Shutters explained here
Shutter parts glossary
- A shutter Frame houses the shutter panel. A frame can fix directly to your window or into the wall inside a recess.
- The Mouse hole is recessed in the rail, it’s where the front push rod sits when the slats are tilted closed.
- Top and bottom Rails construct the panel and enclose the shutter slats. A middle rail can be added where required.
- Slats tilt and rotate to control the light levels and view, we offer 4 slat sizes.
- Stiles are the vertical rails either side of the panel.
- The Central Tilt Rod is a thin vertical wood bar connected to the front of slats. When moved it controls the slat position.
Central Tilt Rod A thin wooden tilt rod on the front of the panel. It is used to open and close the slats and is the more traditional design option.
Hidden Rod A mechanism is hidden within the stile which connects all the slats. Moving a single slat at the front of panel with your finger controls all the slats in the panel. This is a more contemporary design option.
