Shutters Product Range
Apollo’s quality range of Plantation Shutters has been chosen from the best possible materials. The aim is to provide you with the choice of the best products available on the market that will suit your aesthetic and functional requirements.

Duratec has the polymer blade but is combined with the lightweight Western Red Cedar frame.
Smartwood® Shutters are strong, hard wearing, suitable for most areas of the home including wet areas. Some are suitable for external use.
Aluminium Shutters are available for interior and exterior use. Being of aluminium construction with a chip resistant powder coating, Aluminium Shutters can span wider areas than traditional Shutters, giving a clearer uninterrupted view.
Nothing matches the charm, smell or features of Apollo Cedar Shutters. Made from genuine Western Red Cedar they are lightweight yet strong.
Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) is classed as a softwood and comes from the Cypress family of trees.
Cedar Shutters are available in blends of light to medium and medium to dark. They can be ordered with an oiled or painted finish as standard. The Western Red Cedar comes from Canada, is a medium density timber that is very lightweight and also offers the best thermal properties (insulation) of all timber types. Cedar is not recommended for use in high traffic areas, or places that are prone to be bumped or knocked regularly. There will be some natural colour, wood grain and texture variation throughout.
Western Red Cedar is treated with a U.V. stabilised single-pack lacquer. However, lacquer finish is for interior use only.
Oiled Cedar should be used for exterior or a special external paint finish can be applied on request.
Basswood (Tilia Americana) is classed as a hardwood and comes from the Linden family of trees. Basswood is naturally a medium density timber and as such is ideal for Blinds and Shutters, being neither too heavy nor too light, but still offers a reasonable amount of hardness, thus giving a good resistance to knocks and bumps.
It has been selected especially for use in Blinds and Shutters due to its many qualities, including its resistance to bowing and warping when kiln dried. The timber is kiln dried to about 10% moisture, thus reducing the incidence of movement.
Roller Shutters combine the smooth good looks of the Roller Shutter system with the privacy and sense of security we all need in today’s world. European designed and made in Australia, Apollo’s Roller Shutters are tailor made to fit your windows.
Roller Shutters make being comfortable and secure in your home easier that ever whilst helping reduce your energy costs.
