Many homes have wide windows that look wonderful with internal window shutters, but obviously, every customer is keen to make sure what they purchase is guaranteed and will be durable. With this in mind my current guaranteed panel sizes and widths are as follows:
If you just want one panel on a single wide window you can order any material up to a width of up to 750mm. However, this width can only be made in a single shutter. Wooden shutters can be made in a width up to 1047mm with 89mm louvres. If you need two or more panels bi-folding together the maximum guaranteed width for any shutter is 550mm per panel. For wooden shutters, this width increases to 660mm per panel.
My standard shutters can be made with a maximum of 2 panels bi-folding together, so up to 4 panels across a window, 2 left and 2 right.
Standard Plus, Elite, Basswood and Cedar
All of these materials are light in weight, so are able to be made with up to 4 panels bi-folding each side of your window, so a maximum of 8 panels with 4 folding left and 4 folding right. The total width of the 3 or 4 shutters must be less than 1320mm. This would mean that it is possible to cover a window up to 2640mm wide with 8 bi-folding internal window shutters.
Very wide openings
If you have a window that is wider than 2640mm and would still like internal window shutters there are options to make this possible. For example, the panels and shutter frames can be mounted on T posts, used to match the design of the windows, these can then extend the width of the window that can be covered.
You can always track mount for wide windows, this is ideal if you have a wide and tall opening such as a wall of windows or several sets of French doors.
If you have any queries about your opening and what’s possible its easy to make an account on my website and send me photo’s, I am happy to offer advice and answer any questions you may have about internal window shutters.
