Installation Options for Interior Shutters
Note: Remember to measure and re-measure to verify your numbers before selecting your shutters and the desired mounting procedure.
Shutters may be mounted inside or outside window casings using hanging strips or frames. In some applications it may be more efficient and simpler to mount your shutters to the window moulding using a framed hanging system. These systems allow for greater flexibility for windows with a shallow depth or that may be out of square. It is important that various parts of the window construction (casing, moulding, handles, etc.) allow enough space for louver extension when the shutter is closed and the louvers are fully open.
INSIDE FRAME MOUNT
•Measure the inside width of the window at both points (W/A and W/B), and the height at both points (H/C and H/D).
•Measure the window depth (D/A), the distance from the window casing to the window sash.
•Note: A deduction of 1⁄8" for clearance on inside frame hanging systems is recommended by the manufacturer.
•For hanging systems with hanging strips or mounting directly to window jamb, use the lesser width and height dimension.
OUTSIDE FRAME MOUNT
•Locate area on casing to mount the 1 inch frame.
•Frame width (FW) is determined by measuring outside frame position left to right, including the 1" frame
•Frame height (FH) is determined by measuring outside frame position top to bottom, including the 1" frame footprint.
•To ensure flush mount of frame to window casing, frame position should be consistent on all sides of casing.
