Fitting Guide

Once you receive your order you will need to fit the shutters. Follow our simple guide below to install your shutters.

  1. Unpack the components: Carefully unpack the plantation shutter components, including the frames, doors, hinges, screws, and any other necessary hardware. Ensure that you have all the required parts as per the product instructions.

  2. Build the frames: Follow the manufacturer's instructions to assemble the frames. Typically, this involves attaching the vertical and horizontal frame pieces together using provided screws or connectors. Ensure the frame is square and level during assembly.

  1. Prepare the window recess: Clean the window recess thoroughly to ensure a clean surface for installation. Remove any dirt, debris, or old window treatments that may interfere with the fitting process.

  2. Position the frame in the recess: Place the assembled frame into the window recess and centre it.

  1. Use a spirit level to ensure that the frame is straight and level both vertically and horizontally. Make any necessary adjustments to align it perfectly.

  2. Mark the frame position: Once the frame is correctly positioned, use a pencil to mark the screw hole locations on the frame. Mark them on all sides of the frame to ensure stability. Take care to mark the positions on the top, bottom, and sides of the frame.

  3. Pre-drill holes: Remove the frame from the recess and set it aside. Using an appropriate drill bit, pre-drill holes at the marked positions on the frame. The size of the drill bit should match the screws provided with the shutters.

  1. Fit the frame: Place the frame back into the recess, aligning it with the previously marked positions. Insert screws through the pre-drilled holes and secure the frame to the recess. Start by loosely screwing the screws and then tighten them once all screws are in place. Ensure that the frame is securely fixed.

  1. Hang the doors: With the frame securely in place, attach the doors to the frame using the provided hinges. Align the hinges with the pre-drilled holes on the doors and frame and insert the hinge pins to secure them. Test the doors to ensure they open and close smoothly

  1. Adjust and finalize: Check the alignment and operation of the doors. Make any necessary adjustments to ensure they fit properly and move smoothly. Double-check that the shutters are level, straight, and well-aligned within the window recess.

  1. Finishing touches: Once you are satisfied with the fit, trim any excess or protruding screws and clean the shutters to remove any fingerprints or dirt.
