Wood Swing Doors

A first impression that will last a lifetime.

FEATURES

Wood Swing Doors are side-hinged doors designed to act as primary or secondary entrances to a structure. These doors feature hardware similar to our operable wall systems in order to create consistency across a project utilizing multiple glazing systems and can operate in an in-swing or out-swing fashion depending on the constraints of your project. Matching sidelites and transoms create a full storefront or entry way system that impresses.

Available in wood and wood-aluminum clad, the finish of these doors can be closely matched to your existing space. For applications where the Wood Terrace Doors are exposed to the elements, Solar Innovations® recommends utilizing aluminum cladding on the exterior faces to ensure the longevity of the unit.

TESTIMONIALS

We just finished installing the 2nd order of folding glass wall systems into our client, Red Dot restaurant’s building. I decided to write this letter because I’m so impressed with your product. Both systems were well documented, packaged, and built. We have no detectable air infiltration in 15kt wind and it was 10 degrees out! You make a great product. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Just writing a quick note to say the greenhouse you fabricated and installed on the Concord, MA house we designed looks great, and has been a big hit with the clients. The GC told me the install crew did a good job. On the recent cold days we have had (before the heating system is up and running) it has been the favored place to hang out.

Hank Reisen | Reisen Design Associates

Our builder here in Morganton, NC – Cottonwood – is so impressed with your products in our home that they would like to incorporate big windows and doors into new homes they are designing and constructing.

Tracy and Rich Krause | Morganton, North Carolina 

The skylights are in, the sun is shining through them and they look great. Your installers were very professional and pleasant and left the job site in an immaculate condition. Thank you for all your assistance throughout this project. I am delighted to have my sunroom back!

Glazing choice plays a critical role in the performance of your folding glass wall. Most units exposed to the outdoors use insulated glass, which is constructed of two or more panes of glass separated by a stainless steel spacer and infilled with Argon gas. Performance is further enhanced with Low-E* coatings that allow the sun’s rays to pass through the glass while reducing the amount of heat transfer. U-values measure the amount of heat transferred through glass. The lower the value, the better it insulates. Monolithic, or single pane glass, is suitable for indoor applications, except where acoustic performance is desired. If you are looking for a particular glazing type, we can customize your doors to your specifications.

LOW-E GLAZING

CARDINAL GLASS INDUSTRIES

LoE 272 Cardinal Glass

LoĒ²-272*

LoĒ²-272 is the most common and has a very slight green tint and assists in regulating temperatures, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

LoE 340 Cardinal Glass

LoĒ³-340

LoĒ³-340 is used when the space needs to be shaded from intense direct sunlight. A coating is applied to clear glass, which blocks the sun and causes a soft blue tint.

LoE 366 Cardinal Glass

LoĒ³-366®

LoĒ³-366 is the best insulation choice. It blocks 95% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, which helps preserve the color and composition of furnishings, draperies, and wall treatments.

LoE 180 Cardinal Glass

LoĒ-180

LoĒ-180 is an ideal choice for buildings attempting to generate solar heat gain, particularly with cooling accessories. This glazing is popular for colder climates.

LoE i89 Cardinal Glass

LoĒ-i89®

This energy-saving fourth-surface, coated glass can allow for double-pane windows to meet ENERGY STAR® guidelines. LoĒ-i89 is applied to the indoor surface, preventing heat from escaping the room and lowering U-factors.

VITRO ARCHITECTURAL GLASS

Solarban 60 Vitro Architectural Glass

SOLARBAN 60

Solarban 60 allows 70% of visible light to pass through while blocking 62% of solar energy providing year-round comfort and energy savings.

Solarban 70 Vitro Architectural Glass

SOLARBAN 70

Solarban 70’s triple silver Low-E coating allows 64% of visible light to pass through while blocking 94% of UV energy, protecting indoor fabrics.

Solarban 90 Vitro Architectural Glass

SOLARBAN 90

Solarban 90 allows 51% of visible light to pass through while blocking 80% of solar energy providing year-round comfort and energy savings.
