Window Shutters - Design is everything
The ideal choice when you need to maximum light but stay in control of your privacy. Split louver shutters offer the best of both worlds by providing independently controlled top and bottom louver sections within the same shutter without the need for a deep physical intermediate rail. This is achieved by stopping the hidden control rod at a certain louver and restarting it again at the next one instead of having a single continuous control running all the way from top to bottom. A simple solution which effectively creates two sets of louvers within the same panel. Tilt the top set to filter the light coming in when the sun is at its peak, tilt the bottom set in a different direction to keep prying eyes at bay. Whatever you choose, our split louver shutters are beautifully tailored to suit so they will fit your windows perfectly.
Our track mounted plantation shutters are the perfect solution for those troublesome wider openings like patio doors, French doors, room dividers or openings where its just not practical to mount the shutters in the more traditional way. These shutter installations can either be installed as bi-folding plantation shutters or sliding plantation shutters, gliding effortlessly away to reveal the full, unobstructed panorama behind. As they are securely mounted and supported from the discreet, high-quality top track and additionally guided by an even more discreet low profile high quality bottom track, operating your shutters is a complete dream. With the same uncompromising functionality you can expect from any regular shutter installation but with the peace of mind that its been engineered and designed to stand the test of time, don't be too surprised at just how practical our plantation shutters on tracks really are.
Effectively two sets of shutters installed one on top of the other covering the whole height of the window. Tier on tier is an ideal choice for homes with windows facing onto busy streets. The word for tier on tier shutters is versatility as this configuration offers a multitude of opportunity. The top and bottom sets open independently, rather than the whole panel folding as one to allow maximum control over light and privacy. Tier on tier shutters provide the unique ability to maximise light by folding back just the top set of panels whilst keeping the bottom set across the window. Perfect if you need additional flexibility or have an interior detail like a sink tap or dressing table that affects the operation of the shutters at a lower level. The truly unique quality that only shutters can provide. Open both panels in the summer for maximum light, keep everything buttoned up and cosy for those long winter nights when you need it most.
