For varying heights of shutters, use the following quantities of hinges per shutter:

Height from 12" to 48", Two hinges per shutter

Height greater than 48" to 76", Three hinges per shutter

Height greater than 76" to 102", Four hinges per shutter

L-Hinges and Flat Hinges are the only approved hardware for storm rated mounting. L-Hinges are typically
used at the top and bottom of the shutter. Flat Hinges are used between L-Hinges when 3 or 4 hinges are
needed.

The L-Hinge is shown for instructional purposes. If a Flat Hinge is being used, follow the same installation
methods.
 

Classic shutters Collection Mounting Instructions

1. Measure and mark hinge locations as shown. The top and bottom hinges are typically placed 1" from the ends of the shutter.   measuring for shutters installation
2. Align the hinge to the outer edge of the shutter and to one of the marks previously measured. If a Polycarbonate Mounting Screw is in the way, remove it. aligning shutters hardware
3. Using the hinge as a template, drill 1/4" holes through the shutter. Make sure the drill bit is square to the shutter in all directions. The holes MUST be drilled straight. drill bit is square to the shutter in all directions

1. Hold the shutters in place in the window opening. Using shims, position the shutter in the opening to create an 1/8" gap around the top, bottom, and hinge side of the shutter. This is only necessary when mounting the shutter in an opening. The 1/8" gap does not apply for overlap conditions.   holding shutters in place in the window opening
2. Identify the locations of the Pintels on the wall and mount each Pintel pointing in the upward position, except for the bottom pintel. See anchor specifications above for correct fastener. identify the locations of the pintels on the wall
 
3. Mount the bottom Pintel in the downward position. See anchor specifications above for correct fastener. Mounting the bottom Pintel in the downward position prevents the shutter from lifting off.
