Practically speaking, the rake shutter is handled much the way an arched top shutter is measured, manufactured and installed. The primary difference is that the rake shutter has a straight angled side, while the arched shutter has a curved side.
Generally speaking, these windows tend to be architectural features that are high above the floor and are often left uncovered as a source of beauty and light. However, we do see instances where the rake shaped window faces east, south or west, such that the light and heat from the window causes functional living issues. If this is the case in your house, then you should consider a rake shutter to compliment the same standard shutters in the same space. We do not think you will be disappointed with the look or functionality they bring to your space.
