Wider Panels


The biggest problem when timber is used for window furnishings is water. Nexus50 is Luxsol’s hybrid solution where a wider panel is required and there is the likelihood of moisture getting in the window or there is a condensation problem. Most shutter materials are moisture inappropriate and best avoided in these situations.

Nexus50 has the benefit of reducing the weight of the product and minimising the risk of moisture ingress. With the use of Poly100 synthetic material framing and for peace of mind Poly100 has been REACH tested and is shown to meet and exceed Australian standards for VOC emissions. Many PVC products are over-specified to try and replace timber due to its lower price point. 

This compromises the performance of the shutter due to the weight of PVC with panels dropping when opened. Nexus50 uses Paulownia timber for the louvres, which is a lightweight hardwood timber. With its very high strength-to-weight ratio, Paulownia is an exceptionally stable material. Nexus50, with the timber being water-resistant (not waterproof) and the frame using Poly100 is the perfect hybrid product.
