Glass door systems can be installed to a variety of applications from commercial applications such as an entrance leading into a building lobby or a residential application leading out to a balcony, but typically they are used in an interior application dividing one room from another, such as a entrance to individual office space, to dining rooms, to exercise rooms. This allows all the natural light to enter the specific area, bringing a sense of a much larger room along with the added privacy from outside noise.
Glass door systems offer an aesthetic and functionality nothing else can compare to. We provide a wide variety of external and internal applications ranging from frameless doors, to sliding panels, sliding glass bi-fold, stacking doors and pivot doors.
Sliding doors along with bi-fold stacking doors can be used in both internal and external application. These styles of doors provide you with the possibility to open up a room and bring the outside in or can even be used to divide a room off if required. If more living area is required,you can just stack them off to the side to create that open space. For example, glass doors in a den in a small condo can give the room a more expansive feel.
Even if the doors are closed, by using the all glass system it still allows all the natural light to come in without creating the visual look of a permanent wall.
The amount of light let in and the amount of insulation provided by glass doors depends on the type of glass used in each application.
Glass doors can be framed either in wood, vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum or frameless. (Total Vision) Varying the design can be done such as adding a sidelight or transom panel to allow for additional natural light and architectural detail. Decorative glass along with obscured safety glass can be a choice if clear glass is not a suitable choice. Choosing obscured glass will still allow a certain degree of light to enter the room with the aspect to limit the ability to see in or out.
