How to Open and Close Shutter Louvers

Danmer makes it easy to get custom interior shutters for any window or door in your home. Our Thermalite Shutters, UltraLuxe Shutters and Stained Wood Plantation Shutters come with several options to choose from, including various tilt rod options.

Standard Tilt Rod

A tilt rod is a dowel you see fastened down the front center of the shutter louvers. This rod works to open or close all of the louvers simultaneously when pulled up or down. Tilt rods such as these are most common, and are typically associated with a traditional shutters look and feel in one’s home.

 

Shutter Tilt Rod Options

 

Hidden Tilt

This is a totally invisible mechanism within the shutter stiles. It's a more contemporary look and the user opens or closes the shutter panel by tilting or pressing one louver by hand.

 

When to Choose Standard vs Hidden Tilt Rod

There’s no real hard and fast rule about when to choose one type of tilt rod over another. Most homeowners who choose Hidden tilt rods do so to enhance the Contemporary or Modern look of the shutter panels in the room where the shutters reside.

The hidden tilt rod also enhances the view that is available through the open shutter louvers as there is no vertical tilt rod to be seen. The standard tilt rod is the more typical choice for Homeowners as this design element reinforces the timeless and traditional nature of the Plantation Shutter design as it was introduced hundreds of years ago.

A Quick Word About Our Warranty

Beautiful custom shutters from Danmer have the most unique warranty in the industry. Did you know that only Danmer has a warranty so strong that it is transferrable to the next homeowner if, and when, you sell your home? This will actually raise the resale value of your home.

And our custom window shutters include our patented Duraglide™ Louver Tension System so that your louvers will never need tightening or adjusting. And our fastening system of nylon bushing with stainless steel pins ensures that your tilt rods will never loosen or pull out.
