Open Your View with Rear Mount Tilt Rod Shutters In Austin! On the back of each louver is the rear mount tilt rod which is a thin metal strip that allows you to control the motion of your plantation shutters. Using a tilt rod is an easy and practical way to get the feel of a hidden tilt rod in Austin without the price of an internally mounted gear mechanism. Hardly seen from the front, the rear-mount tilt bar lets you be in charge of the view. You only need to move one louver to the desired position, and all the other louvers move in unison. With the tilt rod installed on the back of the louvers, your plantation shutters give your room a contemporary atmosphere. And, just like with a front mount tilt bar, cleaning and maintaining your shutters is simple when the tilt rod is in the back.Our favorite feature of a rear-mount tilt rod is how it highlights your shutters’ design. Without a visible tilt rod, your windows look clean and contemporary. We offer the tilt bar in the back because we enjoy the clean look it adds to plantation shutters in Austin. Our installation professionals custom build plantation shutters with rear-mount tilt rods in Austin to complement your windows and style perfectly.
