Mounting Shutters

  • Inside or Outside Mount
    Most Hanging Systems may be used as Inside Mounts or Outside Mounts. Factors such as the squareness of the window opening, tilt window functions, obstructions and appearance should contribute to this decision.
    Note:  Deduction of 1/8" for clearance on inside frame hanging systems is recommended by Southern Shutter Company.

Hanging System Options

  • Direct to casing
  • Wrap-Around Hanging Strips - Inside or Outside Mount
  • 3 - Sided frames inside or outside mount (L- or Z-Frame)
  • 4 - Sided frames inside or outside mount (L- or Z-Frame)
  • Track Systems, in bi-fold or by-pass configurations.

Panel Layout

Let the window guide your layout. Each Character in the design layout code represents one shutter panel and its hinge direction. A dash is used to indicate a T-post or mullion.




L - Single panel hinged left
R - Single panel hinges right
LR - Two panels one left, one right
LLRR - Four panels two left, two right
LL-LR-RR - For triple window unit design layout, proportional 33% - 33% - 33%
L-LR-R - Picture style window, proportional 25% - 50% - 25%
Individual frame units placed side by side achieve the same effect as one larger unit with T-posts or mullions. Example: 3 Units: (LL) + (LR) + (RR) = LL-LR-RR
This is often best for ease of installation and handling.

  • Hardware
    Ready-to-install shutters are shipped with the necessary hardware in your choice of finishes, including antique brass, brushed nickel, chrome, oil rubbed bronze or white.

Special Instructions

  • Arch Dimensions: Provide low and high point of arch for quarter radius arches. For eyebrow or irregular arches submit template, radius or additional points (X,Y) coordinates on the curve.
  • Hardware: See Interior Hardware Page
  • Combination Shutter Options: Combining louver and panel sections is a common design variation. Indicate your layout from top to bottom. (Example: Louver over Panel -- L/P).
  • Mull or T-Post Placement: Specify non-proportional mull layouts by measuring from left to the center of the mulls or T-posts.

Founded in 1964 Southern Shutter Company has grown into one of the nation's leading wholesale manufacturers of functional exterior and interior wood shutters.
