Once used exclusively to protect barns and farmhouses, Board and Batten shutters have become an increasingly popular residential storm shutter option for a more rustic or cottage style appearance. True to the name, Board and Batten shutters are comprised of two elements: Boards and Battens. The Boards (vertical slats) are fit snuggly together and secured by the Battens (horizontal slats). Homeowners can often control the width of boards, determining the visual appearance of the shutter. Exeter offers Hurricane Rated and Non-Rated shutters to accommodate every unique residence and budget.
