Learn the basics of how to measure for Outside Mount Plantation Shutters in this short video.

When measuring for an Outside Mount application, many of the same principles for an Inside Mount application apply. Similar to inside mount application check for window depth, the difference with an outside mount is that you can extend or build out the frame by adding depth where needed.

Look for any obstructions such as Locks, Window Cranks, Latches, Mullions and windows that open into the room. The frame options for outside mounts include L-Frame, Casing-Frame, or Mounting Strip. Once the appropriate louver and frame has been chosen, record these items on the order form.

Measure the width in three places. These measurements should be taken from the left outside edge of where the frame will be positioned, to the right outside edge where the frame will be positioned. On an outside mount application you have the option of placing it on top of the window trim in place of removed trim or on top of drywall returns. Record the largest measurement within 1/16" of the width on the order form. The same rule applies to measuring the height, measure in three places -- left, center, and right - to the outside edge of where the frame will be positioned. Record the largest outside measurement this time within 1/8" for height on the order form.

When you measure for the divider rail, measurements start where the bottom of the frame will be located and go up to the center of the divider rail. Record that measurement on the order form. Divider rails must be used on panels over 60" in height
