Bypass Or Bi-Fold Track Sliding Door Shutters- Which Is Best For Your Home

Are you looking for a durable treatment for your sliding glass door? Go with custom-built shutters from New View Blinds and Shutters for sliding glass doors! Our sliding shutters are permanently attached and slide or fold out of the way so that you can fully use the door. Our plantation shutters for sliding glass doors open and close with one easy tilt of the louvers, letting you go from the whole light to total privacy and anywhere between. With a divider rail, you can let in light up top and have privacy below. No cords, no railing, and no struggling to keep them from getting caught in the door like with other window treatments. Sliding door shutters offer privacy and light control, blocking heat and cold from passing through the glass. That makes them the perfect complement to any homeowner who prioritizes comfort and practicality.

Depending on the layout of your sliding glass doors and your preference, you can choose between two types of shutters, bi-fold track shutters and bypass track shutters.

Bypass Track shutters for sliding glass doors

Bypass track shutters slide behind each other on tracks for access to the sliding glass door. Multiple shutter panels slide on tracks mounted above a sliding glass door. For some, a drawback of bypass shutters is that with almost every configuration, there will always be a shutter panel over one side of your sliding glass door. Bypass sliding shutters for sliding glass doors are more substantial than bi-fold track shutters since fewer moving parts can become damaged or wear out.

Bi-Fold Track shutters for sliding glass doors

Another type of shutter that works well for sliding glass doors is the bi-fold track shutter. Bi-fold track shutters are constructed of hinged panels that fold up to save space and open up your doorway; bi-fold track shutters can be installed to open all in the same direction or toward both sides of the sliding door. It’s a good option if you want to have a full view since all the panels fold to one side. The bi-fold track shutters aren’t quite as popular as the bypass since it takes more time to fold the panels, which protrude into the room as they fold.

New View Blinds and Shutters’ sliding shutters are available in all types of materials, wood, composite, vinyl, and poly. We’ll help you compare and decide which one is right for you.
