Whole house fan shutter

Does anyone know of a whole house fan shutter that extends below the finished ceiling? Our existing shutter needs to be replaced but due to framing above the ceiling, the usual shutter that is flush to the ceiling and opens upward won't work because of interference with the framing.

Post a picture of this framing.
That would look like poop if it was not flush with the ceiling.

The framing is actually the ceiling joists. It's a 1 1/2 story house with 18" clearance to the ridge beam so raising the fan with framing in the attic isn't an option. The existing shutter hangs down 3" and we're just used to it.
