Made from beautiful Paulonia hardwood, the Dorchester is available in 28 different colours and 21 different stained finishes. It can also be matched to Farrow and Ball and Dulux Trade paint shades meaning the colour options are almost endless. This lightweight hardwood is manufactured to the highest standards and is ideal if you prefer the feel of natural wood or wish to see the grain behind the paint or stained finish. There are 11 different hardwood frame designs to choose from. The Dorchester also has a solid panel option. Available in 4 louvre sizes, it has plain stiles on both sides of the shutter and you have a choice of 8 different hinge colours.
The Dorchester is hand finished and made using traditional carpentry techniques, including mortice and tenon joints for strength and stability, and engineered laminated stiles to prevent warping. Once finished they are covered with a clear UV coating to help prevent fading caused by direct sunlight. When the clear UV coating has dried they are given a final visual inspection and then wrapped in bubble wrap and securely packed into polystyrene lined boxes ready for shipping.
