Sliding Glass Door Shutters: Southern California’s Beautiful Alternative to Vertical Blinds When you want the right window treatment for a sliding glass door in Southern California, plantation shutters are the perfect solution. Durable and exquisite, these sliding shutters are becoming the favored alternative to outdated and frail vertical blinds. We bring you plantation shutters in Southern California in two different configurations, with respect to the space available next to your room’s sliding glass doors. Sliding Shutters: Bypass Configuration Bypass shutters consist of two or more sets of shutters which slide on a top-mounted track. In the bypass configuration, one panel passes in front of the other, letting you access your door. This configuration is great for rooms where there is not a lot of space in front of the doors for shutters. These shutters also operate well in an area where there isn’t much room on next to the doors. Sliding Shutters: Bifold Configuration Bifold shutters are composed of two sets of shutters that fold out from the center when opened and are maneuvered by a track above the shutters. In the bifold configuration, both panels fold back to back, giving you maximum access to your glass door. This setup is best for when the view is important to you – and there is enough space to fold the shutters out of the way to take full advantage of the view. How Are Sliding Shutters Built? The first thing we do is measure the width and length of each segment of your glass door. We also note how much space there is next to the doors. This helps us figure out whether a bypass or bifold configuration should be used. We return to our shop and order the hand-built plantation shutters to fit those configurations. Utilizing our state-of-the-art technology and customized design templates based on your doors, we design and manufacture the sliding glass door shutters ,integrating the finishes and colors of your choosing. Our skilled installers install the sliding shutters on your sliding glass doors, ensuring the louvers can be tilted and that the panels are adjustable. This offers you an open view and simplifies cleaning your shutters.
