SoftClose™ Louvers for NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters



Leading Manufacturer in Window Coverings Introduces Collection of Decorative Side Panels, Drapery, Roller and Roman Shades to Provide a Complete Window Solution


PEARL RIVER, NY (August 4, 2020)—Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of custom window treatments, announced today the launch of the new, patented SoftClose™ Louvers feature for its NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters, the only shutters available with easy to adjust louvers that feature a soft closing mechanism and preset louver positions.


NewStyle Hybrid Shutters blend the beauty of real wood with advanced materials for durability and lasting beauty. A quality product that is built to last, NewStyle Shutters are made from a wood composite material co-extruded with a polypropylene coating. The proprietary NewStyle low-luster finish replicates the warmth and character of a fine wood shutter.


Beautiful and functional, NewStyle Shutters now have the added convenience of SoftClose Louvers. Similar to a feature found in high-end cabinet doors and drawers, the new SoftClose system allows louvers to close gently and automatically after reaching a predetermined angle. This proprietary design eliminates the need for homeowners to sweep their hand up or down the louvers to achieve complete closure, providing ease of use and functionality.


For a uniform look, the new Quick Align™ feature has five preset louver positions that enable consumers to precisely align all their shutters’ louvers from panel to panel. As the louvers are rotated, consumers will feel a very subtle stop at the desired angle, making it easy to position louvers consistently across multiple shutters for a clean, harmonious look at the window.


NewStyle Hybrid Shutters are suitable for windows and doors, and are available in a variety of colors and finishes, and configurations to complement any décor.


For over 100 years, Hunter Douglas has been the industry leader in innovation. We offer the widest array of beautiful, high-performance, custom-made window fashions that are intelligently designed and assembled with relentless attention to quality.
