It’s Waaay Over Your Head – Pull-Down Closet Rod

“Stretch, stretch. Arms waaay over your head.” We used to hear that in gym class. We shouldn’t have to perform sixth-grade physical fitness drills just to get our clothes out of the closet. Our Pull-Down Closet Rod allows even the most petite among us to reach clothing on higher clothing rods.  This Pull-Down Closet Rod also works well for those with disabilities.

Mounting clothing rods in upper and lower tiers allows for maximum space efficiency. Closets with 10 feet of height or more can use the Pull-Down Closet Rod to add a third row of hanging rods in the closet.

The hinged mount allows for the rod to be pulled down to a comfortable height, and easily pushed back into place. The handle (or push rod) swings back against the wall when not in use, so it will never get lost. It also has an adjustable length to adapt to many height requirements.

The Pull-Down Closet Rod is also suitable for walk-in closets. It’s available in three adjustable sizes: 18-24 in. wide; 24-39 in. wide; 30-47 in. wide. Each rod has a 25 lb. load capacity.


This closet accessory is just one way that Marco Closets helps you make sense of your space. We offer many other options, too. Our Pull-Out Valet Rod, Tie Butler, Belt Rack and Pull-Out Hampers can also add organization and easy storage to your closet. Why not call us at 402.778.5777 today?

The Story Behind the Shutters

If you think of Mint Juleps and Southern drawls when you hear the word “plantation”, you’re not wrong. Its Southern living we have to thank for Plantation Shutters. The subtropical climate of the southern United States with its heat and humidity created the need for window coverings that would allow for light filtration and air flow.

Despite the fact that Scarlett O’Hara had a dress made from drapes in Gone With The Wind, those heavy fabric window coverings fell out of favor. Thus, shutters became the method used to control light and ventilation. They were painted white to reflect the sun’s rays. Today, they can be found in nearly any color or stained in many species of wood.

Some shutters lore says that shutters were created in Ancient Greece and were originally made of marble, making shutters a sign of wealth or royalty. Other stories say that the Spaniards introduced shutters to the American South. However they came to be, we think they were an inspired idea.

What makes a shutter a Plantation Shutter? The wide slats are their hallmark. Traditional Shutters, predominantly used in the Eastern United States during Colonial times, have narrow slats. Most modern manufacturers make louvers in many widths. Marco Shutters offers louvers in widths of 2.5”, 3.5” and 4.5”.

Today, an idea that originated hundreds or perhaps thousands of years ago is still one of your best choices for energy savings and light control. It’s clear that the efficiency of shutters has stood the test of time. Why not apply this ancient wisdom in your home?

We make our shutters in our own factory, not in the South, but in Papillion, Nebraska. Find a piece of American history and energy efficiency with our Custom Wood Plantation Shutters.
