So you’ve measured and ordered your shutters, now it’s time to fit them. I may sound redundant here but my advice is to get a professional to install them for you! Over the years I’ve come across many clients that regret not to have invited a field expert over but as I mentioned on my previous post, it is possible to be done on your own.
Usually, shutter panels come already pre-hinged so here’s a list of tools you will need:
It may vary from company to company but normally screws are not provided, so here’s a list of what you need:
- Length up to 1100mm – 2 large screws per frame needed
- Length up to 1500mm – 3 large screws per frame needed
- Length from 1500mm to 2000mm – 4 large screws per frame needed
- Length over 2000mm – 5 large screws per frame needed
Inside of Recess
For examples A, C, D and E, frames should be placed on the inside of the recess wall and screws fixed into the recess wall. Shutters will fold against the wall on either side of the window.
