Plantation Shutters

When it comes to Plantation Shutters, every day, we get asked questions like – “What’s the difference between X product and Y Brand?”

It’s not an incorrect question at all. In fact, (Because JHS Blinds and Screens Sydney share only the facts) there are slight differences in all Plantation Shutters but we can’t answer your question until we question you in return – “What do you want out of, your Plantation Shutters?”

Water resistant – Most engineered poly material Shutters are ideal for wet areas. Benefits of this specification is that they will not rot, absorb moisture, delaminate (break into layers) or even promote mould. “Ok, Bathroom it is then…. NEXT!”

Fancy words – Do your research before obtaining a Quote. There are many types of materials out there on the market and doing some research in the raw materials of Plantation Shutters can help minimise the confusion. There’s nothing wrong with using fancy words to make you go WOW but at the same time it can help you understand what it is, you are actually paying for.

We’ll let you in on a little SECRET…. Reinforced Polymer Extrusion – AKA – PVC. AKA – Plastic. That fancy word you read right there? Plastic, that’s all it is…. plastic guys!

Sometimes you need the icing on top of the cake to make it look good, but at the same time that icing oozes a lot of benefits. Just like PVC Plantation Shutters, they carry heaps of mouth-watering points for the chosen window.

  • As mentioned before – Water Resistant
  • The real wood look with the benefit of poly materials
  • Termite resistant and does not support any bacterial activity
  • Will not crack, sag, warp or split


Well if Covid totally stuffed up your chance of travelling to North America, then why not bring North America to you?

This is where the next material comes in handy.

What are Veri Shades?

Made from 100% Polyester Woven Fabric – Veri Shades have the look and feel of curtains in addition to the versatility of Blinds. JHS Blinds and Screens can turn your home into a cord free, motorised sanctuary.

Different to other types of Blinds, Veri Shades can be installed onto large openings and can span up to six metres. And do not be too stressed with thinking ahead about maintenance. These beautiful shades can be easily taken down and washed separately then replaced as easy as 1,2,3.

What makes Veri Shades so enticing?

With no weights or chains, you can walk through them whether they are open or closed. Veri Shades move with you then settle back into place. Peacefully.

Speaking of peacefully, Veri Shades have close to no sound at all when being operated. With no cords, weights or chains, these curtains speak for themselves! (Get it?!)

Being a family company, we understand how important it is to keep our little ones safe. Another benefit in having Veri Shade installed in your home by JHS Blinds and Screens is that there are no cords or chains attached. Operation and control is done by using the wand which means it keeps our loved ones and pets safe!

Motorise your Veri Shade by JHS Blinds and Screens and reap the benefits of luxury and admiration from all who enter your home (or office).

A second-hand victim of the Corona Outbreak – JHS


If I could take a screenshot of what I was looking at before I started writing this article, then the only thing you would see would be a blank page.

This is exactly how a lot of us are feeling like right now – GLOBALLY…

We feel Blank. Lost. Helpless. And all we want to do is fill up the page.

We want to fill it up with information, answers and confirmation.

JHS Blinds and Screens has not written a personal Blog for a very long time – Most of you have always read about our work, our history and our commitment to the Blinds and Screens Industry in Sydney. You have read about our professionalism, coming firsthand from the woman of the business.

Today, I write differently. Today, I get personal. (with a twist of selling).

Most of you now have come to the realisation that things are different. People around us are different. The world has turned into one massive ball of fire. A fire that continues to spread when embers get thrown around with the wind, travelling from one tree to the next.

The only way to stop these embers from travelling is to stay indoors. So, welcome to my home readers. It is now day 3 of Isolation at the JHS Family home.

Along with my two young children and amazing Husband (which is still working), the JHS family continue to stick together to dodge any obstacles we encounter. We continue to service our customers until being told otherwise from the “big guys”.

Whether it be a simple FREE Measure and Quote or a simple phone consultation. JHS Blinds and Screens are still here to service our Sydney community.

From home-schooling a 6-year-old to controlling an active 4-year-old, running a business and household is not plain and simple. JHS, on the other hand, create a plain and simple transition for your next new build, renovation or extension.

From the first point of contact (Keep it 1.5 metres distance please) to the day of installation, JHS Blinds and Screens will make your home stand out from the rest. (Gloves and Face masks included).

Another reason why staying at home these days to avoid the Coronavirus is not a bad idea. You get the best views of the best workmanship JHS has to offer. We will take necessary precautions when entering your home, keeping your health a priority as well as your Blinds, Shutters and Security Doors.

So, from all of us at the JHS Family home we wish you all to stay safe, stay home and stay positive.
