If you’re thinking about shutters for a bathroom or busy kitchen, swap wood for ABS. While solid wood or engineered wood shutters look stunning, ABS is ideal in humid rooms avoiding warping, flaking and discolouration.
ABS, a type of ultra-durable, high quality thermoplastic called acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, is completely water resistant, wipe clean and unbelievably tough. It’s so tough, in fact, that it’s used to make crash helmets, and it’s both stronger and more stable in damp environments than PVC.
But while this material is designed to work hard, it still looks great. Our ABS shutters are just as sleek and stylish as our wooden products, and they’re available in six painted colours - so you can choose the design and colour that best suits your space. We often recommend them for bathrooms, kitchens, and children’s bedrooms, where you might want the look of a shutter with extra durability.
