The difference between ready and custom made Shelter Shutters is that the custom made shutters will fit the window exactly and ready made or stock sizes will generally be slightly larger than the window. Custom made Shelter Shutters are made with spacers (if needed) already attached to bring the shutter flush with the molding surrounding the glass. Ready made shutters come with spacers that you apply if needed, on the job site. Ready made shutters ship within three working days and custom made shutters take two weeks to produce and ship. A good rule of thumb is use ready made shutters on most door windows and custom made on the doors with panic bars and door pumps in the way.

Our original "screw on" strike plate comes with a tiny screw capable of installing almost anywhere on a door. Our best seller is our 7/8" round "stick on" strike plate that simply presses in place. The other strike plates we offer are custom sized. When a door has a raised molding surrounding the glass and that molding has a very narrow "face width" you may require custom strike plates. We can help you choose the right size and shape of custom strike plate when you send us a completed "Custom" shutter measure form.
Narrow windows will have side mounted strike plates and wider windows that require our multi fold shutter will need installed in the center top and bottom, as indicated by the red arrows on the photos here. The two photos on left show a wider window with our Multi Fold Shelter Shutter open and closed. The photos right show our Single Fold Shelter Shutter both open and closed.
