Selecting your shutters from the numerous options available in the market can be difficult. Especially because the differences between Australian made shutters and imported variants aren’t always obvious at first glance.

Not all shutters are created equal; neither are those who design and manufacture them. Therefore, the decision to buy Australian made will often pay off in more ways than one. Differences in physical quality may only show after some time, which is why it is important to make sure your choice of shutters have all the benefits that Australian made products such as OpenShutters can offer over cheaper competitors.

Shutters by OpenShutters are made from top quality, solid Western Red Cedar sourced from British Colombia and certified by independent forest certification agencies to confirm that the timber is legally sourced from a sustainable forest. These shutters will, therefore, not only be longer lasting but also better looking than cheaper imported shutter options by companies that don’t invest the time or money into keeping track of the chain of custody.

Additionally, being an Australian made product, OpenShutters will always be made to Australian standards and with the Australian climate in mind. Imported products cannot claim this advantage and are likely to fail in Australia’s frequently changing weather patterns.

Buying from OpenShutters means the added bonus of supporting local communities, and ensuring that top quality products can continue to be produced. Very importantly, buying local also means any after-sales support from Australian owned and operated businesses such as OpenShutters is just a phone call away, ensuring peace of mind to the customer. Additionally, the warranty is also provided and serviced by a local company, which has been operating for over 20 years.
