Southern Shutter Company | Board & Batten Shutters
Southern Shutter Company Board & Batten exterior wood shutters inspire a Mediterranean feel. By incorporating the Z-board, the Board & Batten exterior wood shutter is a classic on Ranch style architecture.
Constructed from 1" thick equally spaced, custom sized boards. Board width is determined by overall shutter width and Board count, which may be specified to achieve custom board counts.
Each Board & Batten exterior shutter joint has stainless steel screws, as well as a wood pegs, preventing any possibility of sagging over time. This time tested construction method is further enhanced by the use of Franklin type III, water proof exterior glue.
Western red Cedar, a naturally decay-resistant wood, is the preferred choice for this exterior shutter application. Straight and light in weight, nothing matches the performance of Western Red Cedar.

- Vertical Boards -- Board width determined by overall shutter width and number of boards as specified by the customer.
