The characteristics of the 4 types of plantation shutter tilt rods
* centre tilt rod-
A classic style, a rod made from the same chosen material as shutters and a critical component of shutter panel. It is attached onto the front of blades to manoeuvre them to varying angles as required, the versatility that changes of blade angles give to the shutters are one of the appealing features.
* offset tilt rod-
As the centre tilt rod, just having the tilt rod offset to one side, if the panel is hinged on the left side then it is normal for the offset tilt rod to also be placed on the left side. The offset tilt rod 25.4mm from blades.
* Clearview tilt rod-
A design feature that can commonly be confused for without a tilt rod. As the name suggests, the tilt rod is still present but is smaller and at the back of blades rather than the front.
* Concealed tilt rod-or hidden tilt rod
A newer and more contemporary option for blade tilt operation is to opt for a “without a tilt rod” choice that it is a relatively a new design option for shutters. And you can’t see the tilt rod in front of the blades or behind the blades.
