Although a hardwood it is also very light enabling us to confidently use Phoenix for large (tier on tier) installations where weight would definitely preclude the use of Seattle or similar weight hardwood shutter panels. The almost white timber stains to match most timbers accurately while the grain reminiscent of oak, appears rich and exuberant even when painted.
A natural timber feel
The Phoenix Shutter is made in a very light, grainy timber offering a superb character look stained and paint finished. It’s is ideal on very wide openings where tracking is not desired. It is also used for conservatory roof shutters. It is also our most eco timber as its grown to full height in only 8 years and harvested like wheat. It is grown to make shutters thereby locking up carbon better than the Kyoto treaty does.
- Very light, idea for conservatory roof shutters
- Very real character and rich colours when stained
