Plantation Sliding ByPass Shutter Project
We make both Caribbean and Plantation Sliding ByPass shutters. This customer’s preference was to use Plantation (2-1/2″ wide) louvers for each panel and our standard hardware. Due to the height of the sliding bypass shutter panels, we include a lockrail that is generally located at the height of the door handle. This allows you greater control of the amount of light coming into the room since the upper and lower sections of louvers operate independently. These Plantation Sliding ByPass Shutters were stained to match the furniture in the room and hide the patio doors.
You can see that the header and hardware extend past the opening equal amounts to the left and right. For this project, the panels move past the door completely, leaving an unobstructed view to the outdoors. However, if you want privacy, the panels cover the entire patio door and both sections of louvers on each panel can be closed.
