Plantation Shutters PVC - Window Mount

Inside Mount

Window recess depth

When measuring for inside mount frames, make sure that you have at least 65 mm clearance inside your window recess


Measure the hard width across the top, middle and bottom of the window recess.


Measure the hard drop from the left, centre, and right of the window recess.

Write down the smallest width and drop measurement.

Note: Special attention should be given to window openings that have window winders, latches, security devices, removable screens etc, because they may obstruct the frame. This will determine whether you select a 4 sided or 3 sided frame.

*Do not take any deductions (iseekblinds will do this for you)
