Tracked shutters supplied and fitted in Whitstable, Kent.
Bi-Fold and By-Pass
We offer two styles of tracked shutters, Bi-Fold and By-Pass. Both styles utilise a track system (in the same manner as a sliding patio door). A small trolley wheel system enables each panel to glide open and closed. Depending on the style and location of the installation as well as the size of the panels required you will be advised as to whether both a top and bottom track is required.
Tracked shutter systems are perfect for installations where long runs of shutter panels are required. This could be a large by-fold patio door system for example, or perhaps simply a room divider. No matter the length of your window span we can supply shutters to fit. It all depends on the look and feel you want and the width limitations – we only manufacture up to a certain width to ensure the integrity of the shutter panel is at its highest.
When a window span exceeds the maximum shutter panel width that we can manufacture to we then have to look at a different way of getting the look and feel you want within the specifications we manufacture to.
Our Bi-Fold Shutters utilise hinges to fix multiple shutter panels together. These look fantastic in when in situ and should you wish to open your shutters, to access your window or patio door, each panel group will concertina together to the left and/ or right. The width of each panel, when folded back, will protrude into your room and this is something that you and your surveyor will consider prior to installation. We also offer Free floating version of this style of tracked shutters. These provide the same effect but you are not restricted as to where your shutters can fold into position along the track, as the end panels are not hinged to the side of the frame.
By-Pass shutters offer the same appeal as their Bi-Fold counterparts but instead of folding in a concertina fashion they actually are not hinged together but simply glide in-front or behind each other, providing the required access. These are great for partitions in rooms and also for wardrobes.
"I was Introduced to Danny at Pro-fit , by a friend of mine. He has since done a number of shutters, rails and blinds for myself and a number of my clients. He is always on time and keeps me informed at all time about deliveries and time scales. All of us have been extremely pleased with both the service he gives and the products.
Danny always listens to what effect I am trying to achieve and goes that extra length to track down new products for some of the more difficult window dressings." D Hanson, Canterbury
