100% Hardwood Shutters Crafted in Basswood
Basswood had been adopted as the preferred wood species for high-end shutters, which is why all of The Blindman’s Hardwood Shutters are fabricated in Basswood rather than commonly used MDF, HDF or Poplar wood. Basswood shutters have the best combination of the most desirable traits among other hardwoods. It is one of the straightest hardwoods with an indistinct grain pattern and fine uniform texture which lends itself to superior versatility in staining and painting. The light wood grain can be stained to match any color, even specialty woods such as Alder wood or Cherry. The non-porous close grains of Basswood resist moisture and warping better than open wood grains making it one of the most durable furniture grade woods.
Basswood has a greater strength-to-weight ratio than any other shutter material on the market while maintaining a light profile. Being both lightweight and very strong means your shutters are held up with less hinge fatigue, and can withstand wider panels, longer lover sizes and less framing. Bulky support systems are not required with Basswood resulting in an authentic, clean and uniform look.
Unlike it’s manufactured wood counterparts, when Basswood is exposed to the elements of direct sunlight it will not de-laminate, crack, sag or swell. While engineered woods are cheaper, overtime wood and glue combinations used to create manufactured wood will contract, twist, warp, and eventually fail. Shutters are generally exposed to prolonged sunlight, which is precisely the kind of conditions where wood glue breaks down often revealing glue lines, bleed through, splitting and cracks in paint or stain.
