Sliding glass doors are a popular choice when it comes to exterior doors in homes. High quality sliding glass doors make a distinctive change to a home – not only in terms of aesthetics but also the way it functions. Sliding glass doors open up the view, enable ventilation as well as wind and weather control, and allow generous amounts of natural light to enter the interior space.
Modern constructions lay emphasis on the thermal performance, quality and style aspects of various materials used in the project. Sunflex sliding glass doors from Louvretec Australia deliver the expected performance all year round.
With lots of styles of exterior doors and outdoor systems available out there, how do you know if sliding glass doors are right for your home?
Let’s explore how sliding glass doors can change and improve a home.
Choosing sliding glass doors
One of the most popular choices when it comes to exterior outdoor patio doors, sliding doors, unlike traditional French doors, efficiently move inside a track to create a wide opening. Since sliding doors are custom designed for each application, the size of the opening in the house is inconsequential; the door will 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. Modern sliding systems with large glass panels also increase natural light and present a great way to open up small spaces.
Simple, effortless opening
The modern operating system of Sunflex sliding doors only needs a simple push or pull of the patio door to engage the first sliding panel, with the other panels 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 safety
Sliding doors maintain your views regardless of whether they are open or closed. The large fixed glass panels offer clear sightlines, especially when your frames have aesthetically pleasing slim profiles.
Sunflex sliding doors use strengthened 10mm safety glass for the glazing, providing protection from chalking, fading, pitting and deterioration. Sunflex also features smooth, precise componentry and superior seals and offers a selection of two distinct systems, the SF20 glass sliding door or the SF25 glass slide & turn door system.
