For every composite naysayer who complains, “it’s not real wood,” you’ll find us enthusiastically responding with this truth:
Extira is a treated wood composite panel product made from wood fiber, phenolic resins, zinc borate and a water repellent. While the wood fibers make up 90% of the material, the zinc borate — an EPA-registered biocide — works to control potential rot and other wood-destroying organisms.
So, where does the sustainability come in? Well, Extira is made from wood that has no commercial timber value. By utilizing this locally-sourced “leftover wood” without added urea formaldehyde, Extira panels contribute to industry green building programs and comply with the California Air Resources Board’s Airborne Toxic Control Measure 93120.
But the benefits don’t stop there. Extira composite shutters are also resistant to moisture, rot and termites — making them the perfect outdoor shutter to stand up to the elements. With an unlaminated, one-piece solid substrate, Extira panels are high-quality, strong and made to last.
And we forgot the best part: they’re also extremely affordable.
A: Medium-density fiberboard is another type of engineering wood known for durability. However, in internal bucket testing that compared the two materials head-to-head, Extira exhibited substantially small edge cracks after exposure and air drying.
A: Actually, you can probably get even an even more specific look. You’ll have the ability to choose the color and texture to make your shutters exactly what you want.
A: With an industry-leading 10-year limited warranty, Extira shutters are clearly built to last.
Because while Extira composite shutters may be 90% wood, you can trust in their performance 100%.
