External roller shutters on sliding doors?

3 years ago

Hi, I am in the early stages of planning a renovation. It will involve removing a bedroom wall and built-ins to create an open plan living space.

I am planning on cornerless stacker or sliding doors, leading straight into the garden and outdoor area.

But I am stuck on window coverings. Is it possible that external roller shutters could replace the need for curtains or interior blinds? And also maybe prevent the need for double glazing?

These would be used mainly at night, so in winter the room could be heated.

Is this a stupid idea? I figured it may be cost effective as well as allowing completely unobscured views. I live in a subtropical zone and the glass doors would face east and south.

Any ideas on this?
