Bermuda Range Shutters
Aesthetics: Bermuda is an MDF shutter with ABS louvres which is painted so that it closely resembles the finish of a painted hardwood shutter. 22 contemporary colours are available in the range Including custom colour option.
Hardwearing: Bermuda is coated in a paintable polypropylene sleeve which is very hard wearing and helps to protect the shutter from changes in ambient temperature and this reduces the likelihood of in- situ moisture changes and the risk of warping and twisting.
Sustainability: All of our MDF is produced from managed plantation Radiata Pine forests that reach maturity in about 30 years. This MDFis viewed favourably as substitutes for tropical hardwoods which take close to 200 years to reach maturity. 70% of the MDF manufacturing energy requirements on site are for producing heat and as the plant generates almost all of its own heat requirement by burning wood residues this is very energy efficient. This is a form of bio fuel and is considered greenhouse gas neutral under the Kyoto protocol.
Louvres:. Due to the louvres being manufactured in ABS the panel weight of the shutter has been reduced. This means that single hung panels can now be up 915mm wide as of 63mm while multiple panels are available up to 610mm in width. The number of panels that can be hinged together remains. Over and above the shutters must be tracked.
Colour palette: There are a total of 22 contemporary colours available and these can be viewed in the generic paint keyring.
