Louvered Plantation Shutters for Style and ProtectionAdd to My Luxx Living
Protecting your home from the elements now can be as much a lifestyle and design opportunity as it is a security solution.
Outdoor living and weather control solutions have been a popular element of the Alfresco movement growing in Europe and Australia. Now, it is extending to the United States.
Plantation shutters are a dynamic complement to screen porches, enclosed patios, outdoor kitchens or any space where you need to tame the weather.
These aluminum shutters combine cutting -edge engineering with a beautiful design to produce a shutter unlike anything seen on the market to date. Other wind-rated and security aluminum shutters sacrifice beauty in order to gain functionality. Outdoor plantation shutters unite design with usability.
With blades that are fully lockable at any position and a frame designed to conceal the internal blade rotation mechanism, this two-part aluminum shutter frame is designed to hide all screws resulting in no visible fixings.
These shutters are available in sliding, bi-fold and fixed panel models with a wide range of powder-coat finishes.
Their patented design allows you to adjust the louver blades and lock them in any position for precision control over the elements. The blades can also be locked completely to protect outdoor kitchens, patio furniture, grills, pool supplies and the home from vandalism, theft, and wildlife.
Louvered exterior plantation shutters can be used in:
- Patio/Outdoor kitchen areas
- Balcony protection
- Pergola and sunroom shading
- Privacy screening
- Portico and veranda enclosures
Plantation shutters represent a new level of sophistication and elegance for homes. They are available in a variety of styles, colors and materials to match the interior and exterior, while protecting – even adding to – the home’s value.
They also can be custom fit for your window sizes and shapes. And they are rated more energy-efficient than many other window treatments, thus helping on heating and cooling bills. When properly installed, plantation shutters never require replacements. They require minimum upkeep.
Because they can be crafted in a variety of slat sizes with louvers ranging in size from just over 1 inch to more than 6 inches, they significantly control the amount of sunlight penetrating through glass. They maximize ventilation on the one hand and privacy on the other.
You can choose numerous styles including double-hug, which are particularly attractive for kitchens and bathrooms, where the bottom louvers can remain closed for privacy and the top ones open for maximum and visibility.
