What size louvre should I choose for my window- When selecting a louvre / shutter consider the size of the widow and desired effect required. Generally larger windows require a larger louvre and smaller windows a smaller size louvre, and there are three different size louvers available. The other thing to keep in mind is where the frame of the shutter is to be placed, inside the window frame (reveal) or on the outside of the window opening, this may determine the louvre size for you depending on how deep the window is.
How many shutter panels will I need for my window- Our shutters smallest width size is 200mm and our widest is 900mm and in height we can go up to 3000mm but will have to add a dividing rail anything above 1800mm. This dividing rail can be positioned at an adjusted height to match your existing window rail.
