Recent blog posts related to Infinity Shutters™ by K&B:
Are Infinity Shutters™ by K&B Australian Made?
Yes they are! Read more here on how the certification process works.
When Can I Expect Delivery of my Infinity Shutters™ from K&B?
K&B's Australian Made, custom made and high quality Infinity Shutters™ are deliverable within 3 weeks in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba.
How Strong are Infinity Shutters™?
The rails, stiles and louvres of Infinity Shutters™ are all reinforced with aluminium inserts. They are made from a Polymer-Carbon-Glass Fibre composite (polymer foam). These two factors ensure your plantation shutters won't crack, chip, split or warp; a clear representation of increased strength over other competing window treatments, including blinds (though some people do refer to window shutters as plantation blinds). Infinity Shutters™ were specifically designed to endure the harsh UV rays of our Australian climate.
Are Plantation Shutters Suitable for Outdoor Applications?
Infinity Shutters™ by K&B are PERFECT for indoor shutters OR outdoor window shutters. However, we would recommend our aluminium louvres in areas of high water contact.
For coastal areas, stainless steel hinges are available on request.
Can I Use the Infinity Shutters™ as a Room Divider?
Short answer: yes. The versatility of K&B's Australian Made window shutters allow them to be used in a variety of applications - an internal room divider being one such example.
What are the Diffferent Operation Options?
There are a range of options to customise your panels to just the way you want them. Infinity Shutters™ can be fixed, hinged, sliding or bi-fold. Follow the links at the top of this page to view pictures of each.
Is the Tilt-Rod Visible, and How Do I Rotate the Louvres?
The tilt-rod is not visible in K&B's Infinity Shutters™ or AllviewiQ PVC Shutters allowing an unobstructed view. It's tucked in behind the stile.
The louvre blades are easily adjustable by moving any of the blades up or down with your hand. The hidden tilt-rod connects the blades (louvres) meaning one blade can control the rotation of them all. In some circumstances it may be desirable for a 'split-rotation' system whereby your shutter is split in two and either the top half or bottom half can be opened separately. This is also sometimes referred to as "split-tilt".
What Louvre Blade Sizes are Available?
The louvre blades of K&B's Infinity Shutters™ shutters are available in 3 sizes: 64mm, 89mm and 114mm. 89mm is the standard in the industry and what is used in approximately 90% of orders.
How Do Infinity Shutters™ Compare to Timber Shutters?
- 1. Infinity Shutters™ have a 20 Year Warranty compared to an industry standard of approximately 5 years for timber shutters in Australia.
- 2. Timber quality varies by source. Over time, even the highest quality timber shutters can sag due to our harsh Australian climate. Combine this with the potential for an inferior timber and it becomes a risky investment with elements out of your control. Infinity Shutters™ are made from a Polymer-Carbon-Glass Fibre composite which is environmentally friendly, hypo-allergenic, fire retardant and non-carcinogenic.
- 3. Timber shutters require repainting every few years whereas Infinity Shutters™ require little to no maintenance, and absolutely no painting whatsoever.
Are You That Company With the Radio Ad?
We are! In a market place unfortunately dominated by inferior quality imported shutters, we felt it was important to get the message out that we could deliver our Australian made and custom made Infinity Shutters™ in just 3 weeks compared to the 8-12 weeks offered by our competitiors.
"Beautiful Shutters, Fitted Fast" isn't just a slogan, it's a promise to our customers - present and future.
Are Blinds Cheaper Than Plantation Shutters?
Blinds are undoubtedly cheaper than shutters, but for good reason - they just don't last. By comparison, Infinity Shutters™ by K&B have a 20 Year Warranty. Put simply: plantation window shutters are an investment for your "forever home". Blinds are a short-term fix for an investment property or house you intend to move out of.
Also, plantation shutters have no cords or pulleys that pose safety risks to children.
Additional Information incl. Warranty and Colour Options
Infinity Shutters™ shutters are: hypo-allergenic, recyclable, known to insulate far better than timber, fire-retardant and non-carcinogenic.
Four colour options are available: Vivid White, Bright White, Classic White and Off-White. Each can bring a feeling of coolness and lightness to any room.
Infinity Shutters™ come with a 20 year warranty, but with appropriate care can be expected to last much longer.
