How To Measure Your Window for a Cyclone Roller Shutter

Height Measurements:

Height Measurement Guide Height Measurement Guide

Ensure you measure both sides of the window and use the smallest of the two sides as your final measurement.

On Wall installation (OW)

OW is optional in its placement: to the eaves or above the window, or level with the window, or partly in the window space, etc, to your preference.

Please note: The overall height of the Roller Shutter is to the top of the head box, so if the head box is above the window or door use the table below to calculate the overall height of the Roller Shutter.

The head box increases in sizes from 150mm 165mm 180mm and 205mm in relationship with the height; see the table below.

Please note: On wall (OW) has greater flexibility and is more accepting of 'out of square' windows.

Please note: When the Roller Shutter is fully open, the bottom bar of the curtain will still protrude out from the bottom of the headbox by about 20mm.

In-Reveal installation (IR)

IR is determined by the sill and above-window opening (lintel), as illustrated above.

Please note: In-reveal (IR) allows for zero margin for error in measurements.

 

Width Measurements:

Width Measurement Guide Width Measurement Guide

Ensure you measure both sides of the window and use the smallest of the two sides as your final measurement.

On Wall installation (OW)

For OW, the overall width of the roller shutter is the window opening plus the width of the guides.
Roller Shutter Guides: 69mm wide each, and there are two (x 2),
So, total width of shutter = width of window plus 138mm.

Please note: On wall (OW) has greater flexibility and is more accepting of 'out of square' windows.

In-Reveal installation (IR)

IR width is determined by the window aperture at its smallest point (e.g. the top of the window may measure 1200mm but the bottom may measure 1203mm and the middle measures 1205mm - your measurement should then be 1200 for overall width).
If the head box is to be fitted at the narrowest point ( as described above ) reduce the width by 1mm to 1199mm so you know that the head box will fit between the opening.
If the narrowest point is at the bottom stick to that measurement.

Please note: In-reveal (IR) allows for zero margin for error in measurements.

Please note: That some outward opening windows and doors many not open with In-reveal (IR) installation. The guide is 69mm wide and may interfere with outward opening windows and doors; in this case On Wall installation may be your only option.

 

Head box Sizes

In case you are wondering "But how far will that 'Box' thing stick out?", the table below shows the relationship between a Roller Shutters' size and how big the Head Box will be.
The height of the head box for the BC45 is the same as the width of the box (i.e. 150mm box is 150mm high x 150mm wide). BC45 Headbox

Roller Shutter Height
Includes Head box
Head box Sizes
Up to 1300mm 150mm
Up to 1700mm 165mm
Up to 2135mm 180mm
Up to 3000mm 205mm

Please note: To comply with the Cyclone Rating the shutter must be fitted with a Bottom Guide to the full width of the exposed curtain, allowing the curtain bottom bar section to close down into the bottom guide section.

Please note: To comply with the Cyclone Rating, the shutter must be 4 square meters or less in overall size.
