Shutters add charm and elegance to your home as well as providing a layer of privacy and protection from the harsh outdoor elements. For shutters to function properly, you need to install them inside your window casings. Precise measuring may be necassary, allowing for only a quarter-inch spacing around each shutter.
Once you have properly sized shutters to hang, you simply mount the bronze shutter pintles to the window casing and attach the bronze shutter strap on the shutters. To prop the shutters in the open position, consider adding bronze shutter dogs.
Center the shutters in the window casing for alignment.
Slide a bronze shutter strap onto a bronze shutter pintle. Using a carpenters level, ensure the alignment of the pintle/strap is straight up and down.
After marking the window casing for pintle placement, drill pilot holes for upper and lower shutter hinges.
Next, center the bronze shutter strap over the lower rail and mark the hardware screw hole openings onto the shutter and casing.
Attach the bronze pintle.
Now, mount the shutter straps onto the pintles in the window casing to hang the shutters.
With soft lines and a freeform profile, a flowing contour highlights the artistry of our bronze shutter hardware. With its rugged texture and weathered finish, our bronze shutter hinges are a crowning accent for your colonial, tudor or other rustic style of home.
Once installed outdoors, the metallic bronze gate hardware darkens to an old-penny brown then eventually to a greenish/blue patina. These colors compliment the browns and greens in nature and do not distract from the natural beauty of the landscape.
