Sliding Glass Doors

SLIDING GLASS DOORS

Endless Possibilities

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 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.

Residential Applications

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.

Commercial Applications

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 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.

CASE STUDY: CUSTOM FOLDING GLASS WALL FOR HIGH-END RESTAURANT

When designing a three-story restaurant overlooking the Chicago River, a client approached Solar Innovations® for a custom Folding Glass Wall. The bi-fold wall would be located on the third story, which is designed as a high-class bar and lounge area with grand views of the city.

CASE STUDY: 20 FT. TALL MOTORIZED SLIDING GLASS DOORS

CASE STUDY: USING OPERABLE WALL SYSTEMS TO CONNECT RESIDENCE AND LANDSCAPE

Pocket Options

In order to completely open up a space, Sliding Glass Doors are available with pocketing options. When opened, the doors recede into a wall pocket that fits all of the panels. Pocketing options are popular in applications where large open expanses are desired. Pockets maximize the usable width of the open door, allowing for ease of foot traffic and increased accessibility.

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.

No Post Corners

No post corners, or open corners, are 90° or 135° corners where two panels meet without the addition of a corner post. These corners can be opened up completely to dissolve the barriers between indoor and outdoor, making them a popular choice in high end residential and commercial applications.

TESTIMONIALS

“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.”

Warren Center, Center Sliding Doors, Springdale, Arizona

“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.”

Carla Weber, Missouri
