Hidden Tilt ~ The Best Way to Maximize Your View

Hidden tilt, one of the newer custom options available with Kirtz Shutters, has become increasing popular since its introduction.

How it works

On a traditional plantation shutter louvers are fastened to the tilt rod with staples and you use the tilt rod to contol the position of the louvers.   With a hidden tilt rod, a narrow metal rod is attached to the backside of the panel at the end of the louver on the hinge side.   We then finish the hidden rod a similar color to the panels.
