Plantation Shutters

Stylish and practical, plantation shutters offer the perfect way to keep rooms cool during the summer and warmer during the winter.

WF Glazing Protection can supply and install plantation shutters in a variety of different styles and colours.  We can also create custom made shutters that fit any window shape and size.

Why Choose Shutters over Blinds?

Plantation ShuttersTraditionally blinds and curtains have been the primary choice for UK homeowners. However, this is all set to change as the popularity of plantation shutters continues to increase due to their ability to provide a chic, stylish and modern alternative.

Our plantation style have slats (also known as louvers) that rotate open and closed to control light levels.  Because of their insulating capabilities, shutters can realistically be viewed as an investment rather than an expense as they can often be used to limit heating bills during the winter months.

Benefits of Plantation Shutters

As opposed to curtains and blinds, anyone thinking of installing shutters to their home or property will be delighted to hear that they provide excellent levels of flexibility.

Not only are they available in a variety of different slat sizes, colours and panel designs, they also offer a hygienic alternative to blinds and curtain because they are easy to wipe clean and do not absorb dust and dirt.

Most window coverings offer the ability to retain some level of control over light, privacy and ventilation.  However, plantation shutters offer far greater versatility than curtains which are essentially open or closed.

Increased Security

Plantation ShuttersThe solid barrier created by the shutters offers an effective solution when attempting to tackle solar gain and noise pollution.  For many of our customers, for whom security may be an issue, having an additional solid barrier makes it difficult to look into a property and this privacy can help to deter opportunistic thieves whilst not compromising the look of their home.

Client Comments

Mr & Mrs Allen - Clifton Village, Nottingham

“Having installed a double glazed lantern roof to our new kitchen extension we found that although we loved the extra light, at certain times of the day the glare could be unbearable when cooking or dining and was ruining our whole experience of being in the new kitchen.

I had used solar control window film at work many years ago so thought it might be a possible solution for us. Having looked online for a professional, local company we contacted WF Glazing Protection and Dave came to see us.

He provided expert advice as he talked us through the various film types, coatings, performances, manufacturers and warranties. In the end we settled on SolarGard Silver35 with 61% glare reduction and a 12 year warranty.

At first we were concerned it would look too dark but this hasn’t been the case. The kitchen feels just as light and spacious but without the annoying glare and the film gives the sky a lovely blue colour when you look up.

Dave also advised us to have 3M Prestige70 External clear solar film fitted to the south facing patio doors. This film reduces the sun’s heat without changing the appearance of the glass. It was a great decision as it has finished the job off nicely.

The sunshine this May has been a good test and the film has passed with flying colours. The kitchen is so much more comfortable and we can really enjoy it at all times of the day. Thank you to Dave and his installation team who did a very neat and tidy job.”
