CLOSED LOUVERED DOORS
Closed Louvered Doors mimic the appearance of open louvers using louvered applied molding.
Operable Louvered Doors
Operable Louvered Doors / Wood Shutters feature adjustable louvers which allow you to regulate air flow (ventilation) and shade sunlight. While they‘re most commonly used as interior shutters for windows, they can be customized to many other applications. Each is built to your exact sizes and crafted to the highest level of quality on specially engineered louver door CNC machinery.
These doors are available in any of our wood species options and in thicknesses of ¾”, 1”, 1 ¼”, 1½”, and 2″.
