The following information pertains to Vogue Shutters.
Standard hinged systems can consist of one or more shutter panels hinged in a variety of configurations. Single panels can be individually hinged or two panels may be hinged together from the frame in a hinged bi-fold design. They can be single hung or double hung with more options possible.
Bi-Fold on Track Systems allow up to 8 panels to be hinged together. Panels are connected to a top and bottom track, which both supports the panels and guides their folding movements. Panels must be hinged together in multiples of 2 to enable them to operate within the bottom track.
Shutter panels in a By-Pass Track System are not hinged. Instead, they slide on top tracks to open and close. The By-Pass System allows you to cover wide widths, and is a wonderful way to treat sliding doors to match the rest of your windows.
Note: Only the 64mm louvre will pass in the fully open position.
