Technically, there are more, but we will not get into the various combination at this time. The first is full height, one tier, shutters with no division. This describes shutter units that extend from the bottom of the window to the top with a single bank of louvers (minus the top and bottom rail).
This entry is the second in our series titled “Shutter Details”. A shutter unit is created when panels, hinges and hang strips combine to cover a window. Narrow windows can be covered with a single panel, but most windows require multiple panels. Improperly sized or machined interior shutters can result in an unsightly vertical gap between shutter panels (see picture). There are two ways to avoid this unfortunate conclusion.
One of the most common terms we hear is “bifold shutters”. Most often, but not always people are describing a four panel shutter unit. Of the four panels, two panels hinged together with a hanging hinge on the left side of the left panel that attaches to the side of the window opening, allowing the shutters to open to the left side of the window. There are also two panels with the same configuration that open to the right side of the window.
