Plantation shutters have been in use for many years and for the last 100 or so of these, the design hasn't changed very much at all. Of course there have been a few minor amendments such as hidden tilt controls and louvre sizes but no major design change.
Welcome the new kid on the block. Welcome the URBAN louvre.
Instead of having rounded, elliptical blades shaped like an aircraft wing, that sit on each other, the URBAN louvre is square edged and closes one into the next. This gives a tighter close that keeps out more light and at the same time, prevents heat loss as the insulation value is much greater. Shutters fitted with URBAN louvres are smoother, easier to clean and very contemporary.
Currently available with 89mm louvres, NAPLES URBAN is the plantation shutter of the future, but, it's here now and can be installed in your home in under four weeks.
Made from Composite material, Naples has a ten year guarantee and best of all, they cost the same as standard louvres.
