I have put together a video that explains and show’s you how to fit box bay window shutters.
This type of bay can be referred to as a box bay or square bay window and is describing a window that has a flat front window and two side returns at 90 degrees. You can install shutters on these box bay windows by ordering 3 separate frames and connecting them together at the corners so they form a right angle.
This is a UPVC window so it has large handles that protrude and means the shutter frames need to be spaced away from the handles to ensure the louvre blades can be operated. Battens are used to space the shutter frame away from the handles, the battens also form a flat surface that you can install the shutter frame onto them. If you have plastic trim fitted between the window frame and recess it can stop the shutter frame fitting neatly on the window. Battens can be shaped so they fit over the trim so you can still achieve that flat surface.
In this video, you can see how battens are fitted, and how the shutter frames are fitted onto the battens. You can also see how the individual plantation shutters are opened and closed and how Tposts are used in on the front frame to ensure the panels match the window layout and vertical mullions.
If you have any questions about this video, or you would like some advice how to design or measure your window so you can install shutters, please let us know.
