Bury is an old mill town and famous for all its textile manufacturing over the years. Bury is situated in the Northern part of the Greater Manchester area. Since the introduction of the Manchester Metrolink, Bury has become a popular commuter town in and out of the city.

The large and impressive buildings are now mainly converted into apartments and the windows are ideal for window shutters. With numerous designs and styles to choose from, plantation shutters give you versatility as a window covering.

Full height window shutters cover the whole window and by adding a mid rail allow you to use the louvres independently at the top and bottom of each shutter panel. Café style shutters only cover the bottom half of the window and are usually chosen by customers that like to have the top half totally open to the view and have no neighbours overlooking them.

The window shutters shown in this picture are café style shutters as the customer wanted coverage on half of the window when watching TV at night time but during the day would open the panels fully back to allow as much light into the room as possible.

All our wooden shutters are FSC certified and made from either poplar or elm hardwoods. The poplar wood does not have any grain running through it therefore is ideal for our painted finishes as the finish is very smooth whereas the elm wood has a deep grain running through it so is mainly used for wood stains however elm can be painted and is ideal for those customers that want the distressed look.

There are two types of pushrod that you can choose to have with our café style plantation shutters. The traditional pushrod runs down the centre of each panel connecting all the louvres together with a stainless steel staple or you can opt for our Open Sky concealed push rod which is a small metal bar running at the back to the side of the blades connecting the louvres together and cannot be seen once all the louvres are opened.
