But it also leaves all of your belongings and your family exposed to unwanted attention. Deflect the looks of passersby with a robust window treatment that doubles as a piece of art. No, we’re not talking about vertical blinds that have been a staple in Southern California households. We want you to know about sliding shutters for your patio door! With a track for smooth sliding, patio door shutter panels cover the entire length of the patio door. They can be built from durable Polywood® and Ovation® wood. You select the louver size, the paint, the stain, and the frame style. And our specialists custom craft your shutter and install it to your unique door. Features Of Patio Door Shutters In Southern California Plantation style shutters are an attractive window treatment for patio doors. Add a modern touch to your home with Polywood, and bring the warmth of wood inside with Ovation. Their louvers accentuate the decor of the room and frame the view. And they let you adjust how much of the light and view comes in through the glass of the patio door. All you have to do is adjust the shutter louvers with a tilt rod mounted on either the front of the panels or hidden in the rear. The shutters are adjustable for more privacy and less glare. That’s particularly important when a room contains a TV or computer screen. And if Polywood is your choice of shutters, slanting the shutter louvers closed results in maximum savings on power bills. That is what makes plantation shutters stand out from available window coverings in the market for patio doors - no matter what the style of patio door shutters is. One of the key options to think about is choosing between patio door shutters in the bypass or the bifold style. Bypass Style Patio Door Shutters Bypass style shutters work great on any patio door. Two sets of shutter panels move back and forth on a dedicated track installed above shutters. Slide one set in front of the other, and you have a full view of the outdoors and can use the patio door itself. Bifold Style Patio Door Shutters Bifold style shutters work best when there’s room in front of the patio doors so that the panels can be folded out. Two sets of shutters slide on a top-mounted track. And for more of the view and to open the patio door, just fold out the shutter panels.
