Our Imported Plantation Shutters in PVC are the same quality you have come to know and love from our Australian Made version but as they are imported, we can offer them at the most competitive prices on the net! Lead times are generally 6-8 weeks but are still faster than most competitive Imported Plantation Shutters. Please note, you will need to allow for additional delivery time within Australia.
Available in the same colour way as the Australian Made versions, our Imported Plantation Shutters in PVC is the option to go for if you have some time up your sleeve and want to save around $125/sqm.
Although our DIY Imported Plantation Shutters in PVC can take 6-8 weeks to manufacture, you wont be disappointed with the quality.
Our quality PVC Plantation Shutters look just like Timber Plantation Shutters but have the added benefit of having a rigid aluminium core in the louvre blades, side styles and top and bottom rails, which means we can make panels up to 900mm wide!
PVC Plantation Shutters have exactly the same Thermal insulation heat transfer properties as Basswood Plantation Shutters. This means both products will insulate your home just the same. This has been independently tested through AWTA Melbourne.
