For every composite naysayer who complains, “it’s not real wood,” you’ll find us enthusiastically responding with this truth:
But the benefits don’t stop there.
Shutters made from Extira composite are literally good for the planet. 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.
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.
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 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%.
