EasyAS makes it simple to check the measurements of your windows. Follow our how to measure windows for shutters steps below and watch our video for hints and tips.

Our EasyAS ‘How to Measure Windows for Shutters’ guides you through the steps to make sure all dimensions are recorded correctly.

Once your windows have being measured using our guides below, you can move on to selecting the right EasyAS Shutter for your window(s).

Its is also important to note, EasyAS Shutters are currently only available to fit the inside of window frames. The inside of a window frame is also know as the window ‘reveal’. This type of fitting allows our adjustable outer frame to securely fit into the window frame.

NOTE: You can also use house plans while your house is still been built. But please remember, some house plan dimensions in the building industry are height x width. So please check with your builder first.

Measuring the width of your window opening

It is important to take three (3) measurements across the width of your window opening(s).

Take measurements across the widths noting each measurement. We will be using the smallest of the three. You can use our shutter planning guide to help.

Measure across the TOP, MIDDLE, BOTTOM

Measuring the height of your window opening

It is important to take three (3) measurements across the height of your window opening(s).

Take a record of all measurements across the height . We will be using the smallest measurement of the three (3). 

Measure across the LEFT, CENTER, RIGHT

Measuring the depth for obstacles

Make sure you measure the depth at different points throughout the reveal before choosing your shutter.

There needs to be a minimum of 70mm clearance between any obstacles and the edge of the window frame.

This helps prevent damage caused to panels and blades during opening and closing. Use our guide below.
