  • Traditions Wood Shutters

  • Graber® Traditions Wood Shutters

    SWFcontract Traditions Wood Shutters are built to exacting quality standards. Each piece of hardwood is inspected individually, followed by a three-step drying process which prevents cracking and warping. Next, skilled technicians—experts in milling, sanding, painting, and staining—devote their attention to crafting the highest-quality shutters.

  • MATERIALS AND TREATMENT

    • Louvers measure 2½", 3½", or 4½".
    • Shutters are made exclusively from North American hardwoods, whose favorable characteristics include light weight, consistent color, hardness, attractive grain, and structural stability.
    • North American hardwood resists warping and cracking better than other widely used woods.
    • Paint grade consists of finger joined hardwood. Painting takes place following assembly and includes multiple coats of premium, UV-cured primer.
    • Stain grade consists of sorted hardwood per light, medium, and dark color. Staining takes place prior to assembly and includes multiple applications of quality pigments and lacquers.
    • The color palette coordinates with 2" wood horizontal blinds.

    FRAME TYPES

    • Inside mount applications include hang-strip, direct mount, and Z-frame.
    • Outside mount applications include L-frame and deco frame.
    • Window squareness: If a window is measured diagonally and it measures more than ¼" out of square, then an outside mount shutter is required.
    • 12 frame configurations are available.
    • 38 panel configurations are available.
