As a Shutter material our Poplar wood range is arguably the most rounded shutter range that we offer at South East Shutters, perfectly suited to almost any shutter style from full height shutters in larger windows to shaped shutters and tracked shutters, there are few limitations for a poplar shutter.

Our poplar is sourced from Russia, where it is sustainably forested. All our poplar wood is A1 grade to ensure only the best lengths are used for our wooden shutters, once selected our Poplar wood is climatised and kiln-dried to ensure supreme stability is achieved before the manufacturing process can commence. Poplar wood is most suited to painted shutters rather than stained shutters. Its wood grain is not as attractive as that of our Basswood shutters and so poplar is a better solution for painted window shutters.

Poplar woods strength and stability make it ideally suited for shutters for bay windows or styles such as tier on tier shutters where more stability is required to ensure the plantation shutters do not move over time when in constant daily use.

Premium Hardwood Shutters – MDF/Wood

From the smallest details such as the density of wood fibres through to the finished spray painting, we have always aimed to achieve the best in class for every one of our ranges.

We have been heavily involved in the design and development of our real wood shutters for decades. Our expertise is present from the designing to final products and the evidence is clear to see. We pride ourselves on offering only the best materials for plantation shutters.

As great as a material MDF is, we know from our manufacturing expertise it has huge limitations, for example, Bi-folding shutters are simply not suitable for MDF, the weight of the material coupled with the weak joints and hinge points will only lead to the shutters falling over a period of time.
