Norman Shutters

For centuries, shutters have been prized as fine window furniture and a testament to a homeowner’s discerning style and sophistication. Shutters not only provide design, privacy, and light control options, they can also enhance the value of a home. Like any home investment, only shutters of exceptional quality will provide long-term value and increase appreciation.

Norman Woodlore ® EcoSmart Engineered Wood Shutters

As a busy homeowner, you expect innovative products that retain their functionality and good looks without excessive maintenance. Woodlore® shutters are constructed with a solid MDF core – real wood in an advanced state – for incredible density and strength. Made from the wood of rapid-growth trees, Woodlore® shutters enable tree replenishment at an extremely accelerated rate.In addition, Woodlore’s UV inhibitors do not release any volatile organic compound and protects against color fading and yellowing. Our patented polypropylene coating resists staining to ensure long-term performance in a variety of environments. Woodlore is the natural choice of shutter for your windows.

  • Reinforced engineered wood stiles provide an intense level of durability and structural integrity
  • Stainless steel staples resist corrosion and withstand extreme heat
  • Better than vinyl and PVC shutters and can withstand even the highest desert temperatures
  • Patented polypropylene coating makes its surface extremely durable and robust

Normandy’s wood grain characteristics are exceptional. With stain, the distinctive wood grain has an enhanced color, depth and character with the inherent texture of the timber. With paint, the white finish gleams softly off the polished surface. What ever your personal style – warm and rustic, or sleek and refined, you are sure to find the perfect match for your décor.
