What are folding shutters?
To understand what makes folding shutters different, it’s useful to understand how standard shutter styles work.
Plantation shutters are often mounted in a frame that fits around your windows. Each shutter panel then opens inwards on a hinge.
Folding shutters work differently though. Rather than being mounted on your window frames, multiple panels are installed on a discreet track system.
Rather than opening on a hinge, these panels slide back completely, folding like a concertina as they do.
Not only does a folding system allow for maximum light when open, it also means shutters can be installed on much larger windows – even wide patio doors.
