The World of Sliding Glass Walls, Windows, and Doors
May 30, 2023
Discovering the world of glass walls, windows, and doors is like finding an oasis in a desert. Glass walls, windows, and doors are beautiful, elegant, and highly practical and once you understand how they can transform your home or commercial space, there’s no going back.
Below, we’ll pull back the curtains on the world of sliding glass windows.
Types of Sliding Glass Walls, Windows, and Doors
A glass wall generally refers to an unmovable partition, but in the world of sliding glass windows, walls, and doors, this isn’t the case. In fact, walls, windows, and doors are often used interchangeably when discussing these wonderful sliding features. At Panda Windows & Doors, all of our sliding glass walls function as doors and windows and vice versa. We figure, why choose when you can have it all?
Glass Sliding Walls, Windows, and Doors at Panda Windows & Doors
At Panda Windows & Doors, you get three-in-one with our sliding glass walls and doors, a wall, door, and window, all wrapped into one beautiful and functional feature.
Sliding Glass Walls:
These versatile walls effortlessly blend indoor and outdoor spaces, creating a harmonious connection inside and out.
Horizontal Sliding Wall
Our line of horizontal sliding wall systems maximizes openings up to 100% by storing panels outside of the opening. The HSW Door System features customizable panel parking, allowing you to slide and stack the panels anywhere you choose.
The horizontal sliding wall is perfect for anyone who wants to have more options for opening size depending on the situation and need.
Sliding Glass Doors:
Sliding glass doors are the gateways to both convenience and beauty. They can maximize space inside while exterior sliding doors can open up your home to the outdoors. And let’s not forget the practicality of pocket sliding glass doors, which conveniently disappear into the wall, freeing up valuable floor space.
Multi-Slide Glass Doors
Multi-slide doors, also called telescoping doors or telescoping sliding doors, feature several large glass panels that slide in and out to close off or open up an entryway. They’re perfect for opening up large spaces and provide excellent views of your backyard or patio when open or closed. These doors feature bottom-running tracks and Delrin polymer rollers to deliver a smooth, easy opening and closing sensation.
Patio Glass Sliding Doors
Our line of multi-slide doors are a popular choice for patio doors. This type of glass sliding door allows for a seamless transition between the patio and home and is perfect for taking in those backyard views.
Lift and Slide Doors
Lift and slide door systems are the perfect option for anyone who wants to enjoy the convenience and elegance of sliding glass doors while also enjoying extra security and weather resistance. These doors use a proprietary system of levers and wheels which allows individual panels to be securely locked into the door frame to create an airtight and watertight seal. These door systems are built to withstand extreme weather, so you and your family can safely brave any storm.
Sliding Barn Doors
If you love the traditional farmhouse feel but also the natural light that glass doors deliver, a sliding glass barn door is a great middle ground for your home.
Benefits of Glass Sliding Walls, Doors, and Windows
Enhanced Natural Light and Views:
Imagine waking up to abundant sunlight pouring into your home, watching the sunset from the comfort of your home, or working in an office space that’s surrounded by the green of your natural landscapes. By incorporating a sliding glass window or interior sliding doors, all of this is possible.
Sliding glass doors maximize the available natural light, making your space feel brighter and more vibrant while connecting you with the outdoors. Plus, the panoramic views they offer can be absolutely breathtaking with interior sliding doors.
Improved Aesthetics and Design Versatility:
Who says functionality can’t be beautiful? Glass sliding windows bring a touch of elegance and modernity to any space. With a wide range of customization options available, you can choose the frame design, finish, and glass type that perfectly suits your style, allowing you to unlock the true potential of your home.
Space optimization and flexibility
Sliding glass doors make the best of the available space. They smoothly slide away from the entryway to connect one room to another or open it up to the outdoors, meaning less space is wasted compared to traditional hinged doors. Plus, with pocket doors, you can enjoy a 100% unobstructed entryway.
Glass sliding walls also provide an easy transition from one area to another. For outdoor venues or patios, they allow an easy flow of traffic and air, unbarred by the barriers of traditional doors.
Sliding glass doors also exhibit enhanced thermal performance, making them a highly energy-efficient option. The large glass windows allow you to control the amount of sunlight in the home so during cold days you can get more warm sunlight into the home to act as a natural supplement to your heater.
Furthermore, all of our sliding glass doors can be thermally broken. Thermally broken sliding walls, windows, and doors feature a reinforced polyamide strip that minimizes the transfer of heat and cold through the window frame. This will allow you to more easily control the temperature within your home without wasting additional energy on heating and cooling with the help of sliding doors.
Sliding Glass Wall Materials
At Panda Windows & Doors, we pride ourselves on giving our customers endless options when it comes to choosing the right glass sliding window or sliding doors for their home or commercial space. The materials vary depending on the type of sliding glass door you choose; however, we generally offer the following frame materials:
Aluminum frames offer strength, durability, security, and maximum weatherability. They’re lightweight and low maintenance and provide an overall sleek and modern look.
Wood frames are more traditional and add natural beauty to any space. Solid wood frames are available in a range of domestic wood species.
Aluminum/wood clad door frames combine the strength and durability of aluminum with the aesthetic finish of wood so you get the best of both worlds.
Frameless options are also available, such as our frameless horizontal sliding wall, for a truly boundary-free feel.
