Recently, I caught up with an old friend from 20 years back (OMG is it that long???) who worked in the Blind industry (manufacturing blinds, NOT using a white cane!!) He introduced me to a relatively new shutter timber which is grown organically, harvested and manufactured in an environmentally responsible manner, and comes with a 5 year general warranty and a 15 year structural warranty.
Competitively priced and aesthetically beautiful, poplar shutters are fast becoming a best seller for more Than Curtains.
Clients are delighted with the quality and versatility of poplar as compared to other timbers. The 4 coat Polyurethane finish is antifungal and antistatic and also has low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), so they are great for allergy sufferers.
The installation guys are qualified carpenters. Since we try to be present at installations, the More Than Curtains staff has learnt a great deal from watching and chatting to the installers. The clients appreciate this personal touch and the fact that we are willing to learn “first hand” so that we can in turn provide a sounder knowledge base and better service and products to our cherished clients.
