A New Range of Aluminium Shutters from Plantation Shutters

Light, impact-resistant and extremely strong, aluminium is also resistant to corrosion and UV radiation – and it’s 100% recyclable. No surprise, then, that it’s the material that Plantation Shutters has chosen to use for two new additions to its shutter range. ‘Aluminium is well known for being robust – it doesn’t rust, rot or warp,’ says Werner Jansen van Rensburg, MD of Plantation Shutters. ‘It’s a material that’s especially suited to our South African climate for the way it handles harsh sunlight, rain and damp. It’s also fireproof and virtually maintenance-free.’

The first of the two new products – the 34mm Plantation Security Shutter – is the same shutter that South Africans have come to rely on for high-quality security, with two differences. It has a 34mm frame for customers who don’t require the 50mm one, and comes with a three-pin lock (as opposed to a five-pin lock). The slightly reduced thickness gives a different aesthetic and an option to those who perhaps live in a security estate, or have other sufficient security measures in place. 

Then there’s the Plantation Aluminium Shutter, a high-quality aluminium shutter that is perfect for indoor and outdoor use, creating a simpler barrier that is still aesthetically pleasing and robust. Whether it’s to be used to screen a patio, keep monkeys out, provide privacy for a shower or simply as a divider or windbreak, this product gives homeowners the durability of aluminium plus the versatility of indoor or outdoor use. These shutters are also fitted with patented ‘double throw’ flush locks. 

All Plantation Shutters’ aluminium shutters are 100% locally manufactured and installed by the brand’s efficient in-house installation teams. They come standard with 5-, 10- or 12-year guarantee, and lead time on these beauties is just 21 working days. What’s more, Plantation Shutters are all available in a range of 50 powder-coated colours, and four wood-look colours.
