Specialty Shaped Shutter Panels
Carolina Shutter’s specialty-shaped shutter panels and Pattern
HorizontalTM shutter panels from O’Hair feature an industry first in contour design allowing all louvers (including fractional top louvers) to operate in full rotation (same as rectangular panels). Enjoy the full range of light control and view that this remarkable design delivers; available in conventional center tilt (see image to the right) or the unique HorizonTM tilt system (see image illustration in the True Contour section).
Rails are contoured to the 1/16″ for tailoring that is “true-to-window.” Louvers, as well as rails, are milled using computer controlled machining for an accurate and repeatable fit.
Every louver fully rotates (same as rectangular panels) and is controlled either by a tilt rod, or in the case of louvers above the tilt rod, by use of a rear linkage system (see above).
The Pattern HorizontalsTM design preserves critical joinery details (standard to all shutter panels from O’Hair) for extraordinary strength. Contour rails are joined to stiles using mortise and tenon, wet-to-wet application of glue, and “draw-tight” assembly screws. Contour louvers pivot on monolithic tenons (formed from the louver profile itself).
Pattern HorizontalsTM shutter panels are available in all O’Hair surface types, louver spacings, and tilt systems.
