MDF Shutters

Why choose MDF plantation shutters

MDF plantation shutters are the most popular choice in our range. Engineered to deliver the same high-quality finish as hardwood, MDF offers the added benefit of overcoming the natural drawbacks of hardwood. MDF shutters are often marketed as Antigua shutters or Craftwood shutters, but we like to keep things simple.

MDF shutters are:

  • Longer lasting than a painted shutter
  • World-renowned shutter with patented technology
  • The most economical shutter material in our range
  • Virtually indistinguishable from more expensive materials
  • Resistant to warping, fading, and general wear and tear
  • Easy to clean, thanks to its polypropylene coating

MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) is an engineered wood composite, covered with a durable polypropylene coating that provides excellent protection against scratching, fading, and heat damage. The stiles are crafted with multiple layers of wood, bonded together using pressure, heat, and polymer. This innovative process imparts exceptional structural integrity to the cores, resulting in a robust support system for your MDF shutters.

Across the world, MDF plantation shutters are the No. 1 selling shutter in the UK, US, Australian, and Asian markets, and is reflected in over 30 years of product development making it the most technically advanced shutter on the market.
