Commercial Multi-Sliding Doors

Solar Innovations®’s sliding glass doors provide the perfect entrance to any business, restaurant, or resort. Commercial applications can include a pocketed option to remove the panels completely from view.  This integration is especially useful when incorporating a sliding glass door system as an interior dividing wall in commercial applications such as conference rooms, hotel banquet rooms, and adjustable classroom settings.  They can be customized with glass options or solid infill panels to create unique and versatile solutions.

Residential Multi-Sliding Doors

Sliding door systems are a unique feature for your home and can be used to expand the view of a bedroom, patio, living room, or even be used as an entryway between two interior rooms. Solar Innovations®’s sliding glass doors are available in both aluminum and vinyl-composite framing to meet the needs of each residential application. When the engineering allows, a pocket system can be added so the doors are completely hidden from view while open, creating an unobstructed view. Solar Innovations® also recommends the addition of a screen system for residential applications; both pet and insect screens are available to meet the individual needs of the specific project.

This flexibility makes them suitable for both interior and exterior applications. Solar has eight standard finish selections, including two anodized options, which have a stronger finish than paint and are ideal for commercial doors or windows. Wood and metal cladding are also available, as well as custom color matching to accommodate any number of applications. Sliding glass door systems can be designed with several custom decorative features including: grids, simulated divided lites (SDLs), interior muntins, horizontal mullions, and applied radius or Gothic corners.

Motorized Option

Solar also offers a motorized option for our sliding glass doors. This functionality is exceptionally useful when the system incorporates extremely tall or wide panels. There is also a specialized “crawl mode” feature that slows the door before closing to prevent harsh impact, similar to soft closing cabinets and doors. Motorized doors can be controlled several ways, including: wall mounted switches, exterior security keypads, or by remote control. Solar Innovations®’s motorized sliding system can also be incorporated into an existing sliding glass wall system.

Acoustical

Solar’s acoustical sliding glass door system is the ideal solution for projects that have high sound transmission class (STC) requirements. Though acoustic values are typically specific to the glazing selection, the construction of the frame can greatly influence the acoustical performance. Solar’s acoustical sliding glass door system allows for a 1 38” insulated glazing unit and is a standout product in the industry because it combines enhanced acoustical performance, superior thermal performance, and outstanding functionality.

Series SI8000 thermally enhanced muilt-track sliding door system is suitable for commercial and residential applications. Multiple sill options provide outstanding performance and design versatility. Telescoping sliding door system provides operability to open up entire exterior or interior elevations.
