When measuring the window or door for a hurricane shutter, make sure that you are measuring from the inner walls or the outermost edge. For example, if the door is inset into the wall, measure

from the inner walls of the inset.

Procedure

  • Begin at the front door and work clockwise around the house.

  • For windows, horizontally measure from the inside edge of the opening. Then vertically measure from the inside edge of the top to the bottom. All shutters use a track system so make sure you then add at least 3in of flat surface to each measurement.

  • For doors, horizontally measure from one inside edge of the openings, vertically measure from the inside edge of the top to the floor.

Measuring for Accordion & Storm Panels

For Accordion and storm panels you will measure the outside of the opening. If the opening has a board around it you will measure outside of the border. If you would like to install the shutters on a board you must have at least 5 inches of flat solid board on all side.

Important: If you have a sill measure the height all the way pass the sill as it shows in the first picture. The tracks will be installed right under the sill.

Measuring for Rolldown

For roll down shutters you will measure the outside of the opening.

If the opening has a board around it you will measure outside of the border. If you would like to install the shutters on a board you must have at least 3 inches on the right, left and bottom. For the top you must have at least 8 inches.

Important Note: Please keep in mind the shutter box can be up to 8 inches so make sure from you also measure the space above your window. You will need at least 8 inches clearance to install the box.
