Glass Bi-Part Sliding Doors
A sliding glass door, or patio door, is a large glass window that connects indoor spaces with the outdoors, providing access, fresh air, and natural light. It typically consists of two panels, one fixed and one mobile. Another design is the wall-sized glass pocket door that disappears into the wall.
Sliding glass doors are popular in Southern Europe and the United States for various settings, including hotels, condos, apartments, and homes. They offer expansive views, natural light, and increased ventilation. They are also used in offices and interiors for soundproofing and daylight penetration.
Glass doors can be externally or internally fitted, with the latter being more secure. They are often double-glazed, UV-treated, and may use faux grids for style.
Anti-lift blocks and portable security bars enhance security, preventing unauthorized access.
While glass doors are less thermally efficient, insulated frames, double or triple glazing, and thermal breaks can help. Proper sizing and window treatments further improve energy efficiency.
