Woodlore - EcoSmart Engineered Wood Shutters™
As a busy homeowner, you expect innovative products that retain their functionality and good looks without excessive maintenance. Woodlore® shutters are constructed with a solid MDF core – real wood in an advanced state – for incredible density and strength. Made from the wood of rapid-growth trees, Woodlore® shutters enable tree replenishment at an extremely accelerated rate.
In addition, Woodlore’s UV inhibitors do not release any volatile organic compound and protects against color fading and yellowing. Our patented polypropylene coating resists staining to ensure long-term performance in a variety of environments. Woodlore is the natural choice of shutter for your windows.

With paint, the white finish gleams softly off the polished surface. What ever your personal style - warm and rustic, or sleek and refined, you are sure to find the perfect match for your décor.
Norman Shutters Features
With more than 30 years of manufacturing excellence, we employ the same time-honored, woodworking techniques used by artisans of exceptional home furnishings. Rest assured that all Norman shutters are made of only the finest materials and handcrafted especially for you.
Reinforced Engineered Stile
Multiple layers of wood are bonded together to bolster the stability of the core of the stile – making for a robust and hearty support system for your shutters.
Prescription Wood Conditioning
Our trademarked wood drying technique dries the wood to emulate the environmental conditions of the location where the shutter will be installed. This practice also reduces post- installation shrinking and swelling.
Mortise and Tenon Joint
Traditionally used in demanding furniture and building construction, mortise and tenon joints are designed to withstand the shear stress and racking forces applied when operating a shutter.
Patented Polypropylene Coating
Superior to traditional paints, our patented Polypropylene coating makes shutter surface extremely durable and robust, resistant to cracking or chipping over time.
