If you are in the market for shutters and have found yourself comparing a few different styles, you may also be a little confused. How are you supposed to compare apples to apples if you are not really sure what some of the parts are?
Could two different shutters have the same parts under different names? If you are feeling a little overwhelmed with the shopping process, this glossary should help.
Parts of Shutters
Panel – The panel is the main component of shutter installation. It is traditionally a rectangular section with a hinge that allows it to open, and it contains all of the louvers.
Frame – Shutters are generally ordered with a frame. The panels are mounted right inside this, and it is mounted to the window.
Stile – The louvers of the shutters rotate between the stiles.
Louvers – These are the horizontal slats that tilt to open and close, either allowing the light in, or providing complete privacy.
Rails – Many stiles will have rails that serve the purpose of providing structure and stability.
