How to Install - Inside Mount

Installation Tool Kit - What you will need to install your Shutters


  • A grey lead pencil
  • A small cordless drill to pre drill holes if required.
  • Pre drilling your bracket holes will avoid splitting your timber, particularly if you have an older style house. It is also recommended for outside mounts.
  • Cordless screwdriver (Recommended)
  • Depending on the window frame material you will be installling your shutters into, make sure you purchase appropriate the Installation Screws - Timber, Masonary or Aluminium
  • A step Ladder if necessary
  • A leveler

Step 4 - Finishing the look

As shutter frames are not a tolerance fit, it is ineviable that you will end up with some gaps between the window frame and the frame of the plantation shutter.  

These gaps can easily and quickly be filled using 'No More Gaps'.  This process will eliminate light from coming in between the 2 frames and your shutters will 'pop'.  

This process is the finishing touch required to give you that professional custom made finish.

Trouble Shooting

|

My panel doors are not closing properly

Check that your shutter frame is square and level and that you have used the appropriate packers during the installation. 

A frame that is out of square will result in panels that are out of square. 

Adjust the squareness and level of your shutter frame to fix this issue.

My panel door is not holding on the magnets

Sometimes you need to slightly move the striker plate to make it sit evenly across the magnet.

During the squaring process the magnets may have become slightly out of alignment and this adjustment will assist.  

If this fails then you could fit an additional magnet - 4 kg hold strength (available at Bunnings) to hold the panel closed.

The pin that connects the blade to the tilt rod has broken

Purchase a Plantation Shutter repair kit from our Spare Parts section.

Each Repair kit contains 1 x Spring loaded pin, 1 x Standard pin & 1 x screw for the tilt rod.  

Use these kits to re attach the blade back onto the panel.
