This continuous hinge is made of two parts which slide together for easy installation and is made out of aluminum to avoid rust. This hinge is sold in 4 foot lengths to be cut to whatever length is needed. This hinge allows the Bermuda or Bahama shutter to be removed easily when not needed by simply sliding sideways. This hinge set can be painted to match shutters or hardware. Works for shutters 1 3/4" thick. See illustrations below for measurements and installation.
