How to Fit

We strongly recommend that you use our in house team of experts to fit your shutters due to the fact that shutters will not work properly if installed incorrectly.

Tools Required

These are some of the tools we use ourselves on a daily basis and we would recommend you to have them in hand as well. Don't forget a sharp pencil!

Hardware Required

Shutter panels will be pre-hinged, and magnets are supplied if necessary.

Frames

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

How to Hinge and Install

Inside Recess

Shutters can be installed on the inside of the recess opening as shown in Diagrams A, B, C, D, E.1 and E.2. Frames are placed next to the window frame and screwed into the recess. For Mounting Option B, shutters will fold back against the inside of the recess (although they may still protrude further than the recess, depending on recess depth and size of panels).

A) Deep Plain L Frame

B) Vintage L Frame

C) Deep Bullnose Z Frame

D) Beaded Z Frame

E.1) Double Insert L Frame

E.2) Double Insert L Frame

Instructions for inside recess:

This requires sufficient depth for slat clearance (the bigger the slat, the bigger the depth required) and clearance for handles must also be taken into account.

If mounted as per diagrams A, C, D, E.1 and E.2 shutters will fold back against the walls on either side of the window.

Check the straightness of recess wall (frames may require shaving to ensure straight hanging), and that there is enough space surrounding the recess for the shutters to open flat against the wall.

Outside Recess

Shutters are fitted onto the wall outside the recess opening as shown in diagrams F and G.

F) Camber Deco Frame

G) Vintage L Frame

Instructions for outside recess:

Double check measurements of shutters.

Lay out shutters on the floor in format that will be attached to window.

Chop down the side frames until they are the correct height (please note frames normally arrive 2mm longer to lift shutters off the window sill).

Hinge the side frame to the shutter panels making the top of the frame flush with the top of the panel.

Offer assembled shutters and frames to face of recess and mark position of frames.

Detach shutters from frames and face-fix frames accordingly using raw plugs if necessary.

Re-attach shutters.

Sash Window

Shutters are fitted between the architrave and the staff bead as shown in diagram H.

H) Vintage L Frame

Instructions for sash windows:

Double check measurements of shutters.

Lay out shutters on the floor in format that will be attached to window.

Chop down the side frames until they are the correct height (please note frames normally arrive 2mm longer to lift shutters off the window sill).

Hinge the side frame to the shutter panels making the top of the frame flush with the top of the panel.

Offer assembled shutters and frames to flat section inside architrave and mark position of frames.

Detach shutters from frames and face-fix frames accordingly using raw plugs if necessary.

Re-attach shutters.
