Bifold Bypass Shutters For San Diego Sliding Glass Doors
Indoor shutters are fantastic for sliding doors in San Diego. Shutters protect your privacy, control lighting, don’t sway like vertical blinds or shades, and will probably last longer than the sliding door itself. If you’ve already decided on sliding door shutters, the next decision to make is what shutter configuration would work best for your sliding doors.
Bypass Shutters For Sliding In San Diego
The more common of the two sliding glass door shutter options is the bypass configuration. In this setup, two or more shutter panels slide on a track mounted above the door. The shutters are offset so the panels slide over each other for access to the door. Or if there’s some room next to your sliding door, the track can reach past the doorframe to allow the shutter panel to completely slide away from the door.
Bi-fold Shutters For Sliding Doors In San Diego
As the name might tell you, bifold shutters for sliding glass doors are ones that fold. Instead of two large, solid frames that slide on a track, bifold shutters are built with smaller panels that fold into each other, clearing the path in front of your sliding door.

How much room do I need around a sliding glass door to install shutters?
With the amount of customization we have over our different shutter builds, we can design a set of shutters to match your sliding glass door, regardless of the amount of space you have above or around it.
How Are Sliding Shutters Built?
We begin by measuring the dimensions of each portion of your glass door. Next, we mark how much space there is next to the doors. This allows us to figure out if a bypass or a bifold configuration is best. Next, we go back to our office and order the hand-fashioned plantation shutters to fit those configurations. Using a combination of cutting-edge computer software and custom design templates based on your door’s measurements, we design and construct the sliding glass door shutters with the finishes and colors of your choosing.
Our skilled installers put up the sliding shutters on your sliding glass doors, double checking the louvers on the shutters can open and the panels are movable. This gives you a wonderful view and easier cleaning.
