The Benefits of Expansive Openings
Expansive folding and sliding door systems have become immensely popular, as they offer a variety of features and benefits.
Panda’s expansive glass door systems enhance living areas with natural daylighting and natural ventilation to deliver clean, fresh outdoor air. Using expansive openings to bring sunlight into a commercial space not only reduces the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours (without causing heating or cooling problems) but can also improve the health of building occupants.
When the View Matters
Large expanses of glass can not only help to maximize small spaces, but they also provide a deeper sense of connection to the outdoors by enhancing natural views. Properly designed modern systems offer sleek designs and slim profiles to enhance natural views with minimal obstruction whether the doors are open or closed. Some even offer optional recessed headers and jambs to create the illusion of floor-to-ceiling glass. Panda glass doors are engineered with clean lines to enhance natural views with minimal obstruction.
Vacation at Home
Systems that open and stack (or pocket) create the ultimate backyard retreat for entertaining or vacationing at home.
Double your living area. Create interior room dividers. The flexibility offered by Panda glass door systems is limitless. Glass door systems deliver the flexibility needed to open, close or divide interior spaces as needed. The possibilities are limitless with expansive openings, as glass door systems deliver the flexibility needed to open, close or divide interior spaces as needed in response to the needs of the building occupants or for energy efficiency.
Whether in extreme temps, high-force winds, or flooding… Panda systems perform their best when they are needed most. Our impact-resistant glass doors are built to withstand impact from driving rain, high winds, large debris, tropical storms, and even Category 5 hurricanes.
Panda Windows & Doors offer thermally broken options to help reduce the transfer of heat or cold into conditioned spaces. Overall, the energy efficiency of commercial and residential spaces has never been more important. The right construction makes it possible to meet energy needs and satisfy people’s expectations for comfort.
