Kirtz is always doing something customized for our plantation shutters, from the finishes applied to the specs, we are very flexible about doing what it takes to meet our customers needs.
Recently 2 pair of custom doors moved through our production line with some very unusual specifications. They were to be used as sliding pocket doors in a dining room.
The unique specs on these custom shutter doors were as follows (see photos below):
- One stile was 5″ wide, the other 4″ wide, so that when taking into consideration the overlap inside the pocket, when they were pulled shut the doors would look symmetrical.
- Each door was composed of an inner and outer stile. The outside stile was 2 1/4″ thick, and the inner, drop down stile was 2″ thick with 1 3/4″ face.
- All joints were mitered, instead of our standard butt joint.
- Customers own, custom blended custom latex enamel was used, instead of our oil based lacquer finish.
- Panels were 112″ high
These doors were quite different than anything else that has been through our factory before, but we were happy to contribute to this project.
