Indoor Plantation Shutters
Horizon plantation shutters are designed and crafted specifically for the window in which they will be installed.
The production process of wood plantation shutters begins with responsibly harvested hand selected, kiln-dried domestic hardwood. It is then milled into plantation shutter components and cut to length. Stiles and rails are joined together using dependable time-tested two-inch dowels glued on one-inch centers.
Wood Plantation Shutters
Stained plantation shutters are fabricated from basswood, a beautiful light-grained hardwood. Poplar, a strong straight hardwood, is used to construct painted plantation shutters. Both woods possess qualities that result in attractive, durable, furniture-quality indoor plantation shutters. Horizon custom wood window shutters have a 10 year warranty on workmanship and moving parts. Paint finishes are accompanied by a 10 year warranty, and stains are warranted for 2 years. Frames and hang strips are manufactured from the same material and finished simultaneously.
Plantation Poly Shutters
Horizon plantation poly shutters are constructed from dense polymer foam. Synthetic components are pressed and milled with a smooth surface. The resulting shutter is extremely durable and attractive. Poly shutters are painted using the same method as wood plantation shutters.
Elliptical louvers rotate on grooved nylon bushings with stainless steel pins tensioned to dependably maintain any desired position. Epoxy coated staples guaranteed not to separate connect each louver to a unifying tilt bar.
The construction of Horizon shutters is impeccable, but small details make them really stand out. Panels are mortised for hinges to achieve a tight fit against the mounting surface. Edges where two plantation shutters meet are rabbeted to reduce undesirable light gaps. These intricate aspects are often overlooked by others in the marketplace.
Assembled indoor shutters proceed to the finishing department, where either stain or paint is applied. Unlimited color options will both complement decor and preserve the window shutters for years to come. All wood interior shutters are thoroughly sanded prior to being painted or stained. Painted shutters are then sealed, re-sanded, primed, sanded again, and covered with two satin-finish top coats. Stained shutters are sprayed, hand rubbed, sealed, re-sanded, and protected with two clear top coats. Interior plantation shutters are allowed to thoroughly dry before further handling.
Individual plantation shutter panels are assembled into complete units with all hardware and frames, attached. Following a final inspection, plantation shutters are prepared for installation and carefully packed into heavy cartons for shipping.

I received my shutter order last week and they are superb! Yesterday a friend and I installed them and what a difference. The shutters were placed to separate our dining room and a new room addition. When I ordered the indoor plantation shutters I really wasn't sure whether I got the measurements right. To my surprise they fit perfectly. The quality of the craftsmanship is outstanding. Thank you for doing a fantastic job with my order. The stain could not have matched any better.
I have the happiest wife in the world!!! The order was received yesterday, right on the expected day, via Fed Ex and in excellent condition. Beautiful workmanship and the ease of installation was great! Know we will be back for more wood plantation shutters at a later date. A local contractor's wife is eager to see the finished product, so this could bring you additional business. Thank you so very much for your help.
