Shutters For Sliding Glass Doors In Arizona – Southwest Blinds

Jun 06, 2017

Plantation shutters are one of the most popular window treatments in Arizona and most homes have a sliding glass door that will require a window covering. Why mix and match when you can have a beautiful Plantation Shutter for your Sliding Glass Door. Here is a short video explaining the types of sliding glass door shutters including Closed Bypass Sliding Shutters, Open Bypass Sliding Shutters, and Bifold Shutters on a Track.




Bypass Sliding Door Shutters

Here is an actual picture of a chestnut stained Closed Bypass Shutter on a Sliding Glass Door. Notice that the frame is constructed of 2 side legs approximately 1″ thick, 6″ deep, and 98″ tall. The header that holds the tracks is 6″ deep, 1 3/4″ thick, and covered with a decorative valance. The 2 tracks are installed under the valance and allow each shutter panel to move completely from left to right so that you can clean both sides of the glass. We typically do not install a bottom track unless a special request is made. Bottom tracks can be a nuisance to people entering in and out the door.

Bifold Shutter For Sliding Door

Here is a Bifold Shutter for a Sliding Glass Door. This option is not as common but works well in instances where view thru is important. Bifold panels can be folded off the glass to expose the window. Bifold Shutters can be made with and without a track.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters provided a remarkable product for a great value! We are extremely pleased with the job done. James is a true professional who stands behind his company on all levels. We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
