  • There are quite a few shutters out there made from “wood”, “engineered wood” and various combinations. In order to cut down on the confusion and level the playing field a bit, we present our rundown of some common shutter materials. Our PolyCore and Lexwood Shutters only use 100% Basswood or Aluminum reinforced PVC.


    pressboard shutters in ColoradoPressboard or particleboard is an engineered wood that is made by taking wood particles like wood chips, sawmill shavings and sawdust and combining them with synthetic resin (usually urea formaldehyde resin). The resultant material is pressed into sheets and heated to dry the glue.

    There is a serious safety concern with particleboard. Formaldehyde (part of the glue) is classified by the WHO as a human carcinogen. Even though a large amount is removed when the glue dries, formaldehyde continues to be emitted throughout the life of the product as the resin decomposes. Particleboard will also disintegrate when exposed to moisture and Colorado's extreme sun.  Particleboard may visibly sag over time or snap near the fasteners.
