WINDOW HARDWARE - Shutter Hinges - Strap Hinges

Question: How are the shutter strap hinges mounted?
Answer: Most shutter strap hinges are flush mount, where the strap attaches to the front of the shutter so that when the shutters are closed the strap is visible. In this case the outside of the shutter panel is flush with the window casing. Refer to the diagram below to determine the throw, or clearance, needed for your windows.

If the hinges are inset, the strap attaches to the back of the shutter so that when the shutters are open the strap is visible. In this case the outside of the shutter panel would be close to flush with the window casing. Refer to the diagram below to determine the throw, or clearance, needed for your windows.
