MeasuringAtlantic Bahamas Shutters are designed to fit over the window opening, not into the trap.
When measuring, measure the width and height of the window opening and add 3" to both the width and the height. This allows the shutter to be 10" larger than the actual window opening on all sides.
The 10" overhang on both sides provides room to attach the tilt arms to the shutter.
Shutter height can be 10" taller than window opening rather than 3" if there is a sill in the way of closing.
Due to louver placement Shutter sizes are shown at 10" increment. Please take this into account for proper closing
MaterialOur shutters use premium materials and are intended to be substantial in weight in order to provide a strong and beautiful shutter that maintains a lifetime of structural integrity.
Stiles and Louvers – Using marine grade fiberglass that is impervious to the elements, our patented design offers the strongest and most durable frame available on any composite shutter today. This is the same fiberglass material used on luxury yachts and racing boats.
Rails – Uses Structural grade PVC which allows for customization of rail sizes

AssemblyEach shutter is hand assembled and individually built on-site in our facility to your exacting specifications.
We use specially formulated urethane adhesives that allow for a clean and smooth finish without nail, screw or rivet marks. These adhesives are the same used to hold fiberglass shells on automotive frames.

Every shutter receives a finishing process that includes two finish coats and a proprietary oven curing process to further strengthen and enhance the finish.
