What type of shutter hinge is right for me?
Well, that's going to depend on the way you mount your shutters. You first should check to see where you are going to mount you shutters within your window frame. Take a look at our measuring instructions to help you with this.
After you have decided where you will mount your shutters look through the list below. With each hinge you will find the different ways they can be used.
How many hinges do I need?
For shutters that are 54" in height and under 2 hinges (1 pair) can be used per shutter. For shutters over 54" in height we recommend 3 hinges (1.1/2 pair) be used per shutter. If your shutters will be over 90" in height it is best to go with 4 hinges (2 pair) per shutter.
What hinge should I use for Bi-fold shutters?
Any of the hinges below can be used to attach one shutter to another. However, if your shutters will have an overlap rabbet you will need to use either the surface mounted back flap hinge or the non-mortised hinge.
All Interior Hinges are priced per pair.
