Louvre Shutters - Popular For Its Durability And Stability

 By: JOSEPH ZAMMIT
Nothing compares to the Louvre Shutter when it comes to popular shutter styles. Look at just any home and the numbers with the Louvre shutters are going to exceed those that are without one. There are many shutter styles to choose from and it is not uncommon to find shutters that have been custom built to incorporate designs from other styles of shutter, for instance a combination of louvre and flat panel. So, what is it that makes them such a widespread choice?

Apart from the durability and stability the traditional Louvre shutters bring, it is also the flexibility of custom design and zero maintenance (the occasional dusting doesn’t count) that makes them a hot choice among people. Surprisingly, the customisation does not alter the prices, which is also a big advantage. After all, there are not too many things in this world that offers you the chance to opt for a variety of designs that are not restricted by cost.

With the traditional Louvre shutters, the size options you get span over widths between 7 inches and 18 inches (at quarter inch increments) while the option for colours are virtually endless. For taller shutters, it’s the centre mid-rails that make them durable while offset rails add stability to shutters for windows of particular designs and/or architecture. Additionally, use of offset bars creates truly custom built appearances.

But you must also keep in mind that Louvre shutters are decorative or ornamental by nature; if you are looking forward to use them as free-standing doors, then these won’t be the right choice.

The durability and stability of Louvre shutters, the centre mid-rails aside, can further be enhanced using Mortise & Tenon joints - which are superior to the dowel joints - and stay unaffected even if the timber expands or contracts. The Mortise-Tenon joints make it possible to create 2-Way closures that are easier to clean and close in either direction. This is a big plus if a greater light or heat deflection is what you are looking for. Add rebated stiles instead if you do not want the tilt rods to become visible from inside and don’t notch them into the blades if you want a neater finish.

The stability and durability of Louvre Shutters Ringwood are also subjected to the choice of frames, of which, the L frames suit all kinds of blade options. If you want things to be decorative instead but without compromising on the durability part, the Bullnose standard and the decorative Z frames give you that!

But both durability and stability depend on your choice of certified timber and special shaped panels made from durable materials, of which, Aluminium rules the roost! Or, you may opt for Louvre Shutters Dandenong; the hardwood comes from the Linden family of trees and its medium density, while being extremely durable is neither too heavy nor too light and offers a good resistance against knocks and bumps. If you are living in humid areas, these two varieties are going to be most suitable for both external and internal use.
