Open Your View with Rear Mount Tilt Rod Shutters In Chicago! The rear-mount tilt rod is a thin metal strip on the back of the louver set that gives you control over the tilting movements of your plantation shutters. It’s an easy and pragmatic way to get the look of a hidden tilt rod in Chicago without the expense of an internally enclosed gear mechanism. Barely noticeable from the front, the rear-mount tilt bar gives you control of your view. You only need to tilt one louver to the desired angle, and the other louvers move in unison. With the tilt rod mounted on the back of the louvers, your plantation shutters offer your room a trendy look. And, just like with a front mount tilt bar, maintaining and cleaning your shutters is a piece of cake when there isn’t a tilt rod in front.Our favorite feature of a rear-mount tilt rod is that it accentuates the design of your shutters. Your shutters look more clean and modern without a visible tilt rod. We offer a rear-mount tilt rod because we love the streamlined look it gives plantation shutters in Chicago. Our installation experts custom craft plantation shutters with rear-mount tilt rods in Chicago to fit your home and style perfectly.
