Plantation shutters may be mounted over the glass on French Doors or over sliding Patio Door openings as either Bypass or Bi-Fold arrangements.
Installing plantation shutters over sliding patio doors is an elegant alternative to the typical vertical blind or heavy drape treatment. Shutter arrangements can be sized all the way up to 16 feet wide! Sliding ByPass or Bi-Fold shutter units use track systems that give a dramatic new look to ordinary patio doors. ByPass shutters slide on the two upper tracks that allow all sections to slide for access through door, similar to sliding closet doors. Bi-Fold shutter units are single track systems that allow more exposure of the opening when stacked, but will extend into the room the width an individual panel. There are many panel arrangements possible: splits, slide right, slide left, double and triple section. So please call us to learn more about how plantation shutters can be used to make almost any ordinary patio door into something special.
Shutters on French Doors eliminate the banging of blinds as the doors are opened and closed. The shutters mount directly on the face of the door over the glass area. When installing shutters on your windows throughout the house, there is no need to compromise by using a different window treatment on your doors.
