Selecting the Right Operating System for your Shutters
All Hunter Douglas custom shutters are built to your window specifications and come in four slat sizes, 2 ½”, 3 ½” & 4 ½”. As a certified Hunter Douglas Shutter specialist, we’ll walk you through all the options available and then professionally measure your windows to ensure a perfect fit. Your new shutters will be installed by one of their certified shutter installers. Options available are:
Palmetto™ is an operating system that offers a traditional shutter style with a tilt bar placed on the front or back of the panels.
Bi-Fold Track System is a system that allows up to six panels hinged together and connected to a top track that supports and guides the folding movement.
TruView™ is a rear-tilt system that is barely noticeable from the front where you tilt one louver to the desired position and the rest follow.
ByPass Track System is a system that allows panels to slide past each other on top tracks to open and close easily.
Lantana™ is a patented, gear-driven system for one-touch control with no tilt bar to obstruct the view.
Hinged Panels is a system that allows panels that are hinged both together and to the window frame using T-posts in the center of the opening to increase design possibilities.
As you can see, there is more to picking out a shutter than just the color. Also, depending on the room and the look you are going for, you may only need to have a half shutter installed. This is particularly useful in bathrooms or kitchens where you want more light and total privacy is not an issue.
Stand alone or Add a Drape
Plantation shutters look fantastic alone, but if you want to add a bit of color or soften the look, consider adding drapes, drapery panels, or a fabric valance on top of your shutter. No matter what you decide, the shutter look will enhance any room in your home.
