As the name says, these custom-made indoor shutters cover the entire height of your window opening. As a practical and elegant window treatment, full-height shutters help you keep your room cool when it’s hot outside and warm when it’s cold. They also help provide extra security, privacy and soundproofing. Going with this shutter style is a sure bet! Let’s talk about other benefits of going with a Full Height shutter design.
[more-or-less-start] Full Height shutters are the most popular type of shutter design. Not only because they can be tailored to meet your needs but also because they are aesthetically pleasing. So, you ask, how can it be made to suit my lifestyle? Well, you can request a Divider Rail be added. A divider rail is a stationary piece that runs horizontally across the panel. It allows independent slat movement for those on top of the divider rail from those below the rail. This means you can have your top slats opened to let light in and the bottoms closed for privacy reasons. This flexibility is sure to give you optimum light control to ensure your privacy is never compromised. The divider rail height location is something you choose yourself. You can either place it two thirds from the bottom up, half way or towards the bottom. As long as it’s within reason, we can make it happen.
For windows with breaks or locks halfway up, we suggest ordering the divider rail to be at a height that will cover the break or lock in the window. Measuring the divider rail height for this type of application is simple. For inside mounts, just measure from inside the opening from the bottom up to the center of the break/lock in the window. The center of the divider rail will land on that dimension. Although we do our best to keep it at that exact location, often times, it can be necessary for our manufacturing team to adjust the divider rail height. In the event it needs to be moved by over 3/4 “, we will contact you for approval. For an outside mount, simply measure from inside of the window opening up to the center point of what you want covered, then add the width of the bottom frame if you are selecting one. Please refer to our measuring guides, and as always, if in doubt then contact us. We have a team of shutter experts waiting to assist you.
Full height shutters, as mentioned, cover the entire height of the opening. For homes with low ceilings, going with a full height can be the best option. Full height shutters can help elongate the look of a wall and create the feeling of a high ceiling. Inversely, for customers with high ceilings who want to bring the focal point towards the floor, ordering full height with a divider rail is the best way to go.
