How Are Plantation Shutters Mounted Over Sliding Glass Doors?
Following the measurements of the sliding door, an ‘effortless glide’ aluminium track is installed on the wall above the doors. This track becomes the mounting point for the shutters, ensuring a seamless operation. Thanks to nylon wheels that serve as carriers, the shutters glide smoothly without any jamming or skipping, providing a hassle-free experience. With ample wall space, the shutters can be effortlessly rolled off to both sides of the door, allowing for increased airflow, natural light, and visibility.
When it comes to bi-fold Plantation Shutters, the installation process varies, offering flexibility. These shutters occupy minimal space as they are mounted parallel to the wall, further enhancing their versatility and efficiency.
