GENUINE FSC-CERTIFIED PLANTATION SHUTTERS
Just Shutters offers a wide range of high-quality plantation shutters suited to people of all tastes – including those who prefer to buy products that are kinder to the environment.
“To help our franchisees meet the needs of such customers, we’ve recently introduced a range of beautiful shutters made from FSC-certified white teak,” explained Just Shutters Founder, Chris Rocker. ‘Since the FSC changed their rules, UK shutter companies are no longer certified themselves. However, our manufacturer is fully FSC certified, click here.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, not-for-profit organisation that was set up in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. Its main tools for achieving this are standardisation, independent certification and labelling of forest products, which offers customers around the world the ability to choose products from socially and environmentally responsible forests.

Chris added: “The white teak is grown sustainably on the island of Kolombangara, which is in the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean. The stock is completely traceable by our manufacturer and every link in the supply chain – from forest to end product – is monitored by the FSC Chain of Custody system.”
“It’s more environmentally friendly, and the high quality of the wood is perfect for use in plantation shutters. It’s strong enough to be used in various louvre sizes, and it offers a lovely surface for stains, varnishes and paints, so the shutters really do look fantastic. We offer 46 standard colours and stains, plus brand and custom colours, including Farrow & Ball, Dulux and Fired Earth, so customers have many options.”
