The structural upper and lower parts of a shutter panel. They range in height from 2" to 4-1/2" based on panel height and louver size. Our rails come 4-1/2” x ¾” 4.5RP or 5-1/2” x ¾” 5.5RP, primed.

A great feature of the divider rail is when you want to close the lower louvers for privacy and open the louvers above the divider rail for light and ventilation control. Our divider rails are available in 3” x ¾”, 3MDRP or 4” x ¾”, 4MDRP, primed.
The louvers rotate on a pin in a bushing and are connected to a tilt rod that coordinates the louver rotation for control of light, privacy and ventilation. Our louvers are 3-1/2” x 7/16” L3P and 4-1/2” x 7/26” L4P, primed
Controls rotation of louvers in a coordinated manner for control of light, privacy and ventilation. Our tilt rod is mounted on the rear (hidden) of the louver’s edge on the hinge side, RCR-3L and RCR-4L.

I LOVE Custom Shutters Guru. Errol is the best in the business. I highly recommend his services. Errol went above and beyond to help me with my order. He is very responsive and knows everything about shutters. Even when I had one too many questions he was responsive and helpful. My order shipped within a week and the product I received is in perfect condition. I was able to replace my broken louvers today and thanks to Errol my house looks like a home again! I cannot say THANK YOU enough - I am sure my neighbors want to thank you too because my shutters were looking a bit crazy with the missing louvers. THANK YOU again for everything!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Errol and his company. Errol has exceptional customer service skills, competitive pricing, and provided very timely delivery. The shutters look and function wonderfully. I would highly recommend working with Errol for your custom shutter order.
Reasonable, quick turnaround and nice finished product!! Errol, the owner, is such a lovely guy to work with and so responsive. I was very very happy and will definitely continue to recommend them to my clients! Nice work Errol! Thank you!

Shutter louver jig. Ordered on line, I was notified and kept informed of each step in the process all the way to delivery. Delivered quickly and in good shape. I am building my own plantation shutters and was searching for a jig for drilling the louvers.
CustomShutters.guru's 3 1/2" jig is excellent! This jig greatly reduces the time and improves the accuracy for drilling each louver for the pins. Plus it includes the hole and bit to drill the holes to attach the hidden control arm to each louver. Perfect for my project! Another great feature is it gives you the ability to make fine adjustments so it can be dialed in to drill your louvers perfectly.
Great product and a great company to work with.

Shutter parts and components much less expensive than through a woodworking store like Rockler. They also have fantastic customer service. I had some damaged parts in my order and they replaced them without question. Five stars, I'll be ordering the rest of my project parts from them.

If you are interested in a DIY plantation shutter project and you're unsure of the design, materials and techniques required, try this company. I have received and built three shutters systems. Each time I have been very pleased with the materials, guidance and customer service. Their sales rep., Errol, is always available, quick to respond and great at explaining the basics and details. I plan to build more shutters and my choice will be CustomShuttersGuru,
