How does the shutter fitting process work?

All of our shutters are bespoke. Our designers and surveyors will discuss with you in detail where and how to install TBC…

Where are shutters fitted?

Shutters can be fitted to windows, doors, glass roof spaces or used as partitions.

Tracked shutters

Patio doors and partitions with wide openings (over 2.5m) usually use a track at the top to suspend the shutters from. They may also need a bottom track to guide the shutters and keep them firmly in position. Tracked shutters can span very wide openings, in excess of 8m

Shutter options

Triangular and arched windows and doors, found in conservatory roofs, apex windows and architectural features and also typical shutter opening choices. Sometimes they are the only shading/privacy solution possible, but our shutters are very well suited, even if this is the case.

Window facts

There are two basic types of window in the UK, casement and sash.

Sash windows

Older sash windows are normally fitted flush or very-nearly-flush with the inside walls, which makes them perfect for fitting shutters to, as the shutters fold back against the walls when open and can be fitted to the sash box section that hides the weights. Newer UVPC sash windows can be trickier to fit to, especially if they are of the tilt turn variety – but luckily these are quite rare.

Casement windows

These open outwards and are fitted to the outside of the house with a windowsill, which normally measures around 8 inches (200mm). In these instances we try to fit as close the window as possible, whilst taking care that handles don’t hit louver blades. They opening perpendicularly, which means they protrude into the room about as much as a radiator would.

If you want shutters that fold back against the walls you need to fit flush with the opening. We have a ‘Z frame’ that fits around the corner of the reveal to makes this an easy, stylish option.
