Plantation Shutter Installation

Inside Mount Options


Direct Mount: 

Primarily used when the window jamb is wood. The wood jamb provides a solid attachment point for the hinge. It is also used when the window dimensions are fairly consistent (within 3/16").

Utilized for inside opening mounts where the opening dimensions are uneven. The Z-Mold allows the frame to be installed in the opening square and even. The panels are square and need a consistent opening to fit properly.
