Shutter Blinds

Shutter blinds from Atlanta Discount Blinds

window shutter is a solid and stable window covering usually consisting of a frame of vertical stiles and horizontal rails (top, centre and bottom). Set within this frame can be louvers (both operable or fixed, horizontal or vertical), solid panels, fabric, glass and almost any other item that can be mounted within a frame. Shutters may be employed for a variety of reasons, including controlling the amount of sunlight that enters a room, to provide privacy, security, to protect against weather or unwanted intrusion or damage and to enhance the aesthetics of a building.

Depending on the application, and the construction of the window frame, shutters can be mounted to fit within the opening or to overlap the opening. The term window shutter includes both interior shutters, used on the inside of a house or building, and exterior shutters, used on the outside of a structure. On some styles of buildings it is common to have shutters to cover the doors as well as the windows.[1]

Interior shutters[edit]

Modern interior wooden window shutters

Interior shutters are typically divided into narrow units hinged accordion-style so that two or more units cover each side of a window opening when closed. Operable louvered shutters have louvers (or louvres in British usage), or slats, controlled by a tilt bar or rod to adjust the louver position and keep them in a uniform position, to control light, visibility and airflow. Shutters with operable louvers are described variously as traditional shutters, California shutters, or plantation shutters. Plantation shutters, typical of warmer climates like Florida, South Africa, the Mediterranean or Australia, typically have only two shutters per window and wide louver blades.

Other interior shutters use stationary louvers that do not rotate (fixed louvers); solid raised or flat panels; fabric inserts; or tinted glass. Shutters can be configured in a single tier unit that has one shutter top to bottom of a window opening as well as multiple tiers. Multiple tier units feature separate shutters on each tier which allows the top shutters to be opened independently from the bottom shutters. Café-type shutters refer to shutters that only cover the lower portion of a window.

Full height shutters can be made with a horizontal divider rail which separates the upper and lower portions of the shutter. With operable louvered shutters this gives greater control as the louvers above the divider rail can be operated independently from the louvers below the divider rail. Interior shutters can be constructed from numerous woods, which can be painted or stained, and a variety of synthetic materials. Interior shutters that are made to close tolerances are preferable for the best possible fit. When louvers or tilt bar (rod) become damaged, replacement kits for these damaged parts may be ordered online and are easy to install.

In the UK, most interior shutters historically were paneled.

We looked at five blind companies in the metro area. These were the best price and the service was outstanding

Great experience with this company. The wait time was a bit longer than expected for the install, but the blinds look great. I had another company come out and give us a quote for the same exact blinds, but they were $600 more than Dave’s quote. Great quality and a great price. Thanks!

I had a great experience with Atlanta Discount Blinds. Dave, the owner, was professional and provided great customer service. He provided me with a free estimate as well as temporary blinds while I waited for my order. My blinds were installed in the estimated time frame given by Dave. Dean was the installer and he did an awesome job.The blinds look great! Dean also installed the blinds in the time frame that he provided for the day of install. I would recommend Atlanta Discount Blinds. They are affordable, honest, and professional. I love my new blinds!

I do architecture and construction management for a living. Dave and his team at Atlanta Discount Blinds are unbeatable!!! The price of their blinds, speed of delivery, absolute great customer service, and impeccable install is number one in the industry. Dave and his team came in and knocked it out of the park! I’d recommend these guys to anybody, so if you’re in the market for window coverings; the first person you should contact is Dave Ross.

We have had a number of Roman and roller shades installed and have been pleased. The whole process was easy with Dave coming out here and Mark installing. Pricing seems to be good as well for the items that we got. I would use them again if I needed more window treatments.

I had a wonderful experience with Atlanta Discount Blinds. Dave was so easy to work with. He came out once to measure (some companies have to come out twice and I didn’t want to deal with that) and everything was perfect. The installation WAS SO FAST!!!! Seriously!!! 35 blinds installed perfectly in 2 hours. I am so happy and highly recommend!!!

Good value for money, friendly and professional engagement overall…
After researching the market space we have had a number of companies provide quotes to our need. We selected Atlanta Discount Blinds because the engagement was pleasant, professional and the quality of materials is good value for money.
The installation work was quick and well done, although lacked some attention to detail. After sales service for replacements and/or exchanges is seamless and friendly. I recommend this company for your next blinds project.
