Dividing Centre Rails seperate the shutter into two portions, and allows you to operate the top and the bottom of the shutter independently. 

This is ideal for rooms that may require more privacy, such as bathrooms, or windows that face the front of the house.  Allowing you to close off the lower section, and open the upper section, to let light in and to maintain your view.

Shutters have a dividing rail as an option on all shutters with a drop less than 1800mm. If your drop is 1800mm or over, a dividing rail is necessasary to give the shutter strength. 

Dividing rails are ideal for hiding the horizontal mullion (frame) on your window, giving a neater look to your window. 

When ordering your shutter with a dividing rail, you have 2 options:

Central Position - The central position places the divider rail, at approximately the mid point of the shutter.  This can vary slightly depending on the drop of the shutter and how many slats are used to achieve this. 

Customised Position - You can select the height you want the divider rail to be at.  This is important if you want to have the divider rail covering the horizontal mullion on your window frame.  Make sure to measure from the bottom or the architrave or recess (depending on your mount type) to the centre point of the mullion.  Please note that the divider rail height you supply may have a slight variation, to allow for the amount of louvres used to make up the drop.
