French doors occasionally come with a lever type of handle which protrudes into the glass section of the door. In these situations, the French door will need a cut out. We, like most shutter manufacturers, offer a half circle and rectangular cut out. Typically a standard 4 1/4” half circle cut out is enough to accommodate most levers, though we also offer a 5 1/4” and 6 1/4”. Study the diagrams below to find your particular application.
The cut out plate is 1/2” thick. Custom cut outs are available (such as an oval) with a surcharge.
