Sliding Glass Patio Doors: The “411”

Below are some key facts to know about sliding glass patio doors. This will help you decide if sliding patio doors are a good fit for your home.

  • Sliding patio doors contain two paneled sections. One section—you guessed it—slides across a track with hidden rollers. The other section of the door is fixed. Whether the door slides to the left or right is up to you!
  • Because of their design and how they function, sliding patio doors are often more practical than swinging patio doors. Why? Since sliding patio doors slide open from the side, they require less space than swinging patio doors. As such, sliding glass doors can be installed in areas where space is at a premium. This also means you need less space to keep your patio doors open to enjoy the outdoor breeze.
  • Sliding glass patio doors provide unbeatable outdoor views, sunlight, and ventilation. With today’s advanced glass technology, sliding glass doors are exceptionally energy efficient and protect from harmful UV rays. This A) allows the sunshine to pour into your home without dulling your interior furnishings, and B) helps lower your energy bills.
  • The highest-quality sliding glass patio doors in Charlotte include advanced security features, such as heavy-duty multi-point locking mechanisms. Today’s sliding patio doors helps keep your home and family safer than sliding patio doors made even 10 to 15 years ago.

  1. Curb Appeal

Unlike many vinyl sliding patio doors, ours do NOT have that plastic, boxy look.  Our exclusive sliding patio doors are custom-made for a slim and elegant appearance. The result is better curb appeal and more space for viewing glass. You can also choose from many of decorative and glass options to give your doors that perfect finishing touch.

Our patio doors help keep your energy costs low and your home a comfortable temperature year round.

  1. Advanced Safety Features

If you have old sliding patio doors, you’re likely familiar with the “wooden plank” trick. That’s where you insert a wooden plank (or an object of similar length) in the track of your patio door to prevent intruders from opening it from the outside. You don’t have to worry about that with sliding patio doors from Zen Windows. A stainless steel multi-point locking system securely locks your patio door into the jamb, so it is not possible to unlock it from the outside. A toe- or thumb-bolt delivers an added layer of security, while a key lock allows you to lock and unlock your patio doors from the outside.

  1. Smooth Operation

A heavy-duty ball-bearing system ensures a lifetime of buttery-smooth operation. A stout aluminum-capped threshold withstands heavy foot traffic with bare-minimum wear. And reinforced vertical sash stiles and a high-strength screen frame provide unmatched durability. This all adds up to sliding patio doors that perform for DECADES.
