It's of course very important that you measure precisely the space into which your Fit-Yourself Shutter is going to be secured.
- Our shutters generally have a shutter panel attached (hinged) to a frame.
- The panel consists of louvres which swivel open and closed.
- There are stiles which run vertically on the sides and rails which run horizontally along the top and bottom of the shutter.
- Panels with a height greater than 1800mm will include a divider rail.
- This adds strength to the construction and added support to each shutter panel.
- It also allows you to open the top louvres while keeping the bottom ones closed.
- See the diagram for a clearer understanding of the component parts.
Single Panel Shutter
Two Panel Shutter
Naturally, an inside-mounted shutter sits within your window frame. Many regard it as the sleeker and more modern way to install one's shutters, providing you have sufficient depth. There are three inside-mount frame options possible:
|Minimum Depth Requirements|
If installation occurs in a window opening without a protruding sill, the inside-mounted Z-Frame will extend around 28mm onto the face of the wall - See Illustration 2. However, if the sill is protruding, the base of your shutter frame will end at the top of the sill - See Illustration 1.
The decorative trim face of the Z-Frame will cover most of the apparent inconsistencies or any light gaps created due to the window frame not being precisely 'square' and will hide deviations of up to 5mm on either side of the frame
First, please refer to the Minimum Depth Requirements chart. gruntPlease note that special attention should be given to window openings which have:
- Sloping window sills
- Window cranks
- Security devices
- Removeable screens
Any one of these may obstruct the shutter frame. When measuring for our Inside Mount Shutters ensure you have the proper clearance depth shown above, based on your measurement to the front of the nearest obstruction. If you have any queries, please contact us.
You'll need to measure the width of each window opening in three places: the top, middle and bottom, as shown in Illustrations A and B.
- Take the smallest of the three measurements and write it down on a piece of paper.
- This width size is the size you will need to order, without making any deductions to it.
- Our factory will make a minor deduction to each accurate size you give us to allow for easy installation.
Measure each window's height in three places: across the top, middle and bottom, as shown in Illustrations A and B. Then, take the smallest measurement and use this as the size you place on your order to us. Our factory will make a minor deduction to this height measurement to allow for easy installation of you new shutter.
Our factory will make any necessary adjustments needed to enable easy self-fitting of your blind. Do not make any adjustments to your measurements. Just send us the precise dimensions you measured carefully.
If your shutter height is greater than 1800mm it will automatically include a centred divider rail.
Our Fit-Yourself Shutters are very easy to install but it's essential that the measurement of the window space into which they need to fit, to be very precise. You MUST use a steel measuring tape and measure each and every window, regardless of whether or not they appear identical. In most cases, they won't be.
Our Outside Mounted Fit-Yourself shutter will come to you without and deductions to the sizes you specified on your order to us. When ordering your Outside Mounted shutter, ensure that you specify the 'finished sizes', including the frame.
When determining the finished width of your Fit-Yourself Shutter, make sure you measure the OUTSIDE edge of the architrave ( as shown in the diagram above).
When measuring a window with no sill, please ensure that you measure the edge of the architrave using a steel measure. Measure from the top of the sill to the very top edge of the architrave ( as shown in the diagram above).
