SHUTTER INSTALLATION

SHUTTER INSTALLATION Installing shutters is an exact procedure and requires a great deal of skill by a professional. Openings are very rarely square, and whilst many framing options help cover gaps, you will need to adjust and level out framing in order for panels to operate freely. A good fitter is one who can use initiative to trouble shoot at the time of installation, and/or at the time of check measure. The following information is by no means a guide for a beginner to install shutters, it is simply a guide to explain how shutters are supplied, labelled and put together. All hardware for operating shutters, and frame screws are supplied, however fixing screws and screw caps (covers) are not supplied. We suggest you keep a range of fixing screws to suit all substrates, such as timber, concrete, brick, tile, aluminium etc. Sticker caps are the most commonly used method to hide screw holes, as well as the most cost effective. Snap on or push in screw caps can also be used however these can be quite costly and really only recommended for heavy duty fixing. All holes for assembling frames at the mitre joints are pre-drilled, however fixing holes are not. It is up to you pre-drill fixing holes yourself as fixing points will vary from installation to installation. You will also need to supply your own sealant, or multi-purpose filler such as No More Gaps, to hide any noticeable gaps when inside mounting L frames. It is advisable to use a good quality brand to ensure the gap fill maintains flexibility and endures the sunlight without discolouring. PACKAGING 1. Panels and frame are supplied in separate cartons for multiple panel layouts. Item numbers will match for cartons belonging to the same line number. 2. Single panel layouts are supplied already assembled in frame. 3. Labels list the carton number as well as the total of cartons per order, such as 2 of 10 etc. 4. Polystyrene blocks protect panel corners 5. Ribbed plastic sheets protect panels. 6. Frames are bound together in plastic packaging. 7. Hardware boxes are packed in frame cartons. 8. Hinges and tracking hardware is pre-attached unless otherwise specified. 9. Top tracks are pre-attached unless otherwise specified. 10. Wheel carriers are supplied assembled in top track. 11. Bottom tracks are supplied loose with double sided tape. UNPACKING 1. Ensure all cartons for the order have been received, ensuring item #’s match. 2. Assemble a trestle table or lay a blanket on your workspace area to protect the shutters. 3. Use a box cutter or utility knife to open cartons and carefully remove packaging. 4. Refer to stamp at top of panels and stand panels in correct order. 50

FRAMED SHUTTER INSTALLATION 1. Frames will be labelled as left (L), top (T), right (R) and bottom (B). 2. Lay the frames face up on your protected workspace, following labels clockwise. 3. Mitres on frame corners are joined using a nylon key (Hoffman Key) for OPUS, and metal brackets for ENCORE to hold the frame together to maintain squareness. Push each frame piece together halfway on each key until mitres are neat then push until the Hoffman keys are flush with back of frames, or push frames together on metal brackets for ENCORE. OPUS FRAME MITRES The maximum frame or board length supplied is 3657mm. Anything over this size will be supplied with Hoffman Keys, dowels or brackets to join lengths together onsite. ENCORE FRAME MITRES 51
