SHUTTERS IN ONE SINGLE PANEL HIGH - THE FULL HEIGHT SHUTTER
Most installations are well suited to this shutter format, they have wide appeal and along with all the other shutters in our offerings have superb aesthetics, enhancing ambiance in any room.
Full height louvred shutters are classically simple and by virtue of this suit the widest range of windows found in both very modern and traditional homes. Full height plantation shutters are optimised by the fact that the shutter panel itself is one piece, running as it does from top to bottom of the window or door. Door applications for plantation shutter have been supplied in the past with solid bases - that is the louvres are only seen in the upper portion and in this instance the louvres can as an option be fixed with an attitude of up or downward facing deleting the tilt rods completely making for a clean look.
If the full height of the panel is very tall, above 1800mm, then a stiffening horizontal “rail” is mandatory. This is done for maximum stiffness integrity and to ensure durability. However, should you want a rail fitted in panels shorter than 1800mm, say to suit glazing bars or as a feature, then that’s not a problem and has no cost implications. This rail of course breaks up the tilt rods, the part that controls the angle of the shutter louvres, into two pieces. However it is possible to also break the control mechanisms into two or more sections to make privacy and outlooks controllable. We have pictures of these split arrays in our extensive galleries of plantation shutter installations
