To accomplish this, each part of the shutter must resist twisting, bowing, cupping and all forms of instability inherent to natural wood.
Compounding the challenge is the fact that many shutters require pieces of wood that must span over 1800mm. All our timber shutters are manufactured using unique reinforced engineered wood stiles.
We employ an advanced procedure that bonds multiple layers of wood together with pressure, heat, and a proprietary chemical formulation. This provides an intense level of durability to the cores of our stiles and results in a robust support system for your shutter panels.
Haunched mortise and tenon – Joined for strength and stability
Proper wood joinery is critical to the prolonged performance and quality of a shutter. At Hunter Valley Blinds in Newcastle region we recognise that the sheer and racking forces endured by shutters dictate the need to use haunched mortise and tenon joinery.
Used where a maximum level of strength and durability is required, the haunched mortise and tenon joint will give the shutter frame the highest level of stability and longevity. All Hunter Valley Blinds timber shutters are designed and manufactured with the ideal haunched mortise and tenon joints.
