Why Modern louvre shutters


Modern’s louvres are designed and manufactured in Australia for Australian weather conditions. This means long-lasting quality and faster, more reliable delivery.

Shade the sun

Thanks to their tilting slats, you have complete control of the amount of sun that enters your outdoor area. Tilt the slats to allow a cooling breeze through in summer while still shielding you from the sun’s rays.

Control the breeze

Block the breeze in your outdoor area and stay comfortable all-year round. Felt wool seals on the slats and around the frame further reduces weather penetration when in a closed position.

Strongest domestic louvres on the market

All fixings for our louvre shutters are built with marine grade steel and super-hard aluminium to ensure long-lasting functionality. Specialist slat design ensures maximum rigidity and weather resistance. Virtually no maintenance is required.

Louvre shutters FAQs

How long does it take to order and install Modern louvre shutters?

Modern louvre shutters can be installed as quickly as 4-6 weeks after measuring, depending on your chosen colour.

What are Modern louvre shutters made of? Are they aluminium shutters?

Modern louvre shutter blades are the strongest and best-made louvre shutters on the market. The blades (also known as slats) are manufactured using 6063 grade aluminium specified to T5 hardness, while all fixtures and fittings are made using 304/316 marine grade stainless steel.

What can louvre shutters be used for?

Louvre shutters are incredibly versatile outdoor fittings. They can provide extra sun shading and weather protection in outdoor areas such as balconies or courtyards, as well as added privacy.

Can Modern louvre shutters be customised?

Yes, Modern louvre shutters are fully customisable. They are available in fixed, hinged, bi-fold or stacking installation options, as well as many colours. Blade operation is also fully adjustable.

What’s the difference between plantation shutters and louvre shutters?

The word louvre denotes horizontal parallel slats (louvre blades) in a door, window, or window covering, which can slope open or closed, or angled in between. Louvre shutters keep weather out and/or allow for air flow in.

Plantation shutters are indoor louvre shutters typically made with wood, PVC (plastic) or Insulite. Plantation shutters are interior window furnishings made from vertical slats which can be opened and closed to allow for sunlight and breeze.

Outdoor louvre shutters are external shutters made from weather-resistant material like marine grade steel and robust aluminium. Used on the exterior of a home, the movable aluminium louvre panels allow sun and air to get through but keep rain out.

What are the advantages of Modern’s aluminium louvre shutters?

Compared to interior venetian blinds that twist and break and are hard to keep clean and maintain, Modern’s louvre shutters (indoor and out) are beautiful to look at, easy to maintain and use, versatile, and add long-term value to your home. Modern’s outdoor louvre shutters are also Australian designed and Australian made. This means they’re manufactured for Australian weather conditions, are highly durable and with a faster, more reliable delivery.

All fixings of Modern’s louvre shutters are built with marine grade steel and robust aluminium to ensure long-lasting functionality with virtually no maintenance required. Plus Modern offer up to a 10 year warranty across our product range. External shutters not only help keep the weather out but also serve as privacy screens, well-suited to any outdoor area including patios, pergolas and courtyards.

Louvre shutters with a difference

Modern is one of the country’s leading suppliers and manufacturers of louvre shutters – we’ve been manufacturing and installing them for over forty years (and we’ll be doing it for many years more).

Over that time, we’ve invested years into research and development to create what we believe are the best looking, longest lasting and most functional louvre shutters on the Australian market.

Unlike louvres from other brands, our louvre shutters look just as good now as they will in ten years – they’ll also swing just as smoothly on their hinges and swivel their blades. That’s because we’ve designed every component in our shutters to be near unbreakable, even with frequent use and constant exposure to the harsh Australian elements.
