5 reasons to use plantation shutters for your home


Plantation shutters have long been a popular choice in Australian homes.  PolySatin® Plantation Shutters are made from a durable, non-toxic polyresin compound, and finished with a revolutionary technology, which gives them the soft, matt lustre look of freshly painted wood. This means you get the same look as wood, but with far greater durability and longevity.  

There are several great reasons to select plantation shutters for your home: 


Made to last

Luxaflex® PolySatin® Shutters are made from an advanced polyresin compound that makes them durable and easy to clean. They are impervious to moisture, and won’t blister, peel, flake, corrode or fade. This makes them a great option for wet areas such as laundries, bathrooms or even kitchens. Luxaflex® PolySatin® Shutters are even backed by our 20-year warranty*.

Fully customisable

These smart shutters can also be completely customised to suit your home. You can choose from a wide range of designs, and the shutters are available in three classic shades of white. They can also be customised with stylish valances, distinctive frames, three unique louvre sizes and tasteful hinge finishes.  

Luxaflex® PolySatin® Plantation Shutters can also be customised to fit windows of various shapes and sizes. While there are some limitations and restrictions, PolySatin Shutters can be manufactured to suit arches (half circle, half moon, quarter circle and gothic), angles (right and isosceles triangles, top and bottom sloped), hexagons and octagons.  

They can even be used as a versatile room divider, or a stylish solution for larger windows or sliding glass doors. And they’re available in a variety of different designs to accommodate this, including hinged, hinged bi-fold, bi-fold on track and by-pass on track. 

Made in Australia

Buying Australian made products is becoming a growing priority for homeowners and renovators. This shift reflects a growing awareness of the benefits of supporting local industries, fostering economic growth, and ensuring quality craftsmanship in their projects. 

When you buy Australian-made, you’re supporting our local workers, and the value of your purchase stays on-shore. You also get the peace of mind that your product has been uniquely designed for our environment and weather conditions. 

The following Luxaflex® products are made in Australia:

Insulation and energy efficiency

Luxaflex® PolySatin® Plantation Shutters are completely adjustable, and you can control the solar energy entering your windows and doors. These shutters can also reduce heat flux by 20-58%1 depending on the degree of air exchange between the window and the shutter panel, saving on your cooling costs.

 PolySatin® Shutters reflect inbound solar rays back to the outside during summer but can be opened to allow the warming sun into your home in winter, which also helps reduce air-conditioning costs.

Safe and non-toxic

Made from a non-toxic polyresin compound, Luxaflex® PolySatin® Shutters meet the certification requirements set by Greenguard® for Low Chemical Emissions making them the ideal solution for all households especially those with young children.
