Basswood Shutter Features
A tension adjustment screw in every shutter panel ensures that, whether the shutter is brand new or decades old, it will never become too tight or too loose to operate properly. By the slight turn of a screw inside the stile, the louver tension is either increased and decreased
Stainless steel staples are resistant to both corrosion and temperature changes. One of the most tiresome experiences of a shutter owner is staple failure. We use extra-long stainless steel staples in the louvers and tilt-rod to ensure that they do not pull out.
Hidden, recessed magnets allow our shutter panels to close tightly while also providing a clean and streamlined appearance.
Mortise and tenon joints are designed for maximum strength, to withstand shear and racking stress and to ensure safety and reliability. Typical shutters, like those sold at big-box home improvement retailers, are joined together by glued dowels or screw joints which eventually work themselves loose and/or fall apart. Our shutters are built differently, using special joinery for superior strength and simplicity.
Mortised hinges are important to achieve a tight fit within your window opening. Without a mortised panel, a gap appears on the hanging side that allows light to break between the panel and selected frame. Our hinges have at least 5 knuckle joints for better load distribution and smoother, quieter action. Pivot hinges have firmly riveted joint pins. We select materials that are sufficiently heavy to prevent sagging and are resistant to moisture.
Multi-layer, hand-sanded polyurethane finish with high-quality stain or paint provides hardness, strength, UV-resistance, water-resistance and color retention.
