Mounting Options

There are a variety of mounting options and framing styles available for our shutters - which one to use will depend entirely on the type of windows you have in your home. Explore our most popular framing styles.

Our measurers will advise on the appropriate choice when they come to do a site visit or for supply only orders, our sales team can guide you towards the best option to use.


Shutters are installed on the inside of the recess opening as shown in diagrams A, B, C, D, E.1 and E.2. 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.

Shutters will fold back against the inside of the recess if mounted as per B and E.2 (although they may still protrude further than the recess, depending on recess depth and size of panels). If mounted on the front edge of the recess as per options A, C, D and E.1 shutters will fold back against the walls on either side of the window.

A) Deep Plain L Frame 60mm

B) Vintage L Frame 46mm

C) Deep Bullnose Z Frame 60mm

D) Beaded Z Frame 46mm

E.1) Double Insert L Frame 50mm

E.2) Double Insert L Frame 60mm


Shutters are fixed onto the wall outside of the recess opening as shown in diagrams F & G.

I highly recommend Plantation Shutters. They have supplied and fitted shutters on several projects for my building company including most recently my own house in Epsom.
