Give your living space a lift with shutters! Taylor Blinds and Shutters offers three ranges – Thermowood®, Hurricane Aluminium and ShutterGuard® Aluminium Shutters – each offering the dual deal of functionality and easy-on-the-eye décor to enhance your home.

Fantastic for use over windows and door openings to elegantly merge indoor and outdoor living as well as to provide excellent light, noise and temperature control, shutters can also be used more creatively throughout the home. Taylor’s Thermowood® Shutters are ideal as room dividers, cupboard doors for your bedroom or covers for the bottoms of kitchen and bathroom sinks. This is because these practical, custom-made, louvre door shutters can be retracted and stacked as well as provide ventilation. Manufactured from a durable, specially-engineered wood substitute, Thermowood® Shutters have a warranty period of five years and are waterproof – making rust or warp a thing of the past.


A savvy solution that doubles up as shutters and burglar bars is Taylor’s innovative, patented ShutterGuard® shutters. They stylishly offer security without compromising the aesthetics of your home. Features to set your mind at ease include a two-way locking system that makes them virtually impenetrable along with a gear-lock that keeps the shutters in place and a bolt that secures the shutters to the floor. Made from super sturdy aluminium, these shutters can be fitted to almost any window and door – making them an easy addition to your home.


Designed to protect windows and doors from storms and high winds, Taylor’s Hurricane Aluminium Shutters will also help protect your privacy whilst adding to your home’s beauty.

Both the ShutterGuard® and Hurricane Aluminium Shutters ranges come with 10 year warranties and are now available in even more colour options to compliment your décor. They’ve added 3 new colours to their standard range: Matte Light Grey, Matte Soft Grey and Matte Anthracite Grey. They still have your favourites Matte White & Matte Bronze. These come at no additional cost. If these colours don’t suit your décor needs, you can powder coat the Aluminium Shutters to any colour you choose. This will come with a 10% surcharge.


“Not only are shutters a solution for adding style to your home, but since they are permanent fixtures, they add to its value too,” says Taylor’s Managing Director, Anthony Mederer.
