Sliding Glass Door Shutters: Fort Myers’s Elegant Alternative to Vertical Blinds When you want the right window treatment for your home’s sliding glass door in Fort Myers, plantation shutters are a stunning solution. Long-lasting and exquisite, these sliding shutters are becoming the favored choice to old-fashioned and flimsy vertical blinds. We bring you plantation shutters in Fort Myers in two different configurations, based on the space available next to your home’s sliding glass doors. Sliding Shutters: Bypass Configuration Bypass shutters are made up of at least two sets of shutters that slide on a track above them. With the bypass configuration, one panel set moves in front of the other, letting you access your door. This configuration is perfect for spaces where there isn’t a lot of space for shutters to go in front of the doors. It also works just as great in an area where there is limited room on either side of the doors. Sliding Shutters: Bifold Configuration Bifold shutters consist of two sets of shutters that open by folding out from the center and are maneuvered by a top-mounted track. With the bifold configuration, both panels fold back to back, letting you have ultimate access to your glass door. This configuration is perfect for when the view is important – and you have room to fold the shutters aside to take full advantage of the view. How Do We Design Sliding Shutters? To begin, we measure the width and length of each section of your glass door. Next, we note if there’s room next to the doors. This helps us figure out whether a bypass or bifold configuration should be used. Then, we go back to our shop and order the hand-crafted plantation shutters that fit your doors and configuration. Using a combination of cutting-edge computer software and design templates based on the dimensions of your door, we design and manufacture your home’s sliding glass door shutters with the colors and finishes of your choosing. Our professional installers put up the sliding shutters on your sliding glass doors, making sure that the louvers can be opened and also that the panels are movable. This provides you with a wonderful view and simplifies cleaning your shutters.
