SPLIT TILT Louvre rotations are split into multiple rotations, or tilts, to provide better closure, privacy and light control. Panels over 1000mm in height will be manufactured with a split tilt by default, or you can specify your preferred split tilt location. It is important to note that rotations greater than 1000mm high on a single rotation WILL NOT have maximum closure and have more light seepage. This is particularly prevalent with polymer shutters and a normal feature, so it is highly recommended to utilise split tilts. • 50/50 - a split halfway • 50/50 CAM - split halfway above the divider rail • 50/50 CBM - split halfway below the divider rail • Custom splits - measure from bottom of window to required location STILES The vertical strips either side of a shutter panel can be square, astragal or rebate to control light gaps where panels meet.
