is ideal for painting and staining. Although a hardwood, it is roughly a third lighter in weight that most other hardwoods. This makes it the perfect choice for wider windows or Tier-on-Tier shutters. It’s great for the environment too. A deep-rooted tree with a complex root system, it yields one cubic metre of hardwood in eight years, after which time a new stem will shoot. Therefore, a single plantation can be harvested several times, providing a sustainable and renewable source over time. Although lightweight, this timber is strong and will not crack or split when nails or screws are used.

Easy Installation

Any minor adjustments required to the frames during installation can be easily corrected by a simple plane or sand back and touch up with paint. Due to its light weight, paulownia shutters are ideal for larger windows.

The Smoothest of Finishes

Paulownia offers the full range of C&C options: 13 paints, 11 wood stains, 4 lime wash finishes, Solid Shaker & Solid Raised shutters, and can be made into special shutter shapes too (e.g., triangles, circles).

The limewash finish exhibits a grained finish through the paint, often described as having a nautical/beachside vibe. Should a customer have a rustic/shabby chic room, or ask for a driftwood look shutter, then the limewash is for them.

The Clearview rod on Paulownia shutters is different to that on other ranges, being specifically designed to allow slat control while maintaining the integrity of the wood. There are four rod options in total: Central, Offset, Clearview, and Hidden. Available in a full range of colours and design options, Paulownia wood shutters can be matched to custom colours too*.
