Palmetto Outdoor Spaces
Johnleasa, Weatherwell Shutters are made from extruded aluminum and are perfect for enclosing an outdoor space. They are designed to withstand the elements as well as add style to your outdoor living area. Many colors and woodgrains to chose from. They can be installed as sliding units, hinged, multi-fold, and fixed. The louvers are operable as well. They block wind, rain, and sun when closed. Open louvers only to allow ventilation, but still offering privacy and protection. Open to get easy access to yard, pool, or lake. See the WindowOutFitters website. Made in Texas.

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

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Josh McCullar, AIA 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
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Explore the Magical In-Between Spaces
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.
