Did you know there are many options when considering plantation shutters for you sliding glass doors? The many options of shutters allows you to customize the shutter the way you want to have your window coverings set up. There are two different options to consider on where shutters are installed to maximize the view, style and over all structure of the entire window opening. Most times we have a choice between inside mount and outside mount, depending on the situation we have. A majority of times an inside mount option is preferred meaning the shutter will be mounted inside of the window jamb. Inside mount shutters are the ideal opening for by-pass shutters. Why would inside mount shutters be the most desired mount? An inside mount uses the interior of the window opening for installation, the interior also provides depth for shutters to be recessed into the opening. This mount options helps with the depth of the track system, which is 4 ½ inches up to 7 ½ inches. The shutter will protrude into the room a few inches, by inside mounting we counter the protrusion of the system into the room therefore taking up less space. Another option is an outside mount by-pass system. Why would an outside mount option be needed? Perhaps the glass opening suggests an outside mount due to obstructions or to offer the best design solution to suit your needs. The depth of the window jamb will be the determining factor. Sliding glass door shutters are also called By-Pass shutters since the shutter panels slide on an overhead track system in which the panels slide past each other. There are 3 primary track systems used to slide the panels back and forth, there are 2-Track, 3-Track and 4-Track systems. The particular size track depends on the opening of the window, the design and need of the customer. While many customers ask for their shutters to be installed inside the opening of the window, there are customers who ask for shutters to be installed outside the window so they can create a stack off system. A stack off systems allows each shutter panel to place outside the existing window opening when the shutter is not in use; this option allows maximum use of a view.
