But all kidding aside, let us share some of the specifications associated with a by-pass shutter. If the panel width will exceed 38", two panels will be hinged together on the back with butt hinges and move as one piece. Rabbeted stiles are used where the two panels meet in a center opening unit. The top fascia is 4.5 inches. The rollers will hold up to 125 lbs per roller. The header and side legs are made out of 1" rail material. A 5/8" floor clearance is also provided and bottom runners can be included on all 2-way panels. These bottom runners are meant to keep the panels apart so that the tilt rods do not interfere with the movement of the panels, as well as keep the panels together.
We share this with you by way of informing you that a by-pass shutter track system for sliding doors is a significant piece of furniture for your window. In fact, we have provided shutter track systems for sliders that extend the length of the house. By using many tracks, T-Post supports and various panel configurations, we can create some amazing custom applications for a plantation shutter look across sliders of all sizes.
We would love to help you with your shutter project. Also, for your convenience, we provide an online cost estimator, so you can have a rough idea as to the budget for your project. If you would like an estimate for a by-pass track system, please contact us as we will need to gather some information about your project that requires human interaction.
