Solid swell shutters are made from glued up 1-1/2" x 1-3/4" basswood stock. Frame is 1-1/2" thick basswood, 6" wide. Vertical and horizontal shutters are mounted on ball bearings, double felted for quiet operation and easy removal. Shutter blades over 8' long require center support. Shade dogs attach to 7/8" x 2" hardwood trace rod with screws. Flat black is standard finish. Special finishes are available.

Custom-built swell shutters of thicker material, with hardwood veneer, special edge design or special shade dogs to keep trace within shade arc are constructed to specifications and drawings.
