Full Height Shutters with Mid Rail
Full height shutters with mid rail are similar to traditional full height shutters but have an additional horizontal bar that usually runs across the center of the panel. This bar, called a mid rail, divides the shutter panel into two sections, each with its own set of louvers that can be adjusted independently. The mid rail is typically positioned at a height that provides privacy while still allowing light to enter the room.
Full height window shutters with mid rail are a great option for homeowners who want the functionality and versatility of the full height style but also require additional privacy or light control. By adjusting the louvers on the upper and lower sections of the panel separately, you can create different lighting and privacy levels in the same room. For example, you could close the bottom louvers for privacy while leaving the top ones open to let in the natural light.
The mid rail also has a role in strengthening the panels, that’s why these shutters are an appropriate option for huge atrium-style windows or other wide openings. We also try to align the mid rail with the horizontal transoms and glazing bars of the windows for an aesthetically pleasing product.
The privacy offered by full height shutters
Full length plantation shutters are an excellent option for homeowners who prioritize privacy. Unlike other window treatments such as blinds or curtains, these shutters provide complete height coverage, which means they offer complete privacy from the outside.
With the louvers closed, full height shutters easily create an effective barrier between your home and the outside world, preventing people from seeing in. This makes them an ideal option for rooms that face busy streets, public areas or close neighbors.
Additionally, full height shutters with mid rail allow you to adjust the top and bottom louvers independently, creating different privacy levels in the same room. You can close the bottom louvers for complete privacy while still allowing light to filter in through the top ones. Overall, full height shutters are a highly effective and stylish way to increase privacy in your home.
With their adjustable louvers, the full window shutters allow you to control the angle and direction of light, giving you the flexibility to create different lighting conditions and moods in a room. You can fully open the louvers to let in natural light and enjoy the view outside, or close them to create a cozy and intimate atmosphere.
The ability to control the direction of the light is particularly useful in rooms that get a lot of direct sunlight. By angling the louvers, you can block out harsh sunlight and prevent glare, while still allowing some natural light to filter in.
The contribution to the energy efficiency of your property
Our products contribute to the energy efficiency of your property in several ways. When louvers are closed, the shutters provide an additional layer of insulation by creating an air pocket between the shutter and the window, which helps to reduce the transfer of heat between the inside and outside of your home.
This trapped air acts as a buffer, slowing down the heat transfer process and keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
The materials the panels are made of are an excellent option for insulation. Wood is a natural insulator that helps keep heat inside; and the composite shutters are the best choice for homes that are prone to damp or moisture, as they are resistant to moisture and can help prevent mold and mildew.
By providing an additional layer of insulation, the shutters can help regulate the temperature inside your home, keeping it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This can help reduce your reliance on heating and cooling systems, resulting in lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint.
Increasing the property value with full height shutters
Full length plantation shutters have the potential to increase the value of your property as they are a stylish and timeless addition to any home, giving it a classic and sophisticated look that can appeal to potential buyers. And being a premium window treatment option, and having them installed in your house can increase its perceived value.
Secondly, our products are a long-lasting investment that can save you money in the long run. Unlike other window treatments that need to be replaced frequently, our shutters are durable and easy to maintain, making them a cost-effective option over time.
