Easy to Install
LEVOLOR Shutters have a number of features that make installation a breeze even if you have never installed a shutter before! Our frames snap tightly together – with the locking corner key. LEVOLOR Shutters’ unique 2-leaf hinge allows for panels to be installed (or removed for cleaning) easily by one person.
Our compound features a permanent finish that will never warp, shrink, chip, peel, crack or fade and never needs painting. Our smooth finish makes cleaning a snap with ordinary soap and water.
LEVOLOR Shutters will not warp or crack due to water exposure, and our tilt-bar is not attached with staples (unlike other brands) which can rust and break over time. They are ideal for use above kitchen sinks, bathrooms, or waterfront homes.
Polyresin 3® is fire retardant and self-extinguishing. It is safe to use in residential and commercial applications and meets (NFPA701) National Fire Code Standards.
LEVOLOR Shutters have been tested and certified for both GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality and GREENGUARD for Children and Schools. Visit www.greenguard.org for more information.
Child Safe Design
LEVOLOR Shutters are one of the safest window covering options for homes with children and pets. LEVOLOR Shutters do not feature dangling cords which can be hazardous to children.
Note: If diagonals are not the same, (less than 1/2-in difference) and the window does not have a molding, a décor trim frame is suggested to allow for easier installation. If diagonal measurement differs by more than 1/2-in, choose outside mount.
Note: We will add necessary adjustments to your window measurements so that shutter will mount directly around window. If you desire your shutter to be a specific width or height, order as exact outside mount finished size.
Special "MUST" Requirements:
To achieve a uniform appearance, as well as maintain an equal number of louvers in adjacent shutters, all shutters must be ordered the same height.
If the height measurements differ, apply one of the options below:
There is no extra charge for divider rails. Divider rails are required for shutter panels over 66-inches in height.
Two divider rails are required for shutters over 90-inches in height. Divider rails separate the top louvers from the bottom louvers. This allows the bottom half of shutters to be fully closed for privacy, while allowing the upper half to be open.
You can request the approximate height of the divider rail placement. For example, it may be necessary to match an existing window divider. Simply supply the measurements from the bottom of shutter to the center of the divider rail location.
It is important to note that the exact location may vary from the height you request. Location of divider rails may vary up or down by 1-1/2-in.
Note: Additional details are available in the How to Install Instructions PDF (above)
Panel locks are located at the top and bottom of a shutter panel. They are used to keep panels securely closed and can also be used to level the panel. Panel locks are standard for 4-sided frames and eliminates the need for magnets.
