We'll look at the ways sliding glass doors can change and improve a home, but first, let’s take a look at what sliding glass doors are really about.
Choosing sliding glass doors
Sliding doors are one of the most popular choices when it comes to exterior outdoor patio doors. A sliding door system does not open out like a traditional French door, instead, it efficiently moves inside a track to create a wide opening. Sliding glass doors can be fitted for homes with a small or large opening as are made to measure so that the doors open the full width of the panel.
The in-line slide design of a glass door is perfect for quick access to the garden or having the perfect indoor-outdoor flow to create the space needed. Modern sliding systems with large glass panels also increase natural light and make a fantastic feature for opening up small spaces.
Using sliding glass doors as an entry
Among the great key features of Sunflex sliding doors is the modernised operating system. A simple push or pull of the patio door engages the first sliding panel then the other panels are automatically opened and closed by interlocking followers. The bottom rolling floor-mounted installation means wide openings can be achieved without additional roof support.
Open views and home security
You will always have a beautiful and clear view with sliding glass doors no matter if it’s open or closed. The large fixed panels from top to bottom offer clear sightlines, especially when your frames consist of aesthetically pleasing slim profiles.
The Sunflex glazing strengthened 10mm safety glass providing protection from chalking, fading, pitting & deterioration. Sunflex sliding glass doors feature smooth, precise componentry, superior seals and a selection of two distinct systems, the SF20 Glass Sliding Door or the SF25 Glass Slide & Turn Door system.
