Exterior Bermuda shutters are prominent in tropical areas and along the Southern coast of the United States. The style promotes ventilation with outside air, while simultaneously shading windows from direct sunlight. Multi-functional Bermuda shutters hinge from the top of a window and lifts from the bottom. Tilt arms at the base of the opening brace the outside shutter away from the house. Fixed louvers allow for only minimally impeded sight lines. Outdoor wood Bahama shutters can close to assist tropical storm protection.

Bahama Shutter Hardware


Construction of Bahama Shutters

Bahama shutters can be manufactured from any of our premium wood options: Red Grandis, Cedar or Mahogany. We start with high quality kiln-dried lumber to fabricate solid 1 ¾” thick exterior shutters that can weather harsh outdoor environments. After components are cut to size, stiles and rails are joined with 2 ½” wood dowels, exterior glue and a threaded screw for longevity. Louvers are inserted by hand into machine-drilled slots in the side stiles at precise intervals. The louvers are in fixed position with space between louvers to promote ventilation.

ShutterLand exterior shutters are manufactured in the United States to your specifications in around 4-6 weeks. After completion, the window shutters are shipped directly to your home, ready to install.

Bermuda Wood Shutter Colors

ShutterLand offers exterior Bahama shutters in a variety of finishes – unfinished, primed or factory painted. Unfinished shutters are raw wood require sanding, priming and two coats of exterior-grade paint to complete. Shutters that have been primed in the factory just need to be sanded and wiped clean before accepting paint. Shutters finished in the factory receive two coats of premium quality exterior paint then are shipped ready to install.

The factory paint color options are almost limitless. Nine standard paint colors that are similar to some of Benjamin Moore’s most popular colors are available in stock. If you prefer a color that is not standard, provide any paint manufacturer name, color name and color code. We will mix the custom color for a one-time fee of $120 per order.

Options for Bermuda Shutters

All Bahama shutters are made with sections of louvers divided by one or more vertical sub-stiles, depending on the width of the shutter (see chart above). There are also options for a horizontal division point. Many Bermuda shutters do not have a horizontal divider rail, but for exceptionally tall Bahama shutters above 70”, it is required for structural stability. ShutterLand can manufacture Bermuda shutters with a centered divider rail or custom locate one or two horizontal divider rails to specification.

The stile size will increase incrementally up to 4” when the configuration selected and shutter width meet these thresholds. Larger stile sizes can be avoided with the input of an additional sub-stile.

“No Sub-Stile” and shutter width 23” – 27”
“One Sub-Stile” and shutter width 44” – 50”
“Two Sub-Stiles” and shutter width 65” – 73”

Bermuda shutters do require specific installation hardware to ensure functionality. The tilt arms (also called stay bars) that hold shutters in the open position can be almost invisible or can be a decorative element of their own. Some are elaborate iron scrollwork, while others can be more whimsical wooden cutouts like fish or sailboats. ShutterLand focuses on the production of shutters and does not supply hardware. Proceed to the hardware page for sourcing information.

ShutterLand is the ultimate resource for exceptional exterior shutters, and we have compiled detailed instructions for measuring, ordering and installing Bermuda exterior shutters. If you have any remaining questions, the experienced staff at ShutterLand will be happy to help!

Adam D.

This was my first time using Shutterland. The company was always professional to deal with and kept me informed of the production timeline throughout the process. The shutters were extremely well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. I ordered multiple raised panel shutters in redwood wood species. The shutter quality was excellent and I would not hesitate to use them again. Shutterland has been a great company to do business with.

Bruce G.

I was amazed at the quality of your window shutters. It was far superior to any other house shutter material I have purchased. Excellent quality material and a smooth finished exterior product.
