The Z Delux Frame

The Z Delux Frame

What is a Z Frame?

A Z-Frame is named after the Z-shaped structure of the frame and is specifically designed for an inside mount.

“Inside Mount” means the shutter is mounted within the window frame, as opposed to outside it, creating a streamlined look. 

The dimensions of the Delux Z-Frame can be found below:

Not all windows are suitable for the Delux Z-Frame. Due to the nature of the frame, there must be no obstruction surrounding the window edges. This “obstruction” is typically molding/trim, tile, a door or another window (a window sill is okay). There must also be sufficient window depth for the frame to be mounted. 

The minimum depth requirements for a hidden tilt shutter are found below:
