This is video 1 in a series of videos that explain how to measure, assemble and install interior vinyl shutters, watch on our youtube channel.
Find out how to measure a typical double glazed recessed window, it’s a UPVC window and has a horizontal transom rail and protruding handle which means any moving louvre blades need to miss the handle.
You can see from the video that you need to measure in front of the handles, this also allows for the recess to be angled, i.e if the width gets smaller nearer the window.
The basic measuring rules are to measure in 3 places across the width and height. (You will need the smallest size for ordering)

Measuring tip – measure across the diagonal, if the window is square both sizes should be the same.
