There are many ways to fit shutters, there is no one way that is better than another. The most common way is to fit them onto the edge or inside of the reveal, you may also fit them outside the reveal.

Frames are used extensively these days and they do certainly offer a number of benefits. However, the UK housing stock, old or new, is generally brick block and plastered. The plastering is never straight and batten fitting may be more suitable for out of shape openings. Frames were devised for the US market, where the houses are made of timber frames, which are normally a lot straighter.

The main difference between frames and battens used to be in the hiding of the magnetic catches that hold your shutters straight, however now most companies fit with hidden magnets, even in the header strip battens, it’s just a different look.

We do offer an inside mount “L” frame, that can be planned to take out some curve in the walls but it may still be better to use battens if it is severe. Battens can hide a certain amount of window frames that are out of square but will never straighten out your walls entirely
