The most popular way to inside mount your plantation shutters, an L Frame gives you the ability to square the frame inside your recess and mount your panels. An L Frame also acts as a light block, preventing light from coming through the edges of the panels. The simple L frame comes in two sizes (Small L & Medium L) to perfectly fit inside or outside your window frame.
The Z Frame is mounted directly to the inside of the window frame, with a bull-nose lip going around the outside of the window frame or plaster, thus hiding any gaps or imperfections. A great solution for windows that are out of square or have no existing architrave.
There are a range of L and Z frame styles which can either create a big shutter presence or a minimalist compact appearance.
Some framing examples
Direct mount, pivot hinge or frameless shutters give a clean, modern look. The only constraint with direct mount shutters is that your window opening must be perfectly straight. Although newer houses still have plenty of issues with windows not being straight, this can still give you a clean look.
The reason you would choose to use framing is if
- you like the look. (loads more variety), or
- the windows are not straight and you need a neater finish.
Bifold shutters allow you to open your shutters fully to one side or evenly to equal sides. Perfect for opening up to views or outdoor areas.
Sliding shutters are ideal for sliding doors, as the operation mimics the sliding door. Simply slide the shutters to one side of the door or window to gain fast and easy access.
Like the bi-fold shutters, these shutters also move along a track. But instead of folding out on each side, these shutters slide past each other to neatly stack on either side of the fixture.
Clearview tilt with split tilt
Centre tilt with midrail
Split Tilt Options
- The split tilt rod allows you to open or close sections of your shutter blades separately, giving you greater light control and privacy.
- Allowing flexibility, you can close the lower portion of your blades for privacy, whilst leaving the top section open to still let in light or an open view.
- Split tilt options are available for plantation shutters with or without a midrail.
Mid rails provide stability and strength to the plantation shutters.
The most common position for a mid rail is in the exact centre of the panel.
It is also common to place the mid rail at a natural break, eg. as there is on a double hung window; where winders are situated or a horizontal mullion.
