Rolletna supplies aluminium shutters that can either be powder coated to any Dulux Powder coat paint, timber look powder coat (Decowood) or anodised. When anodising, it is essential to determine if a marine-grade finish is required in which case we provide a 25um finish. The standard anodised finish is 10-15um (micron).
External aluminium shutters offer a stylish look and have the added benefit for climate control by blocking the heat or cold before it can enter the home or workspace. Outdoor Aluminium shutters can be made as a cedar timber shutter or as an aluminium shutter.
Outdoor Aluminium shutters can be custom painted in a wet finish. Wet finish paints offer an advantage over powder coated finished because all parts of the shutter will have the colour applied. Powder-coated finishes will leave components such as blade end caps with a different colour. External shutters can be fitted and operated as a sliding system, bi-fold system or hinged system. The picture to the right shows a timber look aluminium shutter on a sliding system.
External Timber Shutters comes with a clear Lacquer, oil or automotive quality paint. Some people prefer not to put any finish on at all and let the cedar timber weather naturally to a grey colour. We do not recommend this with exterior timber shutters as the timber grains will open , and it will shorten the life of the product.
Timber shutters made from western red cedar are preferred as the cedar timber retains natural oils. Cedar is widely recognised for this property and is specified by architects and used extensively in the building industry for both external and internal applications.
Outside Aluminium Shutters can be finished in with anodised colours such as silver. When requesting this finish, we usually suggest that a marine-grade 21micron anodising is applied. As an alternative to an anodised finish on outdoor aluminium shutters, we can suggest powder coat, custom automative paint finish or a timber look powder coat finish.
For a timber look aluminium shutter, we use a unique powder coat finish that gives the look of timber but the resilience and wear of aluminium. Some of the colours available include Western red cedar, Jarrah, Rosewood and Australian Cedar.
