Sliding Plantation Shutters
Sliding Plantation Shutters Newcastle
Sliding Plantation Shutters slide multiple panels into one fixed panel on the side of your door, offering a sleek appearance for any home. Plantation shutters have fantastic thermal qualities to insulate your home from the fierce Australian sun, as well as providing control of light and privacy for your home.
Plantation shutters for sliding doors are often more cost effective than other options like bi-fold shutters. These plantation shutters have been cleverly designed so that the weight of the panels is supported within an integrated pelmet, allowing for a track free floor.

Most frequent questions and answers regarding sliding plantation shutters
This plantation shutter product has been designed to use on sliding doors. As each panel has to slide over the other one most window reveals don’t have enough room to accommodate this set up. However, the sliding shutter is an excellent option for sliding doors in bedrooms where privacy is critical, but you also want to maintain control of light and airflow.
In saying that, sliding shutters can be used in any location within your home. This is really up to the style your want for your home and which locations in your home can use them to provide the most benefit to you.
Classic has carefully designed this system so that the weight of the panels are supported by the pelmet and privacy side boards, which means no bottom track on your floor!
There are a couple of options. For the panels set up so they can slide with the blades in the open position the unit will project 190mm into the room, we can reduce this to 170mm if the panels slide with the blades in the closed position.
If you're choosing between bi-fold or sliding panels, we recommend sliding panels to our customers. There are a number of reasons for this, but the two main ones are:
- Sliding panels are easier to operate on an uneven floor, and do not require a floor track that could potentially be a trip hazard.
- When opened bi-fold doors come into the room further. Sliding panels don't come into the room any further when they're open or when they're closed.
