Creative Ways to Hang Custom Shutters

Once you choose to install Hunter Douglas plantation shutters, the next step is to decide how you want to hang your new shutters. The Hunter Douglas plantation shutters can be installed through a variety of different operating systems, that each offer their own unique set of benefits. The experienced team at Spencer Carlson can work with you to choose the right operating system in order to meet all of your needs and desires.

Some of the operating systems for plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas include the following:

  • Bi-Fold Track – The Bi-Fold Track operating system hinges up to six plantation shutter panels together via a top track. The top track supports the panels and guides the folding movements of the shutters. This operating system is available with the NewStyleTM shutters, the Heritance® shutters, and the Palm BeachTM shutters.
  • Bypass Track – The Bypass Track operating system works by allowing the shutter panels to slide past each other. The top track allows the shutters to open and close when the panels are moved. This operating system is available with the NewStyleTM shutters, the Heritance® shutters, and the Palm BeachTM shutters.
  • Hinged Panels – The Hinged Panel operating systems consist of panels that are hinged together in the center. The Hinged Panels connect to the windowpane using T-posts for increased design possibilities. This operating system is available with the NewStyleTM shutters, the Heritance® shutters, and the Palm BeachTM shutters.
  • Front Tilt Bar – The Front Tilt Bar operating system uses a centered front tilt bar to move the louvers. This standard operating system allows the louvers to be tightly closed up or down. This operating system is available with the NewStyleTM shutters and the Heritance® shutters.
  • TruViewTM Rear Tilt – The TruView TM Rear Tilt operating system opens and closes the louvers by simply tilting one louver to the desired position. The rest of the louvers will fall into place. This operating system is available with the NewStyleTM shutters, the Heritance® shutters, and the Palm BeachTM shutters.
  • LantanaTM – The Lantana TM operating system is a gear-driven system that uses one-touch control to open and close the louvers. This operating system does not have any tilt bars, creating an unobstructed view. The Lantana TM operating system is available with the Palm Beach TM shutters.
  • PalmettoTM – The Palmetto TM operating system uses a centered front tilt bar to tightly open or close the louvers. This operating system is available with the Palm Beach TM shutters.

In addition to utilizing a variety of operating systems, the Hunter Douglas plantation shutters can also be designed to cover odd shaped windows. Plantation shutters are ideal choices to cover bay windows, corner windows, French doors, arched windows, angled windows, or circle, oval, hexagon, or octagon windows because they can be custom fit to many different shapes, angles or sizes.
