At Sashes and Shutters, we manufacture a comprehensive range of Steel and Brass Shutter Bars

Brass Bars
Brass Shutter Bars with Pendant Latch

Shutter bars - otherwise known as shutter stays, shutter latches shutter locks, shutter catches - are notoriously difficult to find, and often prohibitively expensive.  We now offer an extensive range of shutter bars to suit different tastes and budgets.  Because we manufacture our own bars, we can tailor our product to your needs, meaning that you can choose between:

  • Steel or Brass
  • Thickness of the steel
  • Type of latch: Pendant or Push
  • Design of bar: Decorative or Straight
  • Hanging of bar: Left, Right or Centre

and decide upon the overall length of your bar.  If you already have some original bars in your property, feel free to contact us to see if we can match them.  Have a look at the Shutter Bar Gallery page to see a few examples of bars we have been commissioned to replicate.

 In our standard range, our most popular bar is the light gauge, 3mm steel bar with traditional pendant latch, available in white or grey primer for over-painting to match your shutters, or powder coated for a durable finish.  The same style is also available in 3mm solid polished brass.  
Heavier bars are available in 6mm steel, primed and with pendant latch.  Alternatively, there is the 6mm polished brass bar with pendant latch, which combines strength and elegance.

In both the 3mm and 6mm steel, this style can be manufactured in various configurations to suit the layout of your shutters. You can choose whether your bars hang on the left or right when in the open position, or have them centre hinged, which is often a neat solution for longer bars to avoid them hanging below the shutters when open.
