What Are Bifold Shutters

When we say ‘bi-fold shutters’, we are talking about any shutter which has more than one panel while each is hinged together. They are shutters that fold back and sit flush against one another whilst open. These can concertina to the left or right (depending on where your window is), comprising of two shutter panels. And whether it’s Full Height, Café Style, Tier-on-tier, or Solid shutters you’re after, we’ve got you covered.

Why Bifold Shutters?

Folding shutters are ideal for when you want to open your shutters and tuck them neatly to the side of your window. Not only does this allow for maximum light, but it prevents the shutters from cluttering your room, too. And for added compactivity, our shutters come with subtle magnet plates on each frame, meaning that once folded together they remain tidy and secure.

Where to Fit Bifold Shutters

Because of their compact nature, shutters that fold back work brilliantly with all kinds of windows. If you have a window which sits close to a wall on one side, a set of shutters folding the other way are just what the doctor ordered. Do you have a wide window, or maybe a set of French doors? If so, bi fold shutters will be the best option. And while they are fabulous on larger windows, they can work a treat on smaller ones too. Remember, our shutters are always made to the exact specifications of your windows, so with small windows come smaller panels.
