Naturally, an inside-mounted shutter sits within your window frame. Many regard it as the sleeker and more modern way to install one's shutters, providing you have sufficient depth. There are three inside-mount frame options possible:
|Minimum Depth Requirements|
If installation occurs in a window opening without a protruding sill, the inside-mounted Z-Frame will extend around 28mm onto the face of the wall - See Illustration 2. However, if the sill is protruding, the base of your shutter frame will end at the top of the sill - See Illustration 1.
The decorative trim face of the Z-Frame will cover most of the apparent inconsistencies or any light gaps created due to the window frame not being precisely 'square' and will hide deviations of up to 5mm on either side of the frame

Then, take the smallest measurement and use this as the size you place on your order to us.
