|Mounting options Requirement|
Measuring for Window Squareness
To determine the squareness, measure diagonally. If measurements are not equal, consider taking greater deduction on your sizes. If the two diag-onal measurements vary more than 1/2? you should consider an outside mount application.
Direct Mount Squareness
For direct mount, measure diagonally between corners to determine the squareness of the window. If the difference between the two measure-ments is larger than ¼? then an outside mount is recommended.
Measuring for Window Opening Size
Measure the window width and the window height in three different places.
Inside Mount: Take the smallest of the three measurements to determine the width and the height.
Outside Mount: Select the largest of the three measurements to determine the final dimensions of the shutter.
Measuring for Frame-to-Frame
For Frame-to-Frame measurements we will build the shutter unit (panels and frames) to your exact width and height you specify.
Frame-to-Frame measurement should be used when trying to fit a shutter in a locations with obstruction. For example, between kitchen cabinets. You will need to account for the frame for MFF.
Measuring Special Wall and Situations
Bull nose window condition
- For inside mount measure from the flat point inside the window.
- For outside mount measure from the flat point on the wall outside of the window.
- This is considered window size
- The purpose is to make sure the frame will be flat on the wall surface.
- Deco frames, L frames, or hanging strips can be used as outside mount options for Bull Nose wall condition.
- Z Frames or Hanging strips can be used for inside mounts.
- Always use a steel measuring tape for your measurements
-Measure each opening separately, even if they appear to be the same size
-Inside mount: If no frame is required, a Hanging Strip Frame is recommended to reduce all light gaps that will otherwise be apparent around your shutter panel
-Outside mounts: Recommended for window casings that are not perfectly square
-Shutter frames must be mounted securely, into wooden studs or anchor correctly in the drywall.
