Features and Benefits
Fold away: Their main appeal is their ability to fold away from an opening to give a completely unobstructed view.
Made to Stack: These shutters are made to stack against one another with a concertina effect. They can be stacked in either direction and the panels overlap so no light can come through them.
Versatile Design: Bi-fold shutters are versatile and can be made to sit at either 90 degrees to the opening so that light and air are let through while still maintaining privacy, or they can be made to sit flat against the opening.
Hidden Shutter Tracks: The tracks are hidden by our own attractive fascias, and ring pulls are built into the shutters for easy opening and closing. We can also supply flush bolts as an extra security feature.
Hinged shutters are the most popular type of shutters used. They are primarily used as window coverings, but can also be used for doorways depending on the material type and application.
Features and Benefits
Installation: These shutters can be installed in any room of the house.
Light Control: They are made with hinged panels that can be opened and folded flat against the wall to maximise light penetration and open up your view. They can also be closed tight to control light and offer privacy. The stiles of our shutters are rebated so they close tight against each other to stop all light coming through.
Temperature Control: Window shutters help to control the temperature inside a room. In winter the cold air is trapped between the shutter panel and the window, and conversely in summer the hot air will be trapped in the same way.
Custom Design: These shutters are perfect for areas that are difficult to decorate such as bay windows and arches as they can be custom manufactured to fit these specific shapes.
Unique Framing System: As part of our hinged shutter system, we supply a unique framing system to square off any skewed openings and ensure that there are no unsightly gaps in the shutters.
