What is a shutter stopper? What is it for?

The shutter stop (also called shutter holder) is a useful device for keeping the shutter in the open position. The shutter stop always works in pairs and is fixed to the outside of the facade, on the wall, normally at the lower edge of the doors. Each shutter stop is made of a piece of iron that swings around a pin that can be raised or lowered.

Shutter stops are useful, as the name suggests, to stop the shutter when it is in the open position and prevent it from slamming due to sudden gusts of wind. Among the brands we deal with we mention Tecnometalsystem, a specialized company that offers a large variety of mechanisms for opening the slats for external adjustable blackout shutters.

The history of shutter stops: the Turk and the lady

The spread of the shutter in Europe from the 17th century went through trade with the East and therefore through the Republic of Venice which had contacts with the areas of Arab culture.

Having felt the need to keep the shutters open or closed depending on the atmospheric or meteorological conditions, it was the Venetians who invented the shutter stop in the most classic form of hooks for wooden shutters which is still the most widespread today. We are talking about the one that features human figures.

These figures are of the Turk and the Venetian lady who appear and disappear depending on whether the shutters are kept closed or open and locked.

Today it is interesting to note how other forms of shutter stops subsequently developed that had nothing to do with the "turk"/"lady" combination.
