Yes, it can be designed to be on a sliding track, like a moveable louver system.

Can this louvered panel be purchased or ordered somewhere? If so, where and how much? - I want to semi-enlose the back porch, meaning I would like to have these panels I can roll across the enclose or roll back to open the back porch. The opening is 112 inches high and 16 feet across. Not sure how wide the louvered panels are in the picture. Mainly to keep birds, leaves, sun, etc. out but be able to open most of the time.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The Dogtrot House
Operable sliding louvered panels allow privacy and the ability to modulate the sun and air when needed. I could imagine these being equipped with insect screens, creating a sleeping porch for cool fall nights.
John Hill added this to The Lower-Cost, Low-Tech Modern Home
Another view of the breezeway shows how it can be closed off with sliding doors to cut down on breezes and increase privacy.
Porch House at Miller Ranch, Texas, Lake Flato ArchitectsIn this contemporary take on a "dog trot" house, operable sliding slatted screens on each side of the semioutdoor space allow privacy and the ability to adjust exposure to sun and air as needed
Views to the adjacent structure connect interior and exterior spaces, establish a comfortable human scale and expand the perceived size of this indoor/outdoor room.
