Sliding Plantation Shutters
A timeless style that’s increasing in popularity across homes in the Gold Coast, sliding plantation shutters are a trend that’s here to stay. Also known as bypass plantation shutters, these window treatments are defined by their horizontal slats and feature sliding shutter panels that mimic the action / motion / design of your sliding door.
Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters is proud to provide the highest quality of sliding plantation shutters for windows and doors. Because we specialise in custom products, you are assured that you’ll receive the perfect fit for any window or door in your home. Our expert installation technicians can also install them professionally for you, so you know you’ll get the best performance and aesthetics when it comes to your folding plantation outdoor shutters and window shutters.
Why choose sliding plantation shutters for your indoor and outdoor space?
Not only do they look sophisticated and help you easily control light and ventilation but they are also extremely safe. If you have kids or pets around, there’s no need to worry about cords as our plantation shutters are naturally cordless. They can also help bring your bills down by keeping heat inside or outside, as needed. Finally, they’re a great solution for when you need increased privacy without compromising beauty.
Our sliding plantation shutters can be made using a range of materials, colours and design layouts. Choose from aluminum, timber shutters or pvc shutters for your rolling or sliding plantation shutters. We can also install plantation shutters over sliding doors, in addition to your windows.
The Gold Coast Blinds and Shutters difference
We know how important it is for you to have a robust and long-lasting product. That’s why we’ve taken great care to ensure our hardware is far superior to our competitors: our sliding tracks, wheels and runners are all sourced from Australia’s leading architectural door hardware manufacturer. The “moving parts” of sliding shutters are critical, especially on the Gold Coast, due to their proximity to the salt air.
Furthermore, we custom fabricate all of the sliding shutter units onsite using premium materials that are custom painted in our paint booth. This results in a more durable product that fits perfectly in the home for a seamless installation.
Lastly, we excel at our custom sliding shutters due to our large amount of woodworking machinery.

How much do sliding plantation shutters cost?
Sliding plantation shutters are considered a premium window covering and are on the more expensive end of window treatments for sliding doors. However, they are functional, beautiful, and last longer than alternatives.
Can they be used as patio doors and windows?
Yes! If you have glass sliding doors and windows on your patio, plantation shutters can help add charm and character to your outdoor area.
How big can I make the sliding plantation shutters?
Sliding plantation shutters can be made up to 6m in width and 3m in height. However, at these larger sizes, they can be extremely heavy. A professional measure and quote would be needed to determine whether they are suitable for your specific application.
Can the shutters be painted?
Yes, we can paint your plantation shutters to any colour you desire. We work closely with interior designers who can match the colour to your existing walls to ensure the final look is aesthetically pleasing.
How do I care for sliding plantation shutters?
Keeping your sliding plantation shutters clean has never been easier. For wood plantation shutters, wipe each slat with a dry or microfibre cloth. For PVC or aluminium shutters, mix water and mild detergent together and gently brush each slat. Once a week should be enough to maintain your shutters for years to come.
Why are sliding shutters called bypass shutters?
Sliding shutters are also known as bypass shutters because the configuration allows the panels to slide past each other on top tracks. This means that you can effortlessly open and close your shutters without any obstruction.
