    Serena Roller Shades Options for 4 panel Sliding doors

    I am wondering what the best way to go about designing a shading option for
    my 4 panel sliding doors. The middle 2 doors slide away from each other.
    Would the best thing to do to clear the door handles is do an outside mount
    over the framing? Any assistance would be great. Want to make sure I cover
    all the options before I make the big purchase.

    Personally, the goal for me is to minimize the light gaps between the panels. Then it becomes a question of aesthetics.

    Is there room for an inside mount without increasing the light gaps? Otherwise, I would go outside.

    I think there is room for an inside mount. Since the 4 panel door is wide (16 feet) can lutron make 1 shade that wide or should I be looking at 2 shades or more? My concern with the inside mount is clearing the door handles. With an outside mount with spacers that would solve that potential problem I would think.

    Serena can go up to 8' wide. Triathlon can go up to 12'. If you plan to use the Triathlon in a Caseta system you will need the PRO bridge.

    The fabric is another limitation. Some fabrics are not available in 8' widths and some can not be railroaded.

    Sivoia QS can span that distance but you will need a wired power supply. You may still get some deflection which will cause sagging in the center. I believe the PRO bridge will support QS Wireless. The tube is going to huge and the fascia will be 6-8" square.

    Thank you for your reply. With Serena shades what would you recommend then? two 8' wide shades or four 4' wide shades?
    Outside Above framing of door mount with spacers or inside mounts?
