Tracked shutters offer ultimate light control and privacy in windows or patio doors of any size

Whether you’ve got a period property or just want to add some traditional style to aIn larger rooms – or rooms with especially wide windows – the standard hinges that are used to mount shutters sometimes won’t be strong enough or don’t offer a practical opening solution.

This is where a track system comes in – neat and unobtrusive guides that support your plantation shutters to open smoothly and optimise space.

Track shutters can be fitted to your space in one of two ways. With the by-pass system, panels glide past each other on their own tracks, whilst with the bi-fold, they simply fold out of the way.

Both the bi-fold and by-pass shutters have a smooth movement along the top track that ensures they are easy to use and maintain.

If you have a larger window or opening, then a track shutter is for you.

It enables more panels to be hinged together, transforming your space. These stylish track shutters have a smooth movement along a top track using either a Bi-Fold or By-pass system.

  • Bi-fold or by-pass systems
  • Glide smoothly on a track
  • Ideal for room dividers
  • Excellent for patio doors

Track shutters are perfect for larger windows

When you trust Shuttercraft to install flawless shutters in your property, you don’t have to worry about the finer points of installation – but it is useful to understand why track shutters might be the best option for you.

When shutters are especially wide, the weight of the real hardwood can put a lot of strain on the fixings and mechanisms that let your shutters open and close.

Over time, fittings may sag – becoming misaligned or difficult to open and close. In some cases, overly-heavy shutters can even cause damage to the area they’re mounted in.

Track systems do away with this strain completely – suspending the weight of your shutters across the full width of the window.

Installing a track system makes it far more practical to have shutters spanning large spaces – such as French doors, patio windows, extra-wide windows, wardrobe doors or even large glass doors and glass dividing screens in an office environment.

Ultimate light control and privacy for large windows

Large windows are unbeatable when it comes to letting in natural light – but privacy can sometimes be an issue.

Choosing track shutters for your home means you won’t have to compromise in any way though – as you can control the light while keeping your property private.

The easily adjusted louvres in your shutters will mean you can shut your room off from any eye-level attention without closing out the sunshine.

Of course, each shutter panel can be adjusted to let in just the right amount of light – so you can adjust your slats as the sun works across the sky.

Track shutters are generally made up of multiple panels, giving the impression that opening, closing, or adjusting will require a lot of strength and effort.

Tracked shutters for bathrooms, kitchens, and swimming pools

Although we recommend premium hardwood for most window coverings, natural wood doesn’t always respond well to moisture and humidity.

With this in mind, we created our Java range – water-resistant ABS shutters that are virtually indistinguishable from our real hardwood shutter panels.

If you’d like the benefit of shutters in a kitchen, bathroom, or even a room housing a pool or hot tub, Java track shutters are a perfect choice.

As well as being water-resistant, our ABS shutter styles are also extremely easy to clean – just a wipe from a damp cloth will keep them looking pristine.
