Bypass Shutters For Sliding In Charlotte
The more popular of the two sliding glass door shutter layouts is the bypass configuration. In this setup, two shutter panels slide on a track mounted above a sliding glass door. The panels 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 extend beyond the doorframe to allow the shutter panel to completely slide out from in front of the glass door.

As the name might tell you, bifold shutters for sliding glass doors are ones that fold. Rather than two large, solid panels that slide back and forth on a rail, bifold shutters are separated into smaller panels that fold into each other, clearing the path in front of your sliding door.
