Plantation shutters are becoming an effective and popular way to add a new style to your home. Both are functional and attractive.
Parts of the plantation component.
Traditional plantation shutters have a fairly simple design. The sowing ribs generally consist of a set of vertical panels along the entire length and can be divided into four main parts:
The horizontal rails at the top and bottom of the shutter are called “rails”. Some sections of the plantation may also contain one or more horizontal rails in the center of the panel, dividing the plantation panel into several levels.
Located on the sides of the spinal cord, they are vertical “pillars”.
The blinds are parallel slats between the poles that can be tilted and adjusted to provide more or less light. The blinds can be of different sizes and shapes.
The “tilt bar” is the mechanism that controls the movement of the blinds. They also come in different styles.
Simple slashes are a continuous vertical bar that simultaneously connects and controls all the blinds.
This is exactly what is called a slanted division bar: a slash divided into separate parts. This allows you to separately control several levels in a blank panel, for example, by adjusting the upper level to give more light, keeping the lower level grilles closed, for greater privacy.
Hidden slanted bars imperceptibly hide the device behind the shutter panel.
Where do the plantation plantations come from?
Blinds have been used for centuries. Some experts claim that they were already used in ancient Greece with marble slats. They were used before the glass was available to provide protection against elements such as rain, wind and direct sunlight. They also effectively protected insects and small animals that entered the building. The actual function of the blinds was evaluated when these elements and the pests had passed, and the blinds could be opened, allowing sunlight and fresh wind to ventilate the installation.
Plantation shutters are currently available in a wide range of sizes, styles and materials. They can be found all over the world, in all styles of home. Most of them are made of hardwood, such as poplar or low tree, and may have several options of ornaments to give an architectural aspect to residential and commercial properties. Plantation blinds made of rich wood, such as cherry, oak, mahogany or walnut, are exceptionally attractive.
The shutters of the current plantation still offer many practical possibilities that previous generations have found so useful. The plantation blinds are fully regulated to provide more or less light, to ensure privacy and may even have the benefits of isolation.
