Join the longest established and largest distributor of shutters in the UK

The use of shutters within UK homes has grown significantly over recent years: the domestic window coverings market was estimated to be worth £1.52bn in 2019, which reflects strong and steady growth of 13% since 2015. And there’s evidence to suggest the market hasn’t peaked, as shutters become ever more affordable.

Offering consumers insulation in winter and cooler homes in summer, our window coverings support consumers with the rising cost of energy bills. Shuttercraft also contribute to global sustainability by planting a tree for every shutter sold via Ecologi.
