Bifold Bypass Shutters For Bluff City Sliding Glass Doors
Plantation shutters are the best treatment for sliding glass doors in Bluff City. Shutters improve your privacy, block light, don’t sway like vertical blinds or curtains, and will probably last longer than the sliding door itself. If you’ve already decided on sliding door shutters, the next choice to make is what kind of shutters would best fit your sliding glass doors.
Bypass Shutters For Glass Doors In Bluff City
The more common of the two sliding door shutter builds is bypass shutters. In this setup, two shutter panels slide on a track mounted above a sliding glass door. The panels are offset so one-panel slides in front of the other for easy operation of the door. Or if you have room to the side of your sliding door, the track can extend beyond the doorframe to let the shutter completely slide out from in front of the glass door.
Bi-fold Shutters For Sliding Glass Doors In Bluff City
As the name implies, a bifold configuration for sliding door shutters allow the shutters to fold. Instead of two large, solid shutter panels that slide back and forth on a track, sliding door shutters in a bifold build are separated into smaller panels that fold inward, clearing the path in front of your sliding glass door.
