Measuring Midrails

For those measuring a window with multiple window panes, we recommend designing you shutters with a midrail to match the design of your window. A midrail is a fixed panel that is designed to cover a window transom (horizontal bar), usually located at the centre of the window. You can  choose to design your shutters with up to two midrails.

Measuring the Position of your Midrail

Measure from the bottom of the window to the middle of the point you decide upon.

  • For an inside mount, measure from the bottom of the recess
  • For an outside mount, measure from the edge of the architrave or bottom of window sill

If measuring for a second midrail, measure as above. (i.e. from the bottom of the window to the point of the second midrail).

A midrail point may be altered by +- 15mm to ensure that we can fit all louvres (shutter blades) evenly on your shutter. You can request to have a critical midrail, which means that it will be placed at the exact height specified. You may want to to do this if you have multiple shutters in a room and want all midrails to appear at the same height. (Please notify our team if you would like to have a critical midrail). 

NOTE: If there are two midrails required for your shutter, you may only select one critical midrail.

If you would like to add a Midrail, but are unsure of placement, you can select 'Equal Spacing' on Step 9 of the Design Centre. Our system will automatically centre and equally space your Midrail/s. 

 

Measuring Midrail for an Inside Mount with an Architrave

  • For one midrail, measure from the bottom of the recess to the central point of the midrail
  • For a second midrail, measure again from the bottom of the recess to the centre point of the second midrail
