Norman Woodlore MDF

An iconic choice with renowned durability, strength and simplicity.

Resists peeling, cracking, chipping and yellowing.

No wonder it’s No.1 among the world’s homeowners.

Now with a next-generation formulation utilising 30% more wood in Woodlore’s premium engineered wood composite core – real wood in an advanced state – Woodlore is ever more stable and robust, and stronger than solid wood shutters, free from any of wood’s naturally occurring imperfections and has higher resistance to heat damage such as warping, sagging and cupping compared to PVC or vinyl shutters. It is also big on safety, VOC safe and CARB P2 compliant for off-gassing.

Woodlore features an exclusive patented medical-grade safe polypropylene coating with a UV inhibitor. Smooth, durable and robust, the coating provides extra protection against the knocks and bumps of today’s busy family lifestyles and resists fading and yellowing under the harsh Australian sun.

Norman Woodlore Plus

Advanced strength, technology and options. It’s Woodlore but more.

Woodlore Plus is a hybrid shutter utilising a lightweight yet durable ABS for its louvres. The louvres are made with high grade recyclable ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) built with aircraft inspired construction for maximum strength and stiffness.

In good company
ABS is a material often used in high-endurance applications such as appliances, car parts and helmets. These product features combined with an enhanced Engineered Wood Composite stile core make the Woodlore Plus shutter program stronger, tougher and more versatile than ever before.

  • Woodlore Plus’s advanced design facilitates wider panels, over 20% wider than Woodlore. Available up to 920mm, which means it can span wider than many PVC products with much less weight.
  • Environmentally Friendly and Safe – All the materials chosen for Norman shutters are done with the environment and your family’s safety in mind. From sustainable and legally sourced wood products to safe and recyclable high-grade polymers and wood composites. Nurtured from our forests to our factories to your home.
  • Trouble free “Invisible Tilt” system supplied with no surcharge. The louvres move in unison like magic with no visible tilt rod. Invisible Easy Tilt’s louvre drive gear system is built into each stile and operates louvres flawlessly with precision light and view control.
  • More colour choices with over 23 standard colours or optional custom colours and a waterproof option. Now Woodlore Plus (G2) louvres are 15% thicker and have engineered timber louvre inserts.
  • The Laminated Veneered Lumber (LVL) core, means the imperfections of timber have been removed, which results in a more structurally sound shutter when compared with competitor’s timber shutters.
  • ABS louvers to provide long term stability, durability and functionality. ABS has high impact resistance and the ability to remain strong and durable in even the most trying environments. Available in 5 louvre sizes, 47mm, 63mm, 76mm, 89mm and 114mm.
  • ABS is harmless in that it has no known carcinogens, and there are no known adverse health effects related to exposure to ABS. The same cannot be said for PVC, with the EU banning many products containing phthalates. When PVC is just heated, it can release carcinogenic vapours in the air.
  • Reinforced Engineered Wood Stiles – stiles, rails and mounting frames made from sustainable wood, grown and processed in Australia, proudly supporting Australian forestry and manufacturing industries. Multiple layers of hardwood veneer are bonded together to strengthen the core of the stile providing a lifetime of durability and stability.
