The Invisible Support Option: Hidden Tilt Rods

White Painted Shutters With Center RodThe louvers do all the work on custom indoor shutters:  They move up and down to filter light, and must stay in place once adjusted.  A tilt rod is  the controller, moving the louvers to the desired position and keeping them there.

Many times, the tilt rod is in the center of the shutter panel. Easy to use, it’s also visible. It’s a classic look that is both functional and beautiful.

However, if your window has a wide sweeping view, you may wish the tilt rods were invisible. Marco Shutters has granted your wish with its invisible support option that uses a hidden tilt rod.

Invisible Support for Custom Indoor ShuttersWith this invisible support system, the hidden tilt rod has been moved from the front and center to the back and sides of each shutter panel, allowing the tilt bar stay out of sight. Marco’s superior construction includes special features that increase joint strength. They ensure that louvers stay at whatever tilt angle is set. Our shutters are built with our unique louver pins that eliminate tensioning.

Another advantage of hidden tilt rods is that it’s much easier to clean the louvers, since there’s no center rod to hinder dusting the shutter panel.

The hidden tilt rod is available on all styles of our custom indoor shutters – painted plantation shutters and stained plantation shutters. We offer louver in 2 1/2”, 3 1/2”, and 4 1/2” widths. We have a custom matching service for painted shutters. And, if stained shutters are your style, we can match wood species and stain to your specifications.

Get Cozy With Stained Wood Plantation Shutters

Our recent 50-degree temperature drop from the high 90s has reminded us that autumn is coming soon. Suddenly, being cozy is important again. The warmth of wood from these stained wood plantation shutters is just the thing to create a comfortable atmosphere. Log Cabin Room With Cozy Shutters from Marco ShuttersClosed, they shut out the storm. Open, they filter the sunlight that will be coming back when this weather pattern lifts.

Our beautiful stained plantation shutters, made from real wood, are one of our finest products. They’re hand-crafted from Basswood, grown and processed in the Northwest United States. We primarily use Basswood for our shutters because it’s sturdy, but without great weight. This allows us to build custom shutter panels as wide as 36’’ with a minimal risk of warping.

Because plantation shutters fit close to the window frame, they’re also effective insulators against cold drafts and summer heat. Best of all, Marco Shutters require virtually no maintenance and have a 20-year guarantee.

If your decor calls for a different variety of wood, we have many options. American-grown cherry, walnut, maple, mahogany or oak are available for your custom shutters. Our indoor shutters can also be custom stained to match the wood in the room.
