Tilt Rods and Mouse Holes
Tilt rods are used on operable louvers to open or close the louvers. However, for customers who do not need operable louvers, but still appreciate the aesthetic, tilt rods can be added for decorative purposes.
A mouse hole is the notch that houses the bottom of the tilt-rod when in a closed position.
Beading & Overlap Rabbeting
Overlap rabbeting, also known as “ship-lap,” allows for functional shutters to overlap when closed. This treatment is frequently requested to provide an added degree of historical detail.
Beading detail is a decorative touch incised down the back of the rabbeted stile to add character to the shutter.
Our cutouts are a way to personally customize your exterior shutters. With hundreds of cutouts available, we must have something that catches your attention. If not, we will custom-design any cutout for your shutters, as long as it fits on the panel! Cutouts can only be added to panel shutters or combination louver shutters that include a panel section.
Rails & Stiles
Rails are the horizontal cross pieces of the shutter which determine a shutter’s panel configuration, its look and its character. Each rail ends in a tenon that fits into an opening (mortise) in the stile. You can customize size for a distinctive look.
Stiles are the upright, vertical framing members of a shutter. The tenons of the rails fit into stile’s rectangular openings (mortises). Some projects require unique sizing.
