Measuring for an Inside Mount



In this article:

What is an inside mount shutter?

An inside mounted shutter is when the shutter fits just inside your window recess. An inside mount can use an L-Frame or Z-frame, and will work with most types of architraves.

HOW TO MEASURE FOR INSIDE MOUNT

Measuring for an Inside Mount will vary slightly depending on the style of your window. Once you have identified your window, you can follow the below instructions for measuring.

The process will be the same for an L-Frame or Z-frame. We recommend having a friend or family member with you to check measurements.

You will need:

  • Metal measuring tape
  • Paper
  • Pen

Before starting, double check that there you have at least 70mm clearance for your recess. If there are any obstructions, remember to measure from the obstruction to the wall.
