Traditional shutters are defined by their narrow 1-1/4 inch louvers. A wedge-shape and centered ridge give the traditional louver a distinctive shape and appearance. The louvers are precisely tensioned to remain in the desired position. A vertical tilt bar serves as the control mechanism that unifies the louver location. A divider rail is automatically inserted when panels are 40 inches or greater in height, creating a top louver section and a bottom louver section.
Also called colonial shutters, this particular shutter style is often used in quaint intimate spaces. The smaller louvers tend to bring focus to the interior of the room, but can be fully opened for light and visibility.
Stock size traditional shutters are only slightly different from those that are custom made. Stock panels use a wider side style so they may be trimmed after they are received for minor width adjustment. The top and bottom rails are of sufficient size so they may be trimmed to reduce the height. Stock shutter are also only sold unfinished, but they are ready to prime and paint or stain when they are received.
