Specifications

For maximum versatility we manufacture our timber shutters in six attractive styles.

  • Our ‘T134’ (25mm lath) is available in White Beech, American White Oak, Red Oak, Utile (Mahogany), White Ash, Maple, Red Cherry and American Black Walnut as standard.
  • Our ‘T234’ (50mm lath) is available in American White Oak, Red Oak, Utile (Mahogany), White Ash, Maple, Red Cherry, American Black Walnut and Colombian Pine as standard.

N.B. ‘T234’ moulding is not available in White Beech and will not ‘reverse roll’.

  • Our ‘Vision 234’ uses the same 50mm lath as the ‘T234’ but has the attractive feature of 25mm diameter holes in the laths. These can be to all laths or to just some of the laths when less vision is required. Available in all timbers as our ‘T234’. The standard layout is for the holes to be spaced 50mm apart although this can be greater if desired.
  • Our ‘T244’ uses a timber lath in American White Oak, Red Oak, Utile (Mahogany), White Ash, Maple, Red Cherry, American Black Walnut and Colombian Pine with an insert of either grey, black or blue plastic, stainless steel or aluminium. (Other insert options may be possible – please consult our sales department).

Due to the nature of this ‘combination’ lath, this shutter will always be supplied with a factory finish to suit your own requirement.

  • Our ‘T9134’ rolling grille, manufactured using our ‘T134’ (25mm) moulding where each alternate lath is omitted for a space of 229mm x 25mm to form an attractive single spaced grille effect, or with two laths removed for double spacing of 229mm X 50mm. Available in White Beech, American White Oak, Red Oak, Utile (Mahogany), White Ash, Maple, Red Cherry and American Black Walnut as standard.
  • Our ‘T9244’ rolling grille, manufactured using our ‘T244’ (25mm) moulding where the lath is left out to leave an attractive 300mm wide gap between the inserts. The moulding is available in American White Oak, Red Oak, Utile (Mahogany), White Ash, Maple, Red Cherry, American Black Walnut and Colombian Pine. The insert can be either grey, black or blue plastic, stainless steel or aluminium which can be powder coated to any of our standard BS/RAL colours or Bright or Silver Anodised.

Due to the nature of this ‘combination’ lath, this rolling grille will always be supplied with a factory finish to suit your own requirement.

Guides are supplied in matching timber although they can be supplied in aluminium if desired.

We will always attempt to source other timbers as required.

Laths are connected by steel aircraft cables concealed within the laths or by continuous zinc plated chain hinge on our ‘T234’ lath when over 2000mm clear high.

Ironmongery and Locking

On manually operated shutters & grilles we include flush lifts in brass with the option of other finishes.

Locking is by shootbolts on shutters.

An option for a cylinder lock to the bottom rail is available. This throws a lock bar into each side guide and not the counter top/floor.

A cylinder key operated lock is included as standard on ‘T9134’ and ‘T9244’ grilles and ‘Vision 234’.

Locks would normally be omitted if electrically operated but can be included at extra cost.

Custom Design

As you would expect our timber shutters and grilles are all manufactured to suit your exact requirements.

Manual shutters can be manufactured up to 3000mm in length with the option of fixed or removable, straight or angled, intermediate guides allowing total flexibility in length of ‘run’ required.

Removable guides will usually be fixed into the counter or floor by use of flush fitting spring loaded retaining keeps (dustcaps).

Dependent on timber species we can manufacture our timber shutters and grilles, when electrically operated, up to 4000mm clear wide and 4500mm clear high. *
*Please contact our sales office to confirm the maximum size available in your choice of timber.

We can also provide tambour shutter curtains with or without side guides for use in cabinets, etc.

Operation

Self coiling (manual push up/pull down) operation by counter balanced sprung roller is standard up to 3000mm in width.

Electric operation by single-phase 240v ‘tubular motor’ with activation by rocker switch or keyswitch, and manual handcrank override is available as an option.

N.B. Consideration should be made as to the user of the shutter. If the user is less able we recommend the shutter be split into two parts or be electric if over 2500mm wide.

Hoods, Fascias and/or Soffits

These are available at extra cost in 12mm birch faced plywood. Beech, Ash, White Oak or Sapele faced plywood available at extra cost.

Galvanised sheet steel hood/fascia/soffit also available with optional powder coated finish.

Finish

Our timber shutters are left unfinished ‘in the white’ unless otherwise specified.
Sanded (ready for finishing ‘by others’), Polished or Stained & Polished to almost any shade is available at extra cost.

We can also offer a ‘Rentokil Albi-Max’ Class 1 or 0 intumescent flame retardant finish.

This does NOT offer the timber rolling shutter any fire resistance.
