Fixing arrangements

Callisto shutters can be attached to a wall in one of three ways.

  1. Standard face fix. This is the most common method of fixing Callisto shutters to a wall. It involves mounting the shutter onto the face of an opening.
  2. Standard reveal fix. The second-most most common method of fixing Callisto shutters to a wall is to mount them between reveals. This is common in doorway and cabinet applications, where there is no face to fix to.
  3. Face/reveal fix. This is where there is a face fix on one side of the shutters and a reveal fix on the other.

The Callisto EX37 range

At Norton, we sell and install Callisto shutters from the EX37 range.

EX37 are different from conventional shutters because they’re made from aluminium instead of steel.

The great thing about aluminium is that it’s strong like steel but it’s cheaper. This means that the EX37 range is a bit less pricey than steel shutters, Which is good if you’re on a budget.

Another advantage of aluminium is that it can roll up into small spaces. The tightly coiling nature of the EX37 allows it to roll within boxes as small as 15 cm, which is impossible for conventional steel shutters. This means that the EX37 range is the ideal solution where space is limited.

The EX37 comes in white or brown as standard, but it can be painted with different colours on request.
