Doors Types and Options

Sliding Doors - As the name implies, sliding doors open by sliding horizontally and by design consist of at least two glass panels - one fixed and the other operable. They may consist of as many as four separate panels, two fixed and two operable.

Hinged Doors - Hinged at one side, these doors are available in single or double configurations.

Door Options

Width - The overall width of the product desired in feet and inches

Height - The overall height of the product desired in feet and inches

Materials - The material composition of the door frame (Vinyl, wood, aluminum, etc.)

Handing - If the door has a pane or panel that slides horizontally handing is used to specify which pane is the operable side. This method is base on looking at the door from the outside (exterior) looking inside (interior). It is notated as follows: A two panel door will be either XO or OX where O is the fixed glass panel and X is the sliding panel. A three panel door is available in O/XO where the operable panel slides from the center to the right and OX/O where the center panel slides to the left

Color - The color of the door frame. Typical colors are white, almond, tan and green and will change depending upon manufacturer and product type.

Frame Type - Various frame options are available depending upon how the door will be installed and the material of the wall it is installed into. The three most popular frame types are defined below:
Nail On -
Used for a new construction project.
Block Frame -A block frame door is used when replacing an old wood door.

Glass Type - There are a multitude of glass types and thicknesses available for various applications. Click here for descriptions of the glass types we offer.

Grid/Grille Pattern - A term referring to the pattern created by windowpane dividers or muntins, usually a type of assembly which may be detached for cleaning or is installed between two panes of glass. See Grid Pattern Page for configuration illustrations.

Breather Tubes - A small metal tube that is placed into an insulated unit's spacer to equalize pressure differences. Breather tubes can allow moisture to enter into the insulating unit.

Argon Gas - Argon is a safe, odorless, colorless, non-toxic, non-flammable inert gas that is commonly used in place of air between the glass panes of an insulated Low-E glass unit to reduce temperature transfer.

Low E - A common term used to refer to glass which has low Emissivity due to a film or metallic coating on the glass or suspended between the two lights of glass to restrict the passage of radiant heat.

Tempered Glass - Glass manufactured to withstand greater than normal forces on its surface. When it breaks, it shatters into small pieces to reduce hazard. Standard on all doors and large fixed windows.
