Melton Classics’ Bahama Shutters offer high style with a crisp design and unique utility. Based on a traditional shutter design found in the Caribbean, these shutters provide a beautiful display of color and fun design, while delivering shade, privacy and air circulation.
Attached via a hinge near the top edge of windows, Bahama Shutters extend outward from the wall at the window’s bottom edge when in the open position. When they are closed, these shutters completely cover the window with their one-piece design. Keeping out damaging, hot UV sunlight louvers allow ambient light to enter the home. At the same time, Bahama shutters allow refreshing breezes to pass through for natural cooling and comfort.
While Bahama shutters have long been favored in coastal/tropical areas and desert communities, their versatile aesthetics can be an original touch to homes in any region. Their elegant appeal can be paired with Raised Panel or any shutter styles to deliver a dramatic flair to exteriors. Bahama Shutters are built without unsightly mechanical fasteners which results in clean and rhythmic lines. They’re completely crafted from thermally-stable, pultruded fiberglass. Aluminum hardware stands up to unforgiving coastal environments as well as sea-spray.
