Residential Swing Doors
Swing Doors create an ideal entryway or interior door in residential applications. With matching transoms and sidelites, as well as complete mulling options with operable windows, swing doors can create a grand entrance. Traditional flair can be added with a French door with passive hardware sets, or a sleek modern aesthetic with a combination of window & door sizes all utilizing the same framing.
Commercial Swing Doors
Our Swing Doors create a thermally enhanced entrance to any business. Commercial systems can be ADA compliant and equipped with standard push/pull hardware and locking mechanisms. Panic hardware is also available upon request. Commercial terrace doors are often used in hotels, restaurants, and clothing boutiques. Solar Innovations® can also provide screen systems for our commercial exterior doors.
Terrace Doors, or single swing doors, are a single panel opening used in both internal and external applications. Terrace Doors are commonly used in both commercial and residential applications as entrance doors. They are also a convenient addition to a Folding Glass Wall, Slide & Stack Glass Wall, or other operable wall as a point of entry without operating the entire unit.
French Doors, also known as a dual swing doors or double swing doors, consist of two door panels that close in the center. French Doors do not require framing between the two panels, providing an unobstructed opening. These classic doors are commonly used in traditional structures and business entryways. Passive hardware sets are available for an elegant mirrored appearance.
Dutch doors, also known as split doors, half doors, barn-style doors, and stable doors, consist of two independent panel doors stacked atop one another. With Dutch Doors, the top panel can be opened while the bottom panel remains closed, making them ideal for childcare facilities or any location with animals. Solar Innovations®’ Dutch Doors are available in single and French door configurations and can be all glass, glass upper panels with solid lower panels, or all solid panels.
Custom sizes and mulled configurations are available. Fully custom doors can be designed as well, including custom shapes or archways.
Swing Doors feature similar panel and hardware design as Solar Innovations® operable walls and structures, creating a consistent appearance throughout any project. Our terrace and French doors are designed to be seamlessly integrated into several different door, window, mulled, and operable systems, including the European, Mulled, and International window systems, which will provide matching sightlines and create one cohesive unit.
The thermal break separates the aluminum and minimizes conductivity of heat and cold from the inside to the outside to ensure a structure’s interior remains comfortable at any time of year.
Our systems have the option to be both coastal and non-coastal. By using stainless steel hardware our hardware and material withstands the corrosive effects of the elements in these coastal regions.
Solar manufactures not only its products but also many of the components it uses for the hardware. This allows us to better control lead times to help server our customers better.
Solar’s products are manufactured with outstanding thermal performance, durable framework, and sustainable materials making it a great option for your next project.
