Measuring Shojis

Accurate measurements are essential to providing the cost for shojis, to custom manufacture to the precise size. The size must be accurate for the shoji to properly fit the opening.

Inside mount or outside mount

Taking measurements will vary depending upon whether the shoji fits within the window opening (inside mount), overlaps the window opening (outside mount), or is mounted to the ceiling (ceiling mount).

Rounding your measurements

Dimensions should be accurate to within 1/8". With outside mounts, round your measurements up or down to the nearest 1/8". With inside mounts, always round down to the nearest 1/8".


Measuring for inside mounts

Measure the width inside the window opening at the top, middle, and bottom. Measure the height inside the opening at the left, right, and center. Order the narrowest width measurement, and the shortest height measurement. Remember to round your measurements down to the nearest 1/8''. Be sure the opening is deep enough for the number of tracks you are selecting.

Measuring for outside mounts

Measure the desired width and height. To minimize light leakage, it's recommended that the shoji overlap the opening at least 2" on each side. When measuring the height, take into account the left, right, and center measurements.
