SLIDING GLASS DOORS
Motorization options, pocketing possibilities, countless custom configurations, and expansive panel sizes make our sliding glass doors a flexible design element that complements any space.
Slide Into A New World
Solar Innovations® Aluminum Sliding Glass Door Systems expand the view of any living space or commercial area. These systems can be used as external entryways or transitions between two interior spaces. Solar’s acoustical sliding glass door systems are the ideal solution for projects that have high sound transmission class (STC) requirements. Although 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 systems allow for a 1 3⁄8-inch insulated glazing unit and are a standout product in the industry because they combine enhanced acoustical performance, superior thermal performance, and outstanding functionality.

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®’ 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.
Solar Innovations®’ 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 conference rooms, hotel banquet rooms, and adjustable classroom settings. The doors can also be customized with glass options or solid infill panels to create unique and versatile solutions for your project.

If you’ve ever been in need of more space, a pocketing sliding glass door system from Solar Innovations® may be just the solution. When opened, these types of doors recede into a wall pocket that fits all of the panels inside. Pocket doors are popular in applications where there’s a desire for large, open expanses. Not only do pockets maximize the usable width of the open door, but they also allow for easier foot traffic and increased accessibility.
No Post Corners
If you want a truly uninhibited view in your project, consider having a no-post, or open, corner application implemented. The no-post corners can be utilized in 90 or 135 degree corners where two panels meet without the addition of a corner post. By utilizing these, corners can be opened up completely and dissolve the barriers between your indoor and outdoor spaces. These are a popular choice in high-end residential and commercial applications.
Modern architecture requires modern glazing solutions. For structures with curved walls, our radius sliding glass door provides a solution for opening large spans of glass. These movable walls are available in motorized or manual operation and can incorporate a pocketing configuration for all panels to recede into the wall when open.
A true radius sliding door configuration contains curved panels with curved glass that slide along a curved track.
A segmented radius sliding door configuration contains flat panels, each at a different angle, that slide along a curved head and sill to give the appearance of curvature.
Motorized Sliding Glass Doors
Solar offers a motorized option for our sliding glass doors, which are typically used for taller or wider panels. Motorized doors can be controlled several ways via wall mounted switches, exterior security keypads, or by remote control. There is also a specialized “crawl mode” feature that slows down the door during the closing process. This prevents harsh impact and is similar to the soft closing option on cabinets and doors. If you already have an existing sliding glass wall, no worries—Solar’s motorized sliding system can still be incorporated.
“I am more than satisfied with our sliding doors. No one in our area had seen anything like them in a home and the value compared to other products like our sliding doors makes yours an easy “1st choice”. Our contractor, as well as the window and door subcontractors, has brought others planning a new home to our site to show off the look and functionality of a glass wall that slides into a pocket, thus opening our living area to the great outdoors.”

“We saw what I think were your doors in Sarasota, FL at a home we stayed in and would love to consider them for an add-on to our home as the quality and slide were top notch – multiple track sliding glass doors.”
