What is a 'Window Opening'?

When you look at a wall, a window is placed in a hole or OPENING in that wall. This OPEN space is known as the WINDOW OPENING

What is a Windows' 'Reveal'?

The Reveal is the internal distance from the edge of  the opening(on the wall) to the Window itself.
If a 'Reveal' is present, Shutters usually sit inside the window Reveal.


What is 'Inside mounting' (inside mount or reveal-fit)?

When a shutter is installed inside the reveal we call it an inside mount/reveal fit shutter.
