The use of wood panels make the shutters much lighter than the MDF Antigua range. This reduced weight means that larger windows and expanses can be covered, with the ability to hinge 4 panels together, rather than 2 possible with Antigua and Bermuda. Even with more panels, the lighter hardwood helps prevent bowing and warping in the shutters. However, as the frames are still crafted from MDF, they are not suitable for rooms that suffer from increased levels of condensation.
Cuba shutters are available in 6 popular colours, and a range of louvre sizes that help bring your vision to light. Larger louvres allow more light to filter into your home, while smaller ones provide more internal privacy.

Cuba Shutters are suited to larger windows and spaces
As the combination of real hardwood and MDF is ideal for larger spaces, Cuba is perfect for use as a room divider, for example with a bi-fold track system. The panels are hinged together, and can simply be folded back against each other, to provide easy access when required. A 180° option is also available, allowing panels to be folded right back against the walls.
As a premium, made-to-measure product, A&E shutters can be used as bespoke wardrobe doors. Due to the lighter hardwood panels, Cuba is therefore ideal for larger built-in wardrobes, and with fixed louvres, is excellent for providing ventilation to your belongings.
The panels are manufactured in a mix of sustainable hardwoods, all with a linear grain that is excellent for painting, providing a flat and uniform finish. The sides of the panels (stiles) are plain, giving a crisp and clean look to the shutters.
