INSIDE-MOUNT INSTALLATIONS - CONSIDERATIONS & OPTIONS
All wood products expand or contract over time as moisture and climate conditions change. Transoms, windows, niches, and other framed openings made with wood are subject to these characteristics.
Due to these characteristics, inside-mount installation into framed openings can present challenges with sizing because these openings are seldom square (measurements are not even on all sides).
Templates are recommended for all inside-mount installations. Some shapes require a template as noted on the "Shapes" section of this form. If specified, you'll need to make a template of the framed opening and send it to us. We will scan your template and create an electronic file that can be used to manufacture your Tableaux to ensure a more perfect fit.
A deduction creates additional space between the Tableaux Decorative Grille and the mounting surface. This allows space for expansion & contraction and accommodates minor width/height tolerances.
Taking a deduction means we will make your Tableaux Decorative Grille smaller than the overall dimensions you specified. So, a 1/8” deduction means we will take 1/8” off the dimensions on each side.
Available Options & Hardware for Inside-Mount Installations
- Lateral-Set Screws (standard hardware, no additional cost) - Screw holes are pre-drilled into the border of your Tableaux at various points. Holes in your window frame should then be marked and pre-drilled. Screws should penetrate the window frame by at least 1/4" for secure installation. A hex driver is provided for your convenience.
- Hinge & Catch Magnet (standard hardware, no additional cost) - Hinges and catch magnet hardware are provided for your installer. This option allows easy-access to clean windows behind your Tableaux. May be limited by size/weight of Tableaux. An additional 1/8" deduction will be taken to allow for hinge depth.
- SnugSeal™ Gasket (specialty hardware, surcharge applies) - An optional soft foam rubber gasket is pre-attached to the outer edges of your Tableaux Decorative Grille. SnugSeal™ eliminates minor light gaps (up to 1/4") between the sides of your Tableaux Decorative Grille and the uneven edges of an inside-mount opening. A deduction will automatically be taken off the dimensions you provide to accommodate the addition of the gasket. SnugSeal™ is color-matched to the finish color you specify for your Decorative Grille(s). Lateral-set screws are included.
Other Options (NOT provided by Tableaux)
- Trimming - Trimming is millwork, primarily molding and/or trim used to frame-in windows, door openings, walls, or other framed openings. Your installer/contractor will be responsible for providing the necessary materials and labor for this option.
TABLEAUX DOES NOT PROVIDE INSTALLATION. YOUR INSTALLER/CONTRACTOR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SECURELY INSTALLING YOUR DECORATIVE GRILLE(S).
