Specifications

 
  • Inside Mount Z-Frame: Z-Frames styles are mounted to the edges of the window opening providing the look of a trim-cased window frame. Z-Frames can be installed in windows with up to a 1/2" variance between your 3 width and 3 height measurements (see measuring instructions). Windows with a protruding sill will have a flat bottom frame that rests on top of the sill. The minimum depth required for a Z-Frame shutter with 2 1/2" louvers is 1 1/4" with a front tilt bar & 1 3/4" with a hidden tilt bar. For 3 1/2" louvers the minimum depth is 1 3/4" with a front tilt bar & 2 1/4" with a hidden tilt bar.
  • Inside Mount L-Frame: Inside mount L-Frame installations in window openings with variances between your 3 width and 3 height measurements (see measuring instructions) will have a gap between the shutter frame and the window opening. Caulk can be used to fill the gap. If the variance is 1/2" or more, we usually recommend an outside mount. The minimum depth required for an inside mount L-Frame shutter with 2 1/2" louvers is 2 1/8" with a front tilt bar & 2 5/8" with a hidden tilt bar. For 3 1/2" louvers, the minimum depth is 2 1/2 with a front tilt bar & 3" with a hidden tilt bar.
  • Outside Mount L-Frame: Outside mount L-Frame installations require a minimum of 1 3/8" of flat space to mount the frame. The minimum depth required for a 2 1/2" louver with front tilt bar is 0" for a front tilt bar & and 1/2" depth for a hidden tilt bar.  For a 3 1/2" louver, the minimum depth is 1/2" for a front tilt bar and 1" for a hidden tilt bar.
  • Tilt type: Choice of front tilt bar or optional hidden tilt bar
  • Louver Size: Choice of 3 1/2" or 2 1/2" louvers
  • Divider rail: A divider rail separates the shutter panel into two sections; one above and one below the rail. This adds stability and provides the ability to open and close each section independently for increased light control. A divider rail can be positioned to cover a window sash. The divider rail is optional on single and double panel shutters up to 60" in height and required on shutters over 60" in height. On all four panel shutters, a divider rail is required if the height is greater than 50".
  • Divider rail location: You may choose to simply center the divider rail in the middle of the panel or you can specify the location of the rail. For inside mount shutters, measure from the top of the window sill to the center of your desired rail location. For outside mount, measure from the outside edge of where the bottom shutter frame will be mounted to the center of your desired rail location. If your window has a sash, the most common location for the rail is the center of sash. The factory will position the rail in the center of the measurement you specifiy with a variance up to 1 1/2" depending on the louver count of the panel.
  • Panel type: The panel type is determined by the width of the shutter. Some widths have a choice of two different panel types. In most cases, we recommend ordering the least amount of panels possible as fewer panels provide a more open view.
  • Widths 6" to 19 7/8": Must be single panel. One shutter panel with choice of left or right hinge location.
  • Widths 20" to 36": Can be single or double panel. Double panel shutters have one panel on the left and one panel on the right and open in the center.
  • Widths 36 1/8" to 39 7/8": Must be double panel. 
  • Widths 40" to 72": Can be double panel or four panel.
  • Widths 72 1/8 to 96": Must be four panel. Four panel shutters have two hinged panels on the left side and two hinged panels on the right side opening in the center. Each pair of panels fold together and open outward.
  • Side by side shutters: Specify side by side shutters if the shutters will be mounted near other shutters of the same size or close in size. When a side by side shutter is indicated, we will align the louvers, rails, and frames of the shutters as closely as possible for a uniform appearance.
  • Protruding window sill: Z-Frames mounted to windows with a sill that protrudes outside the window opening will have a flat bottom frame that rests on top of the sill. The bottom frame stabilizes the shutter and reduces light gaps.
  • Inside mount width deduction: 1/4" for Z-Frame; 1/8" for L-Frame 
  • Outside mount: No deductions. Specify exact width and height of shutter including the L-frame from outside edge to outside edge.
  • Minimum panel width: 6"
  • Minimum panel height: 16"
  • Maximum panel height: 96" 
  • Please Note: Our shutters are designed for square and rectangular windows only. We do not offer shutters for arched, curved, or specialty size windows.

Measuring For Inside Mount Shutters

INSIDE MOUNT Z-FRAME & BULLNOSE Z-FRAME: These frame styles are mounted onto the edges of the window opening providing the look of a trim-cased window frame. Z-Frames can be installed in windows with up to a 1/2" variance between your 3 width and 3 height measurements. Windows with a protruding sill will have a flat bottom frame that rests on top of the sill.

  • Minimum Depth for Inside Mount Z-Frame:
  • 2 1/2" louvers: front tilt 1 1/4"; hidden tilt 1 3/4"
  • 3 1/2" louvers: front tilt 1 3/4"; hidden tilt 2 1/4"

INSIDE MOUNT L-FRAME: This frame style is mounted inside the window opening, fully recessed and flush with the wall. Inside mount L-frame installations in windows that are not perfectly square may have gaps between the shutter frame and the window opening. Caulk can be used to fill the gap. If the variance between your 3 width and/or height measurements is more than 1/2", we recommend an outside mount L-frame.

  • Minimum Depth for Inside Mount Z-Frame:
  • 2 1/2" louvers: front tilt 2 1/8"; hidden tilt 2 5/8"
  • 3 1/2" louvers: front tilt 2 1/2"; hidden tilt 3"

STEP 1: Measure the depth of the window opening and make sure it has the minimum depth required.

STEP 2: Measure the width of the window opening in three places (top, middle, bottom) and record the smallest measurement to the nearest 1/8". If rounding is necessary, round down to the nearest 1/8".

STEP 3: Measure the height of the window opening in three places (left, center, right) and record the smallest measurement to the nearest 1/8". If rounding is necessary, round down to the nearest 1/8".

STEP 4: If the window has a sill that protrudes outside the window opening, Z-frame shutters will have a flat bottom frame that rests on top of the sill.

NOTE: When ordering an inside mount shutters, you will order the exact window opening size, not the size of the shutter, to the nearest 1/8" with no deductions.

Measuring For Outside Mount Shutters

OUTSIDE MOUNT L-FRAME: This frame style is mounted outside the window opening onto existing molding or trim, a wall, or a door. These frames require 1 3/8" of flat space around the window for mounting. If you are mounting this frame onto existing molding or trim, it must be flat and at least 1 3/8" wide.

  • Minimum Depth for Outside Mount L-Frame:
  • 2 1/2" louvers: front tilt 0"; hidden tilt 1 1/2"
  • 3 1/2" louvers: front tilt 1/2"; hidden tilt 1"

STEP 1: Measure the depth of the window opening and make sure it has the minimum depth required.

STEP 2: To determine the width to order, if you are mounting the frames onto exiting molding or trim, measure the width from the outside edges of the molding in three places (top, middle, bottom) and record the largest measurement. If rounding is necessary, round up to the nearest 1/8". If you do not have molding, measure the window opening and add at least 3" to your width measurements.

STEP 3: To determine the height to order, if you are mounting onto existing molding and you have a protruding window sill, measure from the top of the sill to the outside edge of the trim above the window opening. If you do not have molding and you have a protruding sill, measure from the top of the sill to the top of the window opening and add at least 1 3/8". If you do not have molding or a protruding window sill, measure the height of the window opening and add at least 3". If rounding is necessary, round up to the nearest 1/8".

STEP 4: Measure the height of the window frame including trim, from outside edge to outside edge, in three places (left, center, right) and record the largest measurement. If rounding is necessary, round up to the nearest 1/8".

NOTE: Outside mount L-frame shutters are made to the exact sizes you specify, including the frames from outside edge to outside edge.
